1981 Chevrolet Corvette -- Additional Info:

Sold through Weil-Koenig Chevrolet of Amherst New York this Chevy spent the first 22 years of its life in the hands of one loving owner. Roughly 40K miles later the car was passed to its second owner an Oregon native who kept it running clean and strong for close to a decade. Circa 2012 this Chevy's third owner a New Jersey resident with a penchant for collectable Corvettes polished the car's wheels and upgraded its radio. But unfortunately the collector had to downsize and the Corvette met its... fourth owner that same year. In addition to tinting the car's windows and detailing its interior that fourth and present owner commissioned Rock Hill South Carolina's Corvettes Unlimited to repaint this Chevy's bumpers. And today one close look at our high-resolution photos reveals a highly original gem that except for a few blends features largely original paintwork. Tilt this Corvette's sculpted hood and you'll find 350 cubic inches of original L-81 V8 that twists stout 8.2 to 1 compression into 190 horsepower and 280 lb./ft. of everyday torque. Behind that VIN-stamped mill a lightweight Borg Warner Super T10 4-speed an original unit that's branded with a correct partial VIN spins a lightweight Dana 44 differential. That driveline hangs in a fully independent suspension which combines correct power steering with correct power disc brakes. And everything rolls on polished alloy wheels which spin 225/70R15 BF Goodrich Radial T/As around correct cross-flag center caps. With its detailed history and original drivetrain this Corvette is the kind of old school muscle that can make any enthusiast happy. And for our asking price it's one heck of a deal!
