Backstory from the owner...

You are looking for the nicest, best kept, best maintained 2004 Corvette you can find. You are here because the quality found in your neck of the woods, by even the lowest standards, is a joke. I know exactly how you feel. I attend specialty and dealer-only auctions every week searching for the best of the best in what I call "niche autos." I scan lists of over 3,000 vehicles locally each week and select cars I've come to know are hard to find and that fit my business model of marketing exclusively on eBay. C5 Corvettes make it onto my own list every time they show up and a small number of these, maybe 4-6 a week, might appear at one of the three major auctions here in the Las Vegas area or perhaps in local classifieds. During the past seven years I've seen 100 or more Corvettes every single year and what that means for you is; I have looked at, touched and smelled a lot of Corvettes. I am extremely picky about what to buy and this Corvette is one of just a handful nice enough for this business model. Past ownership, service history and condition, condition, condition are what matters. High performance vehicles are not always treated well, but a precious few are taken care of. This particular Corvette is one of those rare finds and you will not want to pass it up. Beautiful paint, spectacular interior, service history and an absolute knock-out to see in person. As good as my pictures are, they can't possibly show how truly beautiful this car really is. What else could you want? A great deal? I have that covered too but you will not be purchasing this fine automobile for wholesale or even low book value. You already know you get what you pay for and if you want unmatched quality, service, care and condition, this Corvette is a super rare find. Read what we have to say, examine every picture in detail, see the amazing condition, up close and personal and then make your call and give me an offer. I promise, you will not be disappointed.

Pick up the Phone and Call!


I do NOT Answer EMAILS Requesting Price

Before you send me that awful question, "what's your reserve or bottom line", let's take a moment to explain the book value below and how to get a deal on eBay. Book values from the Kelly Blue Book and NADA Guide and other sources online are notfictitious figures or double reality as most low bidders would hope for. They are actual figures produced fromtransactions all over the country on similar vehicles. In other words, they are quite accurate. Over 28 years in thebusiness, dealers like myself, buy and sell according tothesesresearched values. I always enjoy those who bid figures that are well below book values, it's somewhat entertaining, but it never gets them the vehicles they dream for; especially when those vehicles are in top level condition like ours. We arehere to sell cars. With twelve yearsexclusivelyon eBay and perfect feedback, it's obvious we do.

How? Well, that's easy too. Real buyers with serious offers in mind call us. They almost always want to talk to the person in charge; that's me. I want to talk to you too and help you own this awesome vehicle. It keeps me in business. So, if you want a fantastic vehicle like you see here, one that is far above the average in condition, serviced and documented like this, simply call. Asking through email for my bottom line? Well, I just think you're not too serious or willing to make an offer; makes it a waste of my time and yours. If you just want to know what the market value is, do what we do, look atKelly Blue Book andNADA Guideand other online sources. Does that mean we always hope to get exactly book value, above or below? That's a loaded question. Depends on the rarity, miles andcondition. Most important though, since you "are" a serious and capable buyer, call me and let's talk. I don't wear a Plaid Coat, I don't talk really fast and I am the guy in charge, the owner, enthusiast and purveyor of some of the finest cars on the internet...not to mention the best thorough presentations.

Let's make a deal...Call me



2004 was the last year of production of the C5 Corvettes. This coupe with exceptional low miles and fantastic modifications is a real head turner. Spectacular Torch Red clearcoat paint looks new car brilliant over a smooth, damage free fiberglass body. Killer sounding Flowmaster Performance exhaust for improved throttle response and you'll feel the horsepower. Look carefully and you'll see some really neat modifications rarely seen like the chrome wheels. Finding a near stock 2004 Corvette with miles this low is getting harder and harder, I know. I am out looking for thwese every week. Finding them in condition this spectacular, even more difficult. I only buy the very best Corvettes out there so I pass up twenty to every one I might buy...and then it better be like this one...near pristine.

Why do we present our cars with models?

Because it's fun and it gets your attention. After all, this is Las Vegas. What more could you expect?

Let's be clear, the models pictured with the vehicles are paid for the express purpose of showing off and presenting the vehicles.

They are not included with the sale of the vehicles or available to go with them at any point during the presentation online.

In other words, Models Not Included

But included with this sale, the winning bidder that does complete thetransactionwill receive all digital photographs of the vehicle and the models if they want them.

What about the condition? First you would want to know a bit about how picky I am about my Corvettes. I mentioned earlier about the process I go through to get nice Corvettes. That said, some of these cream puffs I get are stock, low mileage and beautiful like this one, but when they come with the modifications seen here, that's a serious bonus for both of us for sure. Then when you can see from top to bottom and know like I do that this sweet ride has not been raced or beaten, that's the real bonus for sure. Factory original paint in pristine condition, front to rear; I mean PRISTINE. Tires are very nice with plenty of tread, brakes look like new on the front and close to 50% on the rear. The interior, the same, beautiful without any extensive wear that you see on so many Corvettes reaching this age. Mechanically, SPECTACULAR! Needs nothing, my Corvettes never do and never will. No leaks, no issues and you can fly in and drive her like you stole her all the way home.

A breathtaking Corvette with quality and condition rarely seen in an 13-year old car and this Corvette absolutely hauls a$$ . . .

After driving literally hundreds of C5 Corvettes, I can tell you they are nearly bullet proof. The few with miles this low and this well taken care of however, are in a class all their own. The Bose audio sounds killer, the air conditioner blows cold and the sport seats are awesome. With the exhaust upgrades a throttle stab at just about any speed produces a savage roar and blistering acceleration. Near new car condition inside and out, everything works, nothing is broken. Just get in and enjoy.

C5 'Vettes have beautiful interiors. Keeping them beautiful after 13 years without rips (especially in the bolsters and seats) is a feat. It is just another reminder that the owners of this Corvette took loving care of their pride and joy. This is my passion, to find cars that were babied by their owners.

5.7Liter V8 (LS1)

350horsepower @ 5,600/360 ft-lb torque @ 4,000 RPM (stock)

Finding an undercarriage this clean will only happen when you find a car that has been extremely well cared for. No rust, No leaks, No damage. This is a very important aspect of our business model. If it isn't great under hear, what's up top can only be superficial.

Rear Brakes are at about 50%

Front Brake pads almost like new

A note from the owner.

I am a “used car dealer” but before that, I’m an automobile enthusiast. I love original rare and high quality modified vintage cars and over the past decade I’ve been in business, have come to appreciate an expanding selection of high-demand, high value vehicles. I specialize in and am always on the lookout for cars and trucks that were cherished by their previous owners. I have an experienced eye for quality but I’ve discovered that my preferred buyer can instantly discern such a vehicle and I have therefore, built my business and reputation around finding these kinds of cars for this type of customer. Super low miles and/or gentle ownership are strict requirements but a car must do something for me on a personal level if there is any hope of convincing you, the bidder, that this is an above average, exceptional vehicle. If nothing about the car excites me, it probably won’t do much for you either and I would soon be out of business.

With just four employees and no sales people, I realize how unusual a “dealership” like mine may at first glance appear. It has taken great care and effort to create such an organization and often, an unusually high investment in a particular car we are about to list. To sell the best it is critical to have a trusted expert in my corner and Chris, owner of A-Best Auto Repair in Henderson, Nevada has my back. He and his crew can fix anything; from a low budget beater to the absolute most expensive exotic you can name, no job is too big and no small detail unimportant. They do an exhaustive 130 point inspection on each and every vehicle and nothing escapes their methodical investigation. Experience has shown that everything I spend making a car truly “right” will come back to me not only with a higher selling price, but a happy customer that says good things about me. Moreover; it allows my writer to describe the car with ease and confidence, something that simply is not possible unless he thinks it is true. If major issues are found or the cost of fixing the car the way it should be makes it too expensive to sell, my choice is an easy one. I simply absorb a few hundred dollars loss for my trouble and sell it at auction.

After the vehicle is fully sorted it arrives at our facility where it encounters the suspicious eye of Tom, my writer that creates the presentations you see on eBay. He believes absolutely nothing I or anyone else tells him about the car as he combs over every inch, researches its history and documents originality and authenticity. Historical significance, rarity, special features, possible modifications and much more are used to accurately describe the vehicle with integrity and honesty. Most important for the potential buyer are the 100 to 150 high resolution pictures that I take myself. The pricey equipment I use would be right at home in the hands of the very best professional photographers and I’ve developed a logical format that walks you around the entire vehicle with close-up shots of every square inch. I provide detailed views of the interior, under the hood and then put it on a lift to show the undercarriage and confirm that the beauty of the car you are considering is not merely skin deep. Even our detailers are enthusiastic about the cars they so meticulously clean. This reconditioning can sometimes take several days and I’ve converted a paint booth, especially prepared for the professional clay bar and polishing each car lovingly receives.

Usually, I’ll also include a high definition video that shows the car doing its thing. If it’s a fast car, we film it going fast. If it’s a 4x4 you’ll see it crawling up a hill. In every case you will hear things like a rumbling exhaust, working sound system and watch the temperature fall on a digital, laser thermometer pointed at an air conditioning vent. How many “dealers” will video a Lotus Esprit doing a buck-eighty? We do.

No “dealer,” on-line or in the real world, takes it to this level. No other seller or organization provides you, the buyer, with so much information. I do this because it is the only way I can convince a person; often a world away, unable to touch or feel their purchase, that my vehicle is for real and what I say is the truth. All the above is necessary for me to stay in business while keeping integrity intact. I want every buyer to be happy and I need glowing feedback on eBay. To accomplish that I need satisfied customers that are as thrilled with their purchase as I was when I bought it.

If you have any questions at all, please call me on my cell at: 702-353-7500. If your inquiry is sincere and your offer serious, you’ll find me the most accommodating business partner you’ve ever dealt with. If you call or e-mail asking for my reserve or “what is my bottom line” I will be looking for ways to politely end the conversation. Until you are ready to actually pull the trigger, I will happily quote you the absolute highest nationally advertised suggested retail price I can find – a number we both know will not buy the car so, don’t waste your time, or mine. I am after all, a “used car dealer.”

Serious buyers know the maximum they can offer. I then must simply decide if I can sell for that number.

If you hit the reserve, the decision is no longer mine. I must sell at that number.

OFFERS GET MY ATTENTION: 702-353-7500 or Doug@vivalasvegasautos.com

If you questions about anything,

pick up the phone and talk a serious offer.


I don't respond to emails asking for"bottom line, sale price, reserve, or Buy-it-Now" figures on top line cars.
