Seven Hills Motorcars is proud to offer this numbers matching 1981
Corvette in spectacular condition. This Corvette looks fantastic,
runs great, and is an excellent driver. The Frost Beige (59) over
Cinnabar interior (67) is a beautiful color combination that looks
great on the car. It is also the correct and original color scheme
as verified by the codes on the trim tag, which is pictured below.
This is an excellent opportunity to own a classic Corvette that is
ready to be used and enjoyed at an unbeatable value. One could
easily buy this car now and sell it for more than the purchase
price in years to come as the market on the 1980 and 1981 Corvettes
is strong right now and on the rise. In our experience the 1980 and
1981 model years draw a good premium over other late C3 Corvettes.
The low original mileage is verified not only by the condition of
the car, but also the clear Ohio title, pictured in this ad,
showing the mileage as "Actual." Please peruse all of the photos,
the extensive list of numbers, video, and information to get a true
sense of how nice, clean, and original this Corvette really is.
A copy of the AutoCheck report for this car is shown in the photos.
Please note that it shows no accident history and verifies the low
mileage as original.
This Corvette is loaded with great and highly desirable options
such as high performance Gymkhana Suspension, N90 aluminum wheels,
and the glass T-Tops. The car is also completely numbers matching
with the last six digits of the VIN stamped on the engine block and
the main case of the transmission indicating the engine and
transmission are the original units installed in the car new at the
factory. Even items like the carburetor, intake, distributor,
alternator, and even the starter are all correct and original with
the appropriate part numbers.
As a side note, this Corvette is not a dealer auction vehicle. We
hand pick each car after careful inspection. Our Corvettes come
from owners who expect their car to go to someone that will give
the vehicle the same care and attention as they did. We invite and
encourage you to examine the car in person or have the car
inspected. Please take the time to scrutinize each picture. We
photograph each vehicle to the greatest extent so you can feel
confident about your purchase. If you have a question about the
Corvette, just give us a call.
The Frost Beige exterior is in excellent driver condition. As one
can see in the photos the finish has a terrific gloss, deep shine,
and smooth finish. Both doors open and shut nicely. The N90
aluminum wheels and center caps are in beautiful condition with a
brilliant finish and no curb rash. The Cooper Cobra tires have
about 90% tread left and are correctly sized 255/60R15. There are
no major imperfections that have been intentionally excluded from
the photos. There are some very tiny blemishes that were too small
to show up in the pictures, but nothing that is really noticeably
from about five or ten feet away. As one can see in the many photos
of the underside of the car, it is very clean and this Corvette has
absolutely NO RUST ISSUES. The frame is totally solid with no rust
around the "key hole" are in front of the rear tire and I have seen
no evidence of corrosion around the windshield, which are the two
most notorious spots for rust on a C3 Corvette. We have included
specific photos of the areas most prone to rust to show how nice
this car looks.
The Cinnabar interior in this Corvette is in outstanding condition.
The seats are in excellent shape and look as good in person as they
do in the photos with no rips or split seams. They are not worn in
the typical area on the bolster where the driver gets in and out.
The carpet is also in "like new" condition with no holes or tears.
This includes the rear carpet, which is often neglected. The door
panels are in great shape overall and the door pulls are solid and
intact. The jack and jack handle are still with the car, stored
correctly behind the passenger seat. The original spare is still
with the car and has never been used. This Corvette has never been
smoked in; there are no burns marks and no aroma of cigarettes.
Corvette interiors from this era are not known to wear well, and
the excellent condition of this interior is a huge testament to the
meticulous care and attention this car has received throughout its
This Corvette seems to be in very good mechanical condition. I have
personally put about 10 miles on the car and during that time it
was totally reliable and a pleasure to drive. The car starts right
away every time, runs well, and idles well. It drives great and
feels nice on the road and at highway speeds. In the video in this
ad one can observe the car accelerating on the highway up to about
70mph, shifting through all the gears, braking to stoplight, and
going through some curves. Please note that there are no vibrations
or strange noises and the car performs quite well overall. There is
no blue smoke when starting or driving the car. This Corvette has
plenty of power and is quite fast. Also, the engine compartment is
beautifully clean and detailed as one can see in the photos. Even
the smog pump is still in place.
The horn works as do all the exterior lights, interior lights,
wipers, power windows, power seat in all 6 directions, and even the
power locks. All of the gauges work. The blower for the heater and
a/c works on all speeds. The a/c also works and blows cold. One can
observe the a/c compressor clicking on and engaging properly in the
video. The vacuum system for the headlights works correctly. Also,
the headlights go up properly with either the headlight switch or
vacuum override switch. There complete operation form both switches
can be viewed in the video below. The radio works and the antenna
goes up and down manually. The power windows both work, but the
left window clicks at the top going up. Not enough can be said as
to how much of a pleasure it is to drive this car, especially with
Gymkhana Suspension and the T-tops out on a beautiful day.
Also, for any 1981 Corvette you may look at, be sure to verify that
the "check engine" light is working correctly. The light should go
on when the key is turned on as a confirmation that the light is
working, then quickly go off when the car is started. A great
number of these 1981 Corvettes have had the bulb removed to mask
other problems. As one can observe in the video the "check engine"
light on this car operates just as it should, going on with the car
as a check and then going off when the engine is started.
Overall, this 1981 Corvette is in magnificent driver condition.
Numbers matching is extremely important in Corvette pricing, and as
any buyer can see this Corvette is extremely correct. The
originality, the beautiful original color combination, the
excellent overall condition, and the great extent to which the
numbers match make this car especially important and hard to
duplicate. There are photos in this ad of the VIN stamp on the
engine block, suffix code, engine assembly date, transmission VIN
stamp, and transmission casting date. This Corvette always gets a
ton of attention driving down the road. It is apparent that the
vehicle has been well taken care of by its previous owners. The
prices of C3 Corvettes have increased considerably over the past
several years. They are secure and wise investments for a ...for
