Vehicle Description

1979 Chevrolet Camaro Berlinetta

2 owner vehicle with documentation of original purchase in Marion, NC. The vehicle has spent it's whole life in Western North Carolina. I purchased the car from the original owner in 2005. I have garaged the car during my time of ownership. The origional owner said he kept the car car-ported or garaged primarily. I have done some detailing and trim replacement with NOS GM parts to keep the car as original as I can.  The two typical items in older GM cars that do not age well, are the headliners (cloth), and the carpet (rear trans tunnel). The headliner was replaced by a local trim shop using the original backer. The carpet was replaced as well by myself. All other items in the interior are original, seats, trim, etc.. It is not common to find a 79 in this kind of condition and originality. For the six years I attended, it placed first in the stock category of "The F Body Gathering" in Atlanta, a yearly car show that was one of the largest gatherings of this platform of vehicle in the South East. It seems as though it's draw to most people, is the fact that it has been kept original to how GM made it.  While I will greatly miss the car, it is time to move to a new chapter in life. My hope is that the car go's to an owner that enjoys it as much as I have and will treat the car well for years to come. The car has a numbers matching 350ci V8, a numbers matching TH350 automatic transmission, power windows, manual locks, power steering, power brakes, and the original AM/FM radio with single dash speaker.  I have the original build sheet, sales documentation, original keys with with the original hang tag, car has never been smoked in, etc..  The car was also featured as one of the "Readers Rides" in the January 2008 edition of Camaro Performers magazine. While the car is not perfect, it is what I would consider a very nice example of a non-altered  very well taken care of "survivor".  If interested, or you have any questions about the car, please contact me.
