Moving into the production of their 1981 Corvette, Chevrolet made some great adjustments to both the drivability and design and produced just over 40,000 models for the public. With a fiberglass reinforced mono leaf rear spring added to the automatic transmission models, an added auxiliary electric cooling fan behind the radiator for better engine cooling, a power driver seat and an improved anti-theft system which assisted with eliminating the ignition issues of times past, this was one of the best example to come out of the factory for the C3 yet. Produced between two factories in Bowling Green, KY and St. Louis, MO, this was the only model year to be built in two factories simultaneously.
GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this well-kept and strong running example of the 1981 Chevrolet Corvette for your consideration. This car is beautiful in every aspect and stands tall above the rest. The owner has had it in his care for the last 14 years. The owner claims that the odometer has rolled over just once since new. The Corvette was sold new Gwatney Chevrolet in Jacksonville AR. Along with the sale comes with a copy of the built sheet and service manuals, and owner's manual. The car was restored in 2004 and remains in excellent condition. When the engine was rebuilt it was spruced up with new flat top pistons, a mild comp cam and lifters, and the heads were ported. The engine was balanced. It retains its original exhaust manifolds and they were ceramic coated. It was given a high-torque starter. The vette has true dual exhaust with turbo mufflers. It also has a DeWitt Aluminum radiator.
Options include power windows, remote mirrors, power brakes, tilt and telescopic steering wheel, chrome air cleaner, cruise control, alloy wheels and more. The car remains numbers matching. The rebuilt transmission was given a shift kit with a 2500 RPM stall converter. The chassis was given a fiberglass rear spring, steeroids rack and pinion steering, stainless steel calipers, all new u-joints, balanced drive shaft, rebuilt rear differential with 3.07 gears, rebuilt rear trailing arms with wheel bearings, upgraded rear strut rods and all suspension bushings, rebuilt front suspension with new MOOG control arm bushings and ball joints, KYB gas shocks and new fuel tank. This car was just given a 4 wheel alignment. This car is ready for the road and one of the finest.
