Live Out Your Indy Pace Car Dreams With This 1998 Corvette

Made by GM to commemorate the Pace Car program, you could slide behind the wheel of this as-new Corvette!

The Chevrolet brand and Pace Car program are a natural fit - especially when talking about Corvettes. Chevy’s sports car has filled the Pace Car position more times than any other make/model in the program’s history, will no fewer than 15 notices under its belt. This particular example, a 1998 Corvette Indy Pace Car convertible is a pristine celebration of the program, and one of the Special Edition production models Chevy released to the public.

With only 2,581 miles on the clock, this six-speed Vette is as close to a new 1998 Corvette Pace Car as you are going to find in 2019. It is one of the more colorful combinations in the Pace Car line, and it has been kept in the same attention grabbing condition as when it rolled off the Chevrolet assembly line.

The clock reads right over 15K miles, this Vette has brand new, fresh off the dealership qualities, 21 years after it was originally sold - it even still has the new car smell! For its time, this 1998 model came fully loaded from the factory, and features the coveted LS1 engine that has an entire lifetime’s worth of duty left it - whether you decide to race it, show it, or use it as your daily driver. Backing the engine is a Tremec six-speed manual transmission that will give you total control of this extremely capable American sports car.

Power is fed in a limited slip differential, where you get to control the Vette using a power speed-sensitive steering rack, and get braking power from a 4-disc brake system - Corvette brakes are heavily used in brake upgrades, so you get the best without modifications. The car is otherwise full of fully power options, dual zone climate controls, and so much more. 

This pampered Corvette even comes with the original window sticker, drive off tag, and owner’s manual.
