Description:

You might glance at this 1981 Corvette and figure that it''s way too nice to be an 81 Vette. The next thing you need to know is that it shows just 38,532 original miles, and has been so meticulously maintained that even the A/C still blows cold. That''s right, the two-tone colors that were all the rage in the early ''80s included the code 33/38 Silver over Dark Blue combination shown here. It''s even on the body tag. It''s so rare that most sources don''t even know how many were built. I suppose that''s why it has enjoyed such an easy life and why its previous owners have maintained it to such a high level. It has all the styling upgrades that were added a few years earlier, but the two-tone paint seems to emphasize the long, low-wide stance particularly well. It also doesn''t tolerate misaligned panels as well as the solid colors, so you''ll be pleasantly surprised by how well this one fits together. There are minimal signs of use, but certainly nothing requiring attention-just keep it clean and shiny and enter it in some survivor-class judging. The blue leather interior is excellent condition and with just enough character to make it inviting. The seats are still comfortable and supportive, and the leather is supple without splits or tears, so you can enjoy without a second thought. As I said, the A/C is nice and cold thanks to an R134a refrigerant upgrade and in 1981 the flagship Corvette included just about every power accessory you could want, including power windows and locks, cruise control, a power driver''s seat, and a tilt/telescope column with a leather-wrapped wheel. The T-tops seal up well and include locks and their own storage bags that fit under the hatch. That may even be the original AM/FM/cassette stereo still in the dash, a cutting-edge piece of entertainment equipment three decades ago (has it been that long already?). The carpets aren''t faded, even in the rear hatch area, so it''s pretty clear that this car has always been protected from the elements by conscientious owners. There were no optional engines in 1981, all Corvettes got a torquey L81 small block that was rated at 190 horsepower. A 4-barrel carb keeps it reliable and it''s reassuring to know that this 350 is only just now getting broken in, despite three decades of use. It starts quickly and easily, runs beautifully, and has a fantastic V8 exhaust note that makes every drive an exciting one. It''s almost all original under the hood, save for an upgraded coil and routine maintenance items, which is always a good sign on easily-modified high-performance cars. It''s backed by a 3-speed automatic transmission with a lockup torque converter for improved efficiency and it''s quite likely that''s the original exhaust system hanging under there. Original chassis don''t come much cleaner than this, and even the bright silver alloys show zero curb rash and wear 225/70/15 BFGoodrich T/A radials that fit right. For the Corvette fan who cherishes originality and the unusual, this C3 has a lot to offer that''s beyond the run-of-the-mill ''Vette. Call today! This vehicle is located in our Dallas/Fort Worth showroom. For more information, please call (817) 764-8000 or toll free (855) 877-2707.
