BUILT 383 FUEL INJECTED V8, TKO 600 5-SP, UNGRADED SUSPENSION, A/C, 4 WHEEL DISC

This 1980 Chevrolet Corvette does it all the right way. More than just an affordable price, you get the late C3 clean design with powerful custom touches like fresh metallic paint and bold side pipes. So you're already hooked on this one, and we haven't even mentioned the performance-built 383 stroker motor, five-speed stick, or the A/C interior!

Most late-C3 Corvettes you see keep close to the '78 pace car's mute silver color scheme, but this one has gone in a very different direction. This coupe is bold with a bright metallic red that strikes the perfect balance between the factory's cherry red and dark claret. And of course, the gloss and shine on this more modern hue are a great way to enjoy the sunshine. Even without the paint, the 1980 C3s are really coming into their own thanks to a growing appreciation for features like the sporty front air damn, distinct rear spoiler, and clean chrome-free body. But like any good classic American, this one doesn't completely skip out on the brightwork. It's just saved for the optional 15-inch factory aluminum wheels. Oh, and we did not forget about this side pipes. They're another clear indication that this is something special, but we'll go into more detail in a moment.

Inside, the tan interior is so nicely presented that it offers a striking color combo with the metallic red. The seats weigh less than earlier C3s, and they fold flush with the rear trunk area for better cargo functionality. Like any good Corvette of this era, it comes loaded with power windows, power locks, power steering, tilt wheel, electric rear defogger, and the original AM/FM stereo. But this is a true driver's vehicle with a three-spoke sports steering wheel. Beyond that is the large speedometer and tachometer in front, and a full gauge package prominently to the side. You can show this fantastic interior to the world as you go cruising around with the T-tops off. There's even ice-cold air conditioning running modern R-134a so you can stay open to the world all summer long.

One look under the hood, and you instantly know there was some serious money invested in performance. Not only is the 383 cubic-inch stroker motor larger than anything you could have had in 1980, but also this fuel-injected V8 has plenty of go-fast goodies. It includes Dart Sportsman plug heads, TRW pistons, Comp Cams roller cam, Holley EFI control module, MSD ignition, GM Slant Edge alloy valve covers, and plenty more, so you should call for all the details. This connects to Hooker long tube headers that add more power as they create a truly ferocious sound from the side pipes. Best of all you are in complete control of the thunder and the fury of this performance motor thanks to the TKO 600 five-speed manual transmission and Hurst line lock shifter. This connects to a 3.55 rear end that has been beefed up to handle all the extra power. But more than just brute force, this 'Vette understands the backroads. The fully independent sports suspension has new trailing arms, shocks, compensating springs, and much more. Plus, the four-wheel disc brake package has been upgraded to a Wilwood package.

Complete with build receipts and owner's manual, you're looking at a Corvette that has been upgraded to make a great first impression for everyone and keep the driver grinning from ear to ear. So when it's this affordably priced, you know it's time to hurry up. Call today!!!
