979 CHEVROLET CORVETTE
The Chevrolet Corvette (C3) was a sports car that was produced by
Chevrolet for the 1968 through 1982 model years. Engines and
chassis components were mostly carried over from the previous
generation, but the body and interior were all new.
The stunning red/red restored 1979 Chevrolet Corvette we have here
at Adventure Classics saw the return of the crossed-flag emblems as

replicas, the new bucket seats, the front and rear spoiler package,

on Grand Prix Performance GT raised white letter tires mounted on
the factory Corvette styled wheels, with a great exhaust note
emanating from the true dual exhaust system tips in the rear.

seats that were made standard equipment in 1979. The new seats have

area, and the seat pair resulted in a weight reduction of about 24

factory red dash with all the controls and gauges including the
tachometer, red leather Corvette steering wheel, great red door
panels and carpet, and the 4-speed manual shifter in the center
The red paint looks great over the Corvette's sleek body and L-48
emblem adorned hood with the rocker panels painted black, front and
rear spoilers were offered as an option and functionally the
spoilers decrease drag by about 15% and increased fuel economy by
about a half-mile per gallon.
