The C5 Corvette was a massive step forward for the legendary fiberglass sports car, and if you haven't driven one, you don't know just how good they are. This 1999 Corvette has an awesome look with a few modest modifications, and probably represents the biggest bang for the buck anywhere. Finished in traditional Arctic White, this Corvette still looks awesome and looking at it, it's hard to believe that it's 17 years old. It has been driven, of course, but everything looks to be in top condition mechanically, and it shows only the most minor road wear, making it the perfect Corvette for the guy who loves the C5 but might be working on a smaller budget. The bodywork, including the optional stinger along the sides is beautifully preserved, and this one has been neatly upgraded with Z06-style scoops on the rocker panels, which were designed to feed cool air to the rear brakes, air screens up front, and some subtle graphics on the hood. There are almost zero scuffs on the chin, and no sandblasting of the rocker panels by the tires, and certainly no marks from parking lot mishaps thanks to the composite bodywork. This car also features the solid top option, which gives it the look of a closed coupe and the lid can be stored in the C5's cavernous trunk using special brackets for just this purpose. Go ahead, take another look at it, the C5 is aging rather well, don't you think? This car's interior features the optional sport bucket seats, which were a big upgrade over the standard pancake-flat buckets, and the leather remains in great shape. There's some slight wear on the driver's seat, certainly in line with the age and mileage, and overall the interior is as well-preserved as the bodywork. You'll never get tired of watching the gauges do their dance every time you start the engine (they've been upgraded with white gauge faces), and there's tons of useful data to be gleaned from the driver information center in the middle of the cluster. This car also offers options like dual zone climate control, the cool heads-up display, and the memory package, among others. Everything works as it should, as one would expect from such a well-preserved piece, and there are carbon-fiber accents on the doors and dash to dress things up a bit. The C5's LS1 V8 was another huge step forward. With 345 horsepower in 1999, it was a formidable performer, yet it could still pull down 25 MPG on the highway, something few other cars could match. The LS1 also introduced a plastic intake manifold to control heat and noise, distributorless ignition, and a sophisticated fuel system, all stashed under handsome removable covers with CORVETTE emblazoned on their surface. The standard transmission was a 4-speed automatic as in this one, which also has the optional 3.15 performance gear ratio. The engine runs very well and has a few minor modifications that are popular with Corvette enthusiasts but do nothing to affect reliability. For a little extra fun on the road, there's a rumbling B&B cat-back exhaust system and the suspension has been lowered two inches for that awesome stance. Chrome forged aluminum wheels from a Z06 wear staggered 245/45/17 front and 275/40/18 rear Hankook performance radials and frame a set of cross-drilled Z06 brakes. If you're looking for a clean C5 at a great price, they don't come better than this. Call today!
He C5 Corvette was a vast improvement over the C4 model and production numbers soared. This 1999 C5 fastback coupe is unlike any other that rolled off of the assembly line. The factory C5 Corvette was powered by a 5.7 Liter LS1 motor that produced 345 BHP @5600 RPM. This Corvette has received a substantial 'boost' in power Ă˘â‚¬â€ś a Magnuson 'Magna Charger' supercharger package. Magnuson has been producing supercharger upgrades for over 30 years. This system features an Eaton TVS Roots-style supercharger, exhaust modifications, cam/headwork and Magnuson proprietary intercooler technology. This Corvette is incredibly responsive and yet very drivable. The owner has provided a complete package of information pertaining to this Magnuson system. Horsepower is delivered through a 4-speed automatic 4L60E transaxle. On the outside, Sebring Silver paint is in original condition except for the hood and front bumper cover. Due to the addition of the supercharger, a raised hood was required. The finish of the new hood and the front bumper-cover show minor imperfections that could use some attention and the tinted targa-top also has some light scuffing. A factory grey leather interior has been well maintained and all gauges are working. The C5 includes virtually all convenience features as standard equipment including: climate control A/C, power seats and locks, keyless entry, power tint windows and trunk lock, tilt wheel and cruise control. This model is also equipped with the AM/FM/CD stereo system. Tires are Michelin low-profile mounted on Corvette Z-06 alloy wheels. As with all C5s, this car is equipped with power steering and 4-wheel ABS power disc brakes.

A 1999 Chevrolet Corvette convertible presented in a pristine triple-black and a six-speed manual. That's usually enough to motivate most of us, but the upgrade to 450 horsepower by the performance masters at Lingenfelter (a $19K package) is the reason why you need to act fast on this speedy Vette. This convertible gives a seriously mean first impression. The black has the kind of rolling shine across the bodywork that it looks like this C5 wants to slip through the night. When it looks this factory-fresh, it's a clear indication that the drop top only left the garage on sunny days and clear nights. Of course, when it comes to shine, a proper American classic deserves some chrome. So this one has the optional deluxe high polish five-spoke wheels. But the best feature of the fifth generation (C5) car is the distinctive low, long hood of the Corvette that gives it a classic appearance connecting it with previous generations. The all-black interior completes a terrific total package, because combined with the exterior and folding roof, this makes the ultra-desirable triple-black package. Just like the outside appearance, the inside has also been treated with amazing care that an exotic like this one deserves. This one had just about every option box checked, which means it has plenty of great modern features. It includes dual zone climate control, leather-wrapped steering wheel, dual airbags, Bose AM/FM/CD stereo, power windows, power locks, anti-theft system, and keyless entry. There's even the windshield heads up display (HUD). The leather bucket seats show nearly zero wear, and the driver even can power adjust it to the perfect driving position. Most family-sized convertibles don't even offer a real trunk, but this personal sportscar has more than enough storage space for a two-person roadtrip. You can go on a golf holiday with the clubs and the luggage neatly stowed out of the way even when the top is down. Now that's a recipe for a great driving weekend! The Corvette's LS1 V8 displaced 5.7-liters and made a nice 345 horsepower, which is more than enough to make some trouble. But that doesn't meant the fellas at Lingenfelter were satisfied. That's why they offer a complete rebuild of this motor in a fortified and blueprinted performance package that costs nearly $19,000. It starts with increasing the displacement to 6.3-liters. The rebuild includes CNC port & polished cylinder heads, forged aluminum pistons, three-angle valve job with new LPE springs & retainers, Lunati crankshaft & connecting rods, B&B stainless headers, and B&B tri-flow exhaust. There's plenty more to this build, but just know the strengthened V8 now makes 450 horsepower. Backed by the desirable six-speed manual transmission, you are in complete control of this upgraded motor and the seriously sweet symphony made by the exhaust. Plus, the optional performance suspension package, power steering, four-wheel disc brakes, and modern performance tires combine to make a lively dance partner on your favorite twisting road. Complete with the original window sticker, owner's manual, and the receipt/build details from Lingenfelter, this is a true beautiful C5 with a great pedigree. Rarely does a Corvette this special come up for sale. Call today!
