1981 Chevrolet Corvette (One Owner, 54k original miles)

Description

1981 Chevrolet L81 Corvette

One owner, fully documented, 54k original mile L81 Corvette. This rare, 4-speed manual Corvette has spent its entire life in Southern California. Manufactured in the Bowling Green plant which boasted a new, state-of-the-art paint facility utilizing enamel with clear coat as opposed to Vettes produced in the St. Louis plant that utilized lacquer paint.

Only 5,575 of the 40,606 ‘81 Vettes produced, came equipped with a 4-speed manual.

As a California car, this Vette is equipped with the stainless steel exhaust manifold weighing 14 lbs less than the standard cast iron manifold and reportedly allowed for better exhaust flow.

The L81, 190hp 350ci V8 was the only engine available in 1981. This car features its original drivetrain. The only known modification is an upgraded intake manifold added when repairs were made to address a worn cam lobe. Receipt for work is included.

A full history of service paperwork is included with this car including the original dealer invoice, build sheet, as well as many other original documents.

Paint is reportedly all original outside of a respray to the top half of the rear bumper (paperwork included).

Is everything in working order ?? Gauges AC , power windows heater defroster headlights , tail lights , no overheating problems , rough idle , shifting or clutch problems , engine miss , smoke coming out tailpipes . Oil leaks. I know I’m asking slot but the car is 31 years old even with just 54k miles. If I bid and win I’m flying out from Florida and driving it back so I feel taking a risk without being able to drive and inspect it. Don’t want to break down in the middle of no we’re in the middle of… Read more »

OK, thanks. First of all, do things like the A/C, heat, cassette player, and cruise control work as they should? Do all the gauges work? Thanks.
