This 1999 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible '53 Commemorative Edition combines the classic looks of the 1953 C1 Corvette with the modern luxuries of the later model C5 'Vettes. The Corvette was originally introduced in 1953 at the Motorama display at the Waldorf Astoria in New York. Although the first year Corvettes were sparsely optioned and underpowered, they are most likely the most collectible Corvette ever produced because only 300 were produced in the initial run. Nonetheless, Chevrolet continued producing its highly popular and highly successful Corvettes virtually every year since 1953, refining and improving the performance and elevating the luxuriousness along the way. By the fifth generation, the Corvettes came fully loaded and stocked full of power. This particular Corvette was professionally converted by Advanced Automotive Technologies (AAT) to be made to look like a classic 1953 Corvette. To convert this C5 Corvette into what it is today, AAT took a C5 Corvette and added custom body panels, custom trim, and dressed up the interior to give this C5 a one-of-a-kind classic look. Under the hood is a Fuel Injected 5.7 Liter LS1 V8 Engine that pushed out 345 horsepower in its day. The LS1 powerplant is hooked up to a 6 speed manual transmission that makes this C5 Corvette a total blast to drive. This 99 Corvette Convertible comes loaded with options! 4 Wheel Anti-Lock Power Disc Brakes provide plenty of stopping power for the muscle found under the hood. Power steering ensures that you can get in and out of tight spaces with ease. The front grille, quarter panels, and rear have all been dressed up or replaced to portray the look of the original '53 C1s. The interior has an gorgeous C1 look! The Arctic White Exterior is reminiscent of the Polo White exteriors found on the '53 Corvettes and the black cloth top with rear glass window is in fantastic shape as well. The Firethorn Red leather bucket seats and center console are all in great shape and harken back to the look of '53 Corvettes. The door panels, glove box, and steering wheel are covered in matching red and white leather as well, combining the exterior and interior color schemes. The white Hurst shifter knob is also in nice condition and has a great feel. The interior on this 'Vette is totally loaded! Power windows, dual side power mirrors, full climate control, variable speed windshield wipers, cruise control, tilt steering wheel, and an AM/FM/Cassette entertainment system are excellent luxury options. The instrument cluster is equipped with a 200 MPH speedometer, tachometer, amp gauge, fuel gauge, oil pressure gauge, and temperature gauge. If you're looking for a car that has superb performance and that you can just hop in and drive but has a classic look, this 1999 Chevrolet Corvette '53 Commemorative Edition would be an excellent choice.
