The paint and interior are in driver quality shape and look good overall. The blower motor is making noise, but everything else seems to be in good working order. The C5 was a major change from the previous generation. Designed from the outset as a sturdy convertible, as opposed to a coup that was subsequently weakened by the removal of the roof structure, the car now had a hydro-formed box frame. The transmission was moved to the rear of the car to form an integrated, rear-mounted transaxle assembly which was connected to the all-new LS1 engine via a torque tube; this engine/transmission arrangement helped facilitate a desirable 50-50 (percentage, front-rear) weight distribution for the vehicle. The LS1 engine initially produced 345 hp , but that was increased slightly in 2001 to 350 hp . The 4L60-E automatic transmission carried on from previous models, but the manual was replaced by a Borg-Warner T-56 6-speed that is capable of propelling the C5 to a top speed of 175 mph. Gone were the squeaks and rattles of the C4, replaced by a stronger frame that would last for at least two more generations. This 2000 Chevrolet Corvette can be seen at www.gatewayclassiccars.com, and is located in our Chicagoland Showroom, which can be reached at 708 444 4488.
