1980 stands out as a pivotal year in the Corvette lineage for several reasons. It was the last year made without on board computers, and the last year for the famed L82 engine which was only available with an automatic transmission. Just 5,069 of the 40,614 Corvettes in 1980 built were produced with the L82 engine, which was rated by the factory at 230 horsepower. The 1980 Corvette coupe offered here is in unrestored, brand new condition with just 4 miles on the odometer. The car has never been registered and is still on the original MSO. Finished in highly desirable Red with a Red interior, it comes with the original window sticker that indicates the car was ordered with every available option except the trailer towing package. An amazing 1980 Corvette that is likely unsurpassed in its originality.
