2003 Chevrolet Corvette C5 LS1 5.7 V8, Auto, Targa top.

Based Nr Winchester Hampshire SO23... HOWEVER I'm willing to meet at ANY UK port or airport and willing to deliver personally within Europe and the United Kingdom with a deposit that covers the travel cost.

So....... We had to move house and now with limited parking so need a 4+ seater toy so we can down size the 3 car fleet to just two.

Have dreaded to advertise as the time wasters are soul destroying life suckers, but here goes....

So I purchased this stunning example of a C5 almost a year ago from a guy that only just got it weeks before paying £18,950 in fact he beat me to it when it was only 10 miles from me.
Anyway it would not fit up his drive when he moved a week later lol!!, so a 500 mile round trip later I had it home in Hampshire again.

Now its a known fact the early pre 2000's C5 can be a royal pain for parts as many parts are no longer made at all, then there was a number of improvements made to 2003, then there is the common C5 issues most suffer from (all minor thankfully)

THIS EXAMPLE is 2003 model and not an issue, all parts can be purchased. but HENCE WHY cheaper early C5's can be found if on a tight budget.

Personally I let my guard down as guy I purchased from was an older gent, plus I've owned over 20 American cars so got a little cocky and barely checked it over...

So unknowingly took on a few issues,but I've since addressed all the little things, rocking driver seat DONE, Elec seat movement locked DONE, Inoperative heating display,DONE, Heads up display inop DONE and speaker dropping out (sound) DONE.

So after all that there is no financial gain for me, as I'll be taking a fair hit on price big time as it is, I've also....

Due to a weeping core plug at rear of drivers cylinder head I have replaced the lot which involved heads off or engine out!! I went with heads.

I found the internals are immaculate and clearly its been well serviced.

I replaced every single gasket I had to remove, replaced all core plugs for brass ones, multi layer metal head gaskets, obviously new head bolts, but also flushed cooling system, then run dex-cool for 10 miles before emptying again and refilling with dex-cool 50/50, replaced water pump, thermostat and belts with Gates products, also replaced upper and lower coolant pipes as noticed a slight nick in top hose.

The car is a major head turner, I had more looks than a Ferrari 360 in front at Beaulieu super car show, kinda surprised me.

Its in remarkable condition, been caught out wet a few times but winter here its been parked up and this is clearly seen by its immaculate underside.

Returns 20+mpg easy but I only potter and cruise, was much better before Iridium plugs went in.

Cheap insurance.

Chassis is again spotless immaculate with VIN Number on all sections showing original.

Engine bay, immaculate, no leaks or issues

Body is good, its of course all a flexible compound plastic, so no dents!! no noticeable scratches, does not require anything, but its very low, so a fair few scuffs under front bumper but mainly out of sight and only seen on a ramp.

She can be raised very easy, almost like coil overs, a turn of a bolt/nut at each corner.

Transmission is faultless, no issues, no leaks, shifts like it should.

seems to have many many options Inc the all important Performance diff G92 3.15

Interior is black leather, black carpets and roof lining, way above average and pretty much immaculate, no seat wear or rips, carpets like new with immaculate fitted over mats, center storage box lid as a couple of stress lines, but that's being very fussy.. they can be replaced easy enough or even recovered, dash is immaculate and totally crack free and all gauges work as they should.

its running high end 3SDM 0.01 Alloy wheels, these are 19" front and 20" rears. (still being made to date)

Private plate now removed so back on the 52 plate

It has a full cat back bespoke stainless exhaust system, it sounds fantastic, sounds more exotic than the standard V8 burble I'm used to on the yanks, I've just fitted iridium plugs which has made it more lively it seems, it would outrun my 2010 Camaro SS 6.2 with ease, but I'm past my race days lol!! but a bi-product seems to be it often pops from exhaust at gear shift or slowing.

I REALLY DON'T WANT TO SELL BUT NO CHOICE, MUCH RATHER IT GOES TO AN ENTHUSIAST But again out of my hands, however I'm not desperate and will rather store away than give away.

RATHER A CASH SALE, But may do something on a
American Turbo diesel V8 Truck, F250, F350
Or something very different, American V8 with 4/5 seats so we can sell one of our other cheaper cars.
Also would be interested in a Sports cruiser boat but 21ft+ as have a 19 already.

Any questions ask away.

Loads of paperwork..
