2003 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible 50th Anniversary Edition 350HP 5.7L LS1 Automatic Transmission 50th Anniversary Red Exterior Two-Tone Shale Interior Very Clean & Loaded Head Up Display Driver Memory Option Magnetic Ride Control 12-Disc CD Changer Stock Number: 18-12 Mileage: 26,776 When the Corvette team set out to commemorate 50 years of heritage in 2003, what they created was arguably the most popular Anniversary Corvette ever. In accordance with previous Anniversary Corvette themes, the Corvette design team has integrated colors of traditional wedding anniversary gifts into the 2003 50th Edition; Gold wheels and a unique gold-flake in the paint pair up to compliment the Corvette coming into its golden years. All 50th A/E Corvettes came from the factory with the step-up 1SC option package as well as the following suspension, style and badge cues for the Coupes and Convertibles: • Anniversary Red paint (formally known as Crystal Xirallic); a lustrous burgundy with aluminum-oxide flakes floating under a special tinted clear-coat. • A special Shale colored interior trim, • Anniversary badges on the front fenders, • 50th embroidery on the seats, • 50th nomenclature in the dash, • Tan colored soft top (convertible), • Magnetic Selective Ride Control (F55) Mechanically, the A/E Corvettes remained unchanged, with the notable exception of Chevrolets introduction of the Magnetic Selective Ride Control (F55). This system featured a novel variable-damper-rate technology that started a revolution in adjustable shock technology. Replacing the previous “variable orifice and oil” setup was a new Magneto-Rheological (MR) fluid; a synthetic oil with millions of tiny iron balls suspended in it. These iron balls have a proprietary coating to make them less abrasive and help them float evenly within the shock fluid. More important, they react to a magnetic field generated by an electric coil on the shock piston, thereby changing the fluid's viscosity almost instantaneously, and correspondingly, the shock travel and ride quality. This Award Winning technology has since been adopted by many of Corvettes competitors (i.e. Ferrari) and has raised the bar in variable suspension systems across the board. The F55 suspension package was a standard feature for all 2003 Anniversary Edition Corvettes, and optional on all others, including the current model available today. After a decade and a half in use, Chevrolet has broadened its development of the MR shock into their performance suspension systems, arriving as standard equipment in the new 2019 ZR1, and then optional on all other C7 models. -- INSTALLED FEATURES: Front air conditioning, Front air conditioning zones: dual, Front airbags: dual, Antenna type: power, In-Dash CD: single disc, Premium brand: Bose, Radio: AM/FM, ABS: 4-wheel, Power brakes, Shift knob trim: leather, Steering wheel trim: leather, Center console, Cruise control, Multi-function remote: keyless entry, Power steering, Steering wheel: tilt, Limited slip differential: rear, Clock, Gauge: tachometer, Trip computer, Daytime running lights, Exterior entry lights, Front fog lights, Side mirror adjustments: power, Side mirrors: heated, Driver seat power adjustments, Front seat type: bucket, Passenger seat power adjustments, Upholstery: leather, Anti-theft system: alarm, Power door locks, Stability control, Traction control, Run flat tires, Wheel diameter: 18 inch, Wheels: alloy, Front wipers: intermittent, Power windows, Window defogger: rear

Edmunds' Expert Review

We expected a little more for a 50th anniversary model, but considering how good the Corvette is anyway, we can forgive the paint and badges job -- barely.

2003 Z06
lmartin5, 10/2/2013
Bought the car as a mixed use track and street car 2.5 years ago. Not sure if it is possible to get more speed per dollar while driving something that is totally OEM. Overall it is a highly capable track car wrapped in a package that is still fun to cruise around in on the street. Generally reliable with a few issues. Needed a new starter and had to re-flow the solder in the ABS module. If you don't mind the high cost of operation (brakes, gas, big tires) it is both rewarding to drive and tons of fun. Stock cooling and brakes are just barely enough for short sprints, extended track use will require work in those areas. The OEM seats are really dubious and fall back on the track.
For the money can't do any better!

This is my second Corvette and the Z06 compared to my 2000 Coupe is in a totally different league. The Coupe was a blast and I enjoyed it to no end. It is rare living in a major city and looking forward to drive 4 wheels, but the Vettes will do that for you. My Z06 is somewhat a garage queen, but it is hard to stay away from her. This car is such a blast to drive and own I have a hard time deciding whether my Victory Kingpin or the Z06 is going to get my time. C5 Z06s can be had for as little as 19K or as high as 30K, depending upon mileage and condition. I paid 27K for mine, 8 months ago with 20K miles, GT1 wheels (4K), Corsa CatBack exhaust, and Vararam CAI, in flawless condition.

awsome car must buy!!
Exceeded all expectations
chris p, 10/9/2002
Having never owned a corvette before, I expected all of the stereotypes to be true, such as a cramped interior, lousy build quality and so forth. None of these having proven to be true. The performance is truly exceptional, it is easy to drive long distances, and nothing has broken or begun to rattle, even with trips to the drag strip and a few road courses. In fact, I frequently choose this over my mercedes sl to drive to work, which surprised even me.
