It’s widely believed that with the introduction of the fifth generation Corvette in ’97, “America’s Sports Car” firmly entered “World Class” status. The car was completely new and featured many innovations, such as a Hydro-Formed frame, which required far less welds and was structurally stronger. This was also the first production Corvette to feature a rear-mounted transaxle for better weight distribution, as well as more interior room. The engine was an all-new aluminum LS1 small block and was 44lbs light than it’s LT1 predecessor. The car was a home run for Chevrolet and continues to be one of the most popular generations built!
This “show condition” ’01 came to us from a local So. CA. owner who took meticulous care of it. It’s got only 45k babied miles on the odometer and it’s loaded with options, including 1SC Preferred Equipment Group, rare Magnesium wheels, performance exhaust system, 12 disc CD changer and both painted and transparent roof panels. All books, manuals, spare keys and extensive service history are included.
