1980 Chevrolet Corvette How many cars can you name at a single glance? That should tell you something about the continuing uniqueness of the Corvette. It could very well be the most recognizable car on the road today. It has a host of imitators. But none of them strike your eye with such overbearing authority. Because Corvette remains what they can only aspire to be... a legend. Still the only true American sports car. Prior to going out on a big night, a woman likes to go all out sometimes on the presentation, and part of that mystique is wearing a silver cocktail dress. Silver signifies a sexuality, an allure, and power. For consignment, a night out for this version of the 1980 C3 Corvette bathed in silver. A 350ci L48 V8 and more contrasting black leather inside. It\'s all dressed up and awaiting your turn of her key which will provide you with excitement! ( I told you the silver would work!). Lay into the throttle and let\'s go! ***Due to modifications of the emissions control devices installed by the manufacturer, please check your local, state, and federal laws to determine if this vehicle is applicable for use on public highways in your area.*** Exterior For 1980 after several years of progressively gaining weight, this year it went on a diet and has lost some weight. A thinner hood and outer doors, lower density roof panels, and making use of aluminum for the differential housing and crossmember help with this effort. Some front and back bumper caps have been added this year, (removed on this car), and this redesign decreased the overall drag coefficient. We can see the use of crossed flag badges: a sexy curved silver rocker fairing that follows the coke bottle design on either side, a T top with silver fiberglass removable panels. The body fiberglass is in overall good condition. All glass, including the greenhouse rear window, which forms itself nearly to the rear spoiler has a fairly substantial storage area underneath, and is in otherwise good condition. The Corvette cove in the front fender remains, round headlights survive another year, and now shiny 15 inch deep dish Chevrolet wheels are on all 4 corners. All bathed in a nice coating of silver. A few minor scratches mostly contained to the bottom end where a previous battle with a curb may have been fought and lost! Honey!!! I\'m ready to go! Interior In wonderful 1980\'s Michelin Man style, the black leather overstuffed padded bolster seats with deep inserts and high backs provide the seating for this A ticket ride. These are floating in a sea of clean black carpeting which is all nice and clean. A black molded vinyl dash can be seen upfront, and while the raked angle remains for the dash, analog gauges are now behind a flat piece of clear plastic with some mid point warning lights stacked next to these gauges. These all float within a black slightly textured panel behind the plastic. Fronting these instruments is a factory steering wheel. In the center the cluster of 5 gauges remains also within the black paneling, and just below is an aftermarket stereo neatly inserted which sports AM/FM/Single CD capabilities. Climate control wheels of the past are now sliders and on the center of the console is a ball topped rebuilt Corvette shifter. All this within more black plastic in good condition. Side door panels are nicely preserved, as is the rear carpeted storage area under the green house glass. This area shows some fading mostly near the seat back area and the hidden storage panel doors. May I hold the door for you?! Drivetrain With all this silver let\'s consider the red line, that being of the tachometer and to get there, we need to look under the hood where there is a numbers matching 350ci V8 L48 which is capable of screaming acceleration. A single Edelbrock 4 barrel carburetor is atop and black matte valve covers and a chromed dish style air cleaner cover can be seen. There is a numbers matching 4 speed manual T10 transmissio
