1981 Corvette Coupe in Maroon Metallic
The 1981 Corvette model year was a year of transition for America’s favorite sports car. The Corvette was wrapping up its long tenure of producing cars in St. Louis as production had also started at a new state-of-the-art facility in Bowling Green, KY. It was the first and only year that Corvettes were made in two different assembly plants simultaneously.
Chevrolet offered just one engine during the model year, the L81 350 ci rated at 190 hp and customers could choose either a 3-speed auto transmission or a 4-speed manual. Chevy engineers continued to refine the car even with the C4 on the horizon. The changes were mostly focused on weight savings which included magnesium valve covers, a fiberglass reinforced mono-leaf rear spring for auto transmission cars, and tubular stainless steel exhaust systems.
The 1981 Corvette Coupe offered by Corvette Mike is a time capsule with only 8,737 miles on the odometer. Dressed in beautiful Maroon Metallic and featuring a Camel interior, options include aluminum wheels, leather seats, raised white letter radial tires, cruise control, AM/FM stereo w/8-track & power antenna. Corvette Mike says the air conditioning blows cold and it comes with a custom embroidered car cover.
This 1981 Corvette has been judged and has numerous awards, including an NCRS National Top Flight (98.6 score), and the prestigious NCRS 4-Star Bowtie Award. This survivor comes with the original owner’s kit with original keys with knock-outs, paperwork, service receipts, and owner history. Don’t miss out on this time capsule ’81 Corvette. Offered at Corvette Mike for $39,900.
2003 Corvette 50th Anniversary Edition Convertible
Not many automobiles have the distinction of being continuously produced for 50 years, but the Chevrolet Corvette reached that milestone with the 2003 model year. To celebrate, General Motors through a huge two-day party in Nashville featuring car displays, parades, technical seminars, and racing exhibits. A Corvette Caravan brought enthusiasts from across the country, and rock band ZZ Top was the headlining entertainment.
Chevrolet celebrated with a special 50th Anniversary Package for both Coupes and Convertibles featuring a special Anniversary Red exterior and Shale leather interior. The accruements also included 5-spoke Pewter wheels, Magnetic Ride Control, and 50th Anniversary badging. The 50 Anniversary Package accounted for 33% of production (11,632), and of those, a total of 7,547 were convertibles.
Corvette Mike is offering a 2003 50th Anniversary Corvette Convertible with only 3,200 original miles. Powered by the 350-hp LS1 engine, the 50th Edition has the desirable 6-speed manual transmission.

Add all that up, and you’ve got the perfect Corvette for a long cruise down the Pacific Coast Highway. Offered for $42,900.
2023 Corvette Stingray Convertible
Not only is the 2023 Corvette model year the fourth year of production for the mid-engine C8 Corvette Stingray, it also marks the Corvette’s 70th Anniversary. While Chevrolet offered a specific 70th Anniversary Package, the automaker allows every model to get in on the celebration with a 70th Anniversary badge on the car’s interior.
But perhaps the most popular feature going on the new C8 Corvettes is the hardtop convertible. Sales of the Convertible Corvette models hit 48% in 2022, and they haven’t been this strong since the 1969 Corvette.

You can also use the keyfob to raise or lower the top as well.
