This 1962 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible can be seen as the final model of a first-generation car. With an upgraded engine for 260 horsepower, it boasted a number of changes to improve its performance with adjustments in springs, shocks, and steering geometry. Only minimal cosmetic updates were made, however–bright trim around the body was replaced by solid black lines so customers could only have one color on their car now. New decorative touches like simulated vents or Ribbed Rocker Panel Moldings would keep them looking fresh and new. This car has never been touched by anything but loving care; it comes equipped with a 327 CI V-8, Powerglide 2-speed automatic transmission, dual exhaust, and full-size Spinner Wheel Covers over wide whitewall tires which are perfect for cruising down long stretches of roads or through scenic countryside loops.

The 1964 Chevrolet Corvette with a convertible roof is just one of 13,925 made (total production that year was 22.,229); these were the third year of production for this very popular car. At this time, there were already many different configurations available and options included things such as 4-speed manual transmission, power brakes, power steering, Soft Ray-tinted windshields, heaters, and defrosters amongst other things. Another nice touch was Goodyear Viva tires in either gold stripe or white lettering – both adorned with spinner wheel covers. With a sleek exterior that matched its interior coloration perfectly (a beautiful crimson). Anyone who buys it can enjoy the comfortable feeling of riding in high style.

One of 1,163 made and one of just 547 equipped with a 6-speed manual transmission, this 1998 Chevrolet Corvette Pace Car Edition is one outstanding addition to the history of Corvette pace cars. Few production vehicles of any type have come close to this unique model for sheer audacity. Indeed, if a pace car’s secondary purpose is to serve as an image-maker for its manufacturer, it doesn’t get much better than this. In just its second year of production, the C5 Corvette was ready for pace car duty straight from the Bowling Green assembly plant; its all-new LS1 engine (brand new) came in at 345 HP giving it better handling than any previous models had shown before.

The Indy Pace Car package included exclusive Pace Car Purple paint, sweeping multicolored Indianapolis 500 exterior appliques, yellow-painted standard wheels, and black and yellow leather seats with matching interior trim. Like all Pace Car Edition convertibles, this example is fully equipped, offering power steering and disc brakes, power windows, locks and mirrors, an Active Handling System, dual-zone air conditioning, a black convertible top, Delco-Bose AM/FM/CD stereo, and more.

LOT S35 2007 CORVETTE CONVERTIBLE 60L 2082 Miles

This Corvette from 2007 is an outstanding tribute to the 2006 Indianapolis 500 Official Pace Car with the added benefit of being a convertible instead of the original Z06 coupe. It was built for racing enthusiasts alike and still holds true to this day! The 2006 Indy 500 marked the 17th time a Chevrolet had paced the 500 and the eighth time a Corvette led the pack. The 500’s status as a uniquely American tradition, combined with Chevrolet’s An American Revolution advertising campaign, inspired a bold red, white, and blue graphics theme displaying an abstract U.S. flag pattern with Victory Red and Cobalt Blue stripes on an Arctic White base, flanked by white stars. A large Victory Red Bowtie emblem and Chevrolet windshield callout drive home the sponsor’s participation, and large Official Pace Car and Indianapolis Motor Speedway badges emphasize this Corvette.

At just 2,082 miles, this 2007 Corvette convertible is a very fresh and well cared for example powered by the lusty LS2 6.0L V-8 engine, in this case mated to a paddle-shifted automatic transaxle. Goodyear Eagle F1 tires on alloy wheels covering red-painted brake calipers complete this replica Pace Car, which also features black and gray leather upholstery, air conditioning, and AM/FM sound with Bose speakers.

When Model Year 2013 Corvette came about, so did the 60th anniversary of the Corvette. There was one exception this year, however; this would be the last year for C6 Corvettes to be made. In celebration, Chevrolet has brought back what is considered one of their most iconic models–the Convertible and a 427 cubic-inch engine. This new model set a new standard for what it means to drive a Corvette. This machine is built off of the sturdy hydro-formed steel frame just like its predecessors but comes with an all-aluminum dry-sump lubrication system that gives drivers 505 horsepower at their disposal at any given moment as well as an already proven rear-mounted six-speed manual transmission and rear axles that can provide you with maximum power transfer along with full magnetic ride control and even a convenient space saver in case you ever run out of gas!

Showing 26,724 miles on the odometer, this 2013 Corvette 427 convertible turns heads with its brilliant yellow paint, matching yellow brake calipers, and machine-face, 10-spoke, 19- and 20-inch Corvette wheels with Michelin Pilot Sport tires. The power-operated, black convertible top folds away to reveal a black leather interior boasting dual-zone air conditioning, a six-way power driver’s seat, a Bose Premium stereo, navigation, cruise control, and Bluetooth connectivity.

This sharp yet used Chevy Corvette Convertible has minimal mileage. It was born as a Code W Grand Sport – denoting its 430 HP LS3 V-8 engine and 6-speed, paddle-shift automatic transmission. With 4-wheel power disc brakes with silver calipers, leather bucket seats, power windows, locks and mirrors, an AM/FM/CD stereo, 60th Anniversary Corvette door tread plates, and Goodyear Eagle F1 tires on 18-inch 5-spoke wheels it comes equipped with the optional 3LT trim package which adds a power telescoping steering column, memory package, heated power seats, and a home remote control for opening up the convertible top all at once.

In addition to being decked out with the usual bells and whistles like power windows, locks, AC, etc., this 2013 Corvette also received some extreme modifications courtesy of Street Legal Performance – America’s leading aftermarket supplier of high-performance products. From the installation of a TVS 2300 supercharger combined with custom headers and an enhanced performance exhaust system, you can bet that this car has got it all covered! You’ll definitely want to keep an eye out for this one. It comes with unbeatable specs but it also looks undeniably sleek thanks to its custom vented hood, ZR1-style front fascia along with newly installed side skirts and rear quarter panels which give off an unmistakable vibe!
