Supercharged Fixed Roof Coupe Corvette Could Be Yours If You Act Fast

2000 Corvette FRC

Paxton supercharger with supporting modifications and C6 Z06 suspension bits make this Corvette a high performance beast.

While scrolling through the C5 Corvettes for Sale section, we came across this wicked 2000 Chevrolet Corvette Fixed Roof Coupe. The “FRC” is the most-limited of the C5 Corvettes, representing just over 6,100 of the 67,000 units sold in 1999 and 2000 before the package was discontinued, but in addition to being very rare, these were the best-performing of the pre-Z06 C5 cars. The fixed hardtop roof and the minimal options kept curb weight low, while the Z51 handling package and the standard LS1 engine with 345 horsepower made the car quick in a straight line and in the turns.

The 2000 Corvette FRC listed for sale by “2000CorvetteFRC” offers substantially more performance, with a supercharger, a host of other engine upgrades, C6 Z06 suspension components and custom wheels and tires transforming this sports car into a supercar.

The Introduction

When the OP posted his gorgeous 2000 Corvette FRC for sale, he provided the following information.

Well I am putting my baby up for sale to buy a diesel truck. Its a 2000 Corvette FRC Nassau blue paint with CCW classic wheels. I have owned the car about 7 1/2 years and its been a blast. The car makes 681 HP and 605 TQ at the wheels and the restrictor plate is still in. It is tuned by SQC tuning and he is available to speak with if you have questions about the tune or how the car is as he has been around it since I bought it.

The car has the following done to it:
– new battery installed in January
– new brass headlights gears in both headlight motors
– stage 2 CNC ported C5Z06 heads
– Torque V2 cam
– LG 1 ¾” long tube headers with X pipe and Corsa axle back

I am probably forgetting stuff but if you have any questions feel free to ask

So the engine is built, blown and tuned to make roughly double the stock power, the suspension is upgraded to handle that extra power and the tires help with cornering and launching.

Rare, Beautiful and Fast

This 2000 Corvette FRC is painted Nassau Blue and with the only exterior upgrades being the bright polished wheels and the low-profile rear spoiler, so this car maintains the simple look of the original package. Sitting in a parking lot, this car looks like so many other C5s on the road, but with almost 700 wheel horsepower, this Corvette will beat just about anything that lines up on the street or the track.

"Before I was old enough to walk, my dad was taking me to various types of racing events, from local drag racing to the Daytona 500," says Patrick Rall, a lifetime automotive expert, diehard Dodge fan, and respected auto journalist for over 10 years. "He owned a repair shop and had a variety of performance cars when I was young, but by the time I was 16, he was ready to build me my first drag car – a 1983 Dodge Mirada that ran low 12s. I spent 10 years traveling around the country, racing with my dad by my side. While we live in different areas of the country, my dad still drag races at 80 years old in the car that he built when I was 16 while I race other vehicles, including my 2017 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat and my 1972 Dodge Demon 340.

"Although I went to college for accounting, my time in my dad’s shop growing up allowed me the knowledge to spend time working as a mechanic before getting my accounting degree, at which point I worked in the office of a dealership group. While I was working in the accounting world, I continued racing and taking pictures of cars at the track. Over time, I began showing off those pictures online and that led to my writing.

"Ten years ago, I left the accounting world to become a full-time automotive writer and I am living proof that if you love what you do, you will never “work” a day in your life," adds Rall, who has clocked in time as an auto mechanic, longtime drag racer and now automotive journalist who contributes to nearly a dozen popular auto websites dedicated to fellow enthusiasts.

"I love covering the automotive industry and everything involved with the job. I was fortunate to turn my love of the automotive world into a hobby that led to an exciting career, with my past of working as a mechanic and as an accountant in the automotive world provides me with a unique perspective of the industry.

"My experience drag racing for more than 20 years coupled with a newfound interest in road racing over the past decade allows me to push performance cars to their limit, while my role as a horse stable manager gives me vast experience towing and hauling with all of the newest trucks on the market today.

"Being based on Detroit," says Rall, "I never miss the North American International Auto Show, the Woodward Dream Cruise and Roadkill Nights, along with spending plenty of time raising hell on Detroit's Woodward Avenue with the best muscle car crowd in the world.
