1998 Corvette Parts

The 1998 C5 Corvette is commended for its slick exterior design, exceptional drivability, improved ergonomics, and superb performance specifications. This model was a true success — receiving recognition from Car and Driver Magazine as “the most desirable Vette since 1967,” earning Motor Trend’s Car of the Year award, and leaving many Corvette enthusiasts wondering how future C5 models could get any better. After the disappointing, limited number of C5 models produced in 1997, the 1998 Corvette was surely a much-needed win for General Motors.

Available only as a coupe in 1997, the 1998 Corvette model brought back both coupe and convertible options. It was also the first Corvette convertible to include a trunk in 36 years, allowing for a more spacious, comfortable, and convenient riding experience. Although the 1998 convertible Corvette weighs 114 pounds less than the previous 1996 convertible model, it possesses more than four times the torsional rigidity.

The 1998 convertible Corvette also made a name for itself by pacing the Indianapolis 500 for the fourth time. It featured a Pace Car Purple exterior paint color, a black and yellow leather interior, a black convertible top, yellow-painted stock wheels, and other special accents. 1,163 replicas were produced.
