Car history:
Posted 06/10/2019

This one still wears its original color combo, recently refreshed and showing
extremely well today. Although finished to a higher level, it's not a trailer queen
and can be enjoyed without having to worry about rain or bugs on the finish.
By 1980, build quality had improved by leaps and bounds, so you'll find good
gaps, neat-fitting bumper caps and headlight buckets, and T-tops that seal up
well. T-Tops, simply a great way to further sport-up a C3. With an update in
1978, the fastback profile with aggressive front and rear spoilers is as good as
the C3 got, and it's instantly recognizable today. Unlike a lot of Corvettes of
this period, this one hasn't been dressed up with aftermarket add-ons, pinstripes,
or other nonsense that purists reject; it's just a very clean, original 'Vette.

The beautiful code 722 red leather interior is pure 1980s cool and we like the
contrast a lot more than plain old black or bland oyster. With a comfortable
look that's quite inviting, it's hard to resist sliding into those deep buckets and
looking out over that long, dramatic hood. The seats show slight wear that's
frankly so minor that it's not commensurate with the car's age and mileage,
while the rest of the interior is very well preserved with only minimal signs of
use. And take a look at that rare wood grain on the center console; makes you
want to read a leather-bound book and enjoy a single-malt after your trip, no?
Corvettes were loaded with standard equipment in 1980, including A/C, power
windows, tilt wheel, and a complete array of gauges that are highly visible and
easy to read. An AM/FM/CD/iPod compatible head unit is neatly fitted in the
center stack, so make a few trips to garage sales and see if you can outfit it
with some kicking '80s sounds! The A/C has been upgraded to R134a refrigerant
(needs to be serviced), but that's really the only other major deviation from
original spec.

Dual snorkels on the air cleaner suggest that this is an L48 engine, and it is
indeed this car's original, numbers-matching powerplant. With 190 horsepower,
it was a fairly stout performer in 1980, and even today the solid whack of torque
will get your heart racing on the street. It starts quickly and idles easily thanks
to careful maintenance and conscientious ownership throughout the years,
keeping it in top mechanical condition. It's topped by a Rochester 4-barrel
carb, stock exhaust and intake manifolds, and has been upgraded to an HEI
ignition system. The engine bay is clean and well-maintained, and items like
the air cleaner lid and valve covers remain in excellent shape. The TH350
3-speed automatic transmission shifts crisply and the power 4-wheel disc brakes
and power steering contribute to a fantastic driving experience. The original
slotted alloy wheels look great and wear fat 255/60/15 Firestone Firehawk
performance radials.
