Gilligan: 1981 Chevrolet Corvette C3 Coupe 15K Original Mile Survivor – Sold!
While we love the front-end styling of the 1980-1982 C3 Corvettes the most, the Malaise-Era 190 horsepower and forced automatic transmission usually has us looking at earlier models. However, the classic white over red leather, 15K original mile example listed on Craigslist in Manalapan, New Jersey may entice some to buy for looks rather than performance. The current owner has his Corvette listed for a staggering asking price of $27,500. A check of the Hagerty Insurance Online Valuation Tool confirms that’s $600 higher than the #1 “Concours” estimate of $26,900. We’re sorry, but only a fool like Gilligan would pay that kind of money for this Corvette.
Here’s the seller’s description:
“1981 Corvette (the Shark) – 14,709 original miles.
documentation of owners/repairs
additional set of rims with cones
additional set of glass t-tops
Always garaged. Get ready for the summer“
