1980 Chevrolet

Corvette Coupe


What We Like

The Corvette is often referred to as “America’s Sports Car” due to a legendary history of rumbling V8 engines, athletic handling, and true racing pedigree. This Dark Blue Metallic example sports late-C3-chassis aerodynamic bodywork and is powered by an L48 350ci V8 coupled with a factory-optional 3-speed Turbo Hydramatic transmission. This particular C3 is said to be mechanically stock with an Audiovox AM/FM/cassette stereo said to be the only modification. This Corvette provides the opportunity to get behind the wheel of an American icon in rare colors at an attractive entry point.

Seller Information

Vehicle History & Overview

According to the factory build-sticker, this Corvette was built in January 1980 and was equipped with the L48 350ci V8 engine. The selling dealer acquired the car in October 2022 and has added less than 100 of the 73,600 miles shown. Touch-up paint and two keys are included.

The C3-chassis Corvette was launched in 1968 and was also known as the Corvette Stingray until 1976. 1980 saw major changes to the front and rear bumper that resulted in improved aerodynamics and reduced drag. Reportedly, 90% of 1980 Corvettes were ordered with the factory-optional aluminum-alloy wheels shown on this example. Corvettes equipped with the L48 V8 engine and automatic transmission could accelerate from 0-60mph in 7.8 seconds and achieve a 123 mph top speed.
