The 1980 Corvette went on a diet losing 250lbs in its roof and doors, along with a new aluminum rear differential housing and intake manifold. Government mandated 85 mph speedometers were now being installed, and the optional spoilers from the previous year were now standard.
A new 305cid was introduced to appease the strict smog emissions in California. Power windows, tilt-telescopic steering and air conditioning were all included in the base price. The Turbo Hydra-Matic received a lock-up torque converter, which engaged at about 30 mph.
