For Sale: 1979 Chevrolet Corvette in O'Fallon, Illinois

Vehicle Description

Gateway Classic Cars of Atlanta is proud to present this 1979 Chevrolet Corvette C3. The Corvette is as American as apple pie. With over 60 years of production and eight design changes the Corvette has withstood the test of time. In 1953 the first Corvette rolled off the assembly line becoming the most popular sports car in history. The excitement continues as the first mid-engine Corvette rolled of the assembly line in 2020. 1979 was a big year for the Corvette with almost 40,000 units sold. 1979 saw the crossed-flag emblems on the nose and fuel door revert to those seen on the '77 model. Three popular features introduced on the '78 pace car replicas made it into this year's production: the new bucket seats, the front and rear spoiler package, and the glass roof panels. The new lightweight "high back" seats were made standard equipment. The new seats had better side bolster, provided easier access to the rear storage area, and the seat pair resulted in a weight reduction of about 24 pounds. Tungsten-halogen high-beam headlights became standard as did an AM-FM radio, and for the first time a cassette tape player could be added as a $234 option. Powering this 1979 Chevrolet Corvette is a L-82 350 cubic inch V8 backed by a automatic transmission. Options on this 1979 Chevrolet Corvette C3 include: Air Conditioning, AM/FM Radio, Cassette Player, T-Tops, Power Brakes, Power Steering, Power Windows, Tilt Wheel, Seat Belts, and Raised White Letter Tires. This 1979 Chevrolet Corvette C3 is being offered by our Atlanta Showroom and can be seen in greater detail including 100+ HD pictures and an HD video at www.GatewayClassicCars.com.
