2001 Corvette Convertible with only 28,220 actual miles. Magnetic Red Metallic
With Black Interior and Softop. Nicely equipped with th automatic transmission
And the desirable G92 performance axle ratio option. Clean well cared for C5 Corvette!
Another nice example of a 2001 C5 Corvette Convertible. This is one of the more popular generations and they do not last long at our dealership. This one only has 28,220 actual miles and comes with some nice documentation. We purchased this vehicle from a man in Kansas that had bought it several years ago for his wife and she had now decided for another vehicle and let someone else enjoy this one. The Corvette has been garaged and cared for. The tires have been replaced just a few years back due to age of the vehicle and the correct Goodyear EMT Run Flat tires were put back onto the car just like it came from when original. Those tires alone are over $400 each! The overall condition of this C5 is very nice with the exception of a few chips on the front nose which is to be expected. The glass is all good and the convertible top is excellent. The original polished wheels are not curbed or have any rash markings. The vehicle is all stock and just like it came new back in 2001. The interior is also very clean and shows little to no wear. Everything works on the vehicle and we have changed the oil and filter right when it came into our facility. The chassis and engine compartment is overall real clean for the age of the vehicle. I would not be afraid to get in this Corvette and drive anywhere. The tires are balanced out smoothly and with the optional performance axle ratio the car is very quick and fun to drive. Plenty of performance with the LS1 fuel injected engine that produces 350 HP. The fuel economy of these models of Corvettes will surprise you as this one can easily get close to 30 mpg on the highway! For the first time since 1962, separate trunk with outside access returned in 1998 for the C5 convertible. It was a standard feature of the convertible body style. The convertible’s storage space was just slightly more than half of the coupes (13.9 cubic feet compared to 24.8), but it was larger than virtually all competing soft top two-seaters at that time and twice that of the previous Corvette generation’s convertible. Even with the top folded down, storage space was 11.1 cubic feet, adequate for two golf bags.
Lowering the convertible’s softop required release of two front latches, then pushing a button for release of a hard tonneau. If side windows were up, pushing the button also lowered them. The tonneau pivoted up and back, and the top folded manually into its storage bay. Raising the top was a reversal of these steps. Articulated geometry of the bows eliminated rear latches. The rear window was glass and heated.
Active Handling System was standard for this model year as previous years was an additional $500 option. This provided additional control in slippery conditions or in extreme handling situations. It countered oversteer or understeer by selectively applying individual wheel brakes. Throttle was not affected.
