C5 Corvette Parts

        An entirely new Corvette, the C5 was introduced in 1997 and ran through 2004. Customer expectations and performance standards had changed in recent years and the C5 Corvette delivered. Prior to the C5 high performance meant a noisy and uncomfortable ride, with advancements in technology this was no longer the case.

        Although the C5 styling, structural rigidity and much more curvaceous design was new there was no mistaking it was a Corvette. Despite the fact the door sills were almost four inches lower the chassis was much more ridged than its predecessors allowing for more precise handling and less potential for rattles. The wheel base increased more than eight inches which gave the C5 a roomier passenger area.

        Originally the C5 Corvette was only available in a coupe although designed from the ground up to be a convertible which was introduced in 1998. And again the Corvette was chosen as the official pace car for the Indianapolis 500.

        In 1999 a third body style, a lighter and faster hard top, became part of the C5 line up. This style was the first since 1967 coupe that was not an open air car.

        Whether you are looking for performance or quality parts and accessories for your C5 Corvette, Eckler’s has the knowledge and parts you need.
