1952 COMMERCIAL DRIVE
Fort Myers, FL 33901
Up for sale is a low low miles 2003 Chevrolet Corvette C5 Convertible. The C5 is competitive in regards to 0–60 mph acceleration times with almost all premium sports cars of its era, including the Aston Martin DB7 Vantage, and the Ferrari 355. A composite of published performance numbers for the base-model coupé and convertible gives a 0–60 mph time of around 4.5 seconds, and a standing quarter-mile time of around 13.3 seconds at 108 mph (both times for a vehicle equipped with the 6-speed manual transmission). The C5's modular body panels use a lightweight composite material known in the automotive industry as SMC or Sheet Molded Composite, a type of fiberglass that is blended and bonded with plastics. SMC provides better protection against direct blows because it is very stiff and will not dent. The floor boards on the C5 are a composite consisting of SMC with balsa wood in the middle. Balsa wood was chosen for its stiffness, light weight, and sound absorption qualities. The all aluminium LS1 overhead valve engine is much lighter than its bi-metal (cast iron block, aluminum heads) predecessor, the LT1, and provides for a much lower hoodline when compared to an overhead cam design of relative displacement. The composite leaf springs are much lighter and sit much lower than typical coil springs and help provide the C5 with its smooth ride characteristics and low ride height. Ending production on July 2, 2004, the C5 became both the last generation of Corvette, and alongside Lotus Esprit (the last Esprit rolled off the production line on February 20, 2004), the last car overall to use pop-up headlamps. THIS VETTE IS BEAUTIFUL INSIDE AND OUT. THE C5 IS ACCIDENT AND RUST FREE. IT COMES IN ONE OF ITS MOST RARE SOUGHT AFTER COLOR COMBINATIONS GRAY WITH GRAY INTERIOR. IT IS TRULY A BEAUTIFUL AND SUPER ELEGANT CAR! THE PAINT LOOKS FLAWLESS AND DEEP RICH AND SHINY. THE CAR IS VERY STRAIGHT WITH NO DINGS, DENTS OR DAMAGE. THE SOFTTOP IS IN EXCELLENT CONDITION AS YOU CAN SEE IN THE PICTURES. THE SEATS ARE ORIGINAL AND IN GOOD SHAPE. THE WHEELS LOOK LIKE GORGEOUS AND THE TIRES HAVE A LOT OF THREAD LEFT. WE ARE ACTUAL SERVICING THE CAR THROUGHOUT AND IT NEEDS NOTHING BUT A NEW OWNER! THE CORVETTE HAS NOW NO KNOWN MECHANICAL ISSUES AT ALL! EVERYTHING WORKS AS IT SHOULD. THE A/C BLOWS ICE COLD AND THE STEERING IS VERY TIGHT. THE C5 DRIVES AND SHIFTS VERY SMOOTH LIKE YOU WOULD EXPECT FROM A VERY LOW MILEAGE CORVETTE. THIS IS A VERY NICE AND LOW MILEAGE EXAMPLE OF A CORVETTE IN THE 50Th ANIVERSARY YEAR, DON'T LET THIS ONE SLIP AWAY. THE CAR HAS ONLY BEEN GENTLY USED AVERAGING LESS THE 1,000 MILES A YEAR. WE TOOK A LOT OF PICTURES SO YOU CAN JUDGE FOR YOURSELF. THE CAR IS CURRENTLY DRIVEN FOR TEST DRIVES, SO THE MILEAGE AT THE DATE OF SALE MIGHT BE SLIGHTLY HIGHER.
