This C6 convertible is about as clean as one as you will find. Very low miles as it just turned 10,049 actual. Adult driven and well cared for. This C6 has a great history and was actually at the Volvo Auto Musuem in Illinois at one time. The previous owner lived in the Mountain Home Arkansas area where the car was shown and only driven on fair weather occasions. The color was optional for this year called Velocity Yellow Tintcoat and was a $750 extra cost option. This was a rare color as only 550 were made in a convertible. The car has had the entire front end, partial hood, and most of the lower rocker panels wrapped in the clear bra paint protection done right here locally in Springfield. This absolutely protects the paint from rock chips and road rash from driving. They even covered the headlights as well to prevent any nicks. This alone would cost you $2,000! The paint is excellent on this Corvette and has no nicks or rock chips that I am aware of. The glass is excellent with no stone nicks, the convertible top has been stored in the upright position when not driven and looks as new, and the interior is super nice with no flaws in the leather or upholstery. It’s just about as nice as a new one at a fraction of the original list price.
The lower front spoiler is also nice and not all scuffed up as you will find on most of these models. The wheels are factory chrome plated and still have that ultra nice shine with no chrome issues. Just a very clean C6 model that we seldom get in as many of these cars do not get sold as they are fun to drive and several still like the look of this model better than the new ones. The performance is awesome as this was the first year for the all new 6.2L LS3 V8 engine. This particular Corvette also has a nice Borla stainless steel exhaust system which was added for better sound, K&N Cold Air Intake, and a Diablo Tuner. These three items add to performance giving this C6 as much as 450 HP!
The exhaust system is polished stainless, giving it a nice look as well as the larger tips at the back. Very nice sounding Corvette.
Just in time for summer and included with this Corvette is the window sticker, build sheet, sales brochure, original manuals and demo cd, some previous service records, previous owner history and a clean Auto Check Vehicle History Report as well as a signed odometer statement by the previous owner. Clear title in hands with the mileage stated as actual on it.

KEY FACTS ABOUT THE 2008 MODEL CORVETTE:
The base engine for 2008 was the new LS3. It increased from 364 (6.0L)
To 376-ci (6.2L), and from 400 to 430 horsepower. Cylinder heads had Z06-style large-valve, large-port design with larger, straighter intake ports. Intake valves had hollow stems with nine-percent larger diameters. The camshaft had five-percent greater lift.
LS3’s beauty covers and composite intake manifolds had acoustically tuned sections to dampen and tune valve train noise.
Steering feel was improved by more precise component machining, a stiffer intermediate shaft, and revised controller calibrations.
The automatic had hardware and software changes for quicker manual paddle shifts. Also, a 2.73:1 performance axle ratio was optional with automatics.
A new split-spoke wheel was included with coupes and convertibles. The base wheel was painted Sparkle Silver (it debuted with the 2007 Indy Pace replica with a Sterling Silver finish).
A new remote fob concealed its key in a sliding compartment.
Interiors were revised with a new wrapped “cyber” graphic pattern console trim plate, bright surrounds for the cupholder and manual shifter, and brushed aluminum shifter and door release trim. Metal door sill plates were new (interim 2007). Floor mat retainers were simplified.
OnStar, XM radio, and auto-dimming rearview mirror with compass were standard. All radios except navigation had an MP3 audio jack.
2008 Corvette Paced the Indy 500 Once again and offered a special Pace Car replica model.
A 427-Limited Edition Z06 was offered and all 505 were signed by retired Bowling Green Corvette Plant Manager Wil Cooksey.
A total of 35,310 Corvettes were built in 2008. Of those numbers only 7,731 were convertibles and narrow that down to this yellow one, only 550 were produced.
