For sale in our St. Louis Showroom is a very low mile, black over tan 2000 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible. Referred to as the C5 generation, this Vette has everything you'd expect from a sports car. The Vette features the bullet proof LS1 5.7 Liter V8 which churns out 350 horsepower. In this example the LS1 is backed by a 6-speed manual transmission with the power delivered to the rear wheels. The curvaceous body is constructed of fiberglass which means light weight, and no rust. This is the last generation to feature flip up headlights like Corvettes have been famous for since 1963. This one is finished in gloss black and sits on 5 spoke factory polished wheels wrapped in low profile radial tires. Corsa dual exhaust exits in the center of the rear through 4 exhaust outlets and provides a nice throaty sound to otherwise stock LS1. A tan cloth top can be closed when the weather is less than ideal, but this one is best enjoyed with the top down. Inside you'll find tan leather upholstery covering two sporty bucket seats. The odometer reads 14,799, which represents the actual mileage on the car. Options for this 2000 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible include: Air Conditioning, AM/FM Radio with CD Player, Leather Interior, Cruise Control, Power Windows, Power Seats, Power Mirrors, Power Locks, Tilt Wheel, Seat Belts, Traction Control, Driver/Passenger Airbag, Keyless Entry, Anti-Lock Brakes, Anti-Theft System, Power Steering, Power Brakes, Radial Tires, and Aluminum/Alloy Wheels. With under 15,000 miles on the odometer, this C5 Corvette Convertible has hardly been broken in and is ready to play!

1996 Chevrolet Corvette

1996 Chevrolet Corvette


Engine: 350 ci
Transmission: 6 Speed Manual
Mileage: 20,222 ( undocumented )

We offer this 1996 Chevrolet Corvette for sale in our Atlanta Showroom. This is a clean car fax one owner corvette ready for a new owner to cruise the streets. The C4 Corvette was known for its evolved, sleek and modern look. In a departure from the fiberglass panels of its forbearers, the C4's rear bumpers and panels were made from molding plastics, a sheet molding compound. The C4 fastback coupe was the first general production Corvette to have a glass hatchback (the limited edition 1982 Collector Edition being the first Corvette equipped with this feature) for better storage access. The Corvette C4 came standard with an electronic dashboard with a digital liquid crystal display dash, with graphics for speed and RPM and digital displays for other important engine functions. The C4 represented a clean break from the previous generation of Corvette with a completely new chassis and modern, sleeker styling. Since emissions regulations were still changing and electronic engine management was in its infancy, horsepower was, compared to earlier generations, low. Therefore, the primary design emphasis, at least for the launch, was on handling and braking, with all-independent suspension with light-weight suspension and wheels, and all new brakes with aluminum calipers. The front suspension saw the C3's coil springs replaced by a transverse fiberglass mono-leaf spring, which was only 1/3 of the weight of the coil springs while also introducing an anti-roll bar-like effect on the front.[4] The price of this no-holds-barred emphasis on handling was ride comfort, especially with the Z51 performance and handling package. The C4 did not use separate body-on-frame construction like its predecessors. Instead, it used what GM termed a "uniframe", which consisted of a traditional perimeter frame, with the door posts, windshield frame, halo, and the rear portion of the floor pan integrated into one welded assembly. This was not a unibody assembly, as none of the exterior body panels were structural members. Due to a styling decision to use a targa top instead of T-tops, there was no structural member tying the windshield frame to the halo as on the C3. This required extremely tall side rails on the frame to maintain chassis rigidity, and as a result, the door sills were quite deep, with entry and exit likened by contemporary auto journals to a "fall in and climb out" experience. The targa top bolted into place, becoming a structural component, rather than simply latching on like T-tops. Options include: AC, AM/FM radio, CD Player, Convertible top, cruise control, power brakes, power window, power steering, power locks, tilt wheel, seat belts, driver airbag, passenger airbag, leather interior, radial performance tires, alloy wheels.

2004 Chevrolet Corvette Z06


Engine: 5.7L V8 LS6
Transmission: 6 Speed Manual
Mileage: 21,730 ( actual )

Only 21,000 miles on this meticulously maintained 2-owner commemorative edition Zo6 Corvette, this limited production car was built to share the racing achievements of Corvette with its enthusiasts and has had some special components added! The commemorative edition had subtle changes including the lemans Blue color scheme, embroidered seats, and special exterior badging. Since it left the showroom floor though, this car has had a Magna supercharger mounted to the top of the already powerful LS6! This supercharger paired with the long-tube headers was able to lay down almost 470 horsepower to the wheels on a dyno tune pass. With all this power however and few modifications the car still feels and sounds tame at normal driving pace, but once you roll into the throttle it picks up in a hurry! A Dewitt radiator was equipped to keep up with this higher horsepower LS6. The aftermarket carbon fiber hood makes just enough room for the supercharger to clear and will make you think twice about challenging this car to a race. Inside the car you will be surrounded in comfortable yet firm black leather seats and many amenities to further enjoy the ride including, power seats with memory options, power windows, power locks, power mirrors, and a Bose premium stereo. This car is ready for long drives down back roads or, if racing is your thing, a track day would suit this car well and would surely lay down some impressive times! Whatever your plans may include this commemorative edition Corvette is up for the challenge! This vehicle is located in our Denver showroom.

The now legendary LS series of engines was first introduced in 1997 and set the benchmark for all small blocks.

This commemorative edition has its original 350 HP LS1 engine that is just an absolute blast to drive. With not one single modification this Commemorative edition is a rare breed almost a unicorn if you will. Most of these have had at least a cold air intake added but this beauty is 100% stock. The paint on the car is amazing looking like it’s a 700-mile car and not 7000-mile car. The wheels are in perfect condition with no pitting or curb rash they are excellent examples of this now timeless design. With the automatic transmission giving you the ability to drop in drive and smash the gas making the good times abundant in this car. Of course, sitting in those leather wrapped bucket seats is always a wonderful thing and with the logo embroidered in the headrest it lets everyone know this is not just a regular Corvette.

2002 Chevrolet Corvette

2002 Chevrolet Corvette


Engine: 5.7L V8 F OHV
Transmission: 4-Speed Automatic
Mileage: 25,080 ( actual )

Now for sale in Gateway Classic Cars of Houston is this beautiful, ultra-low mileage 2002 Chevrolet Corvette. This is the coupe version of the LS1 5.7l powered Corvette featuring an excellent 4L60-E automatic transmission and 3:15 gears. The engine and transmission are original to the car, as you would expect from a car that has only done 25,080 since it left the factory over 15 years ago. The car is finished in the factory Light Pewter with a black leather interior. Options include air conditioning, AM/FM Bose stereo with 12 disc CD player, active handling, heated mirrors, fog lamps, heads up display, performance handling package, glass Targa 1 pc top, cruise control, power seats with lumbar, power brakes, steering, locks, windows and mirrors, anti-lock brakes, traction control, tilt and telescopic wheel, keyless entry, seat belts, driver and passenger airbag, run-flat radial tires, LSD and aluminum alloy wheels. The original window sticker has been preserved that shows the full options for the car, including the original $47,425 window sticker. This is a member of the C5 Corvette family that ran from 1997-2004. This was the first car to feature the all-new and legendary LS1 power plant from Chevrolet, which made 345hp in the beginning but was subsequently increased in 2001 to 350hp. It was the perfect blend of reliability, fuel-mileage and drivability, while simultaneously allowing for big power and a great aftermarket scene with a massive amount of performance upgrade options. The C5 is competitive in regards to 0–60 mph acceleration times with almost all premium sports cars of its era, including the Aston Martin DB7 Vantage, and the Ferrari 355. A composite of published performance numbers for the base-model coupé and convertible gives a 0–60 mph time of around 4.5 seconds, and a standing quarter-mile time of around 13.3 seconds at 108 mph (both times for a vehicle equipped with the 6-speed manual transmission). The C5 was a turning point for the Corvette. Undoubtably a future collectors item. This would make a fantastic example to hold on to. Don’t miss your chance to get behind the wheel of this one. Contact Gateway Classic Cars in Houston for more information. Financing and shipping options are available. Office hours are Monday through Saturday 9-5pm central time. The telephone number for our showroom is (832) 243-6220 or if you prefer, you can email us at houston@gatewayclassiccars.com.

2003 Chevrolet Corvette Z06

2003 Chevrolet Corvette Z06


Engine: 5.7L V8 F OHV
Transmission: 6-Speed Manual
Mileage: 15,734 ( undocumented )

We have a great looking and driving 2003 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 for sale here in our Milwaukee showroom. A successor to the ZR-1 made its debut in 2001 as the Z06, giving a nod to the high-performance Z06 version of the C2 Corvette of the 1960s. Instead of a heavy, double-overhead cam engine like in the ZR-1, the Z06 used a tuned version of the standard LS1 engine (designated the LS6), with a higher power output which initially produced 385 hp (287 kW). Although its total output was less than that of the previous late model ZR-1s, the Z06 was much lighter, and could out-perform the ZR-1 in every category except top speed. It also cost substantially less than the ZR-1. The Z06 had a total curb weight of 3,118 lb (1,414 kg). Chevrolet engineered several modifications for the Z06 to put the increased power to its best use, starting with the most structurally rigid body style?—?the hardtop or FRC (Fixed Roof Coupé). The new components added to the Z06 included: uprated FE4 suspension, larger wheels and tires, revised gearing ratios, and functional brake cooling ducts. The Z06 is 38 lb (17 kg) lighter than a standard C5 hardtop thanks to weight-saving measures such as a titanium exhaust, thinner glass, lighter wheels, non-EMT tires, reduced sound proofing, fixed rear radio aerial, and a lighter battery. Starting with the 2002 model year, power was increased to 405 hp (302 kW) due to a larger CFM air intake, stiffer valve springs, lighter sodium filled valves and more aggressive camshaft lift and timing. This vehicle is located in our Milwaukee showroom. You can view this 2003 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 in greater detail including HD pictures and an HD video of it running and driving at Gatewayclassiccars.com. If you are interested in purchasing this vehicle or have more questions regarding it please call us at (262)-891-4253 or email us at Milwaukee@gatewayclassiccars.com.

1999 Chevrolet Corvette

1999 Chevrolet Corvette


Engine: 5.7L V8 F OHV
Transmission: 6 Speed Manuel
Mileage: 30,924 ( actual )

Gateway Classic Cars would like to ask you to take a minute and reflect on this 1999 Chevrolet Corvette which has been made into a tribute to the events of September 11th, 2001. This car is powered by the original 350 and 6 speed manual transmission. The first thing that you notice on this car is the airbrush work. The artist used the factory paint as his base and created this tribute to the American Eagle, America, and the Flag. It appears to be blowing in the wind going down both sides of the car. Other styling modifications include side panels on the rear window. They give the car a fastback look, and unique license plate holders that add a distinctive look to both the front and back. Open the hood and the tribute continues. Silhouettes of the twin towers are airbrushed on the underside of the hood and old glory is blazing on the engine covers. All the surfaces are either airbrushed or covered in chrome under the hood. It looks like a show car. The interior is also highlighted with custom Red and white leather shifter and e brake boots. There is a custom convertible type “Waterfall” panel behind the seats. The interior still has the original seat covers and carpet. With 31,000 original miles the car runs and drives as you would expect. It shifts with ease and is equipped with a HEADS UP display to keep you focused on the road. This car is a pleasure to drive and you can’t ignore the feeling that you get driving it. National Pride can be a very strong emotion. To view this 1999 Chevrolet Corvette in greater detail, including HD pictures and an HD video, visit www.GatewayClassicCars.com or our Philadelphia showroom located in West Deptford, NJ.

2002 Chevrolet Corvette

2002 Chevrolet Corvette


Engine: 5.7L V8 F OHV
Transmission: 4-Speed Automatic
Mileage: 58,701 ( actual )

Gateway Classic Cars of Houston is proud to offer up this unique 2002 Chevrolet corvette. This car was built to show support for the fight the end breast cancer and has a very colorful paint scheme, but also has some serious power to it. Under the hood of this beauty is a 5.7-liter V8. The engine has been set up with twin turbos in a sort of sleeper style. The turbos are in the rear where the mufflers would normally be. This allows for a very clean and factory look under the hood other than a large aluminum intercooler. All the engine work was performed by Gulf Coast Performance and the car was tuned by England green Corp. to 445whp/445wtq. Sending all of that boosted power to the rear is a four-speed automatic transmission that shifts firmly through the gears. Upon opening the door, the driver will immediately notice this car is meant to be over the top. The doors are fitted with parts to allow them to open out and up in a Lamborghini style. Both seats are done in a custom lamb skin pink to match the exterior paint. Aiding in driver comfort, this sweet ride comes loaded with items including a radio/12-disc CD player, power seats, tilt/telescopic wheel, keyless entry, and power mirrors. All these features add up to be one comfortable sportscar. Moving outward, the exterior of the car is probably one of the most eye catching C5s you will ever see. The base paint is a pewter metallic that has pink flames sprayed on top. The flames show good depth and really highlight the fact that this was a high-quality paint job. The car sits atop chrome alloy wheels that are wrapped in performance low profile tires with good tread life left in them. Overall this car is an award-winning eye catcher with loads of power!

1959 Chevrolet Corvette

1959 Chevrolet Corvette


Engine: 283 CID V8 270HP 2x4BL
Transmission: 4 Speed Manual
Mileage: 60,200 ( undocumented )

For sale in our Dallas-Fort Worth showroom is this gorgeous tuxedo black 1959 Chevrolet Corvette convertible. This stunning 2 top Vette has a beautiful red interior, a 270 hp 2x4 solid lift 283 with a 4-speed transmission and wide whitewalls with knockoff hubcaps. To the credit of all involved, the 1959 Corvette was “cleaned up” considerably. For one, the chrome “suspenders” were removed from the design, providing Corvette with a more swept back look that was synonymous with speed. For another, it was decided that the faux hood louvers would be eliminated, returning the Corvette to a semblance of its former self. While these features were key identifiers of the 1958 Corvette, there was no question that the elimination of the excessive chrome would reduce weight and help increase performance. Much like the exterior of the Corvette, the interior received minor, but significant updates as well. Both the door handles and the armrests were repositioned and a small-item storage compartment was added beneath the passenger side grab bar. In addition, both the driver and passenger seats were redesigned to offer increased lateral support of their occupants. All tachometers now indicated up to 7,000 rpm and offered redline and safe limit indicators. Sun visors were introduced to the 1959 Corvette as a new option and concave instrument lenses replaced the flat covers of the 1958 Corvette, thereby reducing sun glare (and other reflections) that might cause a driver to become distracted.
