For Sale: 1981 Chevrolet Corvette in Lutz, Florida

Vehicle Description

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!
