Just what everyone wants! A real red-red 1981 C3 corvette with a monster 454 big block in it. This corvette is a blast to drive, with plenty of power and great handling. Built 454, automatic transmission, 86,000 original miles, red leather interior, alloy wheels, power steering, power brakes, power windows, X-A/C, tilt and tele steering column, AM/FM/CD player, Edelbrock RPM intake, HEI ignition, dual electric fans, headers, high flow catalytic converter, Flowmaster mufflers, and much more. We just installed 4 calipers, brake pads, brake hoses, master cylinder, e-brake cable, idler arm, and alternator. We also changed the oil and filter, changed the rear end grease,checked and lubed the chassis, and much more. 1981 was the last year for a carburetor on the corvette. It was also the first year for a computer in a corvette. This was the last year for the Saint Louis Assembly Planet and the first year for the Bowling Green plate. GM only produced 4,310 Red corvettes out of 40,606 total production in 1981. - See more at: http://www.hobbycarcorvettes.net/corvette/1981-red-red-corvette-big-block-automatic-forsale/
