The last owner restored this corvette over the last 10 years. It originally came out of North Dakota. We drove it about an hour home. It is a really fun car to drive thanks to all the upgrades done by the last owner.
We changed the oil and filter and checked and lubed the chassis. We also replaced the power steering control valve, rear leaf spring bushings, 4 brake calipers, 4 sets of brake pads, 4 brake hoses, master cylinder, and much more.
The previous owner spent a bunch of money on this corvette replacing the seat covers, door panels, carpet, an repainting it in base coat clear coat.

1979 was the highest production year for the C3 generation of the corvette.
