The new Corvettes of today are superior in almost every way to the previous Corvettes we’ve seen and driven over the years, but there is one thing they don’t have and that’s nostalgia.
We are now 15 years past all the hoopla and celebrations of Corvette’s 50th Anniversary in 2003 when it seems like it was just here yesterday. While new Corvettes and even whole Corvette generations have come to pass, the fact that Chevrolet occasionally would mark a moment in time with a Special Edition Corvettes offers those willing and able a chance to go back in time.
For those of you in the market for a previously-owned Corvette and want something a little more special than just a standard Corvette, may I suggest the 2003 50th Anniversary Convertible like this one for sale at our friends Corvette Mike in Anaheim, California?
To be upfront, this is a quid pro quo post. Troy Worrell at Corvette Mike recently helped us out with some photos of this 50th Anniversary Corvette for our Special Edition book project that I’ve been diligently working on the last few months. To repay the favor, I wanted to share this great 50th Anniversary Corvette for sale with our readers.
And seriously, what’s not to love about the 2003 50th Anniversary Corvettes. They feature a special one-year Anniversary Red metallic paint with a shale interior and champagne-painted five-spoke wheels. Special 50th Anniversary badges, emblems and embroidery are featured throughout the car while mechanically, all 50th Anniversary Editions were loaded with options including the F55 Magnetic Selective Ride Control, Heads Up Display, Memory Package, Delco/Bose CD audio system, Power telescoping and tilt-wheel steering column along with the Twilight Sentinal and Electrochromic Mirrors.
The 50th Anniversary Corvette Convertible at Corvette Mike’s is a well-maintained California car and comes equipped with a 6-speed manual transmission and has just 47,350 miles on it. So it’s a collector car in driver condition!
The car doesn’t have a stated price so give our friends at Corvette Mike a call and ask about stock #5950. Troy Worrell can be reached by voice or text at 714-712-0060 and the car can be seen on CorvetteMike.com.
