 Vehicle Description
Stop wasting your time with C3 Corvette projects and tired cars with needs! This 1981 Corvette coupe is ready to go today and features a 4-speed, cold A/C, and a great color combination, all for less than youd expect. Fast fun is still affordable!





Given what was going on in fashion at the dawn of the 80s, this code 10 White Corvette looks pretty timeless and always will. The white paint gives it a dignified look, not all brazen like bright red and not frumpy like brown, it recalls the original 53, which wore a similar hue. The dramatic curves and sweeps of the Coke-bottle shape are undiminished by the white paint, and its a good thing this car has such good panel alignment, because theres no place for shoddy workmanship to hide on a white car. Both the nose and tail are in great condition with minimal signs of use, thanks to a complete paint job in May 2013. Other details are just as nice, including the chin spoiler which hasnt been abused by steep driveway aprons and replacement emblems on the nose and tail. The glass, including the fastback hatch that also adds storage capacity, is in fine condition and with lift-off T-tops, the Corvette lineup still offered open-air motoring and a full-throttle V8 soundtrack to match.





The Medium Red interior provides a classic look that will still look awesome in another 30 years. Thanks to careful ownership, the leather seats are in good condition with no major rips, splits, or tears, and only minor stretching on the drivers lower cushion. Yes, theres a lot of red in there, but somehow the Corvette pulls it off, combining the red leather steering wheel with black spokes and a matching dash that foregoes the fake wood for a more basic look. The instruments are still vividly marked behind clear lenses and yes, thats a real-deal 4-speed manual shifter in the center console, so brush up on your clutch work. A Kenwood AM/FM/CD stereo is the only notable alteration from stock, and were pleased to see that the original A/C system has been recently sealed and refilled with correct R12 freon, so its working as intended. Power windows and locks, a tilt/telescope steering column, and rear defrost make this a well-equipped Vette thats easy to live with.





The original, numbers-matching 350 cubic inch V8 still lives under the hood. There were no optional engines in 1981, but thanks to an Edelbrock 4-barrel carburetor, this one makes plenty of power to be entertaining on the road. A chrome air cleaner with reproduction decal, finned valve covers, and a very clean look overall mean that this Corvette has been loved all its life and it runs superbly. A new dual exhaust system was recently installed, replacing the restrictive original setup and giving it a fantastic exhaust note. Its quite clean underneath with no other modifications aside from the exhaust system, and it shows the results of clean living someplace away from the rigors of winter weather. Newer BFGoodrich T/A radials have been fitted to the stock aluminum wheels, which are in fantastic shape.





Never before has Corvette fun been this affordable. At this price, you can afford to skip the projects and just get to the fun of driving. Call today!
