For Sale: 1979 Chevrolet Corvette in Concord, North Carolina

Vehicle Description

This 1979 Chevrolet Corvette has its numbers-matching L-82 small block and its numbers-matching four-speed. Oh yes, you get the more powerful motor and the control of four-on-the-floor! And as you look over the total package you're going to see plenty more details that make this T-top coupe attractive for far more than its value price.

Corvettes look good in red. This was upgraded likely around the early 2000s, and the gloss has a right touch of age but still gives a nice glow in the sunshine. And that gloss also shows off the straightness of the body panels. That helps understand the overall quality of this package that certainly looks good when you're passing on the highway. The later C3s have nice details like the fastback profile and color-matched bumpers. At the same time, some keep the right classic details, like the Rally wheels. Plus, you have some fine custom touches like the quad exhaust tips and roses etched into the T-top glass to go with the rosy red paint.

The interior's white and grey two-tone color combo is a tasteful choice that adds distinction to the car. Plus, the seats fold flat forward giving you good access to the rear section for stowing the T-tops or just tossing in a weekend's worth of luggage. This was built to be a comfortable cruiser, and so you've got all the right premium features, like power windows, power locks, a tilt/telescopic wheel, and a full instrument package with large speedo and tach. There are some nice upgrades like an AM/FM/CD stereo and keyless entry.

Under the hood is the numbers-matching 350 cubic inch V8 with a four-barrel carb on top. This is the optional and more powerful L-82 unit. It looks great sitting in the engine bay with added flair by chrome air topper and Edelbrock valve covers. There is room for investment and improvement with the motor, and if you've worked with Chevy small blocks before, you know the potential is nearly limitless. But from day one you have a runner that knows how to live up to the classic Corvette feeling. It's mated to the numbers matching four-speed manual transmission to put you in full control over the power. And these Corvettes are great for performance driving with the fully independent suspension, power steering, and four-wheel power disc brakes.

There are details that you may want to address over time like upgrading the paint, repairing the air conditioning, or restoring/upgrading the motor. But a value price gives you the freedom to personalize your classic when you're ready, and a Corvette always means you have a distinct classic that has the best driving features around. That's why this deal is irresistible. Call now!
