about our dealership
Seven Hills Motorcars is Cincinnati's premier Corvette specialist.   We are a licensed and registered auto dealer by the State of Ohio.  With many years of focused experience I specialize in 1963 to 2004 Corvettes.  There is no other dealership that can better meet your needs if you would like to buy, sell, or just find out more information about your Corvette.  This is simply a one man operation, and this is not my full time employment.  I do it because I enjoy it.  I am a collector and enthusiast and therefore look for cars that excite me.  I do not purchase at dealer auctions; each car is hand picked by me because it is special or rare to me and because I like it.

corvette  description

 
  Seven Hills Motorcars is proud to offer this numbers matching 1981 Corvette with just 66,620 original miles.  This Corvette is one of the most handsome and stately color combinations, Frost Beige on Camel Leather.  Please note that this car is not white and looks distinctly beige colored in person.  The car is its original color combination, which can be verified by the trim tag numbers.  This is a correct numbers matching car with the last 6 digits of the VIN, 408607, appearing on the engine pad.  This car was finished on Halloween, October 31, 1980.  This is verified by the code "C31" on the trim tag, "C" means October and "31" is the thirty-first day of the month. 

 

As a side note, this Corvette is not a dealer auction vehicle.  We hand pick each car after careful inspection.  Our cars come from owners who expect their cars to go to someone that will give the vehicle the same care and attention as they did.  We invite and encourage you to examine the car in person or have the car inspected.  Please take the time to examine each picture.  We photograph each vehicle to the greatest extent so you can feel confident about bidding.  If you have a question about the Corvette, just give us a call.

 

corvette  condition

 
 
 

Exterior

 

The Frost Beige exterior paint is in excellent driver condition.  The paint has an extremely nice gloss and a smooth finish.  Often Corvettes of this vintage will have chipped up front ends or wrinkly rear spoilers, this car does not.  Also, the underside of the front end is very fragile and prone to damage.  I included photos of this area to show the care with which this car has been driven over the years.  There are no major paint defects that have been excluded from the photos.  There are also some very small blemishes in the paint around the car that were too small to show up in the photos,  but nothing that is really noticeable from ten feet away.  This Corvette came equipped with aluminum wheels, which are in excellent condition with a great finish and no curb rash.  There are no rust issues with this car.  There is no rust on the frame in front of the rear tire around the "key hole" and no rust visible on the "A" pillar or around the windshield.

 

 

Interior

 

The interior of this Corvette is in nice condition.  The seats look very good for the mileage and show very little wear.  The driver’s seat is not worn through in the typical places, such as where the driver’s belt-line may wear the seat bolsters.  There is a small spot on the passenger seat.  I have specifically included a photo showing the flaw.  The carpet is in good condition with no rips, holes, or stains This includes the rear carpet with is often neglected.  The console and dash look just as nice in person as they do in the photos with no cracks or sun fading.  This car has not been smoked in, there is no aroma or burn marks anywhere.  The t-top bags are also included with the car.

 

 

Mechanical

 

This car is in fine mechanical condition.  It starts easily, runs well, and idles well.  The car emits no smoke.  1981 was the last year for the carbureted Corvettes.  Most people prefer a carbureted Corvette over the complicated fuel injected models.  The carburetors provide simple, reliable operation.  This Corvette has plenty of power and is very fast.  The 3 Speed transmission shifts smoothly throughout the power band.  The car is very tight on the road and highway and also brakes strongly and perfectly straight.  The headlights go up and down as they should with both the headlight switch, and the headlight override vacuum switch.  All of the gauges work as they should.  There are some items on the car that do not work: the cruise, "check engine light," power locks, and a/c.  These are minor issues that most dealers would not disclose and that do not affect the drivability of the car. 

 

 

Overall

 

Overall the Corvette is in fantastic condition.  There are very few Frost Beige C3s on the market and this time of year in this economic situation is about the best time ever to buy a car like this.  The vehicle is numbers matching, which is a must for any Corvette that can be taken seriously as a investment or show car.  One could easily buy this car now, drive and enjoy it for several years, and then sell it for more than the purchase price. This body style has increased in price rapidly over the past few years. They are now over 25 years old and will continue to increase in time. The Corvette always turns heads and is admired by every car enthusiast.
