I guess the late 70s hadn't totally been forgotten by 1981 and someone needed a two-tone 'Vette to go with their shag carpeting.
I like it, tho I would not want to own it! I am a bit shocked it hasn't vibrated itself to pieces. That much power into an American made car over 38 years? The fit and finish should rattle nonpareil!
This 1981 Chevrolet Corvette is powered by an aluminum-block ZL1 427ci V8 Anniversary Edition 427 crate engine from GM Performance Parts that is mated to a four-speed manual transmission. Additional modifications include an L88-style hood, March Performance pulleys, and custom exhaust. The car was sold new at Bob Eriksen Chevrolet in Milan, Illinois and is finished in two-tone Beige and Dark Bronze over a Camel leather interior. Factory equipment includes glass roof panels, a rear defroster, Gymkhana suspension, power antenna, and air conditioning. Now showing just over 15k miles, this modified C3 Corvette is offered by the selling dealer with its window sticker, factory literature, a certificate of authenticity for the crate engine, service records, and a clean Florida title.
