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
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
