Default 2004 "The Last C5" - only $1,000,000.

2004 Corvette Commemorative Edition 1SC "The Last C5"

Lemans Blue exterior, Shale interior.

350hp LS1 engine, automatic transmission, posi rear-end.

Factory features include the $3,700 1SC Preferred Equipment Group (Commemorative Edition package, polished wheels, Heads Up Display, memory package, tilt-n-tele, auto-dimming rearview mirror, auto headlights, cargo net with privacy shade), Museum Delivery, Bose CD stereo, dual power sport seats, dual zone electronic climate control, power windows, power locks, power steering, power brakes, power mirrors, cruise control, ABS, traction control, Active Handling.

This is your chance to see a true piece of Corvette history -- having rolled off the Bowling Green Assembly plant line on July 1, 2004, this is the VERY LAST C5 CORVETTE ever built! LOADED with options and in pristine condition with a clean ZERO OWNER Carfax, this car has never even been registered, is still on MSO, and shows just 28 actual miles! This car is AS NEW, and is truly a time capsule, complete with all of its factory plastic, stickers, and labels. Last of a generation cars like this only come along once in a blue moon, and there's only one place in the world that you can see the last C5 -- BUYAVETTE in Atlanta, Georgia! 28 Actual Miles.

Our Price: $1,000,000.
http://www.buyavette.net/2004%20Corv...ck%207018N.php


Anyone ever purchase from this BUYAVETTE in Atlanta, GA?

Some of their C4's have "FREE 2 YEAR/50K ADDITIONAL MILE WARRANTY WHEN PURCHASED AT ADVERTISED PRICE, GOOD AT ANY REPAIR FACILITY NATIONWIDE!" - I'm sure there's plenty of small print to void them from paying a claim.

Sure, I would pay that if they gave me $995,000 for a stock 2004 C5 coupe on trade!

I think $100K would be more in line.

I've seen this before, I'm surprised it hasn't sold in that time
There is no way in heck that will sell at that price, I would think it would be a hard sell at $100K. Plus it's an automatic

There are a lot of collectors out there that would want that car. It is special. It amazes me sometimes what some cars go for at Barrett Jackson. $100K would be the most I think it would go for. Not so special it's worth a million.

100k would be a steep price I would think. Sure it is unusual, but not "that" unusual!.

It is the last C5 and it's brand new. The owners think its worth a million so 1/10 of that price might be what it's really worth.

It would take someone with a huge ego to pay an exorbitant price for a car that was built for eight years and it’s only distinction is that it was the last one made, realizing this would be a desirable car to own in its own right.

It’s marketing, gets attention (even if YOU think it’s bad).

They’d accept $300k.

I know that.

Make an offer.

The last C2 sold for $660K at Barrett jackson in 2017, so the last C5 might be worth 1/10 of that..

When the last C5 is 50 years old in 2054, who knows!

What they ask and what they get can be a vastly different number. In this case, I think they are grossly overpriced.

When someone spends $1,000,000 they are making an investment. When making an investment, there's an expectation of an increase in value, i.e. a return. That Corvette has zero chance of making a return. If it was being sold to benefit a charity, maybe it could reach $500,000. As an investment, the $100,000 or maybe a tad higher is realistic, expecting it to grow to $150,000 in a few years. Only a fool would buy that car for $1,000,000.
As a fun expenditure, I'd rather buy a low mileage C5 coupe plus a low mileage C5 vert plus a low mileage C5 Z06, 2004 commemorative edition and still have over $900,000 to spend on whatever.
