2004 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe
2004 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe
In 1951 a group of Harley Earl's "Special Projects" crew began work on a GM sports car. Bob McLean designed a general layout for the car which was originally code named, "Opel". William Durant, the founder of GM, said a wallpaper pattern he saw in a Paris hotel in 1908 inspired the bow tie logo. Supposedly, he ripped off a small piece of it and brought it back to Detroit. Myron Scott, at the time, Chevrolet's Chief photographer, is credited with coming up with the Corvette name, drawing from the small, fast warships of the "Corvette" class.
For consignment, a 2004 Chevrolet Corvette coupe that has a nifty paint color, (Machine Silver Metallic), 30,523 low low original miles, plus all the bells and whistles one could ask for thanks in part to the Preferred Equipment Package that was optioned when this car was new. The last year of the C5 Corvette and the only one of the many Corvettes we have in our vast inventory here at the Classic Auto Mall
Machine Silver Metallic drapes the exterior of this car and presents in like showroom condition. Very snazzy, very metallic, and super sparkly in the fall sunlight. With a virtual lack of any chrome save for the 4 highly polished wheels, and the cross flag on the nose, the Machine Silver quickly takes over as star of the show, at least on the exterior. All gaps are well minded and it's hard to find any flaws in the fiberglass/composite body. 17 and 18 inch wheels sit on all four corners and are wrapped in 245/45/ZR17 and 275/40ZR18 like new rubber. Seen is a transparent removable top for some open-air motoring, so one can enjoy the exhaust notes along with the warming fall sunshine.
Black leather, power adjustable, high back buckets embroidered with the “Corvette” name await you. Sliding in will put you into a cockpit with an AM/FM/12 disc CD player, dual zone electronic heat and A/C, cruise control, power locks and power windows. A bevy of gauges are in front of the leather wrapped steering wheel and monitor all engine functions. A head up display is optioned on this car and keeps your eyes looking dead ahead when you get heavy with your right foot. The odometer shows there are 30,523 original miles on this Corvette.
The standard 5.7L LS1 fuel injected 350hp V8 is nestled under the forward tipping hood. We note A/C, power steering and power brakes in this ultra clean engine bay. A T56 6-speed manual transmission sends power to a 3.42 limited slip geared rear axle and then to the tires.
Very clean, nothing but black painted steel and stainless steel. Very sound with no rust or surface rust. Active handling, traction control, and 4-wheel disc brakes with ABS are noted. Independent SLA suspension with a transverse monoleaf spring provides the ride for front and rear. Factory dual exhaust is present and exits with 4 chrome ringed tips under the center of the rear bumper.
She fired right up and off to the test track we went. Here the car provided great handling, good cruising and everything control wise works swimmingly. We were lucky enough to have a bit of a fall heat wave going on in Pennsylvania for this test drive, so we sucked up the opportunity and took the removable top out to really enjoy our experience. Our consignor informed us that on cold starts during the cool months the "Service Active Handling" alert will illuminate until the car is warmed up, shut down and restarted. A dealership has checked this nuance and found nothing wrong with the sensors.
Overall a very nice example of a 17 year old 'Vette, that has been well cared for. An eye-catching paint color really makes this car pop along with its many options and its 350hp to get you motoring down the road. Snazzy upgraded polished wheels really set this car off and a recent cooling system service and flush was completed. What more can the suburban cruiser ask for?
