When the Corvette's fiftieth birthday rolled around in 2003, the C5, or fifth generation was going strong, albeit soon to be replaced by the C6 one year later. Chevrolet responded with a special 50th Anniversary Edition Corvette, of which this 2003 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible 50th Anniversary Edition is a proud member. The 50th Anniversary Edition came with a special color scheme, and every conceivable option was standard fitment. Why not buy this 26,297-mile example and celebrate an iconic legacy? As an additional sweetener, let us tell you that this car has received a few tasty go-faster upgrades too.
The lustrous paint hue on this 2003 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible 50th Anniversary Edition is known as Anniversary Red Metallic and came on all 50th Anniversary Edition examples. We can't go any further without mentioning the glorious pop-up headlamps that would also disappear forever when the C5 bowed out. Sporting a tan convertible top that's power operated, this beauty rolls on a set of shiny five-spoke alloy wheels wrapped in Michelin Pilot 4S performance tires. There's also a clear Lexon wind diverter to keep cabin wind noise down when driving with the top down, as well as ensure that your perfectly-coiffed hairdo stays mostly intact. Inside, the shale-colored two-seat cabin has every single option as standard. These include the heads-up display, dual-zone climate control, Bose speaker system, Delco Theftlock radio with CD player, power windows, power mirrors, power windows, and a trip computer. There are also controls for the Magnetic Ride Control system and Active Handling system in the center console.
This 2003 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible 50th Anniversary Edition packs a 5.7L LS1 V8 with 350hp, driving the rear wheels via a 6-speed manual transmission.

Additionally, we're also told about the presence of electronic exhaust cutouts and a Skipshift chip. When new, this 'Vette could do zero to sixty in under five seconds and top out over 170mph.
