You're looking at an American icon that has been given the right
investments to be distinct and coordinated. So this 1981 Chevrolet
Corvette has a terrific cruiser style to already make it an
attractive classic... and that was before you checked out the
exceptionally affordable price.
The red and silver two-tone celebrates an interesting milestone.
1981 offered an array of two-tone to celebrate the opening of the
new Bowling Green factory. This factory design uses the two colors
to highlight some of the best curves of the C3's body. It even
showcases the power dome in the hood. But red and silver were not
part of the factory offerings. So you have the right classic design
lineage while also being a truly unique standout. There's a bright
gloss to this finish that shows a quality application. This is
complemented by the mirror finish glass T-tops, polished dual
exhaust tips, and optional alloy wheels. It all makes for quite an
impression even when this coupe is standing still.
The red leather seats have a cool style that will make you want to
take out the T-tops just to show the world how to harmonize with
all the red on the exterior. In fact, there's an attractive red on
the door panels, carpeting, center console, dash, and three-spoke
sports steering wheel. Not only does it look attractive, but also
this one comes loaded with a power driver's seat, power windows,
power locks, a tilt/telescope wheel, an electric rear defogger, and
an upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo with USB and Bluetooth. There are also
provisions for attractive features like cruise control and air
conditioning (they will need servicing to function again.)
The year correct 350 cubic-inch V8 is a hardy small block that
provides proper driving power. It retains its correct presentation,
right down to the "Keep you GM car all GM" decal on the air topper.
This gives an overall feeling of thoughtful care and the way this
one fires up reaffirms its strong-running nature. The V8 inhales
deeply through a four-barrel carburetor, and it exhales with added
power and authority as long tube headers feed the exhaust. And with
the fully independent suspension, power steering, a three-speed
automatic transmission, and four-wheel disc brakes come together to
create one of the best grand touring classics around.
With some maintenance records included, this is the distinct
two-tone Corvette that you just know was made to be out driving and
look good doing it. So if you really want to enjoy the full classic
car experience, call today!
