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.

vehicle description

 

 

Seven Hills Motorcars is very proud to offer this low mileage 1981 Corvette for sale.  This car is numbers matching, with the last six digits of the vin, 402963, stamped on the engine block.  The car is still in it's original color combination, which is verified by the trim tag with is pictured below.  Cinnabar interior is a bit rare and an excellent compliment to the white exterior.  This car left the factory in St. Louis on September 19, 1980.  This is verified by the code on the trim tag, "B19," and the sticker on the drivers door showing. "09/80."  This car is in excellent condition and ready to be driven.  As you look through the description and photos please note how clean and remarkably unmolested this car is.  I invite and encourage you to look at the Corvette in person.

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. 

 

vehicle condition

 
 

Exterior

The white exterior paint is in awesome driver condition.  The paintís finish has a smooth finish and a nice gloss.  Even the low front spoiler, a very venerable area on these cars is in good condition and pictured.  This part of the car is very fragile and a it's condition is a testament to the care and attention this car has received over the years.  The body panel fit, as one car see in the photos, is quite nice for a Corvette.  The bumpers are NOT faded or wavy like many other Corvettes of this vintage.  There are no major scratches or blemishes in the paint that have been excluded from the photos.  There are some small marks in the paint around the car that were too small to show in in the photos, but nothing that is noticeable from five feet away.  This car features aluminum wheels, which are in excellent condition with no curb rash. This car has no rust issues. The frame and everything else on the car is very solid and I have seen no evidence of corrosion around the "A" Pillar.  The car looks just as good in person as it does in the photos.

The side glass and rear window are date coded and original to this car as they predate the build date of September 19, 1980.  This is a good indication that the car has never been in a major accident and never sustained any significant damage.

Driver: TZ - The "T" denotes August and "Z" 1980 so the driver's side window was made in August of 1980.

Passenger: UZ - The "U" denotes July and "Z" 1980 so the driver's side window was made in July of 1980.

Rear: TZ - The "T" denotes August and "Z" 1980 so the driver's side window was made in August of 1980.
 

Interior 

The Cinnabar leather interior in this Corvette is in awesome condition.  The seats look nearly brand new with no excessive wear.  They are not worn or ripped in the typical areas such as where the driver gets in and out like many Corvettes from this vintage.  The carpet is in great shape with no rips, holes, or notable stains.  This include the rear carpet which is often neglected.  The door panels are in great condition and fit tightly to the door.  The dash and console have no splits or sun fading.  This car has not been smoked in, there is no aroma or burn marks anywhere.

 

Mechanical

The corvette is in great mechanical condition.  The car starts right away, drives exceptionally, brakes straight and powerfully.  The car does not smoke.  The transmission shifts smoothly throughout the power band.  It is tight on the road and has been perfectly reliable since I have owned it, which was reiterated by the previous owner.  I personally drove this car all last autumn, including a four hour road trip with no issues.  The headlights go up and down perfectly with both the headlight switch and vacuum override switch, all of the lights work, the horn works, and even the a/c still blows cold.   There are two small items on the car that I know of that do no work, these are the cruise control and as with almost all Corvettes up until 1997, the power antenna.  This Corvette is fast, comfortable, and an absolute pleasure to drive.

Also, for any 1981 Corvette you may look at, be sure to check the "check engine" light.  The light should go on when the key is turned on then quickly go off when the car is started as a confirmation that the light is working.  That majority of these cars have had the bulb removed to mask other problems.  The "check engine" light on this car operates just as it should, going on with the car as a check and then going off when started.


Overall
Condition

Overall the vehicle is in outstanding condition, both the exterior and interior as well as mechanically The vehicle is numbers matching, which is a must for any Corvette that can be taken seriously as a investment or show car.  Corvettes from 1980 to 1982 are becoming highly desirable and have continued to appreciate in value over the past few years.  They are solid investments and will provide you with years of enjoyment.  One could drive and enjoy this car for a few years and then sell it for more than the purchase price. 

If you have any questions about the car please do not hesitate to email or call.  Thank you for looking and have a nice day.
