Regardless of whether Black and Tan is your favorite drink, it's going to be your favorite classic. This 1979 Chevrolet Corvette has all the right features, including low mileage, a loaded A/C interior, four-on-the-floor, and its numbers-matching L82 V8.

As you look at the whole car, you'll see it's the kind of classic that was built for driving. So the exterior presentation is done right. The black paint was an upgrade later in life. It's a sleek finish that looks good in the sunshine, but it's nothing too fancy that would make you afraid to take it out on the road. If you're really looking for a show-stopper, it doesn't take much with this one, because all your favorite lines of the C3 body are looking crisp and clean. And the reason for panels that are so classic and clean likely lies with the fact that this car has averaged less than 1,200 miles annually. So you get the details you love - everything from the L82 badge on the cowl hood to the optional alloy wheels.

Light tan interiors have a timelessly attractive contrast against a deep black exterior. So you'll love driving this one with the T-tops out just to let everyone see the full color combo. It's also a good-looking total package that has plenty of originality mixed with the right upgrades. In fact, we have a $650+ receipt from 2021 investing in quality details, like the steering column and door handles. It's loaded with great features, like power windows, the Delco AM/FM stereo, cup holders, and R134a air conditioning. The well-bolstered leather bucket seats, tilt/telescopic steering column, full gauge package, and bright shifter are all part of that driver-ready setup that speaks directly to your enthusiast's heart.

The engine is the optional and numbers-matching L82 350 cubic-inch V8. This higher compression motor was a must-have for the performance fans in 1979 because it offered 15% more horsepower than the standard Corvette V8. We have a long list of receipts proving years of proper care, and so you have an extensive list of the right fundamental care while still keeping quite a stock style. And the four-speed manual transmission puts you in full control over this solid powerhouse. Add in the fully independent suspension, power steering, and the four-wheel power disc brakes, and you know this is the right car to have classic looks but modern moves.

The sale comes complete with title documentation and maintenance records. This is the classic Corvette that was made to be enjoyed to the fullest. So if you love an icon made for driving, call today!
