“In 1981, there was only one powerplant available, a 350 cu in (5.7 L) engine that, like the L-48 base engine the previous year, produced 190 hp (142 kW), but was now designated the L81. The motor was certified in all states and available with manual or automatic transmissions. Chrome air cleaner lids and cast magnesium valve covers dressed up all engines. The stainless steel exhaust manifolds and computer control system introduced on the 305 cu in (5.0 L) California engines the previous year were now standard, as was an auxiliary electric engine cooling fan. This, the last C3 available with a manual transmission, so equipped, had a published 0-60 mph in 8.1 seconds. This model year was the first to use a fiberglass rear leaf spring, now a Corvette trademark.”

For sale by the long time owner is this outstanding modified Corvette. There really is not a lot to say about this one, it is a multiple national show winner that was built for the strip but also to be driven on the street. The car has been featured in a few magazines, a regional car guys newspaper (the Ledfoot News) and also a few TV news shows. It started life as a standard Chevy Corvette that the owner purchased used 20 years ago. Over the following years it was transformed into the awesome street machine you see here. The original engine is long gone and has been replaced with a custom built Chevy 355 small block built by Joe Rhyne competition racing engines out of Indiana. The paint (redone in 2015) is a custom tri-color Candy Apple Red. What follows are some of the important details.
