She comes with her original L81 5.7L (350cid) V8 4Bbl Engine.
The L81 is the only engine that was available on the 1981 Vette. Her L81 engine is mated to her original 3-Speed Turbo-Hydramatic Automatic Transmission.
She has HEI electronic Ignition, tainless steel, ree-flow exhaust manifolds and lightweight magnesium valve rocker covers in black with bright ribbed surface.
Her automatic transmission included a converter clutch feature in 2nd and 3rd gears. The standard anti-theft system was improved for 1981 by adding a starter-interrupt feature that disables the starter circuit if a forced entry is detected.
Arming of the system is obtained by using the manual lock or power door control on the driver's door.
Simply unlocking the driver's door with the key will disarm the system. She has a thermostatically-controlled auxiliary electric fan to boost cooling.
The auxilliary electric fan cuts in if supplemental cooling is needed.
This allowed a smaller fan with fewer, ower pitched fan blades for reduced fan drag and a quieter operation. Her engine air cleaner has the original chrome cover.
Her Computer Command Control system automatically adjusts ignition timing and air-fuel mixture, as well as the torque converter lock-up clutch that operates in second and third gears. Her brakes are hydraulic, ented four wheel discs that are 11.75-inch diameter with single calipers. SUSPENSION:

Her Rear suspension is also Independent with trailing link and transverse semi-elliptic mono- leaf springs. BODY:
