2003 Chevrolet Corvette 50th Anniversary
The 2003 model Corvette marked one of the brand's biggest and most historic milestones...the 50th Anniversary of the first Corvette produced in 1953. There was a specific 50th Anniversary color scheme, (not black), but all colors were specially marked for the milestone year.
For consignment, a 2003 version of America's sports car. This example has low actual miles, 10,462, and has a nice set of options attached. A 2-owner car from the start to now, well cared for like a favorite toy after playing, and put away neatly for the next time!
Nicely worked fenders, sides and top panels work together to form this model, which does some harkening back to 50 years ago in its design. Mainly with the “Corvette Cove” in the front quarter eventually moving to the rear and dying into the doors. All this sculpted aero slip stream design fiberglass is bathed in Anniversary Red. Hidden headlights, a swept back windscreen and a Shale canvas convertible top keep the look flowing just right. Just below the curved rear glass and trunk deck, the round taillights have gone oval, and the quad of shiny exhaust exits in the center of the rear roll pan. 17 inch 5 spoke warm nickel painted aluminum wheels and badging denoting the 50-year run for this America's sports car.
Plenty of wow factor and an interior to brighten your Anniversary Red exterior day, we see beautifully curved door panels with plenty of molded Shale gray colored plastic and some black panels surrounding the power button features on the doors. Moving inside, 50th Anniversary leather seat coverings in Shale vented leather inserts and smooth leather exterior bolsters surrounding the inserts await your presence and look forward to having your person pushed back into them when pressing the accelerator! On their headrests a 50 with crossed flags is embroidered within. Molded shale vinyl covers the hump, and seamlessly melts upward into the dash. Here we see a heads-up display, headlight sentinel, telescoping steering column, and a remote 12 CD changer at your beck and call. Shale gray carpeting, nice and clean, is flooding the floors. In back of the buckets another harken back to the 60's this time, with the dual eyebrow curved fiberglass tonneau covering with a vertical covered fiberglass storage lid between the seats. Groovy.
A lift of the feather light hood, and we see a 5.7 liter LS1 V8 mill with EFI. On back a T56 6-speed manual transmission is seen, along with 3.42 gears for the limited slip axle. This car offers magnetic ride control and is shown with an original factory exhaust for the exhale.
As expected the undercarriage of this car is solid as a rock. Plenty of cast aluminum suspension parts, stainless steel exhaust and solid aluminum floor pans as well as nary a drip or road dirt splatter seen. Suspension is ALS, (short long arm), double wishbone cast aluminum upper and lower control arms, transverse mounted composite spring and a mono-tube shock absorber. Power disc brakes are on all 4 corners. A marvel of engineering and ground effects usage. Power disc brakes for the woah! factor.
A quick starter, wonderful accelerator, excellent handling, and quick braking as well as all functions working as they should be which leads to a fun ride. I took extra laps just to be sure all was OK!…and it was. And the top was of course in the down position. One of the perks of the job.
A 2003 version with the added Anniversary trim along with all the other factory added on goodies, and this is all buttoned up to go fast, and carve curvy back roads kinda car. Hop in this low miles machine and make it yours, just see it in our main showroom before it goes away. Corvettes are HOT right now so you better not hesitate, if you snooze you may lose. What a way to celebrate 50 years!
