1998 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe (Grape Ape)

Photo of a 1998 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe (Grape Ape)


Bought this car by mistake actually. Was on the auction sight and I watched it run through it's course. Auction ended without it getting the reserve. Came back up for bid the next week so I started a watch again. Thought the color was rather unique. Thought about it for a couple days and decided to bid on it. Put in my bid and wouldn't you know it, I got the reserve met. Guy calls me the next day and we worked out a deal. Actually found this in my home state of Nebraska in Omaha. Went home for a visit on my next weekend and picked it up. Been a great car so far. Bought it on May 18, 2007 and did some checking on it and it actually rolled off the line May 28, 1998. Can't get much closer then that on a used car. After I got it home the mod bug hit. Looks a little different now then it did when I picked it up. I think it looks much better.


LS1 350 with 345 hp. Pretty much stock.
Best 1/4 I have got from it down here is a mid 13 @ 106. Could do better but it has the 273 gears in the back.

Factory Options

Not much in the option department.

A4, Six-Way Power Seats, AM/FM Stereo w/CD Player

This is 1 of 381 painted this color.

Nothing to radical yet. Pretty much stock engine.
