NoviStretch Presents Corvette of the Week: A Rare 2000 FRC Coupe
Not only is this 2000 FRC beautiful enough to be our NoviStretch Corvette of the Week, but she’s also a rarity. Or at least that’s what Corvette Forum member don2000 recently heard about his car. But in order to find out if he should believe such chatter, don2000 asked the rest of the C5 guys.
“I have a 2000 FRC standard coupe with the bone essentials… base model I guess. Well someone came to me and said my car is somewhat rare… I’m told 2000 was the only year that they made a FRC that was not a ZO6. Is this true?” asked Don2000.
As you might expect from a forum filled with the most knowledgeable Corvette fans in the world, don2000 got all the answers he was looking for. Basically, Chevy made the FRC (Fixed Roof Coupe) in 1999 and 2000 as an entry level coupe, before they realized how strong it was and it became the base for the Z06. So there’s not a lot of them. But as Lee DeRaud points out, that doesn’t necessarily make them “particularly valuable.” Of course, that could change.
But we’re not talking dollar signs here, we’re talking hotness. And after don2000 was persuaded to post some pictures of his rare ‘Vette, we got a chance to see just how hot she is. Well, as you can tell, she’s rare and beautiful enough to be our NoviStretch Corvette of the Week.
