1980 Chevrolet Corvette L82

Gateway Classic Cars of Kansas City would like to introduce to you a wonderful Corvette and the only American sports car you could buy back in the day...a beautiful dark blue, C3, 1980 Chevrolet Corvette!

At the time, Corvette's chief engineer Dave McLellan (who succeeded Zora in 1975) and his team were very busy back then. With a slim budget, they had to design, engineer, and develop the all-new, fourth-generation Vette, as well as help bring an all-new Corvette assembly plant on line. Plus, for the last years of the C3 there were the ever-tighter emissions controls and Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) rules that had to be factored in. While Corvette sold in low numbers compared to its steel-bodied Chevy counterparts, it had to pull its weight and improve. Although the '79 Corvette hit an all-time high sales mark, its styling was getting stale, and the 18-year-old chassis that was once revolutionary was now archaic. Plus, the Corvette Team had to keep America's Only True Sports Car exciting and fresh. A real fun job, huh?

McLellan's team refreshed the 1980 Corvette on a shoestring. The most obvious visual differences were the new front and rear bumper covers, with an integrated air dam in the front and a rear spoiler with an aerodynamic Kamm-back design. The hood profile was lower and the hood, doors, and lift-out roof panels were made of thinner and lighter material. Also, the '80 Vette got a 250-pound weight reduction from the '79 model thanks to the lighter-weight body panels, along with a new aluminum rear differential, aluminum front frame crossmember, and the L82's aluminum intake manifold replacing the standard L48 cast-iron one.

Our shiny, dark blue exterior C3 beauty features a very nice matching blue leather interior. The horses under the hood turn ferocious when the loud pedal is stomped-on thanks to a sweet sounding 350ci, L-82, V-8 engine backed by a smooth shifting three speed automatic transmission. And, if that doesn't make you see stars, remove the glass top and look toward the heavens! Yes, this Vette is packed with options! Options galore, like every body's favorite - air conditioning! Plus, am/fm stereo complete with amplifier and bass woofers, CD player, cruise control, power brakes, power steering, tilt wheel, poi-traction and much more!

These C3 bodys are hot sellers in today's market and you will need to step-on-it to make her yours! You can begin by calling your friends at Gateway Classic Cars in Kansas City. We are very witty and somewhat knowledgeable about classic cars. Our number is (913) 815-1340. You can reach us Monday thru Saturday, 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. cst.
