    As Bud is not available at the moment, I'll try to answer your question based strictly on my very limited knowledge of the 1981 Corvette.

    The information presented is available at various places, both here on the CAC 1981 Model Page and the L81 Registry FAQ section.

    L81 is the notation for the engine block used in 1981 Corvettes. The L81 was the only engine option available in 1981 Corvettes. L81 Corvettes may not be the most valuable Corvettes on the road these days, but several factors (including the L81 engine), make it somewhat unique.

    1981 Corvettes feature the L81 small block Chevrolet engine, which is controlled by one of the first applications of computer controls in Corvettes.
    Another important fact about L81 Corvettes was that this model was made at two different plants - St. Louis, Missouri and Bowling Green, Kentucky. Following 1981, all Corvettes would be assembled in Bowling Green. When viewing our database, you will see the St. Louis built 1981's build numbers that begin with '4', where the Bowling Green built 1981's begin with '5'.
    Hope this answers your questions to some degree, until Bud can expand on the info.

    Default By the way.....

    80vettefan,

    Welcome to the Corvette Action Center!!

    Your Corvette has the unique claim of being among the last Corvettes produced in St Louis!! Here's a link to the 1980 Model Center Page here on the CAC.

    If you've a mind to, post a thread in the New Member Introduction Forum so more of the CAC folks can stop by and say hello.

    The short of it is.. The Registry is a place to document as many of the 1981 Corvettes as possible. Rob (the site owner / site Administrator) and I go back a few years and as the Corvette Action Center evolved and included a "Forum" to discussions and provide members with a place to help one another, Rob allowed the L81 VetteRegistry with a sub forum in the C3 Forums Section.

    As one of the older members (original first 10 or so) I encouraged the Registry members to join the Action Center. There are several hundred 1981 owners that frequent CAC and our Little slice of CAC is quite active .

    We are not any more special than any other year, with the exception of our dedication to the 1981 Corvette and our goal (as stated) is to provide "Documented History" of our 1981's along with supporting the Corvette Action Center.

    Why the "Special" attention to the 1981 Corvette?...... It's our members that make is Special

    Rare Corvette in this case is more of a nusiance to some because there are "Really Rare Corvettes" "Rare81" is the name I gave my 1981. I had many idea's but since my 1981 is 1 or 315 built with the UL5 option (Radio Delete) I decided on Rare81... Is it really a Rare Corvette I've heard from many that have their opinion, and it makes for good conversation Plus RARE81 fit on California Lic Plates and now Texas
