1998 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe
One-Owner, 6-Speed C5
Garage Kept Motors is pleased to present this one-owner C5 for consideration. That's right, this 1998 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe has had just one owner since new. It has been one Michigan man's prized possession for the past 20 years, and due to no longer driving it as much as he should, he has decided to pass it on to a new home.
Our client purchased this Vette from Team Chevrolet of Westmont, IL in November of 1997. The car came from the factory in Black and powered by Chevy's 5.7L SFI V8 mated to a 6-Speed Manual gearbox. It was outfitted with the latest equipment of its time, such as Traction Control, ABS, Front and Rear Disc Brakes, Heated Side Mirrors, etc. but was also optioned with Dual Removable Roof Panels, Dual Zone AC, Six-Way Power Seats, Memory Package, and Leather Bucket Seats. All together, the window sticker price was $43,299, which was A LOT of car and money for 1998. Desiring some extra performance, our client had the car professionally built up with an upgraded exhaust, top end, intake, and BBK throttle body. These upgrades pushed the car to 350hp.
The car runs extremely well and the exhaust notes sound amazing (see video). It comes with a folder of records plus original window sticker and original purchase documents. You will be hard-pressed to find another C5 this clean with only one owner, especially for the price we are asking.
