Corvette C3 Great overall condition, with only 65.000 Miles (1980)




What a joy it must have been when the first owner left the dealer for his first miles with this amazing Corvette in 1980.
Where to start with this beautiful 1980 Chevrolet Corvette C3 L82? At the low mileage of less than 65,815 miles? With the great triple red color scheme? No, let’s start with the most special feature of this Corvette. This Corvette has a beautiful dark red color with a dark red leather interior with red carpets (triple red) that is in very good condition. Also the T-Top should not be forgotten in this one! The paint is in a very good condition and largely original. The body of this Chevrolet C3 is of course made of plastic. By using plastic, Chevrolet was able to make the nose of the Corvette extremely pointed, a look that at that time would simply not be suitable for series production with steel. Another additional advantage of plastic is that it does not rust and the panels are easy to disassemble. The steel chassis is also in top condition and free of rust. The car has always been garaged and it shows, the Florida climate has certainly contributed to this. The red leather interior is in very well-maintained original condition. The 350 cubic inches (5.7 liter) V8 engine runs beautifully and has more than enough power as you would expect. The engine is mated to a three-speed automatic transmission.
It is also striking that we are dealing with a real sports car here. The Corvette is richly equipped with counters that pass on vital information about the engine. Furthermore, the sporty deep seating position and the pleasantly positioned steering wheel are also striking. The pedals are easy to find and pleasant to operate. The interior is neatly maintained and everything functions as it should.
The chassis is comfortably tuned, the Corvette is of course a real sports car, but one that must also be able to be used for covering large distances and that is noticeable while driving. The miles glide effortlessly beneath you and hours of driving turn into days and before you know it, you’re on the other side of Europe, being treated to the sounds of that fantastic V8 engine.
