1981 Chevrolet Corvette description
This is a great car with a great custom plate that says it all. The records go back to the 80's. Their is a book of records. The original owner had it till 6 years ago.
1981 was the first year Corvettes were ever produced in two factories at one time. The new Bowling Green, Kentucky plant produced its first Corvette on June 1, 1981 while the St. Louis plant was producing its last Corvettes. The last St. Louis Vette was produced on August 1, 1981. All St. Louis Corvettes were painted with lacquer paints while the new Bowling Green plant had a brand new paint facility and used enamels with clear top coats. 1981 was the last year a manual transmission was available until late in 1984 with the C4. Automatic transmission Corvettes were equipped with a new fiberglass re-inforced rear mono-spring. This spring was 33 pounds lighter than the steel spring. Cars with the manual transmissions or the Gymkhana supsension package still received the steel spring. A new two-tone paint process was available for the first time from the Bowling Green factory. The computer command control which was used on the California Corvettes in 1980 was now standard on all Corvettes. The stainless steel exhaust mainfold from the California Vettes was also standard, it weighed 14 pounds less than the cast iron manifold and flowed better as well. A new chromed air cleaner cover was added to the engine compartment. California buyers could finally buy a manual Corvette this year. A quartz clock was now standard and a six-way power seat was optional. Electronic tuning radios could have an optional CB radio or an 8-track tape player. 1981 marks the first year that Corvette body style numbers were incorporated into the VIN number instead of being a seperate number.

Passes smog regularly. The car look and runs great. This is a California car with custom wheels and glass t-tops. Only real flaw is the carpet on the driver's side is worn from getting in and out and driver's seat is worn. A carpet kit is about $200 for the front and $400 for the whole car according to the catalog. The carpet on the floor is good due to car mats. This car is very clean for a 36 year old survivor with only 150000 original miles. Comes with California Title and records. Don't assume anything. Ask or inspect before bidding. This car is being sold "AS IS". I reserve the right to end the auction early. For more info call Gregg at (415)444-6378On Mar-17-17 at 09:58:14 PDT, seller added the following information:
