Corvette C3 of the Week
Some information about my 1980 Corvette
In May 2008, I purchased this
beautiful and rare 1980 Shark with only 17,622 original miles. There were
only 2,077 1980 Corvettes trimmed in yellow paint, and an even fewer number
equipped with a four-speed manual transmission. In 1994, this car was
honored in the August issue of Corvette Fever Magazine, where it appeared both
on the cover and a feature article entitled Rare Original (center pages 42-43).
The article highlighted an extremely well preserved 1980, Code 52 yellow Vette
with black leather interior and a four-speed transmission. At the time the
article was written, then second owner, Tom DeLuca, had logged only 15,700 miles
on the car. Recognized for its beauty and originality, this Corvette was
also honored with autographs from Corvette Chief Engineer Dave McClellan and the
"Father of the Corvette", Zora Duntov.
They don't come much nicer than this.
