1981 Chevrolet Corvette Base Coupe 2-Door Additional Info:

An American icon in factory-correct colors and loaded with great features like ice-cold air conditioning and an enhanced V8. This 1981 Chevrolet Corvette is already an attractive classic, and that's before you checked out the exceptionally affordable price.There's a certain sophistication about this Corvette. The factory-correct Charcoal Gray is not as boisterous as some other hues, and it works particularly well on a later C3 like this with the body-colored bumpers. But don't let its composed nature let you think it's not ready to show off. It just quietly lets you appreciate the curves of one of the most angular Corvettes in history. This is further highlighted by the metallic luster in the paint and the pinstriping on the fenders. And when it comes to brightwork, the optional aluminum wheels and bright exhaust tips are assurances that this 'Vette can get loud whenever it wants.Inside, the black bucket seats weigh less than earlier C3s, and they fold flush with the rear trunk area for better cargo functionality. Like any good Corvette of this era, it comes loaded with power locks, tilt wheel, electric rear defogger, and power windows. There's even an upgrade to an AM/FM/CD stereo with auxiliary hook up so you can play the most modern tunes. For the driver, there's a three-spoke sports steering wheel. Beyond that is the large speedometer and tachometer package in front and a full gauge panel prominently to the side. You can show this fantastic interior to the world as you go cruising around with the T-tops off. There's even ice-cold air conditioning running modern R134a, so you can stay open to the world all summer long.Take a good look at the engine bay, because beneath a stock-like appearance lies some nice performance upgrades. So while having a 350 cubic-inch crate V8 is already desirable, this one goes even further by adding a Weber four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock intake, and headers. That means this motor breathes in deeper and exhales with more authority from the dual exhaust. And the fully independent sports suspension and four-wheel disc brakes mean you can have maximum fun on the roads with the enhanced V8. But more than just good for performance, this one can also be a nice car for the long trips. That's thanks to features like the three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and cruise control.Great presentation, extra rumble from the V8, and an affordable buy the only way this classic will disappoint you is if you're too late to grab it.
