Lot Description:

Car and Driver said "[The 1998 Corvettea has a] rock-solid feel, easy top operation, practical and spacious, and seriously fast makes this the most desirable Vette since 1967" (Oct 1997 issue of Car and Driver).

Everybody knows that Corvettes have been turning heads since 1953, but now it's your turn!  Iconic, classy, sporty, and fun; this Vette will give you lots of waves, thumbs-ups, head nods and tons of smiles, but none other than the one on your face when you feel the power as you punch the gas pedal!

This car has a salvaged title BUT we couldn't notice anything amiss while extensively "test driving" it for our seller.  The owner hit a deer and to her surprise the insurance company totaled the vehicle.  She had all of the repairs done (mostly cosmetic with the front end and quarter panel body) and then it passed rigorous inspection with flying colors.  The inspector said that it was better than "most cars on the market."  So bid with confidence!  This is the real deal!

Our test drive showed us that it starts, runs, drives, brakes, and shifts with no known issues.  It definitely accelerates well!!  All of the electronics work, power windows, etc. all work.  The heat and the A/C work as they should.  The targa top is VERY easy to remove and replace (there is a nifty storage configuration in the trunk that holds it in place when you want to drive with the "top down").  The ABS doesn't work (the only issue we are aware of) - so don't drive it on ice (like anyone would anyways!).  The car has NEVER been driven in winter; always stored properly and well-cared for.

Auction Estimate: $10,000 - $11,000
