Vehicle Description:

THE VETTE NET is a Nationwide and International Corvette Brokerage Network, proud Lifetime Business Member #991 of the National Corvette Museum.  

We are pleased to offer a 1981, the last of the carbureted engines available in Corvettes.  This model sports a newer Blue paint job which is in very good condition and looks great, described as 8.5 quality.  According to the trim tag, it was originally RPO  59L which identifies it as Cream.  Interior is the correct Camel Leather, code 642.  All new mats are present.

It is equipped with power windows, power locks (disconnected) and AC which blows cold with a new Delco fan recently installed.  All gauges work and benefited from a new circuit board.  The t-tops were replaced by a one piece transparent acrylic top which adds a touch of custom.

Engine runs strong and exhibits lots of power, transmission shifts smoothly.  The vacuum operated headlights work as they should.  Miles show 46K, but there is no proof that could be actual.

Has the optional original Aluminum wheels with good tires (80-90% life left).

Car is owned by a couple of Corvette enthusiasts who maintained it regularly and did lots of upgrades as follows:

  • New steering wheel (original will be included with sale of car).
  • New power window switches and door handle trims.
  • New retractable shoulder and lap seat belts on both driver and passenger sides.
  • New aluminum wheel center caps on all wheels.
  • New front and fuel door emblems.
  • Engine refreshed:
  • New Camshaft, lifters and pushrods
  • New Timing chain and cover
  • All seals and gaskets replaced
  • New MSD HEI Distributor
  • New Edenbrock carburetor 1407
  • New Oil Pump and pump shaft; New spark plugs
  • New coolant expansion tank
  • Brakes: new hoses, calipers and pads

All in all, this Corvette is a fine example of a late Stingray in great condition both cosmetic and mechanic which will give you plenty of happy miles and lots of smiles.
