5.7 Liter V8
This 1981 Chevrolet Corvette is a great opportunity. It\'s a loaded coupe with desirable features like T-tops and V8 power, and the overall style shows off a fun and easy cruiser. Plus, it\'s priced so that you can add more features for a truly personal classic car experience. Red Corvettes always look a bit sportier than the rest. And these later C3s have terrific features like the color-matched front end and full-width rear spoiler to amplify this sleek sports car look. This one even plays into the features for a nice coordinated contrast in black. The rockers, fender vents, and tinted glass (including the T-tops) have a touch of dark side style. The total package has a cruiser kind of appearance. What that means is a finish that won\'t make you nervous to have out on the streets, and the clean and bright style lets you drive it with pride. Plus, good body lines and bright alloys give it a nice fundamental appearance. Tan interiors look good on red cars and give them an added feeling of sophistication. That feels right on a loaded coupe like this. It has factory features like power windows, power locks, a tilt/telescopic steering column, and T-tops. And stock the AM/FM 8-track stereo and air conditioning still have the components in place if you want to have them restored. Plus, as a true Corvette, its largest attraction is a true driver\'s car. You sit down in the contoured bucket seats, grab the three-spoke steering wheel, and gaze through to the large speedo and tach. And of course, we love how these C3s have a very driver-oriented setup with the auxiliary readout mounted front and center in the dash. Under the hood is the 350 cubic-inch V8 with a four-barrel carburetor on top. We love a proper small block Corvette because these hardy powerhouses have plenty of worthwhile upgrades to fit any budget. There is room for investment and improvement with the motor, and if you\'ve worked with Chevy small blocks before, you know the potential is nearly limitless. But from day one you have a runner that knows how to live up to the classic Corvette feeling. It\'s a true performer with a fully independent suspension and four-wheel power disc brakes. And it also can settle into a more everyday feeling with features like the three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and cruise control. The value price lets you decide to restore the air conditioning, upgrade to a modern radio, add brightness to the finish, or some other personalization. But no matter what your plans are, this is an attractive coupe that only needs the drive home to put the first smile on your face. Call today!!!
