Attentive care and proper sheltering at the hands of a long term owner have left this 1979 Chevrolet Corvette looking awfully sharp for a car that's provided four decades of service. It's running and sounding strong as well and features abundant curb appeal via the flowing design that characterized the third generation of 'Vettes.
It makes an impression right away, with its eye-catching white paint still in good form - there are no dents or dings of any consequence on board and the deep shine that comes from a very strong clearcoat becomes evident even from a distance. Debuting toward the tail end of its generation, this '79 had the benefit of a dozen years of refinements lavished upon its predecessors and holds a substantial level of curb appeal. It's an aerodynamic looking ride, with great styling cues nearly everywhere, from the shark like front end to the flowing rear fenders and compact spoiler on the deck lid. The sloping rear windshield adds to its futuristic look while providing outstanding visibility, and its T-Top configuration, with mirrored panels that fit really well and seal tightly, is a big plus - open air driving whenever you want it, with easily installed protection from the elements when you don't. The still-fresh appearance of this Chevy reflects the substantial amount of down time it's obviously spent under shelter - besides the clean condition of the paint, its collection of cabin glass and badging is still in top form.
The Oyster-colored interior remains in almost entirely original configuration and years of respectful treatment have allowed it to emerge from 40 years of service in pretty impressive aesthetic shape, with contoured leather buckets that provide plenty of support to hold you in place while canyon-carving and free of the marked wear you'd expect in a car of this age. Some well-focused attention will elevate this interior to a top-tier driving environment. The thorough array of factory gauges in the cluster extends to the center console, situated above the added Hurst shifter to carry on the model's tradition of offering extensive instrumentation. While a few of the displays will require a "going over" to get back online, the overall presentation of the dash area is still pretty impressive - everything on board is clear and readable and a dash pad free of any cracking spans the width of the cabin. An aftermarket AM/FM/CD stereo replaces its factory issue counterpart to provide your tunes while behind the wheel.
This classic features a road-ready drivetrain that's well-positioned to get the good times on the road started just as soon as you get it home. Raise the lengthy hood and you'll find a 350 cubic inch V8 armed with a 4-barrel carb sitting inside the engine compartment, dressed in an Edelbrock chrome air cleaner and matching valve covers. The engine fires up promptly and teams with a 4-speed manual transmission for a compelling "hands on" driving experience while sending a smooth note out of the aftermarket headers leading to a dual exhaust. Power disc brakes at all four corners and smooth power steering make this 'Vette an easy navigator that will come to a prompt stop when called for as it cruises on its set of 15" stock Corvette wheels, wrapped with Grand Prix Performance GT tires.
This 1979 Chevrolet Corvette offers the opportunity to own a well-equipped and smooth running version of Chevy's American sports car and its striking vintage appearance is thoroughly intact. Call today!
