1980 Chevrolet Corvette Overview

While 1980 marked the beginning of a decade known for excess, the Chevrolet Corvette was reducing its exterior rather than adding to it. Both the front and rear bumper of this model were made sleeker, giving the Corvette a meaner, leaner look.

The US government also stepped in on the paring down: new cars were not allowed to have speedometers with readings up to 85. Despite the limits in speed readings, the Corvette remained as powerful as always, with its 350ci, 230 horsepower engine (except in California where it was limited to 305ci, 180hp).
