This extremely clean 1981 Chevrolet Corvette is for sale in our Louisville KY showroom. 1981 was a year of first for the Corvette. Not only was this the first year for Corvettes to be produced at two factories but it was also the first year for the now historic Bowling Green plant. The STL plant cars were only available in solid colors while the new revolutionary Bowling Green plant had the capability to paint them two tone, a rather extravagant option for a production car in 1981. With the odometer showing a mere 46235 actual miles, this beauty has lived a pampered life. The bright red metallic paint brings out the lines of the 81 nicely. Under that long hood is the classic small block Chevy that came in the car backed by the original Turbo 350 Hydramatic transmission. The T-tops are in excellent condition and have the tinted look which makes the red paint pop even more. Take them off and the wind will be blowing through hair in no time. With the black leather seats looking as new as the paint this Corvette has everything you would look for in a classic. The polished wheels are in excellent condition and are something that you just don’t see any more. With a clean CARFAX this is one C3 that you don't have to worry about if those miles are original or not. Options on this 1981 Chevrolet Corvette include; AC, AM/FM/8-track player, Glass T tops, Cruise, Power Brakes, Power Steering, Power Windows, Power Locks, Power Seats, Telescopic/ Tilt Wheel, Leather Interior, Polished Aluminum Wheels Wrapped with Radial Tires that have Raised Lettering. This 1981 Chevrolet Corvette can be seen, including an HD video, at www.gatewayclassiccars.com, call at 812-294-1555 or email Louisville@gatewayclassiccars.com for more information.

1980 Chevrolet Corvette


Engine: 454 CID V8
Transmission: TH-350 Automatic
Mileage: 50546 ( undocumented )

For sale in our St. Louis Showroom is a metallic black 1980 Chevrolet Corvette. This hot rod Corvette is no longer powered by the stock 350, in its place is a massive 454 CID Big Block V8 engine. The 454 has been bored .060 over and features an Eagle crank and rods, SRP pistons, a hydraulic cam, HRS aluminum heads, double roller timing chain, a Quick Fuel carburetor, aluminum/alloy valve covers and intake, and a Moroso oil pan. An aluminum radiator helps keep this monster running cool on hot summer days. Headers flow from the HRS heads to the full exhaust with the option of electric cutouts for a truly jaw rattling sound. A TH-350 automatic transmission, with a custom gated shifter, transfers the power to the pavement. The metallic black exterior paint shines beautifully and provides a menacing look to this hot rod Corvette. The black leather interior features a custom console that quickly removes for easy access if need be. New carpet and door panels help make this interior new again as well. The odometer reads 50,546, although the actual mileage is unknown, just over 300 miles have been put on the car since the build was complete. Options for this 1980 Chevrolet Corvette include: Leather Interior, Seat Belts, T-Tops, Power Windows, Tilt/Telescopic Wheel, Radial tires, and Aluminum/Alloy Wheels. The late C3 Corvette is not known to be a high horsepower car, so when you pull up to the stop light in this Big Block powered 80’ Corvette you are a bit of a sleeper.

1982 Chevrolet Corvette


Engine: 5.7L V8 F OHV
Transmission: 3 Speed Automatic
Mileage: 28433 ( actual )

Gateway Classic Cars of Philadelphia welcomes you to check out this fantastic Black with Red Leather interior 1982 Corvette. This Corvette has 28,400 original miles. For 1982, the 5.7 liter (350 CID) Cross-Fire Fuel Injection V8 and an automatic were your only options available from Chevy. Chevrolet would give this engine the RPO code of L83. It seemed to make sense since from 1975 until 1980 the L82 4-bbl 350 CID V8 which was rated at between 205 to 230 horsepower was Corvette’s high-performance motor option.. You can imagine the heartache this must have caused for most Corvette fans. They always had a manual available except for the early first generation Corvette which had a mandatory 2-speed Powerglide automatic transmission. These were scary times for performance enthusiasts to be sure. The future was uncertain. With emissions and fuel economy forcing Detroit to put the lid on performance cars in general. No one had any idea of the performance cars that would l produce years later. This Corvette is equipped nicely with power windows, power locks, cruise control, tilt wheel and t tops. It also has an AM FM stereo, radial tires and AC. To view this 1982 Corvette. in greater detail, including HD pictures and an HD video, visit www.GatewayClassicCars.com or our Philadelphia showroom located in West Deptford, NJ.

For sale in our Detroit showroom is a 1980 Chevrolet Corvette. One of the last years of the C3 Corvette, which were styled after the Mako Shark II concept car, the 1980 model had a redesigned exterior that included reshaped front and rear bumpers that were more aerodynamic, which reduced drag and increased airflow. 1980 was also the last year that Corvettes were made in St. Louis, before production was moved the Bowling Green plant in mid-1981. Under the hood is a very potent L48 350 cubic-inch V8 that produces roughly 200 horsepower, paired with an automatic transmission. The entire drivetrain only has just under 76,000 original miles on it. The exterior is painted a bright shade of Yellow that really shines in the sunlight, and the Black leather bucket seats complete the classic look! With newer shocks and other suspension parts, this Vette rides smooth, and if you pop the t-tops out on cool day, every minute behind the wheel will be an exhilarating and fun experience! Options on this car include: A/C, AM/FM radio with CD player, t-tops, cruise control, power brakes, power steering, power locks, power windows, tilt/telescopic wheel, seat belts, leather interior, and raised white-letter radial tires wrapped around aluminum/alloy wheels.

Riding on a 115-inch wheelbase, the Chevelle was based on a new A platform design, and became American's second best-selling car of its time. The 1972 Chevelles featured single-unit parking/side marker lights on their front fenders, outside of a revised twin-bar grille. Powered by a smooth running 454 CID and TH 350, this 1972 Chevrolet Chevelle is a great classic to invest in as something to show off, as well as to use as your frequent driver. If someone pulls up next to your and revs up their engine to taunt you into a drag race, just lock in your seat-belt, put out your cigarette, rev your 454 back at them, and take your time driving home, because speed thrills, but kills.
