Sellers original description:
1981 Chevrolet Corvette.
The third generation Corvette, patterned after the Mako Shark II concept car, was introduced for the 1968 model year and lasted until 1982. C3 coupes featured the first use of T-top removable roof panels and were sold in record numbers despite changes due to EPA regulations and the gas crisis of the 1970s. It introduced monikers that were later revived, such as LT-1, ZR-1, and Collector Edition. The Corvette's 25th anniversary was celebrated in 1978 with a two-tone Silver Anniversary Edition and an Indy Pace Car replica edition. It was the first time that a Corvette was used as a Pace Car for the Indianapolis 500.
Personal vehicle. It has rarely been driven. Everything on the car is original right down to the air in the tires. Taken out every few months for a little drive and then put it back in the garage. It is as close to perfect as you will find. The pictures do not do it justice.
