This is a cool classic that's 50 years in the making. The exterior looks like the 1954 Chevrolet Corvette Nomad concept car, but beneath the custom bodywork is a more modern 2004 Corvette. So you get some rare and distinctive design lines, and it's now backed by a powerful LS1 V8, modern suspension, desirable six-speed, and all the modern amenities you could want.
The specialty builders at Advanced Automotive Technologies (AAT) were out to make retro-style 50th anniversary Commemorative Edition Corvettes. While these are rare, something even more extraordinary and rarer also came from their shop. Chevrolet produced a Nomad wagon concept car in 1954 based on the Corvette's design. It was only a dream machine, and it never hit the streets... until now. So when you see the 50th anniversary badges on this one, it's not only celebrating a half-century of the Corvette, but this 2004 model is also correctly recognizing the concept car. It's believed that there were only six examples of the AAT Nomads, and this is only one of two in red - always the most desirable Corvette color. They really took the time to get the details right. The toothy chrome grille, screens over the headlights, sweeping side trim with jet tails on the fender, and extra-long tailfins all instantly recall the first-ever Corvette. We especially love how they got the integrated exhaust tips and rear slats from the concept car on these specially built machines. It really ensures this remains special.
While it's retro on the outside, the inside is all about modern performance and comfort. The supple leather bucket seats provide the perfect balance of sports car bolstering and all day comfort padding. They are both are power adjustable, so you and your passenger can find the perfect luxury position. A proper limited edition car like this also needs to come with all your favorite features. It includes dual zone A/C climate control, a red leather-wrapped steering wheel, heated seats, dual airbags, AM/FM/CD stereo w/Bose speakers, power windows, power locks, anti-theft system, and keyless entry. There's even the convenient windshield head-up display (HUD). This awesomely vibrant red interior has the kind of freshness that will make you want to show it off with the red exterior. So you'll love taking out the targa roof. And since this Nomad's rear hatch is functional, it's easy to stow that top (and extra luggage) for the weekend trips.
While the first Corvettes almost died off because they were underpowered, you'll never have that problem in this creation. The C5 was a true leap ahead for sports cars when it received the LS1 motor. So it's great to have the correct modern fuel-injected V8 underneath the classic-style engine cover. The motor was built to be a happy cruiser for all-day driving. But this one also has the desirable six-speed manual transmission, and so you're just always a quick downshift away from truly unleashing the full potential of this 350 horsepower growler. There's also power steering, four-wheel disc brakes, cruise control, and a fully independent double-wishbone suspension. So this is the collectable car that's also versatile enough for everything from the backroads to the morning commute.
Complete with owner's manual, a true retro custom like this strikes the perfect balance between a modern performance car and an ultra-low numbers classic. So when one Corvette has it all, you know you need to hurry to grab it. Call today!!!
