2004 Chevrolet Corvette Z06
2004 Chevrolet Corvette ZO6
Compared to its predecessor, the C5 Corvette that hit dealers for 1997 featured a more rigid hydroformed box frame and transmission now mounted at the rear helping achieve 50/50 front-and-rear weight distribution. By 1999, Chevy offered the Vette as a convertible, targa top and fixed-roof coupe. Motivating base versions of the 1997 Corvette was a 5.7-liter V8 producing 345 horsepower that worked with either a six-speed manual or four-speed automatic transmissions. Power inched up slightly to 350 in 2001. On the tech front, an optional head-up display was made available as an option in 2000.
The last year for this hidden headlight design, this 04 'Vette C5 Z06 Commemorative Edition. This car has an LS1 V8, EFI, cast Z06 alloy wheels and a carbon fiber hood. All these editions as is the example were painted LeMans Blue and have a shale leather interior. This car brags about a mere 1,554 Actual Miles!
Aerodynamics and handling was the key to this generation, and it shows up in commemorative LeMans Blue and it retains a mirror-like finish. Neoprene bumpers form the low sleek front end and move upward through the hidden headlight covers and small bumped up fiberglass hood. This hood has silver stripes along with red edging running through it. On either side is the ubiquitous “Corvette Cove” beginning on the front quarter just aft of the wheel wells and continuing throughout the sleek doors with their Italian design rear view body matching mirrors. Black window surrounding trimmings go well with the blue, and a blue top has the continuation of the stripes as they head for the trunk deck. On the rear we're goin' oval with oval taillights and 4 oval centered exhaust tips. A shout out to the red brake calipers we can see through the alloy wheels.
Heavy usage of the french curve for this sculpted interior that ergonomically grabs you and wraps you in supple ebony colored leather. Buckets are high back and have plenty of support on the bolsters and offer power adjustment. More curvaceous curves for the molded console and dash with its glowing number and lettered gauges under the driver's curved dash top. It features a heads-up display. An AM/FM/CD Delco with digital readout and Bose speakers is noted as well as dual climate controls for each passenger. Black carpeting floods the floors and rear storage area and appears like now all around. Just perfectly preserved and all beautifully designed.
Under the hood in a very clean engine bay is the LS1 5.7 Liter power plant showing as a V8. It is fed by EFI and has a T56 6-speed manual transmission. On back to help spin the tires and get respectable gas mileage is a 3.42 limited slip rear axle.
All clean and lots o' cast aluminum parts for weight loss this car was built to handle. Hold your breath because the suspension is coming right up…Independent SLA forged aluminum upper and lower control arms and steering knuckle, transverse mono leaf springs, and a steel stabilizer bar and spindle offset for the front, and for the rear, independent 5 link design with toe and camber adjustment, cast aluminum upper and lower control arms and knuckle, transverse mono leaf springs, steel tie rods and stabilizer bar and tubular U-jointed metal matrix composite driveshaft…WHEW!! Also, of note 4-wheel power disc brakes can bring you to a screeching halt. These commemorative Z06 cars had their proto-types tested at the Nurembergring and as a result have revised damping for the Sachs gas pressure shocks, stiffer bushings for the upper control arms and rear anti roll bar.
Our car for this consignment fired right up and worked immediately to get to the test track. Here it handled like it was on rails, was very quiet on the road noise front, and gave us a comfortable ride with all working functions for the interior conveniences. These Z06 optioned warships have plenty of power along with great handling capabilities, hold tight!
An extra clean all working and smooth aero design, rail car with some beautiful LeMans Blue paint, and Shale interior in full leather. Ergonomically off the charts when it comes to comfort and driveability, and low mileage to boot. All showroom condition. Lovely Z06 way of commemorating something!
