GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this 1980 Chevrolet Corvette
for purchase. The C3 stingrays ran from 1968 all the way to 1982,
evolving along the way. The 1980 Corvette weighed 238 pounds less
than a comparably equipped '79 model. This reduction was achieved
by virtue of many changes, including redesigned front and rear
impact-resistant bumpers, revised T-tops, thinner windshield and
door glass, and thinner hood and door panels. The 1980 Corvette
also used considerably more aluminum than its predecessors,
including an aluminum intake manifold for the base engine
(previously, only L82 engines got aluminum intakes) and an aluminum
rear cross member and differential housing assembly. The latter
saved a full 40 pounds all by itself. Also, for the 1980 the
Corvette's aerodynamic efficiency was improved noticeably, but in
the opinion of most, the body changes actually helped rather than
hurt the car's appearance.
This '80 Corvette looks sharp in the original Dark Claret paint code, just repainted in 2016, giving a unique look to the legendary stingray. This is a fresh professional restoration by an owner of a body shop showing excellent attention to detail in all corners. It's powered by the 350 V8 and automatic transmission. Extensive work has this stingray in top working order with new parts including: axles, wheel bearings, rear end, rack & pinion steering, Bilstein shocks, radiator, and tires. The interior is also updated with new seats and arm rests. Enjoy this professionally re-done C3 stingray in showroom condition! Please call or email for more details!
