1999 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible
1999 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible
Development of the Corvette began in late 1951 as "Project Opel" and was the brainchild of famed General Motors designer Harley Earl. In January of 1953, the world would get its first glimpse of the Corvette in concept form at the General Motors Motorama auto show in New York City. Six-months later, production versions of the Corvette began rolling off the assembly line in Flint, Michigan. However, by the end of the year, production was transplanted to St. Louis.
For consignment a customized Sebring Silver Corvette from 1999 in convertible form. With a Caravaggio deck spoiler, black/chrome Z06 style wheels red calipers hub and rotor covers, some chromed bling added under the hood like a K&N snorkel cold air intake, Borla exhaust, and plenty of interior creature comforts, this just may be your dream car awaiting your fantasy to be fulfilled.
Fully aero rounded design complete with hidden headlights some Daytona stripes, (did you know that these stripes were used at the big tracks to help pit crews denote which car on the team was entering the pits, with each car sporting a different number of stripes on the front quarters??), Corvette cove, raked back windshield in black surround, Caravaggio rear deck spoiler and near perfect black canvas convertible top, all bathed in Sebring Silver. All fiberglass is in excellent condition. Rear oval taillights have been slotted and a quartet of exhaust pipes peek out the center of the rear roll pan below. Lest we forget those black and chrome rimmed 17 and 18 inch respectively Z06 wheels on all 4 corners.
Sporty black leather buckets grab you with a sit inside. Black door panels with nearly every power control one could want border these buckets. Leather is in good condition with a few wrinkles, and areas of wear, but remaining nice. A heads up display, along with cruise control, a power memory seat, power telescoping steering wheel all wrapped up in a curved dash that presents very cleanly. Black carpet floods the floors and is in very nice condition. Ride control and active handling knobs are conveniently located just behind the shift lever.
A well manicured 345hp 5.7 Liter LS1 V8 is seen with a front flip of the hood. This has EFI, and a 4L60E 4-speed automatic transmission attached. The 2.73 rear axle configuration, and active handling package that can handle all the power this active mill can produce. Noted a cold air intake and a mass airflow system to help the engine pump out the horses.
Extreme clean sums it up underneath looking very close to showroom with a touch of patina from just plain old enjoying this fine sports car. C5 Corvette suspension all around as are 4 wheel power disc brakes. A stainless steel Borla exhaust system is noted.
A quick starter, and runner. This LS1 V8 can push this car very quickly up to speed, and due to the comfortable interior, even with the top down, it is hard to tell exactly how fast you are really traveling. Overall a good driving experience, and easy smooth automatic transmission shifting. All the power options are functional, and the stereo sounds fab!
One of only a few 1999 Corvettes currently in inventory, and this one is well cared for, played with and nicely put away in a temp controlled garage, well maintained, and is just a fun car to drive. Nothing like being low to the ground and taking a corner like it is not even there…Wild!
