Black w/Black interior, 350/345hp. 6-spd. manual transaxle.
Starting in ’99 and for the first time in Corvette’s history, three distinct models were offered in the lineup. The Coupe, Convertible & Hardtop. The FRC or Fixed Roof Coupe, as it was then known was originally intended to be the “budget” Corvette with standard equipment including manual transaxle,smaller wheels and tires roll-up crank windows, base a-c, base cloth seat, etc. But, by the time the FRC made it’s debut, some of the cost-saving equipment was cancelled due to very high demand for the C5 in general. But, what it did have, due to its non-removable roof was a lighter, more ridged platform. It was plenty quick and handled like a champ! That, along with the manual 6-spd. trans, made it a very popular weekend club racer! So popular that Chevrolet decided to up the ante in ’01 with the introduction of the ZO6, which used the FRC as it’s base. Adding an LS6 385hp V8 in the process for even more performance! Only 4031 FRC’S were produced in ’99 with only half of that at 2090 in ’00, making it a rare and desirable Corvette!
The low miles, local So. CA. example presented here is in excellent shape throughout with only 32k miles on the odometer. It’s been upgraded with polished ’01-’04 style Corvette 5-spoke wheels and a sharp Silver hood and deck stripe to add a bit more distinction. You just don’t see these FRC’s very much on the road, as there weren’t very many of them made. But when you do find one, the owner is rewarded with one of the best driving experiences Corvette ever offered!
