Gateway Classic Cars of Tampa is proud to offer this sharp 1981 Chevrolet Corvette. This car still has its numbers matching 350 V8 and 4 speed automatic transmission with only 25k actual miles.

This Corvette is claimed to be a 1 owner car and was purchased new in Port Charlotte, Florida. It was repainted Beige and has nice Camel leather interior. The overall condition of this car is show quality and has been maintained to stay pristine. New tires, brake calipers and master cylinder have been replaced. This car also has had the A/C compressor changed but does come with the original upon request. In this Corvette, removing the T-tops and cruising with fresh air blowing through your hair is the most popular way to cruise.

In 1981, there was only one powerplant available, a 350 cu in (5.7 L) engine that, like the L-48 base engine the previous year, produced the 190 hp, but was now designated the L81. The motor was certified in all states and available with manual or automatic transmissions. Chrome air cleaner lids and cast magnesium valve covers dressed up all engines. The stainless steel exhaust manifolds and computer control system introduced on the 305 cu in (5.0 L) California engines the previous year were now standard, as was an auxiliary electric engine cooling fan. This, the last C3 available with a manual transmission, so equipped, had a published 0-60 mph in 8.1 seconds. This model year was the first corvette to use a fiberglass rear leaf spring, now a Corvette trademark. The spring saved thirty-six pounds, but was limited to base suspensions with automatic transmission. When equipped with Delco's brand new optional ETR (Electronically Tuned Receiver) radio with a digital clock, the quartz analog instrument panel clock was replaced with an oil temperature gauge. The cast aluminum wheels, optional since ’76, were now ordered on 90 percent of the cars at a cost of $428. New options included a power adjustable driver’s seat and power remote outside mirrors. Options on this ’81 include;A/C, AM/FM radio, T-Tops, cruise control, power windows, tilt wheel, posi traction, rally wheels, and even leather interior. Do not let this C3 pass you by.
