1980 Chevrolet Corvette L48 Additional Info:

There is no more driven crowd of survivor car enthusiasts than Corvette fans, and this is one that will surely impress them. This 1980 Chevrolet Corvette has mostly original paint, and an original interior. So this was already an attractive late-C3 even before you checked out the price.
This is what a collector-grade late C3 is all about. The factory Frost Beige paint was only available for a few years, and it represents the era perfectly. It still looks quite nice today with the kind of shine and luster that can only come from years of garage-kept care. We do know that the hood was replaced and painted by the experts at Hendrick Chevrolet. It was done so well that it's up to you to tell other Corvette fans about this. In fact, the whole car looks great with nicely fitting panels, and brown pinstriping that highlights every one of the C3's iconic curves. This was also a loaded example, and you can see it on everything from the aluminum wheels to the mounting points for the T-top panel carrier.
Averaging less than 1,900 miles annually gives you an original interior that still looks quite attractive. After all, low mileage means little seat time. The Doeskin leather seats weigh less than in earlier C3s, and they fold flush with the rear trunk area for better cargo functionality. The loaded attitude continues inside with the addition of a premium wood appearance throughout the interior. Plus, you get power windows, power locks, tilt/telescope wheel, and an upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo. For the driver, there's a comfortable leather-wrapped three-spoke steering wheel. Beyond that is the large speedo/tach package in front and a full gauge cluster prominently to the side. And when you want to show the world that your interior is as fantastically cream-colored as the exterior, you can go cruising around with the glass T-tops off. the air conditioning was converted to modern R134a, you can do this all summer long without breaking a sweat.
The engine bay looks terrific with the addition of plenty of shine on the air topper, alternator, shrouds, and valve covers. Plus, this is an L48 350 cubic-inch V8. This motor V8 gave plenty of that head-snapping torque that these small blocks are famous for delivering. More than just power, these Corvettes are the perfect grand touring classic. The fully-independent sports suspension and four-wheel disc brakes are great on the backroads. Plus, the three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and cruise control are perfect for the long haul.
Complete with maintenance records, you get a lot of originality, great features, and an overall quality classic. It's amazing that all of this is available right now for such an affordable price. Call now!
