Corvettes for Sale: Original 4K-Mile 2002 Corvette Offered on BAT at No Reserve!


C5s continue to be the performance bargain of the Corvette world, in this writer’s opinion.

In the interest of full disclosure, I must admit that I’m partial to C5s, having even owned the same Torch Red ’97 coupe twice (it’s a long story).

But we’re sure you’ll agree that this 2002 Corvette, done in Torch Red with Light Oak interior, is one very nice sports car.

Whereas my ’97 was showing some signs of its age with 80,000 miles on the odometer, this ’02 is virtually new – with just 3,707 miles!

It’s up for sale now on bringatrailer.com, and with six days left in the auction, the no-reserve price is still a very reasonable 16,777 so far. Somebody could very well get a bargain Corvette, especially considering this one listed for $45,515 when it was originally delivered to Maroone Chevrolet in Greenacres, Florida.

Indeed, this was a one-owner car until last month, when the selling dealer acquired it. It’s equipped with the standard 5.7-liter V8 that pumps out 350 horsepower, but impressively it’s one of just 8,553 examples with the six-speed manual transmission (out of the 35,757 that left the Bowling Green factory that year).

Other features include the Z51 Performance Handling package, head-up display, removable roof panel, dual-zone automatic climate control, power-adjustable seats, and AM/FM/CD stereo with Bose speakers. Additions include a B&B Performance muffler, aluminum shift knob, and European half-amber tail light lenses (with the original shift knob and lenses also included with the sale).

The seller changed the oil and performed a safety inspection in November, and the Carfax report comes back clean. The car shows little signs of wear, other than peeling noted on the finish of the front Corvette emblem, an easy and inexpensive fix.

The paint on the car appears to be nearly perfect, with very few if any rock chips visible on the front bumper and hood in the extensive photos provided in the listing. The interior likewise is perfect, as you might expect with such low mileage. Speaking of the interior, we always felt that the overall design was better and more “Corvette-ish” than the subsequent C6, but that’s just one man’s opinion.

  1. Nice car! The C5 is an excellent first time Corvette for anyone looking to get into the Corvette hobby.

  2. Regretfully, I just sold a show condition torch red/light oak C5 convertible in September. Wonderful car and truly more fun to drive around town than my C7. Nothing wrong with the car, but simply a matter of too many cars for the garage space and the likelihood of moving to another house soon precluded adding more garage stalls. Whomever ends up with this car is likely to be very pleased.

  3. Very nice, I had a 97′ Torch Red coupe. But I have to argue on the C6 interior is much nicer then the C5. I’m on my second C6 now with the latest being a 2011 GS with 15k on it. C5’s are a great deal though, especially the ZO6.
