For Sale: 1981 Chevrolet Corvette in Palmetto, Florida

Vehicle Description

Please visit for additional photos, information, and a video. This vehicle is available for viewing by appointment only. Please call us to schedule an appointment. With 60,220 ACTUAL MILES documented on the title and the CarFax, this is a rare find! Who doesn't want a Red Corvette? This beauty pairs that red exterior with a luxurious beige interior. Power steering, power brakes, A/C, AM/FM/CD player, tilt steering column, power antenna, glass t-tops, rear window defroster, power seat, power windows, power locks, remote mirror, alloy wheels, and radial tires round off the options list. The original color combination is as you see this car: 75 Paint code which is Red, and a 64 trim code with Camel interior. Recent work includes a new aluminum radiator, rebuilt HEI distributor, new spark plug wires, thermostat, cruise control transducer, stabilizer bar control link, thermostat gasket, new coolant, sway bar end link, A/C system check and charge, tie rod ends, idler arm, hoses, power steering control valve, power steering cylinder, rebuilt T-arm assemblies with rotors, brake lines, new unisteer rack and pinion, fuel pump, water pump, radiator cap, fuel pump gasket, engine mounts, spark plugs, battery, rebuild carburetor, A/C blower motor resistor, alternator, and tires. All of this was done in the last 1,500 miles. Receipts go with the car. A chrome air cleaner lid tops off the engine and looks great with the finned valve covers. The engine compartment is clean and shows well!
An AM/FM/CD player has been installed inside along with the upgrade of an armrest pad and cupholders for these C3 Corvettes! The glass t-tops have a carrier bag, and there is also a wind deflector that goes in front of the t-tops for when you're cruising with them removed. There is also a car cover that comes with the vehicle for storage.
The exterior has a very subtle gold pinstriping that brings just a touch of character to set this car apart at the shows. The stock alloy wheels always look great on these Corvettes, and they are wrapped in newer radial white letter tires with a ton of tread left. Only about 10% of Corvettes were painted red, surprisingly, 1981 and to see one with documented low actual miles is a rare find! These have been increasing in value consistently over the last 5-7 years and make a great investment since the older chrome bumper cars have been priced out of reach for most people.
