1980 Chevrolet Corvette L-82 in Lithia Springs Georgia

 Vehicle Description
Its got all those sweeping contours the third generation Vettes are known for and benefitted from both the aesthetic and technical advances that came before it. This 1980 Chevrolet Corvette L-82 is a road-ready classic, powered by its original engine that anchors a highly functioning drivetrain to provide a fine experience behind the wheel and proudly displaying its original colors both inside and out. br / br / This L-82 started life just a couple of years before the unusually long run of its models third generation would come to an end - its 16 year tenure is actually pretty darned impressive, when you think about it - so Chevrolet had a lot of time to refine its prized sports car and it really shows. The sweeping curvature of the front fenders, that long hood and the sloping rear windshield combine to create a very distinctive presence. The factory-correct white paint emphasizes the exterior artistry on display and still presents nicely. With its low, ground hugging stance pairing with a sharply angled windshield, the car has a sleek, agile look - at the time it was introduced it was one of the most aerodynamic Vettes ever built, with the impressively low drag coefficient to prove it. Its T-top configuration is a great feature - the T-tops themselves are surprisingly light and easy to install and seal nicely, providing the option of the open-air motoring experience of a convertible should you so choose ... but with substantially less wind noise should you opt for protection from the / br / Take a peek inside and youll find that the plush oyster-colored leather interior has held up nicely - by all accounts this car is a survivor thats yet to have stopped its service for any restorative work and its come through the years in strong fashion. The bucket seats are nice and supportive, with deep bolsters and high backs, and they show far less evidence of use than youd likely expect, especially given their light color. The distinctive instrumentation in Vettes of this era is just one of their many defining elements - the assortment of gauges occupying the center console provides a decidedly aeronautical look. Comfort and convenience features include power windows and door locks, a steering column that both tilts and telescopes to attain that perfect driving position, an AM/FM/Cassette deck thats still in top form to provide a quality and period-correct audio experience, and an air conditioning system thats blowing nice and strong but will need just a simple Freon charge to get back to its full abilities. The factory-issue rear window defogger really comes in handy during the cooler weather thats around the corner. br / br / At the center of the engine compartment, the same 350 cubic inch V8 this Vette rolled off the assembly line with is still in very good shape, starting without hesitation and pulling with enthusiasm. Its mated with a 3-speed automatic TH350 transmission thats also likely original and shifts with slip free precision. When you combine the Corvettes relatively light weight with power disc brakes at all four corners, you get a vintage performance vehicle that stops just as well as it accelerates. This fine example of the model in its third generation form sits on a set of unusually clean stock 15 aluminum Corvette wheels, wrapped in Goodrich T/A radials. Below, the undercarriage is solid and well up to the challenge of plenty more fun-filled future miles. br / br / Finding a third-generation Corvette still in possession of its heralded aesthetics is a difficult enough task, and here it combines with a strong running condition, making this 1980 Chevrolet Corvette L-82 a rare opportunity.
