- 1981 Dark Blue Metallic, 2003 AE coupe
Went to a local show on Saturday and was parked next to a red '81 vert. Now I know you're thinkin it ain't so, but this one had a door tag that stated it was built by a company called Flint Corvette and the story from the owner is that it was converted before delivery to the original owner. The history is the car was ordered in California and sent directly to Flint for the conversion. The door tag says it was done in, if I remember correctly, July of 81. The vin on the car indicates it was built around August/September of 80. I'm guessing because it was about 1500 cars before mine and I know mine was built in Oct. 80. The current owner purchased it a year ago last April in Texas. I have only seen a picture of one other and I think it was in Arizona. Anyway, if you like the lines of the 81, the vert is beautiful. To top it off, it had a 454 dropped in it a few years ago. I'll post a picture when I get it off the camera (next week). Anyone else ever seen one of these?
