LS1 5.7 Liter V8
50th Anniversary Shale
50th Anniversary Red
Corvettes are celebrated for their heritage in every model year because there are differences in these low-batch speed machines. So when Chevrolet takes note of a big milestone, a car like this 2003 Chevrolet Corvette 50th Anniversary was a collectable from the moment it left Bowling Green. That\'s why it\'s terrific to find a well-priced and loaded example that upholds the respect and documentation you want from a truly special coupe.
Anniversary Red Metallic is the kind of color that was specially made just for this car. It mixes the red-blooded love for America\'s sports car, and it gives it a deeper tone out of respect for reaching the half-century mark. And for Corvette people, they can recognize this special hue from across a show field. That\'s why it\'s terrific to have one looking this good today. A car that has averaged less then 3k miles annually is the one that has been on the roads far less than those everyday commuters, and so the sunlight loves to unleash the metallic element on this example. And the good luster really lets the sunlight roll across the body. So you can see everything from the wind-formed profile to the little details, like the subtle crease in the hood\'s power bulge. Because the paint does a great job of announcing this is a special car, Chevy realized that there doesn\'t need to be any more of a boastful announcement. So they wisely made the badging for the 50th anniversary refined with exclusive pieces for the front and fenders. And the champagne-colored alloy wheels are like giving a toast to celebrate the milestone moment.
Another part of this tastefully done celebration package is the Shale interior. And the way everything is clean and correct, right down to the leather on the driver\'s seat, is another indication of responsible ownership. Just like the exterior, this goes for subtle elegance in commemorating the golden anniversary with special embroidery in the sport seats. This came from the factory loaded with features like power seats, power windows, power locks, keyless entry, cruise control, a head-up display (HUD), power telescoping wheel, and an AM/FM/CD stereo with Bose speakers that still plays your music loud and clear even if your running at high speeds with the targa top out. In fact, you can enjoy motoring with the glass roof panel stowed behind the seats just about any time of year thanks to the dual-zone automatic A/C climate control.
The engine bay looks just as clean and correct as the rest of the car. This 5.7-liter fuel-injected LS1 V8 was part of a new era in Corvette performance, and so it really is the right powerhouse to have to celebrate the 50th anniversary. With 350 horsepower, performance is a guarantee. But you may also be surprised at how everyday friendly this car is. That\'s also in part to do with the four-speed automatic transmission that\'s quick for performance kick-downs and slips into overdrive comfort with ease. Another great feature that was part of the special edition package was magnetic selective ride control - a technological advance that even Ferrari eventually used. Add in power steering, four-wheel disc brakes, and Goodyear eagle F1 tires, and this is the collectable car that was also made for driving.
The sale comes complete with the original window sticker and owner\'s manual. This is an affordable and desirable collector Corvette that future generations will continue to appreciate. Call today!!!
