Seven Hills Motorcars is proud to offer this beautiful 1981
Corvette in Excellent condition with only 30,775 original miles.
This Corvette looks fantastic, runs great, and is an excellent
driver. The White (10) over Red Leather interior (752) is an iconic
and beautiful color combination that looks stunning on the car.
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;
this is especially true for very low mileage examples like this
car. The low original mileage is verified not only by the condition
of the car, but also the clear Ohio title 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.
Besides the correct paint and trim codes this Corvette is
completely "Numbers Matching" meaning the engine and transmission
in the car are the correct and original units that were installed
in the car new at the factory in 1981. Virtually every part we
checked on the car is correct with the proper part numbers and
appropriate date codes. We have run the numbers on literally
hundreds of Corvettes over the years and there are very few that
are so correct and original as this car. Even very detailed parts
like the distributor, carburetor, alternator, starter and even all
of the glass is all date coded and original. The last six digits of
the VIN, 424799, are stamped on the engine pad, which is pictured
in this ad, and the engine is original to the car. The transmission
is also original with the last six digits of the VIN stamped on the
main case and pictured.
A copy of the AutoCheck report for this car is shown in the photos.
Please note that it is totally clean, shows no accident history,
and verifies the low mileage as original. The car also comes with
the original owner's manual and warranty booklet.
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 White (10) exterior is in fantastic 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 original N90
aluminum wheels are in beautiful condition with a brilliant finish
and no curb rash. The raised white letter tires are brand new with
less than 50 miles on them. They are also correctly sized
225/70R15. There are no major imperfections that have been
intentionally excluded from the photos. This Corvette has
absolutely no rust issues. As one can see in the many photos of the
underside of the car, it is very clean underneath. The frame is
totally solid with no rust around the "key hole" area in front of
the rear tire and we 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.
Window Date Codes
Please note that all of the glass on this Corvette, both door
windows, windshield, the rear window, and EVEN BOTH GLASS T-TOPS
are all original as each piece predates the car's body build date
of March 31, 1981 (H31). Original glass is a good indication that
this car has had no major accident history and never sustained
The Red Leather (752) interior in this Corvette is in outstanding
condition. The gauge faces are crisp and clean and the lenses are
crystal clear. The dash and console look great with no cracks or
sun fading. The original radio works well and gets good reception.
Most importantly, the dash has never been cut or modified for an
aftermarket installation. The door panels are in nice shape and the
door pulls are solid and intact. The seats are in excellent
condition and look just as good in person as they do in the photos.
There is just a small spot or wear in the typical area on bolster
where the driver gets in and out. Please note that these appear to
be the original seats and leather skins, not some cheap aftermarket
covers or replacements. The carpet is also in great condition with
no major stains or tears. This includes the rear carpet, which is
often neglected. 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. Please note that both
seat belts work and retract properly. This is a common problem on
C3 Corvettes and an issue many buyers do not think to check. This
Corvette has never been smoked in; there are no burn marks and no
aroma of cigarettes.
The original T-Top bags are still with the car.
Corvette interiors from this era are not known to wear well and the
excellent condition of this original interior is a huge testament
to the meticulous care and attention this car has received
throughout its life.
This Corvette seems to be in very good mechanical condition. The
numbers matching L81 engine starts right away every time, runs
well, and idles smooth. 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. The brakes are responsive and do
not pull to one side or the other. The transmission shifts well
throughout the power band. The car runs cool and does not overheat.
This Corvette has plenty of power and is quite fast. Also, the
engine compartment is beautifully clean, detailed, and correct as
one can see in the photos. The original ignition shielding,
catalytic converter, and smog pump are all still in place as well
as the correct and original air cleaner and finned aluminum valve
The horn works as do all the exterior lights, interior lights,
wipers, power windows, indicators, dash lights, radio, rear window
defogger, and power locks, which is a very common problem on C3
Corvettes; even the key buzzer still works. The blower for the
heater and a/c works on all speeds. The air conditioning itself
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. The headlights go up quickly,
evenly, and with no effort or binding the mechanism. 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. All of the gauges work with the
obvious exception of the clock. Not enough can be said as to how
much of a pleasure it is to ...for more information please contact
