Although at the moment it is no longer for sale, 1980 Chevrolet Corvette L-82 had been announced in eBay like an almost new car due to its almost perfect state of care.
For a value of $ 32,500, this classic was auctioned on the site to the highest bidder who saw in it a luxury vehicle that did not need repairs because its mileage is so low that it was probably used very little.
The 40-year-old, which has 1,447 miles traveled on its board, was marketed by Chevrolet as a C3, or third generation, and had an L-82 V8 engine that produced 230 horsepower.
At that time, when the car was manufactured, you could only order it from the factory with automatic transmission, and not with a four-speed box like the Corvettes of other generations.
In the publication, the seller ensures that the dark-colored car retains many original features such as paint, battery and documentation.
"This 1980 Corvette was manufactured 39 years ago and was purchased new at Green Chevrolet in Peoria, IL, by the owner of one of the largest privately held local insurers: there he spent most of his life in Emoria Heights, IL. Original owner died, his family reluctant to sell and the dealer wanted to buy the car back (as I was told). A family friend eventually bought the car and became the second owner who once again drove the car in moderation. just used it in the last few years to travel with his wife back and forth between Beijing and the suburbs of Chicago.Temporary days: where your son lives and who recently sold us the car.Then I sent the car to Orange County, California.This time capsule only had two titled owners in almost forty years and it shows!
