It is selling at Freije & Freije's Upper Midwest Auction…
The C5 Corvette was one that propelled the car into the modern performance arena, and earned the car younger and faster fans. It landed with the LS based platform, a first for the engine that would go on to be the most popular engine in recent times.
Zora Arkus-Duntov, a race enthusiast, gave the Z06 its legs, and the Corvette the first taste of racing with the Z06 package in 1963. When added to the already highly coveted second generation Corvette, the Z06 package made the Vette ready for the track with the addition of a thicker front stabilizer bar, larger diameter shock absorbers, and much stiffer springs, and it came with the 360 horsepower 327-cubic-inch small block engine.
Fast forward a few decades, and by the time the fifth-generation of the Z06 was no longer a package, but it’s own model. The C5Z debuted in 2001 as a hardtop-only model with thinner glass, lighter wheels, a titanium exhaust, and lighter battery. For 2001, the GM Gen III engine produced 385-horsepower, but it got beefed up by 2002 to produce a heartier 405-horsepower.
This example is perfect to add to your collection, or pick up as your new daily driver. It shows 23,019 miles and has leather seats. It’s powered by a 5.7-liter engine, which is backed by a 6-speed manual transmission. See it here.
