Description of 1980 Chevrolet Corvette

Wearing a distinctive but original exterior color that sets it apart from the crowd, this 1980 Chevrolet Corvette is one very sharp looking third generation specimen of one of the most coveted nameplates to ever hit American streets. It sports numbers-matching power under its hood and drives impressively well while also offering the exhilarating option of open air driving at your choosing. You just don't see too many 'Vettes on the street wearing the Frost beige color this one is decked out in. It's the very selection off the '80 color chart that it began life with and an obviously meticulously applied respray has brought out the best in its understated yet magnetic curb appeal. This true American sports car has come through its nearly four decades of service in strong fashion - not only will you not find any stress cracks marring its exterior but, as a closer look will reveal, the exterior alignment on this '80 continues to impress. The gaps surrounding its body panels are nice and even, and the prominent hood and doors open and close very smoothly. Hidden headlights were a defining feature of its generation and, unlike so many you come across, these raise into position without issue and sit very flush when lowered. The T-top configuration, allowing you to quickly transition from open air motoring to a more sheltered driving experience, is a great benefit and the roof panels on display here retain their sharp mirror finish and seal well when locked into place. The doe skin interior - a very appealing shade of tan - is in flat out great shape. Climb inside and you'll be surrounded by surfaces that really don't show much in the way of wear. The contoured buckets aren't marred by any creasing or discoloration and offer plenty of comfort, as well as pronounced bolstering for support during more spirited driving. Up front, the dash area also presents very well, with clear, functional gauges in the cluster that extend to its center, and a very fresh looking pad running across the top. Comfort and convenience features include a steering column that both tilts and telescopes to arrive at the perfect position, power windows and air conditioning that's running nice and strong to keep you and your passengers comfortable. While the Corvette's identity is and always has been centered on that of a performance-centric sports car, there is some usable space directly behind the bucket seats. The engine compartment remains in factory configuration and has likely seen a trip or two to a steam cleaning facility to maintain its tidy look. The original, numbers matching 350 cubic inch V8 sits at its center, looking nicely detailed. It sports a fresh running condition to match its appearance - carrying a correct Quadrajet 4-barrel carb on top, this powerplant starts up promptly and runs very smoothly while sending a nice, throaty rumble into the headers leading to its dual exhaust. The engine teams with a 3-speed automatic transmission that's shifting securely and precisely to make up a rock solid drivetrain. Smooth power steering, added to the Corvette's low, road-hugging stance, makes it a very adept corner carver, while power disc brakes at all four corners bring it to dependable, fade resistant stops as needed. The view from below reveals a very solid looking undercarriage and this well-restored Chevy classic cruises on a set of 15" stock Corvette rims that are outfitted with General tires. Super sharp and in very strong, ready to drive condition, this 1980 Chevrolet Corvette would be a great addition to any collector's garage. Call today!
