1981 Chevrolet Corvette Base Coupe 2-Door
Here's loaded 1981 Chevrolet Corvette with all the right upgrades, and yet it still keeps the correct originality like the numbers-matching V8. The result is a fresh-looking true classic offered at a terrific price.
The factory-correct white is arguably the best color to have from '81, because it still looks nice and modern today. Of course, it also helps that there has been a solid investment in a professional respray this year. So the clear coat shine really helps to highlight the curvaceous style of the later C3s. These have substantially less chrome than the earlier cars, and so the bright white runs uninterrupted from the shark-like nose to the duck tail spoiler another great reason to invest in a respray. But as a true American classic, it doesn't completely skip the bright work. Now it's just used to highlight performance enhancements like the upgraded 17-inch Ridler wheels.
Inside, the factory-correct blue leather looks great against the exterior white. That's a good thing because the T-tops allow you to open up to the world and let them all see this unbeatable color combo anytime you want. And that's far from the only convenience in this loaded 'Vette. You also have power windows, power locks, tilt wheel, electric rear defogger, an upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo, and provisions for factory air conditioning. For the driver, you get a comfortable leather-wrapped three-spoke steering wheel. Beyond that is the large speedometer and tachometer package in front, and a full gauge package prominently to the side. It's everything you want in a true driver's classic.
Under the hood is the numbers-matching 350 cubic-inch V8. It feels nice to have the factory motor in this 'Vette considering this is the final year for the legendary St. Louis factory. Because of the high level of originality, and the fact that this has averaged only around 1,700 miles annually, it makes this affordable Corvette a nice collector's item, too. Even the three-speed automatic transmission is original to the car. But more than just its history, this Corvette was meant to drive. The four-barrel carburetor feed the torque-filled V8, and out on the road, no American classic from this era can beat the Corvette's fully independent suspension. Plus, there have been some nice investments recently in new bushings, shocks, and mufflers to keep its road manners at their best. Add in power steering, modern low-profile tires, and four-wheel disc brakes, and you have the recipe for the perfect all-around driving classic.
You're looking at the vintage C3 that comes with a great factory-correct appearance, a good history, and all the right features. So at a price like this, you know you need to hurry to grab this deal. Call now!
