Vehicle Description

1980 Corvette

Why This Car Is Special

We have not only a beautiful survivor 1980 Corvette coupe with only one beautiful re-paint in Claret Red, matching leather interior, and T-tops here at Skyway Classics, but is also modified one that you can win with on the street and at the car shows.


1980 was notable because it was the last model year Corvette without a computer, and ours has the 350 cubic inch engine under the hood that is the original numbers-matching engine, that was factory rated at 190 horsepower with its Rochester Quadrajet 4-barrel.

Now the engine has been upgraded with some performance and appearance items like the Edelbrock 4-barrel carb and aluminum intake manifold under the snorkel air cleaner with its chrome lid, enhanced exhaust system consisting of Hooker ceramic headers and a custom dual straight back exhaust system with original style cans and tips and had the catalytic convertor removed with twin pipes out back and a great sound.

The engine bay is highly original with valve covers as well as power four-wheel disc brakes, power steering wheel, correct blue engine enamel on the engine and backed by a TH350 3-speed automatic transmission with firmer shifts due to the B&M shift kit, and riding on the 255/60/15 Cooper Cobra white-letter radial tires on chrome Corvette wheels.

The stock carb, engine parts, and factory wheels it came with are included in the sale boxes.


The 40,456 miles shown are believed authentic as you can see on the engine, chassis, and the interior. It has a Claret Red leather interior that looks very original with many options including power windows, power locks, a tilt/telescopic wheel, and factory A/C that's been converted to R134a refrigerant.

The original AM/FM/Cassette radio has been removed and is in a box if you wish to reinstall it and a later stereo system has been added.

Other features include a leather-wrapped steering wheel, factory center console that houses the automatic shifter, factory dash with all the Corvette gauges, matching Claret door panels, plush Claret colored carpets, seatbelts, and an unbroken armrest.


The C3 Corvettes were patterned after the Mako Shark II designed by Larry Shinoda and built under Bill Mitchell's direction. The fender flares were designed into the body contours, egg-crate grills with matching front fender side vents and larger squared front directional lamp were standard.

Our Corvette is covered in the Dark Claret Red factory paint in 2000 and has been garage kept and well preserved since and looks great with its deep gloss and shine.

It has the Corvette hatchback that greatly improved the aerodynamics, the chin spoiler up front, the ducktail spoiler out back, and the T-tops up top. The trim looks good with the blacked-out rocker panels as does the Corvette badges and fiberglass stylish front and rear ends.


If you've ever wanted to experience a true Corvette American legend, you can't go wrong with the beautiful Dark Claret Red modified 1980 Corvette that we have here at Skyway Classics.

Trust me, everyone looks at this Corvette when you are driving it or sitting anywhere as it is a very nice looking Corvette and is a very rare color combination too.
