800 Derita Road, Ste. A
We get excited about collector-grade Corvettes here at Streetside, because we know the Corvette community is one of the best at understanding how special they are. For example, this low-mileage, never titled, 2003 Chevrolet Corvette 50th Anniversary Special Edition convertible is highly original and highly optioned. So we know that this will get a lot of attention from the right people.
Chevy does a good job of celebrating the milestones correctly, and the paint is a great example here. The Anniversary Red Metallic is a specially brewed burgundy that looks like candy, and dares you to touch its impossibly smooth surface. Of course, since this drop-top has averaged less than 450 miles annually, you won't be surprised at this special paint's exceptional condition. It has a luster in the sunlight that will fill you with pride of ownership, and that's always a great thing in a sunshine-friendly convertible. And when the sunshine finds those polished alloys, this whole package has the kind of radiance that most people think you can only get from a custom car. But this collectable is all factory, and Chevrolet really lets the shine do most of the talking for the car. That's why they didn't need to go overboard with badging - just a tasteful commemorative emblem on each fender and a special badge up front.
These special edition cars received the Shale folding top, and beneath it is a Shale leather interior. So you get a great color combo no matter how you motor. As you would expect from such a low mileage convertible, it all has an exceptional presentation (even factory tag is still on the radio.) Just like the exterior, this goes for subtle elegance in commemorating the golden anniversary with special embroidery in the power-adjusting leather seats. And as a special car, it also came from the factory loaded with features like power windows, power locks, keyless entry, dual-zone climate control, cruise control, power mirrors, and a premium Bose AM/FM/CD stereo. Most family-sized convertibles don't even offer a real trunk, but this personal sports car has more than enough storage space for a two-person road trip. This modern classic also comes with modern safety features such as dual front airbags and anti-lock brakes. And the head-up display (HUD) is both for safety and a true performance piece.
Under the hood is the original aluminum LS1, and it looks as fresh as day one on this well-respected anniversary convertible. This fuel-injected V8 has 350 hp and plenty of torque on tap, so it easily fulfills the Corvette's performance image. Best of all, you can dial in how mild or wild you want your ride with the magnetic selective ride control - a technological advance that even Ferrari eventually used. It also comes with great driver features like a four-speed automatic transmission w/overdrive, power steering, four-wheel disc brakes. So while this is a collector-grade car, it also will be tough to resist adding a few more miles to the odometer.
Corvette people know the value of having a special edition in such a well-preserved and stock condition. The sale even comes with the special 50th anniversary instruction CD and other paperwork. This is a collector Corvette that future generations will continue to appreciate. Call now and become the first, registered, owner!
