1981 Chevrolet Corvette BASE

This 1981 corvette. It starts runs and drives. It is almost a complete vehicle. It has a V-8 engine that starts and runs on all 8 cylinders, new gas tank and fuel pump and good exhaust system. It has new electric fans and a rebuilt steering column. The wheels are American Eagle. The carburetor is Holley. The intake manifold is Edelbrock Victor Jr. The hood has a 4" rise in it to allow for a supercharger or a tunnel ram intake. The title is clear and in my name.
The power steering works fine. The tires are in fair condition. The brakes work but the power boost is weak. All the instruments work except the oil temperature gauge (because there is no sensor on the engine). (This engine is from a 1980's chevy other than a corvette.)The transmission is a TH350. I have removed the speedometer from the dash but it can be put back in and should work fine. Tachometer works too.
The top is a 1-piece removable "Astrotop."
The interior is a custom interior put in by a previous owner several years ago. It is pure white vinyl and has matching door liners in white (that are not attached) that say "snowblind". The car needs new carpets. The door handles, latches and window regulators do not work very well and need to be reconditioned. The windshield wipers, air conditioning and the headlights do not work.
This 1981 corvette is basically the same car that was made from 1968-1982 and is known as a "C3" vette. 1981 was the last year the car was made with a carbureted engine.
The mileage indicated on the odometer (65818)may not be the actual mileage.
