I don’t think there’s a better buy in the sports car market than a C6 Corvette.  This great looking car is the perfect combination of performance and practicality, without the ridiculous maintenance requirements or $500 oil changes of some comparable models.  This one-owner 2005 convertible makes a strong case with its low miles, clean history, great documentation, and desirable 1SB and Z51 packages. 

This Corvette was purchased new from Ernie Von Schledorn Chevrolet and remained with its original owners ever since.  As a summer / weekend car it saw limited use and shows 43k miles today (about 2,400 miles per year).  The car remains completely stock and comes with a binder of documentation since new including the original window sticker, purchase contract, order information, delivery documents, and maintenance records.  It has a sharp look with its Machine Silver paint, black convertible top, and polished aluminum wheels.  The Autocheck shows a spotless history with nothing but registrations and emissions testing.

This car has plenty of curb appeal, but there's more to a Corvette than just looking good.  The business end comes in the form of the aluminum 6.0L LS2 motor which delivers 400HP and 400 ft-lbs of torque.  This is linked to a 4L65E automatic transmission and G90 performance rear axle.  While this offers plenty of zip, the car is upgraded further with the Z51 performance package which includes better springs, shocks, and stabilizer bars.  You also get larger cross-drilled brake rotors along with coolers for the engine oil, transmission fluid, and power steering fluid.

The red leather interior really makes this car stand out, especially with the top down.  All the usual Corvette goodies are present including dual 6-way power seats, dual zone climate control, active handling, traction control, and a tilt / telescoping steering column.  Further, as a 1SB car this one also has a touch screen radio / satellite / CD / navigation unit, Bose premium sound, head-up display (HUD), and heated seats.  It comes with both factory keyfobs (#1 and #2).

This is a great chance to buy a low-mileage C6 convertible for about 1/4 the price of a new C8.  Note we are not talking about some abused racer that bounced between owners and has sketchy modifications; there are no questions with this one.   It brings the look and performance of a much more expensive exotic but without all the maintenance headaches, all while delivering almost 30 mpg on the highway.  Can any car pull this off like a Corvette?
