I've wanted a corvette since I was 18. Blink of an eye and I'm 58. I've been looking for awhile and have found a 2010, 1LT Coupe, Auto, No accidents, Seller is 3rd owner and has had it 5 years. 32,000 miles and asking $23,000.
He did have it inspected prior to his purchase by a specialty performance dealer had oil changed and thoroughly inspected front to back. A few minor nicks and hardly noticeable. New tires at 23,000, New Optima battery this past spring. It does have an after market exhaust but inspector could not determine manufacture, it also has a Halltech airbox and aftermarket radio. Stored winters in garage on carpeted plywood with battery tender from each October thru May. He has not had any issues with the car for the 5 years he has had it and performed scheduled oil changes.
Price seems in the ballpark for what I've been seeing. Anything I should take a closer look at or any reason to or not to consider buying this car? Thinking of offering 20,500 or 21,000.
Any advice will be welcomed.

I just bought a 2011 1lt auto with 36k on it for 25k that is all stock except wheels and tires. It sounds like a good deal to me!

So, did you buy it? I've owned 3 C6's: an '05 Z51 6speed manual convertible, an '07 paddle shift automatic convertible, and a '13 427 convertible. I still have the '05 that Lingenfelter supercharged and added Z06 rear quarter panels. It has all custom leather interior, roll bar, G force racing harnesses, high rise scooped hood, fire flames, ground effects, and a bunch of other stuff. I've had it since new. Also have a '63 Grand Sport racecar replica and a '15 Z06 convertible with Z07 race track package. I don't have a favorite because they are all great and very different from each other. Here's some pics of the '05.
