This 1981 Chevrolet Corvette is more than just a slick classic sports car at an affordable price. When you see the investment in the paint, the leather interior, and powerful crate V8, you'll realize that this is a stellar all-around deal.

The factory-correct Dark Blue Metallic is arguably the best color to have from '81, because it still looks nice and modern today. Of course, it also helps that there has been a solid investment in a professional respray. So the clearcoat shine really helps to highlight the curvaceous style of the later C3. These have substantially less chrome than the earlier cars, and so the blue runs uninterrupted from the shark-like nose to the ducktail spoiler – another great reason to invest in a respray. But as a true American classic, it doesn't completely skip the brightwork. Now it's just used to highlight performance enhancements like the aluminum wheels, side vents, and quad tailpipes. But this coupe is a standout for more than just its nice presentation. 1981 was the final year for production at the St. Louis facility. That legendary factory is at the heart of the Corvette tradition from almost the beginning, and this one has a relatively high serial number from the final St. Louis production.

Inside, Camel leather looks great against the exterior blue. That's a good thing because the T-tops allow you to open up to the world and let them all see this unbeatable color combo anytime you want. This one even has an interesting accessory that allows you to mount the glass tops on the exterior rear. Plus, modern R134a air conditioning also means you can stay cool while looking cool. And that's far from the only convenience in this loaded 'Vette. You also have power windows, power locks, tilt wheel, electric rear defogger, cup holders, and an upgraded 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. It's everything you want in a true driver's classic.

Take a good look at the engine bay, because beneath a stock-like appearance lies a nice upgrade. This is a crate 350 cubic-inch V8 that was installed only around 12k miles ago. Plus, this more powerful motor has received the right maintenance like a newer starter and alternator. It inhales deeply thorough a four-barrel carburetor, and exhales with authority from those quad exhaust tips. And because you'll want to take this stunner to events near and far, you'll love the total driving experience. Features like the TH350 three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, fully independent suspension, and four-wheel disc brakes make for the perfect all-around driving classic.

The sale comes complete with maintenance records, build receipts, and a reproduction window sticker (that shows you it was purchased new less than an hour from our showroom.) You're looking at the classic Corvette that comes with a great factory-correct appearance, a good history, and all the right features. So at a price like this, you know you need to hurry to grab this deal. Call today!!!
