This 1981 Chevrolet Corvette is a great opportunity. It's a loaded
coupe with desirable features like T-tops and V8 power, and the
overall style shows off a fun and easy cruiser. Plus, it's priced
so that you can add more features for a truly personal classic car
Red Corvettes always look a bit sportier than the rest. And these
later C3s have terrific features like the color-matched front end
and full-width rear spoiler to amplify this sleek sports car look.
This one even plays into the features for a nice coordinated
contrast in black. The rockers, fender vents, and tinted glass
(including the T-tops) have a touch of dark side style. The total
package has a cruiser kind of appearance. What that means is a
finish that won't make you nervous to have out on the streets, and
the clean and bright style lets you drive it with pride. Plus, good
body lines and bright alloys give it a nice fundamental
Tan interiors look good on red cars and give them an added feeling
of sophistication. That feels right on a loaded coupe like this. It
has factory features like power windows, power locks, a
tilt/telescopic steering column, and T-tops. And stock the AM/FM
8-track stereo and air conditioning still have the components in
place if you want to have them restored. Plus, as a true Corvette,
its largest attraction is a true driver's car. You sit down in the
contoured bucket seats, grab the three-spoke steering wheel, and
gaze through to the large speedo and tach. And of course, we love
how these C3s have a very driver-oriented setup with the auxiliary
readout mounted front and center in the dash.
Under the hood is the 350 cubic-inch V8 with a four-barrel
carburetor on top. We love a proper small block Corvette because
these hardy powerhouses have plenty of worthwhile upgrades to fit
any budget. There is room for investment and improvement with the
motor, and if you've worked with Chevy small blocks before, you
know the potential is nearly limitless. But from day one you have a
runner that knows how to live up to the classic Corvette feeling.
It's a true performer with a fully independent suspension and
four-wheel power disc brakes. And it also can settle into a more
everyday feeling with features like the three-speed automatic
transmission, power steering, and cruise control.
The value price lets you decide to restore the air conditioning,
upgrade to a modern radio, add brightness to the finish, or some
other personalization. But no matter what your plans are, this is
an attractive coupe that only needs the drive home to put the first
smile on your face. Call today!!!
