Sleek, loaded, and quite correct - right down to its numbers-matching V8. This 1981 Chevrolet Corvette is a mix of vintage style and good quality that makes for one of the best all-around affordable classics you can get your hands on right now.

The Charcoal Metallic paint is a color with modern appeal, and so some people may not believe it's actually this car's factory-correct color. In fact, with the level of gloss and shine this one has, it really gives this classic a very contemporary look. It allows the sunlight to highlight the nicely-creased curves of this machine, and so it makes the most out of the later C3's integral color-matched bumpers. As you get closer, there's an overall quality that shows this one has been treated with care and investment. The doors shut with authority; the glass is clean and clear; the rubber and weather stripping are pliable; and the headlight doors fit flush. It's the kind of careful appearance you get on a car that has averaged less than 2k miles annually.

The exterior paint has a nice metallic element to give it a little extra flair, and inside the bright silver bucket seats do the same for the supple leather. They are an alluring color combo, and so you'll especially enjoy this one with the T-tops out. These seats even fold flush with the rear trunk area so it's also easier to stow the mirrored glass roof panels. Like any good premium Corvette of this era, it comes loaded with power windows, power locks, tilt steering column, electric rear defogger, and factory Delco AM/FM/cassette stereo. There's even ice-cold air conditioning running modern R134a, so you can stay open to the world all summer long. The power driver's seat gets you in the ideal position for the leather wrapped three-spoke sports steering wheel. Beyond that is the large speedometer and tachometer package in front and a full gauge panel prominently to the side.

The 350 cubic-inch V8 has a terrifically stock presentation, including cool details like the finned valve covers and polished air topper. You're looking at the original numbers-matching motor, and the good care combines with the low mileage to deliver a time capsule engine bay. The V8 inhales deeply through a Rochester four-barrel carburetor, and that gives a fine sports car sound out of the dual exhaust tips. And the fully independent sports suspension and four-wheel power disc brakes mean you can have maximum fun on the roads. But more than just good for performance, this one can also be a nice car for the long trips. That's thanks to features like the three-speed automatic transmission, cruise control, and power steering.

This is the classic Corvette with plenty of modern shine and appeal. It a nice total package offered at quite a nice price. Don't miss out, call today!
