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 over 88,900 original miles.  This Corvette is one of the most handsome and stately color combinations, Charcoal Metallic on Silver Gray Leather..  The car is its original color combination, which can be verified by the trim tag numbers that are pictured.  This is a correct numbers matching car with the last 6 digits of the VIN, 413907, appearing on the engine pad.  This car was finished on December 11, 1980.  This is verified by the code "E11" on the trim tag, "E" means December and "11" is the eleventh 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 Charcoal exterior paint is in excellent driver condition.  The paint has an extremely nice gloss.  The paint is not swirl marked like most dark colored cars.  Often many Corvettes of this vintage will have 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 some smaller blemished in the paint on the tip of the front bumper.  I specifically included a photos of them.  There are no major paint scratches or large chips 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 five feet away.  This Corvette came equipped with aluminum wheels, which are in excellent condition with a nice finish. 

 

All of the glass is date coded and original to the car as it predates the build date of December 11, 1980.  This indicates that the car has never been in a major accident and never sustained any significant damage.

 

Windshield: YZ - The "Y" denotes October and "Z" 1980 so the windshield was made in October of 1980.

 

Driver: YZ - The "Y" denotes October and "Z" 1980 so the driver's side window was made in October of 1980.

 

Passenger: AZ - The "A" denotes September and "Z" 1980 so the passenger's side window was made in September of 1980.

 

Rear Window: CZ - The "C" denotes November and "Z" 1980 so the rear window was made in November of 1980.

 

Interior

 

The interior of this Corvette is in marvelous original condition.  The seats look incredibly nice for the mileage and show very little wear.  Also, please note that these are the original seats, they have not been replace or recovered with cheap aftermarket replacements.  I have specifically included a picture of the area on the drivers seat that is usually the worst because Corvettes are so prone to wear there.  The carpet is in good condition and looks original, with no rips or holes This includes the rear carpet with is often neglected.  The console and dash look just as nice with no cracks or sun fading.  This car has not been smoked in, there is no aroma or burn marks anywhere.  Detail items, such as the rear cargo cover and the pulls for the battery and storage compartments that are so fragile and usually broken, are not on this car.  The t-top bags are also included with the car.

 

 

Mechanical

 

This car is in great mechanical condition.  It starts easily, runs well, and idles well.  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.  There are no rust issues with this car.  The frame is in good condition and I have seen no evidence of corrosion around the windshield and "A" pillar.  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, even the cruise control works.  There are some items on the car that do not work: the horn, power locks, a/c, and the power antenna, an extremely common issue on Corvettes up to 1996.  These are very minor issues that most dealers would not disclose, however, in my attempt to be totally honest I feel as if I must disclose them. 

 

 

Overall

 

Overall the Corvette is in fantastic condition.  There are very few Charcoal Metallic 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.

 

Thank you for looking and please email or call with any questions.
