1999 Model Year Corvette
Everyone wants a Corvette at some point in their life, which explains why there are so many from all generations, not only surviving, but thriving, and enthusiastically changing hands whenever they come on the market. This 1999 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible is ideal for fifth generation ‘Vette lovers, as it’s got a low 34,600 miles on the odometer, and has reportedly seen a whole lot of refreshment and enhancement done to it. Let’s see what we’ve got here.
The fifth generation, or C5 Corvette marked a ground-up redesign for America’s favorite sports car. This 1999 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible showcases the refreshed design with the oh-so-desirable pop-up headlamps in a smooth Arctic White paint shade that the seller claims is 1 of only 2,756 Arctic White examples. Wheels are a set of shiny chrome five spoke units that wear reportedly new tires, and being a convertible, a nice tan cloth top keeps you protected from the elements. The taillights appear to have a body colored garnish on them as well. An interior in Saddle color is an ideal complement to a white exterior, and looks great, especially with the top down. Corvettes are strictly affairs for a maximum of two, and this ‘Vette offers electrically adjustable leather seats, dual zone climate control, a heads up display and the expected powered conveniences. The in-car entertainment department has been significantly upgraded from the factory offering, as the car sports a Jensen flip screen radio with Bluetooth, CD, and DVD playback as well as good ol’ radio, plus HD radio. The factory Bose speaker system appears to remain, but pop the trunk and you’ll find an Alpine amplifier and Kicker subwoofer installed there. The seller reports an updated Bluetooth connector as well.
There’s nothing like a good ol’ American V8, and Corvettes have been blessed with these for eons. Beneath the flowing hood of this 1999 Chevrolet Corvette lies an LS1 V8 that displaces a healthy 5.7L and puts out 345hp to the rear wheels via a six speed automatic transmission. The C5 is the first to introduce the drive by wire throttle, and variable power steering. This 1999 Chevrolet Corvette also reports a new battery, new harmonic balancer, Corsa exhaust, new brakes with ceramic rotors, rear end gaskets, sway bar link set, and new shocks.
