The Most Desirable Corvette Ever?

The 1967 Corvette is considered the most-loved Corvette ever produced. The combination of classic C2 styling, along with an incredible array of powertrain and comfort options, makes it one of the most desirable Corvettes ever. Not bad for a car that was never supposed to be made!

Classic Car Overview

Prior to going out on a big night, a woman likes to go all out sometimes on the presentation, and part of that mystique is wearing a silver cocktail dress. Silver signifies a sexuality, an allure, and power. For consignment, a night out for this version of the 1980 C3 Corvette bathed in silver. A 350ci L48 V8 and more contrasting black leather inside. Its all dressed up and awaiting your turn of her key which will provide you with excitement! ( I told you the silver would work!). Lay into the throttle and lets go! Due to modifications of the emissions control devices installed by the manufacturer, please check your local, state, and federal laws to determine if this vehicle is applicable for use on public highways in your area. Exterior For 1980 after several years of progressively gaining weight, this year it went on a diet and has lost some weight. A thinner hood and outer doors, lower density roof panels, and making use of aluminum for the differential housing and crossmember help with this effort. Some front and back bumper caps have been added this year, (removed on this car), and this redesign decreased the overall drag coefficient. We can see the use of crossed flag badges: a sexy curved silver rocker fairing that follows the coke bottle design on either side, a T top with silver fiberglass removable panels. The body fiberglass is in overall good condition. All glass, including the greenhouse rear window, which forms itself nearly to the rear spoiler has a fairly substantial storage area underneath, and is in otherwise good condition. The Corvette cove in the front fender remains, round headlights survive another year, and now shiny 15 inch deep dish Chevrolet wheels are on all 4 corners. All bathed in a nice coating of silver. A few minor scratches mostly contained to the bottom end where a previous battle with a curb may have been fought and lost! Honey!!! Im ready to go! Interior In wonderful 1980s Michelin Man style, the black leather overstuffed padded bolster seats with deep inserts and high backs provide the seating for this A ticket ride. These are floating in a sea of clean black carpeting which is all nice and clean. A black molded vinyl dash can be seen upfront, and while the raked angle remains for the dash, analog gauges are now behind a flat piece of clear plastic with some mid point warning lights stacked next to these gauges. These all float within a black slightly textured panel behind the plastic. Fronting these instruments is a factory steering wheel. In the center the cluster of 5 gauges remains also within the black paneling, and just below is an aftermarket stereo neatly inserted which sports AM/FM/Single CD capabilities. Climate control wheels of the past are now sliders and on the center of the console is a ball topped rebuilt Corvette shifter. All this within more black plastic in good condition. Side door panels are nicely preserved, as is the rear carpeted storage area under the green house glass. This area shows some fading mostly near the seat back area and the hidden storage panel doors. May I hold the door for you?! Drivetrain With all this silver lets consider the red line, that being of the tachometer and to get there, we need to look under the hood where there is a numbers matching 350ci V8 L48 which is capable of screaming acceleration. A single Edelbrock 4 barrel carburetor is atop and black matte valve covers and a chromed dish style air cleaner cover can be seen. There is a numbers matching 4 speed manual T10 transmission bolted to the back of the engine with a 3.07 rear axle in the back. A 10 mile list can be checked out for all the upgrades and repairs that were done to this car..check it out! Undercarriage Very nicely preserved with some patina on the black paint of the undercoating, but all else is unremarkable and structurally sound. For the front suspension we note an independent SLA type which features coil springs, mounted shock absorbers, and spherical joint steering knock pivots. In back is an independent SLA forged aluminum upper and lower control arms and steering knuckle, transverse mono leaf springs, a steel stabilizer bar, and spindle offset. Power disc brakes are on all 4 corners. Shades of ground effects for this undercarriage? Drive-Ability She fired right up and our date with the test track began. Here it behaved very well with smooth nearly unending acceleration, great handling thanks to all the above geometry, and bias free panic stopping. The leather overstuffed styled seats were nice and comfy, and I tried to take advantage of this car but then I decided against it. So the test drive ended with smiles for all involved. Noted no catalytic converter, and the AC and wipers are non functional. A lighter, longer hood, better airflow fiberglass sculpted body with the powerful 350ci L48 engine. Nicely aged black Michelin Man styled leather interior, and no faults in the paint, grab her hand and walk her up to the test track, and youll fall in love...hopelessly...happily ever after... 1Z878AS415047 1-Chevrolet Z-Corvette 87-Coupe 8-350ci V8 L82 4bbl 230hp A-1980 S-St. Louis, MO Assy Plant 415047-Sequential Unit Number TRIM TAG D23-November 23rd Build TRIM 192-Black Leather PAINT 13L-Silver Metallic
