Newstalgia Motors Presents Car No. 00180:
1999 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe
This Corvette has found a new home!
However, we'd be happy to locate another one just for you.
The C5 (Fifth Generation - 1997 through 2004) Corvette was a major change from the
previous generation. The transmission was moved to the rear of the car to form an
integrated, rear-mounted transaxle assembly which was connected to the all-new LS1
engine via a torque tube; this engine/transmission arrangement helped facilitate
a desirable 50-50 (percentage, front-rear) weight distribution for the vehicle.
The C5 quickly became regarded as the best performance vehicle available for the
price. In many cases, the C5 provided performance equal to, or better than, vehicles
approaching 2-3 times its sticker price.
Along with the higher levels of performance, handling and sophisticated styling changes, many hail the fifth generation as the best Corvette ever.
This offering is a superb example of a 1999 C5 Coupe, loaded with options and tastefully customized with performance upgrades in exceptional condition. It has been always covered and garage kept, never been raced and never driven in the rain.
