SUPER RARE 4-SPEED, ONLY 9,888 ORIGINAL MILES, #'S MATCH 350 V8, AMAZING CAR, A+

There is no more driven crowd of survivor car enthusiasts than Corvette fans, and this is one that will surly impress them. Bedsides just its excellent condition, this 1980 Chevrolet Corvette is a rare four-speed manual car with a ridiculously low 9,888 original miles on the odometer. So you're looking at the ultimate C3 survivor for a very affordable price.

This is what a collector-grade late C3 is all about. The factory white paint still looks amazing today with the kind of shine and luster that can only come from years of garage-kept care. In fact this is only a two-owner Corvette, and the last one cherished it for over 30 years. That's why the panels still line up so well, the T-tops fit so sung, and the doors shut with complete confidence. From a style standpoint, this one looks much better with the addition of iconic Rally wheels that came on the earlier C3s.

Such low mileage means little seat time, and so the interior's exceptional appearance should be no surprise. The white seats weigh less than in earlier C3s, and they fold flush with the rear trunk area for better cargo functionality. Like any good Corvette of this era, this one comes loaded with power windows, power steering, tilt/telescope wheel, and AM/FM cassette stereo, all of which are still in perfect working order today. Even the factory air conditioning offers a cool breeze. For the driver, there's a comfortable leather-wrapped three-spoke steering wheel. Beyond that is the large speedo/tach package in front and a full gauge cluster prominently to the side. And when you want to show the world that your interior is as fantastically white as the exterior, you can go cruising around with the T-tops off.

Under the hood the 350 cubic-inch L48 V8 motor looks as honest as the day it left the St. Louis, Missouri factory. Emissions regulations meant this numbers-matching powerplant didn't always have the best horsepower figures of the C3s, but the ace up its sleeve was that this motor produced more torque than a Mercedes sports car of the day. That means you develop a sold hit of power low in the rev range that gets your heart racing and the dual exhaust growling. Plus, while most came with automatic transmissions, this one gives you the most out of the V8 with the control of a four-speed manual. So while this 'Vette has averaged an amazingly low 275 miles per year, you might not be able to resist adding a little more to the odometer. Especially since it also has easy driving features like four-wheel disc brakes.

You're looking at 36-year-old American icon that still has a zero on the left side of the odometer. That's amazing on its own even before looking at the great features, exceptional condition, or the value price. We don't have to make the decision about if this is the one you should collect or drive simply because we know it won't last long in our showroom. Call today!!!
