1981 Chevrolet Corvette
You're looking at an American icon finished in its fully-coordinated and outstanding factory-correct color combo. So this 1981 Chevrolet Corvette was already an attractive classic, and that was before you checked out the exceptionally affordable price.
There's a certain sophistication about this Corvette. The factory-correct beige and dark bronze two-tone is a rare treat. And those who know Corvette history know that any two-tone 1981 car means this is part of the Bowling Green batch from the factory's first year. More than just history you'll love this coupe because there has been a quality investment to amplify the curves of one of the most angular Corvettes in history. In 2017 the upper beige was repainted. Also the multi-color striping that separates the two-tone all around the car and outlines the power bulge in the hood was all refinished. It all makes for quite an impression even when standing still.
The factory-correct tan seems like the perfect color to be a midpoint between the two exterior colors. Plus, there are plenty more signs of a quality investment. The driver's bucket has a new cover, the new weatherstripping gives you a quality seal, and the new carpeting keeps everything feeling plush. You also have provisions for some great features like air conditioning, power windows, and power locks. Plus, we know you'll love the feeling that happens when you take out the glass T-tops, grab the sports steering wheel, and twist the key after all, there's nothing like open-top cruising in your classic 'Vette.
It looks terrific under the hood with the tidy setup and hints of bright work in the air topper and ribbed valve covers. Of course, the real treat of the engine bay is this torque-filled 350 cubic-inch V8 that's topped with a four-barrel carburetor. It gives this C3 a plenty of get-up from the stoplights and makes a nice rumble from the dual exhaust. Plus, the three-speed automatic transmission and cruise control make this one ready for the grand tour. No matter how you drive it, the fully independent suspension, four wheel disc brakes, and Cooper Cobra tires on optional alloy wheels make for a terrific any time package.
Complete with owner's manual and the original warranty card, this is a significant and standout Corvette for quite a nice price. Don't let this one slip away, call today!!!
