Chevrolet Corvette 1980 Description

With a numbers-matching L82, this nicely restored 1980 Chevrolet Corvette is a beautiful thing. But when this A/C, T-top American icon is also so affordable, the thought of taking it home is irresistible. A red Corvette is an all-American hero. So if you're going to drive a legend, you want it to look as good as it does here. The 1980 cars had the new front fascia with even more body-colored elements. Plus, these had the sporty bodykit that included the front air dam, fender flairs, and ducktail spoiler. So a modern clearcoat shine is exactly what a nicely restored later C3 like this deserves to highlight all its sexy curves. Plus, the dark tinted glass T-tops combine with the dark A-pillars and side scoops for a bit of a sinister side. And while it looks sleek and modern in its chrome-free body, a proper American muscle machine never completely skips out on the brightwork. It's just saved for the optional 15-inch factory aluminum wheels.While the exterior looks great, it's the interior that seals the deal. This was converted to a white leather that radiates from all the right investment. But, why you really love this car is because when you take the T-tops out the combination of the white leather against the red exterior is a pure upper-class sports car appearance. And thanks to cold-blowing air conditioning, you can feel free to show this off all year long. In fact, more than just look premium, you'll feel just how luxurious a sports car can be from the moment you slip behind the wheel. It's loaded with features like power windows, cruise control, tilt/telescope wheel, electric rear defogger, and an upgrade to a modern AM/FM/CD stereo. For the driver, you get a comfortable leather-wrapped three-spoke steering wheel. Beyond that is the large speedometer and tachometer package in front, and a full gauge package prominently to the side. Dual snorkels on the bright air cleaner are a telltale sign that this is an L-82, and best of all, it's the original motor to the car. The great part about this optional V8 was that it produced 21% more power than the standard Corvette engine of the day, and in 1980 the C3 was at least 5% lighter than the previous year. That gives it a superior power-to-weight ratio compared to many others out there. Plus, the upgraded Mallory ignition adds some nice performance, too. A well-maintained and restored car like this not only looks great in the engine bay, but also it has been given all the right care to fire up easily so you can take it out on a whim. This coupe was truly meant to be driven. The fully-independent sports suspension and four-wheel disc brakes give it the kind of moves that feel like a modern sports car. Plus, the TH350 three-speed automatic transmission and power steering are great any time driving features.Complete with maintenance records, and work performed since the restoration was completed around 1,000 miles ago, you can really see that this is a cut-above Corvette offered at a very affordable price. This kind of value never stays available for long. Call now!!
