The Last C5 Corvette Ever Built Costs $1 Million

For Sale

No previous owners. Museum condition. Just 28 actual miles.

On July 1, 2004, the final C5 Chevrolet Corvette rolled off the production line at the historic Bowling Green, Kentucky production plant. The C5, as we all know of course, was the last Corvette to feature the pop-up headlights, a tradition that started with the C2 in 1963. Dubbed "The Last C5," it’s currently on loan to the National Corvette Museum, but it’s still been put up for sale on This Le Mans Blue on Shale C5 has just 28 actual miles on it and carries an asking price of $1,000,000.

Remember, it’s a collector’s item and Corvette enthusiasts have been known to shell out big bucks for rare and special examples. Because of its build number status, this C5 is fully loaded with extras, including the then $3,700 Preferred Equipment Group/Commemorative Edition package which features polished wheels, head up display, memory package, auto-dimming rearview mirror, auto headlights, and cargo net with privacy shade. There’s also a Bose CD stereo, dual power sport seats, dual-zone climate control, ABS, traction control, and power everything. Under the hood lies the LS1 V8 with 350 hp and yes, sadly, this is an automatic-equipped Vette.

Whoever forks over the check will be receiving a Corvette that’s never had any previous owners. Its Carfax report reads Zero Owners, nor has it been registered. The C5 Corvette was a big deal for its time as it introduced a lot of new tech and design elements. The styling (notably the rear end) didn’t work for everyone but no doubt the C5 has rightly earned its place in Corvette history. But $1 million for this one? Hey, somebody will bite.
