Usually the numbers-matching part of the motor would be the largest attraction to a 1981 Chevrolet Corvette, but not this one. That’s because you can see something extra on top of this original V8. And while this one has the unmistakable bulge of supercharged power, there is a ton more that make this value-priced classic one of the hottest deals going.
Yes, that big and bold air grabber is grabbing our attention, too, but we’ll get to all those details in a moment. What’s worth mentioning first is the quality that surrounds it. This was given a respray of its factory-correct metallic silver later in life. Plus, there’s a great set of satin black dual stripes painted on top – and they took their time so that it even runs over the T-tops when the roof is in place. It’s that kind of detail work you’ll see throughout. The headlight openings fit flush, rubber seals are good, and the door shut with authority. Plus, we love how the shine of the classic Cragar SS wheels go with the big, bold air scoop.
Inside is a pair of tan bucket seats that stand out nicely in the sea of black. And because this is a later C3, these seats also fold flat to give you terrific access to the rear storage. You get nice features like power windows, cruise control, and an upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo. But really, this is a driver’s car at its heart. You’ll love the grip of the three-spoke ports steering wheel. It gives you an excellent view of the large speedo and tach. Plus, to your side is full array of auxiliary gauges. In the middle of the hood you might have spotted the boost gauge, which is just another reminder of the beast powering this classic Corvette.
While this is the numbers-matching 350 cubic-inch block, you want this one for more than just history. There is a huge receipt file documenting the investments it took to transform this V8 into a shining symbol of serious power. It starts with a large Holley 750 CFM four-barrel carburetor that feeds the Weiand 6-71 supercharger. And something of this stature has been fortified and enhanced further with Edelbrock aluminum heads, roller rockers, Comp Cams camshaft, cast calve covers, upgraded pulleys/bracket, Mallory ignition, and a large aluminum radiator. Plus, the long tube headers do a great job of adding power while also announcing this Corvette’s thunder to the world. And when you have this much power in an American muscle machine, you expect it to be a wild child. But since this is a Corvette, you get great features like the fully independent suspension, power steering, three-speed automatic transmission, and four-wheel disc brakes. So this is one high horsepower classic that’s easy to control.
This is the one with speed and stance. So when it’s also available right now for such an nice price, you know you need to hurry to grab this deal. Call today!!!
