Introduced for 1968, the third-generation or C3 Corvette was heavily inspired by the rakish Larry Shinoda-designed Mako Shark II concept car of 1965, which was styled under the direction of GM styling Chief Bill Mitchell and debuted to acclaim at the Paris Auto Show. While the new Corvette was a dramatic stylistic departure from the previous generation, the basic chassis and underpinnings were essentially carried over for 1968. The most potent engines found their way into the Corvette's engine bay, including various 427s, limited production L-88, and eventually the LS6 454 in 1971. Small-block performance culminated with the solid-lifter LT-1 from 1970 through 1972.

As increasingly strict emissions regulations sapped performance, the engines were progressively de-tuned, but the Corvette remained one of the fastest cars in America.

The Corvette's Mako Shark design, which dated back to the mid-1960s, adapted quite readily to the changing times, particularly with its revised frontal styling of 1973 that incorporated a government-mandated five-mph bumper, yet retained the Corvette's traditionally clean lines.

Many detail changes, particularly to the interior and instrumentation, continued to refine and enhance the Corvette as a serious driver's car. Horsepower continued to decline and the big-block power was dropped after 1975, but the Corvette still offered a pair of powerful small-block V-8 engines, in standard L48 and upgraded L82 tune, along with manual and automatic transmission choices and performance-oriented rear-axle ratios. Powered by the L82, the Corvette was the fastest production car in North America for 1979, rivaled only by small numbers 1,817 of the Pontiac 400 T/A 6.6 Trans Am that year. The next year, the Corvette reigned supreme and ushered in the 1980s with revised frontal styling.

This 1980 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe is a highly option engine that has its original and 62,000 original miles. There is a 350 CID V8 engine mated to an automatic transmission.
