1981 Corvette

Code correct Beige exterior, code correct Camel cloth interior, glass t-tops. Numbers matching 190hp 350ci engine, automatic transmission, posi rear-end. This is as nice as they get for a 1981 Corvette! This car, which is believed to have 57,758 original miles based on condition and previous owner's statement, is in top condition with a clean Carfax, and everything works! This car drives so tight that you'd think Reagan was still president. Assembled at the Bowling Green plant in July 1981, this is one of the very last carbureted Corvettes ever built. The paint on this 1981 Corvette is excellent, with very few flaws, if any, and a brilliant shine. Glass t-tops are excellent and more than likely originals as well, judging by their May 1981 date code. Original storage bags are included. One of the most intriguing features of this Corvette is its V54 Roof Panel Carrier option. Although 9,050 cars were equipped with this option while it was available from 1980-82, very, very few of these kits survive, particularly when they are as complete as this one. This kit includes the necessary straps, mounts, clamps, installation instructions, and even the original vinyl storage bag for the unit. The only thing keeping this kit from being functional is a broken mounting point at the driver's rear deck. Exterior chrome door handles are in very good condition, with strong return springs and few finish flaws to speak of. Taillights are in excellent condition with no cracking of any type, which is good news since this style of taillight is not currently being reproduced. Original weatherstripping is still soft and in good condition. Currently mounted on this car is a set of rally wheels, which are in very good condition with excellent condition center caps and trim rings. These wheels wear a set of recent raised white letter radial tires showing nearly full tread. The original slotted aluminum wheels, which have been kept in storage, will be included with this car as well. The interior of this 1981 Corvette is nearly factory fresh, with minimal fading on the rare cloth seats. Although these seats are overall very nice, there is one small tear on the side of the lower driver's cushion. Steering wheel is in very good original condition with a tight leather rim, and the gauges show minimal fading and no clouding. Center console is in good original condition with no splits or other issues, and the original carpet looks very good as well for its age with no apparent fading or excessive wear. Door panels are in very good condition also. The original AM/FM stereo cassette is still in place, and now powers an extra set of Pioneer speakers, located in the front kick panels. Dash pad is in very good original condition with no cracks and minimal warping. The engine compartment in this 1981 Corvette is extremely original and correct. The engine itself shows a casting date of July 8, 1981, and still has its original intake manifold and carburetor. Exhaust manifolds show complete factory emissions equipment, and are likely to be the originals as well. Air pump, ignition shielding, and a/c compressor are all intact and functioning, and the air conditioning blows ice cold with correct R12 refrigerant and no known issues. The frame on this car is nice, clean, and rust-free, as is to be expected since Carfax has documented this car to have been in Georgia at least since its earliest record, which is 1992. In summary, this is one of the most highly optioned, best driving, original, correct, and complete 1981 Corvettes in existence -- don't let it pass you by! Factory features include slotted aluminum wheels, glass t-tops, roof panel carrier, power driver's seat, electric sport mirrors, Delco ETR stereo cassette, power windows, power locks, rear defrost, air conditioning, cruise control, power antenna, power steering, power brakes, cargo shade.
