The Model – The new C3 Corvette of 1968 ushered in a complete new restyling of the GM’s signature sports car. The overall design proved to be the Corvette’s longest-running style. The C3 underwent numerous minor revisions including the 1980 facelift that added integrated front and rear spoilers into the bodywork. For 1981 the model lineup simplified to offer only the L-81 350 cid V-8 engine for all markets. The overall specification for all cars increased with air conditioning, tilt/telescoping steering column, sports mirrors and power windows that became standard on all Corvettes.
The Car –This 1981 Corvette is presented in unmolested original condition with 71,348 actual miles. The silver paint is original and still shows well overall with some sun blemishing reflecting the careful limited use over the past 25 years. This car features its patinated original silver leather interior and comes with the desirable cast aluminum wheels. This car is the attractive T-Top model and still carries its top bags. The engine bay also reflects the low mileage and conservation this sporting classic has enjoyed. The chrome air cleaner and cast magnesium valve covers still display well. This low-mileage C3 is an honest driver-condition car ready to enjoy now or take to the next level.
