HISTORY OF THE 1981 CHEVROLET CORVETTE: In 1981, the most significant change to the Chevrolet Corvette was hidden from view. Corvettes with Turbo HydraMatic transmissions had a new fiberglass-reinforced monoleaf rear spring that weighed just eight pounds (33 pounds less than the multi-leaf steel spring it replaced), and the new spring eliminated interleaf friction. Also new for 1981 was the L81 version of the 350-cid V-8. It was rated for 190 hp, with lightweight magnesium rocker arm covers. The engine featured new stainless-steel free-flowing exhaust manifolds that weighed 14 pounds less than the previous cast iron manifolds. Also new under the hood was the thermostatically-controlled auxiliary electric fan that boosted cooling and allowed use of a smaller main fan. In the drivers cabin, a new Computer Command Control system controlled fuel metering, as well as the torque converter lock-up clutch that operated in second and third gears. A quartz crystal clock was now standard, and the Corvette’s standard anti-theft alarm added a starter-interrupt device. In terms of manufacture, 1981 saw the grand opening of an all new plant in Bowling Green, KY. In fact, all two-tone 1981 cars were painted at the new plant. Just 8,995 Corvettes were manufactured in this plant the first year, making this example a rare and desirable find!
