You're looking at an American icon that was restored to retain its fully-coordinated and outstanding factory-correct color combo. So this 1981 Chevrolet Corvette was already an attractive classic, and that was before you checked out the exceptionally affordable price.

There's a certain sophistication about this Corvette. The factory-correct silver and dark blue two-tone is a rare treat. And those who know Corvette history know that any two-tone 1981 car means this is part of the Bowling Green batch from the factory's first year. More than just history you'll love this car because there has been a quality investment to amplify the curves of one of the most angular Corvettes in history. The extra metallic luster in the paint, the light blue that separate the two-tone all around the car, and the outlining of the power bulge in the hood - it all makes quite an impression even when standing still.

Inside there are plenty more signs of a quality investment. It starts with the seats that were re-padded and new leather added so the bold hue can so nicely coordinate with the exterior blue. This sea of blue is continued on the door panels, carpeting, center console, dash, and three-spoke sports steering wheel. And all of it has received the kind of serious attention you love in a nicely cared for classic. Not only does it look great, but also this one comes loaded with power seats, power windows, cruise control, tilt/telescope wheel, electric rear defogger, and an upgraded retrosound AM/FM radio with iPod input (the original AM/FM/cassette stereo also comes with the sale.) It also has two sets of T-tops. But of course, our favorite choice is to drive with them out so you can show the world the great coordinating color blue interior.

Under the hood is the numbers-matching 350 cubic-inch V8. This is not only great for collectors, but also this original motor has been treated correctly to make sure this vintage 'Vette is a true driver. Nearly every component has been restored, replaced, or serviced properly – from the pulleys to the correct Quadrajet four-barrel carburetor. There was even the addition of an aluminum radiator to keep everything running cool. The result is a super clean presentation of a reliably robust heart (and you'll love the growl out of the newer Magnaflow dual exhaust.) Because you'll want to take this stunner to events near and far, there have been more investments in the total driving experience. The fully-independent sports suspension has been upgraded with Gymkhana components, Van Steel powder coated A-arms, and new Bilstein shocks. Add in features like the three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and four-wheel disc brakes, and you have make for the perfect all-around driving classic.

There has been so much investment in this vehicle that we don't have the space to go over it all, but give us a call, and we'll go through over $25k in restoration receipts. Plus, the sale comes with all the right paperwork, including the reproduction build sheet, reproduction window sticker, owner's manual, title documentation, and maintenance records. It's amazing you can get this level of high-quality classic for such a reasonable price. That's why you know you need to hurry if you want to grab this deal. Call today!!!
