C5 Corvette Restorations
Fourth Generation (1997-2004)

 

The Chevrolet Corvette (C5) was produced by Chevrolet from 1997 to 2004. This sport car featured a hydroformed box frame, a design that offered an improved structural platform, especially for a convertible body style.
 

The transmission was relocated to the rear of the car to form an integrated, rear-mounted transaxle assembly, connected to the all-new LS1 engine via a torque tube — an engine/transmission arrangement enabling a 50-50 (percentage, front-rear) weight distribution for improved handling. 
 

The LS1 engine initially produced 345 hp (257 kW), subsequently increased in 2001 to 350 hp (261 kW).
 

The 4L60-E automatic transmission carried over from previous models, but the manual was replaced by a Borg-Warner T-56 6-speed capable of a 175 mph (282 km/h) top speed. Relative to the C4, the new platform and structural design substantially reduced squeaks and rattles.
