Chassis No. 1G1YY26E975101778. Black over black leather. 427-cid, 505-hp V-8, 6-speed manual. Comes with original window sticker.

Evaluation: Original | Showing 1615 miles in the photos and few apparent signs of use other than some light wear on the door panels and driver’s seat bolster, as well as what looks like some scraping on the bottom of the mufflers. Located in Arizona.

Bottom Line: A 505-hp V-8 with titanium connecting rods, an aluminum frame, carbon-fiber fenders—sounds like a six-figure supercar, not a used Corvette. All things considered, the C6 Z06 is one of the best performance bargains anywhere. It has been for a few years, and there are no signs of that changing. It isn’t hard to find one in this price range, but it will usually have much higher mileage and a track day or two under its belt, so this was a good deal. Thirteen years and barely 1600 miles ago, this Z06 left a Chevy dealership for around 70 grand. It takes only a bit of mental gymnastics to think of it as basically a new car at half-price.

Condition definitions
Condition #1: Concours
Condition #1 vehicles are the best in the world. The visual image is of the best vehicle, in the right colors, driving onto the lawn at the finest concours. Perfectly clean, the vehicle has been groomed down to the tire treads. Painted and chromed surfaces are mirror-like. Dust and dirt are banned, and materials used are correct and superbly fitted. The one word description for #1 vehicles is “concours.“
Condition #2: Excellent
#2 vehicles could win a local or regional show. They can be former #1 vehicles that have been driven or have aged. Seasoned observers will have to look closely for flaws, but will be able to find some not seen by the general public. The paint, chrome, glass and finishes will all appear as excellent. No excessive smoke will be seen on startup, no unusual noises will emanate from the engine. The vehicle will drive as a new vehicle of its era would. The one word description for #2 vehicles is “excellent.“
Condition #3: Good
#3 vehicles could possess some, but not all of the issues of a #4 vehicle, but they will be balanced by other factors such as a fresh paint job or a new, correct interior where applicable. #3 vehicles drive and run well, but might have some incorrect parts. These vehicles are not used for daily transportation but are ready for a long tour without excuses, and the casual passerby will not find any visual flaws. “Good” is the one word description of a #3 vehicle.
Condition #4: Fair
#4 vehicles are daily drivers, with flaws visible to the naked eye. The chrome might have pitting or scratches, the windshield might be chipped. Paintwork is imperfect, and perhaps the body has a minor dent. Split seams or a cracked dash, where applicable, might be present. No major parts are missing, but the wheels could differ from the originals, or other non- stock additions might be present. A #4 vehicle can also be a deteriorated restoration. “Fair” is the one word that describes a #4 vehicle.
Condition #5: Poor
Running, but battered, incomplete, and perhaps rusty.
Condition #6: Parts car
Parts car.
