2004 C5 ZO6 for Sale 39K Miles Northern Virginia
39,900 miles. Price $22,990.
Reston, Virginia, about 25 miles west of Washington, DC.
This car is docile on the street, at home on the track, and it looks great.
Drive Train: Internally stock and original LS6 with Kooks Long Tube Headers and a Haltech Killer Bee II intake. It puts out about 375 RWHP. The engine/transmission has been bullet proof to date. Exhaust is stock ZO6 titanium with original cats and an H-pipe. Emissions legal in Virginia. I changed all fluids when I bought the car and have ensured regular oil changes since.
Brakes: Stock calipers, with DBA 4000 slotted rotors and fresh Carbotech XP10s and XP8s. Regular DOT 4 brake fluid flushes and renewal last done in July.
Suspension: VBP 1100 pound front spring, stock rear spring, and I will include an uninstalled 700 pound rear spring in the sale. Pfadt Race Engineering Heavy Rate front sway bar and a Lite Rate rear, both adjustable. Pfadt adjustable sports shock front and rear. Stock bushings. The suspension is pretty quiet.
Safety: The car has a professionally engineered four point roll bar, Sparco Evo seats, and Schroth belts that make it safe for HPDE or time trials (installation courtesy Piper Motorsport (http://www.pipermotorsport.com) near Dulles airport). Welded to frame, not bolted in. This is essentially the rear half of a cage, and the setup can be extended to a full cage if desired by adding the front hoop. Sparco Evo FIA seats; the passenger seat is an Evo Plus for bigger passengers. Schroth FIA six point, two inch belts with Camlock harnesses. Very comfortable, in addition to being safe. (Stock seat belts also remain in place for street use.) These safety upgrades cost over $5K.
Rolling Stock: For the street: Yokohoma Advan Neova 295/30/18s all around on 18x10.5 ZO6 black-polished rim reproductions. Very sticky and lots of tread left. Extended ARP studs front and rear, with Pfadt hardened and coated lug nuts. (And available separately at additional cost: autocross wheels, black-polished rim CCW Classics 18x11 and 18x12, mounted with 13 heat cycle but still decent Hoosier A6s 315/30/18 and 335/30/18. Also a set of TSW Nurburgrings, mounted with very fresh Toyo R888s, 275/25/18 and 305/30/18.)
Cosmetics: The car is garaged. A previous owner had installed a protective plastic shield over the nose and rockers. So the paint is in great shape, and the car looks good. The plastic itself has some scuff marks on the passenger side rocker. I can remove all the plastic or leave it in place so a new owner does not have to repeat the process. I can also leave most of it in place but remove the scuffed portion, if desired.
Amenities: air conditioning and original sound systems remain in place and work very effectively. (The stock stereo has its limitations.) Headlights and headlight motors are also stock and work normally. The interior carpet is OK in most places and even remains in place around roll bar mount points, though I am showing some wear on the floor where my right heel rests near the gas pedal. The previous owner and I are both non-smokers, BRW.
Maintenance: two issues chronic to Corvettes have been taken care of: the bridge between the two rear fuel tanks has been replaced, along with the fuel pump, at GM expense. The front control arms and bushings have also been replaced. I will provide a full maintenance log book.
I’m selling it because my career doesn’t allow me enough time to track the car as I originally planned—I’m too busy—and I’ve already won the local autocross titles I can reasonably aspire to with it. I haven’t had the time to do more than three track events a year with it, and I don’t see this lack of time easing any time soon. The car is the current SCCA Washington DC Region Super Street Prepared champion. Before that, it was A Street Prepared champion. (I’ve had fun competing for these titles with a friend who has a GT-3.) Before being modified to Street Prepared, it also was WDCR Super Stock champion for the previous owner. It won a PDX/Time Trial on Summit Point’s Shenandoah Circuit in August 2012—the only TT it’s ever entered. This particular car is not only driven on the street, it is driven to events, not trailered. It has never left me stranded, and it gets 26 mpg on the way home.
This is a track ready car that passes both emissions and Virginia safety requirements; both emissions and Virginia inspection are up to date through July 2013. It can be kept as a dual purpose street/track car or further modified in any of several directions—for serious SCCA or NASA time trial addicts, or for autocrossers who want to lighten it and compete nationally in either SSP or SSM; the reigning SCCA SSP national champ drives a C5 ZO6 just like this one.
A great opportunity to get where you want to go competitively without incurring all the expenses. Questions welcome. More pics available. Address e-mail to Jim at firstname.lastname@example.org
