 Vehicle Description
There cant be many car guys who havent lusted for a red Corvette at some point in their lives. This great-looking 1980 example is a fantastic way to break into the Corvette hobby for not a lot of money, and youll probably discover that its a lot of high-performance fun for your dollar.

You simply cant go wrong with bright red on your fantastic plastic. This one was refinished a few years ago and used lightly since, so the finish sparkles and the shine is outstanding. The color is exactly right, too, not too orange like a lot of red Corvettes, and it still shows well yet can be enjoyed without having to worry about rain or bugs on the finish. By 1980, build quality had improved by leaps and bounds, so youll find tight gaps, neat-fitting bumper caps, and T-tops that seal up well. With an update in 1978, the fastback profile with aggressive front and rear spoilers is as good as the C3 got, and is instantly recognizable today. The only notable deviations from stock are some subtle pinstripes around the front fender gills and blacked-out taillight lenses with Corvette emblems in their centers that light up when you hit the brakes. If you prefer a stock look, they just snap out so no worries about keeping it original.

The matching leather interior is pure 1980s cool, but the red looks more elegant and upscale than, say, the silver space capsule look of the pace cars. With a comfortable look thats inviting, its hard to resist sliding into those deep buckets and looking out over the long, dramatic hood. The drivers seat shows wear thats commensurate with the cars age and mileage, while the rest of the interior is very well preserved with only minimal signs of use. Corvettes were loaded with standard equipment in 1980, including A/C, power windows, power locks, tilt wheel, and a complete array of gauges that are highly visible and easy to read. A newer AM/FM/CD stereo head unit has been fitted to the center stack, and the workmanship is excellent, not to mention the sound.

The L48 engine coupled to an automatic transmission was a great performer in 1980, and even today the rumble of the exhaust and torque will get your heart racing on the street. It starts quickly and idles easily, and there are few engines more reliable than a 350 Chevy topped by a 4-barrel carb. Highly original, the engine bay is clean and well-maintained, and chrome items like the air cleaner lid and valve covers remain bright. Underneath, its extremely clean with a fresh exhaust system that sounds awesome. The original slotted alloy wheels have been polished and given red inserts, and wear fat 225/70/15 Goodyear Eagle radials.

This car represents a great opportunity to get into the Corvette hobby at an awesome price. Call today!
