1980 was notable because it was the last model year Corvette without a computer, and ours has the rare 350 cubic inch L82 engine under the hood that is the original numbers-matching engine with its Rochester Quadrajet 4-barrel.
It is all original looking too with its 4-barrel carb, finned aluminum valve covers, black twin-snorkel air cleaner, factory exhaust system with twin pipes out back and a great sound.
The engine bay is highly original with power four-wheel disc brakes, power steering, backed by a TH350 3-speed automatic transmission, R12 cooled air conditioning, and riding on the Goodyear Eagle GT raised white-letter radial tires on the polished factory Corvette wheels.
The 66k miles shown are believed authentic as you can see on the engine, chassis, and the interior. It has a black leather interior that looks very original with many options including power windows, factory A/C, original AM/FM/ radio, leather-wrapped steering wheel, factory center console that houses the automatic shifter, factory dash with all the Corvette gauges, matching door panels, black colored carpets, seatbelts, and an unbroken armrest.
The C3 Corvettes were patterned after the Mako Shark II designed by Larry Shinoda and built under Bill Mitchell’s direction. The fender flares were designed into the body contours, egg-crate grills with matching front fender side vents and larger squared front directional lamp were standard.
Our Corvette is covered in the Dark Claret Red factory paint in 2005 and has been garage kept and well preserved since and looks great with its deep gloss and shine It has only been driven 1000 miles since 2000.
It has the Corvette hatchback that greatly improved the aerodynamics, the chin spoiler up front, the ducktail spoiler out back, and the T-tops up top. The trim looks good with the blacked-out rocker panels as does the Corvette badges and fiberglass stylish front and rear ends.
If you’ve ever wanted to experience a true Corvette American legend, you can’t go wrong with the beautiful Dark Claret Red original but repainted 1980 Corvette that we have here at Skyway Classics.
Trust me, everyone looks at this Corvette when you are driving it or sitting anywhere as it is a very nice looking Corvette and is a very rare color combination too.
