This 1998 Chevrolet Corvette Indianapolis 500 Pace Car is #345 of 1163. That means it's a rare machine that was built to be special from day one. That's why this one has been treated with respect over its low-mileage lifetime. Of course, we'd never blame you for enjoying this bold fuel-injected convertible to its fullest.

If you want to be subtle, look elsewhere. Chevrolet understands that the pace cars are instant classics. So since they knew these were purchased by collectors that would show them off, they made sure these would stand out in any crowd. That's why the special color is called Radar Purple, because this vivid hue will instantly get on everyone's radar! So when you're looking at an example that has averaged less than 2,300 annually, it tells you this one retains its excellent shine because it came out of the garage for little more than parade routes. And what really sets these pace cars apart is the full graphics package. With the yellow faded to white and plenty of red piping, this has the same appeal of a full custom blazing fire package on a hot rod.... Only Chevy's stylists used a waving flag instead of flame tips. And if that didn't already look hot enough, where else are you going to get bright yellow alloys directly from the factory?

Black is the kind of color that goes nicely with all the bold colors of the exterior. So we're not only glad to see it on the convertible top, but also it makes for a nice base on the inside, too. Of course, the yellow really steals the show again with the bold color inserts on the leather bucket seats. Even the exterior purple returns as a waterfall of color on the hard tonneau. The result is a car that looks custom, but with a factory-level build quality. So while the glances you'll get are awesome, the level of practicality on this collectable is awesome, too. You get all the best luxury features, like power seats, power windows, power locks, dual airbags, keyless entry/alarm, and an AM/FM/CD stereo system by Bose. Plus, with dual zone climate control and heated seats, you and your passenger get to individually dial-in your level of comfort, even when the top is down.

The engine bay has even been upgraded to be a part of this pace car's unique color theme. And because they gave it more bold yellow that's ready to show off, they also made sure it was completely show-ready with good maintenance and an overall tidy setup. And while this is a low-mileage looker, we know you won't be able to resist adding to the odometer. The 5.7-liter LS1 fuel-injected V8 is the perfect powerplant for a grand touring classic like this. It has a huge well of power that feels nearly endless during performance driving, and then it instantly settles into easy cruising. In fact, the four-speed automatic transmission is the perfect pairing. After all, it has quick downshifts when you poke the accelerator, and it also has highway-friendly overdrive. There's also power steering, four-wheel power disc brakes, cruise control, and a fully independent sports suspension.

The sale come complete with the maintenance records. This is the Corvette that's great for showing, driving, and collecting. So if you want it all, and all for an affordable price, call today!
