Rescue Me: 1981 Chevrolet Corvette

This next car comes from tipper SecondMouse who writes: Animals have rescues. Cats. Dogs. Even specific breeds like French Bulldogs. Cars need rescuers too. Case in point is this low mileage, long-stored 1981 Corvette that is not running and priced accordingly. Not the most popular model, sure, but it is done depreciating, and still deserves to be returned to the road. Find this 1981 Chevrolet Corvette offered for $4,200 in Katy, TX via craigslist.

  1. One thing I'm not scared of in the automotive world is a non-running SBC.
    Sure these are not most peoples favorite Vette but if one just looks at the body shape and the proportions it is pretty awesome. Nothing really looks like it on the road now.
    Plus it's good enough for Jack to drive it with his feet

  2. Love this. If my son wasn't about to start college I'd seriously looking into this. Agreed, not the most popular year, but still a sweet ride.

  3. Loved this when I saw it. Not far from me, but a picture of it would be on my tombstone by the end of the year if I bought it right now. With these low miles, probably non-running due to a gacked up carb or other fuel problem, but mechanical parts are plentiful and cheap. A little knowledge and effort likely gets this thing back on the road.

  4. Not that long ago it was the C3 that got little love while people doted on all other gens. Now it's the C4. As a proud owner of a nice 6-speed convt. C4 I'm looking fwd to the day that my Corvette isn't the whipping boy generation ...
