A 1998 Chevrolet Corvette fully dressed in black with exterior code 41U and has a black leather interior. Plus, this loaded Targa coupe checks all the right boxes with everything from very low mileage to a 4 speed electronically controlled automatic transmission allowing you to really enjoy the LS1 V8 power. It makes for a highly original and highly desirable way to get a blackout classic with tinted windows and Targa top.



Black is always one of those colors we love on a performance machine, and so a factory black car always has appeal. Plus, the way the panels still fit on this aerodynamically smooth body showcases the sleek shine of what shows all the right signs of being the factory finish. It’s an overall style that shows good care. That’s because this car has only averaged about 1,069 miles annually.

So it has seen less use than cars of its age, and that’s important as it approaches the quarter-century milestone. It will soon be eligible for classic car registration/benefits in some states. And if it’s going to have vintage plates, you want one that looks like a respected coupe. That’s why everything from the glass to the alloy wheels shows a detailed quality classic.



The black interior is quite a desirable feature, because after all, you can take the Targa top out and show off a full midnight attitude. But the way the leather seats feel quite supple, you can tell this one was never out in the elements too long. In fact, just like the exterior, the low mileage and good care mean this shows far less wear and a ton more care than a commuter.

And the preserved nature extends to the loaded list of factory features. You have cold-blowing air conditioning, power windows, power locks, keyless entry/alarm, dual airbags, anti-lock brakes, and a premium AM/FM/CD stereo by Bose. Even the spacious trunk looks immaculate. Plus, in a Corvette, the best treats are reserved just for the driver. Your seat power adjusts to your ideal driving position, the leather-wrapped sports steering wheel is on a tilt column, and the full gauges work with the 4 speed auto to do a terrific performance dance every time you hit the road.



Under the hood is the correct LS1 V8. This fuel-injected motor has been treated with care, and you can tell by the exceptionally clean condition. But the real reason why you love this V8 is because of its versatility. It fires up with an eagerness that wants to hit the road, and the 4-speed auto transmission is a desirable feature that puts you in full control of the 345 horsepower. And the fully independent sports suspension and four-wheel power disc brakes make sure you can carve up the road. But this one is also ready for the grand tour. The power steering, cruise control, and overdrive gear make it ready for easy highway travel.

Complete with the owner’s manual, this well-respected all-dark C5 Corvette you’ve been looking for. So don’t let this fuel-injected modern classic slip away. Bid today!!!

    ‘After reading the narrative an’ looking at all the posted outstanding views of this low-mileage, all-black late 90’s LS1 enchantress . . . well, I wanna ask why the owner isn’t asking more?$?
    It’s gorgeous from every angle an’ breathtakingly beautiful. Granted there is more to learn about this one — but it certainly looks like it’s well worth it from what’s revealed in the posting. I hope it ends up in the care of someone who will keep it in such pristine condition always… it seems to deserve it.

    Seller states that the Corvette has been moved to its Cedar Rapids, Iowa location.

    Hi, I would like to bring the car to CA, I’m concerned about the DMV Certification & Smog Cert. Any info. about mods on the car? Does it still it’s stock cats?

    Thanks, Dave.

      Seller states that it still has the original catalytic convertors, new pipes after that. Otherwise stock with the original shifter knob reinstalled.
