Vehicle Description

979 CHEVROLET CORVETTE

History

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 well as three popular features introduced on the '78 pace car replicas, the new bucket seats, the front and rear spoiler package, and the roof panels.

Mechanical

The engine in our Vette is the base L-48 engine which generated 195 horsepower. Output for all engines increased due to new "open flow" mufflers. The dual-snorkel air intake introduced on L-82 cars the previous year was now fitted to all cars including ours. It connects to the front with tubes to bring a fresh supply of air at all times.

The engine looks as it did new from the factory with its correct blue painted engine block, intake, and factory valve covers, four-barrel carb, ignition shielding, power steering and power disc brakes, air conditioning and all other factory parts looking stock as well.

Our 79 Vette is shifted by a 4-speed manual transmission and rides 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.

Interior

The striking red interior features the new lightweight "high back" seats that were made standard equipment in 1979. The new seats have better side bolster, provide easier access to the rear storage area, and the seat pair resulted in a weight reduction of about 24 pounds.

It has a great stereo system with its Pioneer Stereo AM-FM radio, 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 console.

Exterior

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.

The roof T-tops are painted a matching red body make an open air ride a reality when they are stored in the cargo area underneath the rear window.
