A numbers-matching 1981 Chevrolet Corvette is always an appealing classic. So when you also find one that has a ton of originality, loaded with great features (including A/C), and is priced right, well then you know you need to pay attention.
The factory-correct Autumn Red Metallic is a terrific color to have on your C3 Corvette. Only available in 1981, this example shows all signs of originality on the majority of the body, which already gives this one an instant appeal. Surviving nearly four decades in this condition is a big indicator that this is a properly respected classic. And these later C3s really help you appreciate good paint because the modern chrome-free body looks sleek as the color runs uninterrupted from the shark-like nose to the integrated rear spoiler. And the tinted windows coordinate with the dark red finish to give this one a particularly aggressive appearance. But as a true American classic, it doesn't completely skip the brightwork. Now it's just used to highlight the polished alloy wheels that were a nice option in '81.
Inside there's more great deep red when you open the door. As you sit down, you can power adjust the plush bucket seat to your ideal driving position. This means the perfect grip to the three-spoke sports steering wheel, and a terrific view of the large speedo and tach directly in front of you. And while this is a true driver's machine, there are also plenty of comfortable features for you and your passenger. This includes power windows, power locks, and provisions for cruise control. You even have nice modern upgrades like cup holders and an AM/FM/CD stereo w/aux input. And because the factory air conditioning is still blowing nice and cold, you'll happily take out the T-tops well into the summer season.
Under the hood is the numbers-matching 350 cubic-inch V8. This is not only great for collectors, but because it has been rebuilt, it helps make sure this vintage 'Vette is a true driver. It inhales deeply through a four-barrel carburetor, and the V8 exhales with proper authority out of the dual exhaust. Plus, the fully independent suspension is part of the hallmark that makes these such great driving classics. Add in features like the three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and four-wheel disc brakes, and you have make for the perfect all-around vintage cruiser.
Comfortable, complete, and quite unique this is an interesting and affordable 'Vette. So for those who like distinction, don't miss this one. Call today!!!
