I am proud to present my 1980 350ci with V8 Corvette. Turning the spotlight on a beautifully designed and bathed in Super Shine RED body, and snazzy leather interior. 93,985 miles is all she has clocked on her, and she's holding up very well and always has, a very fun ride anywhere. Always watching many heads turn as you pass through the town here in the mountains of TN.

Recently, our family moved to Gatlinburg,TN. and brought my beauty ( vette) with us. With new ventures, I am now currently looking to sell at a fair price, l have invested so much in TLC! The pictures share a lot, and I have all the receipts for all necessary repairs,ie; belts, tires, oil changes, etc. We've recently expanded in our family and we need to let her go.

The C3 Corvette is the longest running, perhaps most frequently redesigned iteration of an American icon. From 1968 to 1982, the Corvette received a variety of subtle facelifts and styling changes that eventually made the first and final years entirely different cars. Because of this, it is very easy to have a specific C3 Corvette year preference. Many Corvette enthusiasts are polarized one way or the other on certain models; The same goes for this beautiful red 1980 Chevrolet Corvette you see here; while some prefer earlier models, many seek out the neat rear window that became a common sight on Corvettes of the late 1970s.
This 1980 Corvette is a factory vibrant Red with clear coat, and Tan interior that looks just ravishing in the combination. The exterior is eye-catching, as any Corvette should be, and the vibrant red is a wonderful change from the green, brown, yellow and other less bright colors often seen on Corvettes of this vintage. The red and factory aluminum wheels really complement each other well, and this Corvette is bound to be a head-turner! The recent repaint is in excellent condition, and this car is ready to cruise. All exterior components such as trim, emblems, handles, etc. are in excellent condition. As many of my friends share with me, this may just be the nicest 1980 Corvette they have ever seen! The vibrant red paint color isn't just eye-catching because it is bright; this is a rare color! Right around 25% of 1980 Corvettes produced were this color, making it the second lowest-production paint color.
The interior is finished in what GM called "Tan," a shade that really pops inside on a bright red 'Vette! Other interior features include A/C, tilt and telescopic column, rear window defrost, cargo shade, power locks, power windows, and a power radio antenna for the OEM AM/FM/CD player. In the trunk space area you'll find a spare, jack, and t-top covers.
Under the hood is a tried and true Chevrolet 350 V8 RWD engine. It looks well taken care of, and has been. This is a vehicle that has been meticulously kept as factory appearing as possible. It even has the correct heater hoses! Don't worry, this Corvette runs as good as it looks. The engine bay is clean and complete, and the engine purrs just like it should. Additionally, the engine is the correct engine for the car with the correct air cleaner, carburetor, intake manifold, valve covers, and even ignition shielding. This Corvette is fully functional and truly a turn-key classic! The underside is nearly as clean as the top, with many new OEM and reproduction components keep the bone-stock factory correct look throughout. This is a GM car that has been kept all GM with AC Delco parts! Garaged kept & covered the entire time I have personally owned it.
If you're looking for a nice quality C3 'Vette that will draw a crowd anywhere you go, you'll want to consider this one. It needs nothing but a new driver, and is the poster child of the 1980s! This is a fun little head-turner with that classic early 1980s style. Yes the original ( Owners Manual ) is included within this sale. Being a "vette" owner, I always "compare" & I have never seen a 1980 in as good condition.

More about the Exterior...
From the swooping front long racing styled hood, to the simple four round lighted rear with just a touch of spoiler, this car is Bright Red, with a glowing appeal all day. Showing very few chips, scratches and wear for the year of originality 1980 beautifully designed, and preserved ( Garage Kept ). Hidden headlights up front give it an aerodynamic feel, and for some sun, you can pop off the glass panels of the roof. A long and curved greenhouse rear glass covers a large storage area in the rear. Four knockoff style wheels adorn the corners.

And the Interior...
Tan leather, matching carpet, and enough instrumentation to keep you occupied for a significant amount of time, makes up the pure 1980's style interior. All looking good and working correctly in here with a little wear, and some minor staining of the carpet. Some aftermarket electronics in the form of a radio and dials have been installed in place of the factory originals.

Drive train...
A flip of the hood forward, and we have full access to the original un restored engine bay. Houses an 350ci V8 that is verified as numbers matching so its original. A single 2-barrel carburetor sits atop of this mill, and a TH350 automatic transmission is bolted on back. This throws power back to a Dana 44 rear setup and smokes the tires at will. Gold Coast Corvette Rebuilt The Engine, Transmission & Rear-end With Approx. 20,000 Miles Since The Rebuilt. Always Professionally Serviced & Maintained.

Undercarriage, Typical wear, patina, and dirt are showing underneath, and for 1980 is typical. Invasive rust is noted up front under the radiator support, and VERY LITTLE surface rust if any is on the frame in the front of the car. The back of this car shows no rust surface or otherwise. Very little exposure to snow, salt and heat. FL. originally and now TN.

1980 was not a banner year for the Corvette as it was getting pounded fully with emissions regulations, and even had to come up with a different engine for California. Design was definitely there though, and this car shows it. A perfect example, and priced right, and you will be seated in a Corvette, which it doesn't get any better than that.

=======================================================================================

FYI,.. Regarding a “CarFax” Report on this 1980 corvette. With truth and understanding this is what I found and copied for you to review as well. The VIN Number is actual for the year 2910 (13 characters) as listed on vehicle side panels and all documents associated with said Registration, etc. I can only give you my honest word that this car has been in no accidents, no water damage or fire claims! This car is in excellent condition for the year, and model you'll see for yourself in person.

CARFAX Reports are available for vehicles manufactured since 1981, when the 17-character VIN was standardized. CARFAX has information about cars and light trucks, though some information for other vehicle types may be reported to CARFAX as well. CARFAX Reports are powered by the CARFAX database – believed to be the world’s largest vehicle history database – containing billions of records from more than 100,000 domestic and international sources.

So Unfortunately this being a 1980 and the Actual VIN Number has only 13 characters, sorry but I have tried applying for one back when I purchased the vehicle myself, years ago.
