1981 Chevrolet Corvette
An American icon in its factory-correct full midnight package and loaded with great features like ice-cold air conditioning. And it even has ultra-low mileage on its original V8. So, this 1981 Chevrolet Corvette is already an attractive classic, and that's before you checked out the affordable price.
There's a certain sophistication about this Corvette. The factory-correct black retains a high level of gloss and shine. It allows the sunlight to highlight the nicely-creased curves of this machine so it looks like it's wearing a well-tailored business suit. And as you get up close, you realize that the way the doors shut with authority, the clean glass, and the flush-fitting headlights are all part of a highly detailed package that tells you this car has been cared for correctly. Even the optional aluminum wheels have kind of superior shine that comes from mature ownership. That's why it seems quite believable when the consignor state the mileage is accurate, and this has averaged less than 730 miles annually.
Inside, the black bucket seats weigh less than earlier C3s, and they fold flush with the rear trunk area for better cargo functionality. Like any good premium Corvette of this era, it comes loaded with power windows, power locks, tilt wheel, electric rear defogger, and an upgraded AM/FM/cassette stereo. The power driver's seat gets you in the ideal position for the three-spoke sports steering wheel. Beyond that is the large speedometer and tachometer package in front and a full gauge panel prominently to the side. You can show this fantastically dark interior to the world as you go cruising around with the T-tops off. There's even ice-cold air conditioning running modern R134a, so you can stay open to the world all summer long.
The 350 cubic-inch V8 has a terrifically stock presentation, right down to the courtesy light and the "Keep your GM car all GM" decal on the air topper. And this tidy setup is no accident. You're looking at the original numbers-matching motor, and the good care combines with the low mileage to deliver a time capsule engine bay. The V8 inhales deeply through a four-barrel carburetor, and that gives a fine sports car sound out of the dual exhaust tips. And the fully independent sports suspension and four-wheel disc brakes mean you can have maximum fun on the roads. But more than just good for performance, this one can also be a nice car for the long trips. That's thanks to features like the three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and cruise control.
The sale comes complete with great paperwork, including the original window sticker, factory buildsheet, and owner's manual. So this classic Corvette is the full midnight sophistication package offered at quite a nice price. Don't miss out, call today!
