Evaluation: Production number 215 of 1163 Pace Cars built. 1576 miles and no serious wear to speak of. Clearly treated as a collectible since new, just like most of these purple and yellow convertibles.
Bottom Line: It ain’t easy on the eyes, not by any means and especially when you look at the interior, but the ’98 Pace Car has a following in the Corvette world. Pace Cars are worth around 10 grand more than a regular C5 convertible. Most of them have low miles like this, possibly because it’s hard to look cool in a Barney-purple car with yellow wheels and seats, but mostly because people treat limited-edition Corvettes as collectible from new. This one brought an expensive but not crazy price considering the odometer reading.
