The Appeal

The Corvette has to be the ultimate automotive embodiment of the American dream. An American citizen truly knows they’ve made it when they can visit their local Chevrolet dealership and drive away in a shiny new Corvette. 
Launched in 1953 as the C1 and still part of their range today as the C8, it's an enduring American icon and here we have a very well presented C5, dating from 1997. Imported from sunny California in June 2022, this Corvette has since been road registered and MOT tested for use on UK roads. It’s in fantastic overall condition, no doubt aided by its life in a dry climate, and the substantial collection of paperwork demonstrates very good past service history. 
Subtly upgraded with a K&N cold air intake system now feeding its 5.7-litre V8, this Chevy is as dramatic to drive as it is to look at, so would be the perfect addition to any collection of American cars.
