For Sale: 1981 Chevrolet Corvette in Fairmont City, Illinois


Vehicle Description

For sale in our Fort Lauderdale Showroom is a super sleek 1981 Chevrolet Corvette. The Chevrolet Corvette is labeled America's Sports Car ever since its arrival in 1953. While the Chevrolet Corvette is known as the best "bang-for-buck" sports car on the market, and has had a strong fan-base since the first Corvette rolled off the line, this is not your typical Corvette. With a build that shows over $75,000 in receipts, it isn’t for the faint of heart either. The Corvette sports the last body style for the Third Generation Corvette (C3). In 1980, the front fascia was revised on the Corvette and this style was carried on until the end of the third generation Corvettes. This specific Corvette is sporting a stunning burgundy paint that does a great job at showing off this Vette's body lines. The lengthy, curvy front end of this Vette is definitely one of the best attributes of the third generation Corvette's which give it the ultimate sports car stance. The interior is a very clean black vinyl interior that just received a fresh detail. Built by Bill Mitchell Hardcore Racing Engines, this Corvette's new power-plant is a very capable 454 LS6 block bored .060 over to 468 cubic inches.

Mickey Thompson 325/50/15 ET street drag radials are mounted to the rear wheels to help with the traction but still keeping it street legal.
