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

Vehicle Description

Gateway Classic Cars of Milwaukee is pleased to present this 1979 Chevrolet Corvette. Since it's debut in 1953 the Corvette has set the bar high for American made sports cars in terms of performance under the hood and on the road in terms of handling and this 79' is a prime example of how that is taken to the next level. This white beauty grabs your attention with the aggressive styling the late 70's had to offer from the lower front air dam to the duckbill style rear to a custom hood that imitates that found on a 68'.These looks are well backed up by a 383 stroker small block V8 that resides under the hood that makes its presence known with the choppy idle made by an aggressive cam that is complemented by the top notch parts put into the build. These features include aluminum cylinder heads that breath in through a polished dual pane intake manifold topped with a double pump Brawler carburetor; and it makes its exhale through a set of stainless block hugger style headers that go through a catless exhaust to complement the aggressive powertrains horsepower with adequate aggressive sound. The engine compartment is outfitted with some nice updates such as a 1-piece aluminum radiator with dual electric fans, a March engineering style front engine bracket that supports a serpentine belt system that replaces the primitive V-belt system that the car came withThe beastly powerplant is backed by a 4-speed manual transmission to add to the exhilarating experience of driving a true sports car. Sitting in the interior you will notice a custom set of digital gauges that offer a more modern look as well as improved accuracy on the readings over the outdated stepper motor style gauges the car had to offer in 79'. The Vette is equipped with power brakes and power windows making being in the drivers seat that much more of a pleasure and to top things off there is a once piece removable glass roof to let the air in but the car also comes with optional T-tops to give you options on how exactly you'd like to enjoy this quicker than quick C3. It would be a shame to pass on owning a one of a kind Corvette that truly embodies what the creation of the Corvette was all about so don't miss your chance to have this complement your driveway....and probably your house too.
