Offered For Sale is an extremely clean and well maintained 2001 C5 Corvette Convertible. This Corvette is finished in all black exterior and interior, with a black factory cloth canvas soft top. The C5 generation of the Corvette was a big success and a huge change from the previous model as the convertibles featured a trunk, last seen since 1962. The wheelbase was lengthened and the legroom in the interior was much larger thanks to the rear transaxle that was introduced in 1997. The fuel filler door was also on the side rear left fender like the early C1 Corvettes which was much easier to use. Practically every component was different on the C5 and the floorboard had balsa wood sandwiched between it to make the car quieter.The ride and handling was much improved and Active Handling with Traction Control was standard equipment in 2001.
The engine was the all aluminum 5.7L LS1 V8 producing 350 HP as the previous generation had a cast iron block and the base output was 300 HP. A nice improvement and this LS1 engine is used by many in custom projects and resto-mods.
This Corvette has only 17,009 actual miles and is documented back to new with owner history and receipts on routine service history over the years.
The exterior paint is excellent with no noticeable chips or nicks and the car was professionally detailed with a paint correction done to remove any swirl markings and minor scratches. The window glass is all like new as well as the cloth convertible soft top and all of the interior. This was a non-smoker vehicle and was just driven on nice weather days to local car shows and cruise-ins. All adult owners that started and drove the car on occasion to keep everything in proper working condition. Everything does work on this car and it needs nothing that I am aware of.
The tires were replaced back in August of 2020 at 11,561 miles due to the age of the originals that were on the car. The tires that were replaced are the correct ones just like those that came on the car new in the correct sizes and are the GoodYear Eagle F1 EMT run flat ones. This was a cost of $1,666.43.
In April of 2024 this Corvette had all of the fluids changed including the antifreeze coolant flushed, brake fluid flushed with the brake reservoir removed to be cleaned, hydraulic clutch fluid changed, power steering fluid changed, oil and filter changed, transmission fluid changed, rear differential fluid changed, and the fuel filter was also changed. The fluids that were used were GM ones just like what would have been installed back at the factory. This was a cost of $857.11
All of the original wheels have no deterioration and have no curb markings. The original wheel locks are still on the car. The battery was also replaced back in December of 2023.
This Corvette is clean underneath as well and is in better shape than 99% of the ones you will find for sale and the price reflects that.
The 6-Speed manual transmission is smooth and easy to drive. At 70 mph on the highway the RPMs are only 1500, easily getting 30 plus MPG. Very impressive for that time and even today in a sports car.

This Corvette was originally built on May 15th 2001 according to the original build sheet.

Included with this Corvette is the window sticker, build sheet, sales brochure, owner history, odometer statements, service receipts, a clean CarFax Vehicle History Report, both sets of keys and keys fobs labeled 1 and 2 for the memory option package, the original owner manual in the leather binder, and numerous other information pertaining to this Corvette over the years.
This Corvette is mostly all original and unmodified with the exception of the added chrome roll bars that mount behind the seats for looks only and are not functional. These also have built-in LED lights for the turn signals and brake lights. These can be removed if desired. The only other accessory is the louvered black license plate frame that looks nice and is easily removable. I do have the original one that came with the car and the original front frame that in some states are required to have a front license plate frame.
This Corvette does not disappoint and is ready for show or go!
