A deep blue exterior, loaded leather interior, a numbers-matching L82 V8, and an affordable price means you're going to have to act quickly if you want this restored 1979 Chevrolet Corvette in your garage.
Most late-70s Corvettes you see keep close to the '78 pace car's mute silver color scheme, but this one goes in a very different direction, and we love it. The bold Midnight Blue you see here is close to its original Dark Blue Metallic color, but you'll really notice the difference when you take this one out in the sunlight. The deep ocean of luster you get really highlights the investment that came during the restoration of this 'Vette. Paint this great is the exact reason why you want a later C3. Its cleaner design with the chrome-free front and rear add extra curves under the clearcoat shine. But as a true classic American, this coupe cannot help but have some brightwork. It makes those optional aluminum wheels true standouts.
Inside is a cool contrast to the dark exterior. The tan leather seats weigh less than previous year C3s, and they fold flush with the rear trunk area for better cargo functionality. Like any good Corvette of the era, this one comes loaded with power windows, cruise control, tilt/telescope wheel, electric rear defogger, and provisions for air conditioning. For the driver, you get a comfortable leather-wrapped three-spoke steering wheel, and just ahead are the essential gauges. In the center is a full auxiliary readout package, heat/defrost controls, gearstick, and power window controls. And while the window tinting keeps your brighter side hidden, anytime you want to show the world the great tan inside, you can go cruising around with the T-tops off.
The engine is the optional upgraded (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. Just like the rest of the car, the engine bay is highly detailed and very original – it's even still running a Quadrajet four-barrel carburetor! You should have no worries taking this to any of the events no matter how far away. After all, Corvettes are good for speed, but this one is a nice car for the long trips too. That's thanks to features like the TH350 three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, fully independent suspension and four-wheel disc brakes.
This one comes complete with a huge paperwork file that includes the build receipts, maintenance records, owner's manual, and a large restoration photo book so you can re-live this car's journey back to this stellar state. Don't miss your opportunity at a great looking classic at quite an affordable price. Call now!!
