An original vintage Vette with low mileage and matching numbers... Ummm... Do we have your attention yet??? This stunningly beautiful 1981 Chevrolet Corvette has those attributes and much, much more. It's a motorized masterpiece that is truly the total package, and it comes with plenty of documentation to back up that claim. Factory build sheet, window sticker, maintenance records, owner's manual... It's all there for your inspection. In fact, the odometer reads only 27K, and it is strongly believed to be the actual mileage. Once you see this amazing automobile, you'll be inclined to think so too.
Both the paint and the fiberglass body work are in extremely nice condition. The front bumper was repainted at some point (as is often the need with urethane bumpers from this era), but aside from that, she looks to be all original. The lustrous silver metallic finish is mostly original and literally glistens as it flows across the gently sweeping contours of the Corvette. Any light scratches are so miniscule that they are nearly impossible to see. Of course, T-Tops are among the most popular features on a Vette from this era, and these tops fit perfectly with a nice tight seal and no leaks. The signature hideaway headlights look great and work flawlessly, neatly tucking themselves into the body after each use. In fact, every seam throughout the entire car is punctuated by a smooth, even fit that bespeaks the workmanship that went into the construction of this iconic machine. Seriously, you'd be hard-pressed to find a more beautiful '81 Vette.
You'll continue to be impressed as you slide into the rich, leather driver's seat. The perfect complement for a silver metallic finish would be a black interior, and that's exactly what you'll find here. The seats look and feel as though they may have been reupholstered (although the claim is that they're original); they're as soft and supple as you could ever imagine! The carpet is still nice and dark with all its depth of color. Virtually every power option that was available in 1981 is at your command. Ice cold a/c, power windows and door locks, rear defogger... You name it. It's there. All of the instrumentation works as it should and is easily legible. And the factory AM-FM radio resonates with that retro sound that takes you back to the moment when this car rolled off the showroom.
Open the tilt-forward hood and you'll find that the engine compartment in this Silver Bullet has been immaculately detailed and offers solid evidence as to how well this car has been treated over the past 36 years. The numbers matching 350 cubic inch L81 power plant appears totally original right on down to the factory air cleaner, air duct, and black finned valve covers. All of the stickers under the hood are intact and in near-pristine condition. The motor has been well-maintained, starts easily and runs out exceptionally well. It has been paired with the venerable TH350 three speed automatic transmission to complete one of the most solid drive train combinations ever offered. And as previously mentioned, the motor and transmission numbers do indeed match! How's that for value-added? Look underneath the car and you'll see that, once again, everything is clean, original, and in good condition. Just the way you want it! Performing in unison with the potent power train combination, the much-heralded independent suspension provides the unforgettable driving experience you'll only feel in a Corvette.
In the automobile industry, the terms “all original” and “like new” are sometimes cliché and often overused. But suffice to say that this is clearly one of the nicest and most original 1981 Chevrolet Corvettes you will ever find. And it could be yours... Call today!
