Seven Hills Motorcars is proud to offer this numbers matching 1979
Corvette in spectacular condition with only 19,310 original miles.
This Corvette looks excellent, runs great, and is an amazing
driver. The car is totally solid with excellent lines. It is
finished in the beautiful and highly desirable color combination of
Silver (13) over Oyster Leather (122). This is the correct and
original color scheme as verified by the codes on the trim tag
pictured in this ad.
I have personally driven this car over 20 miles. During that time
that car was completely reliable, has no issues, and was a true
pleasure to drive.
Besides the correct paint and trim codes, this Corvette is "Numbers
Matching" meaning the engine and transmission in the car are the
correct and original units that were installed in the car new at
the factory in 1979. Even very detailed parts like the distributor,
carburetor, intake, and even all the windows are all date coded and
original. The last six digits of the VIN, 409305, are stamped on
the engine pad, which is pictured in this ad, and the engine is
original to the car. The transmission is also original with the
last six digits of the VIN stamped on the main case and
This Corvette is ready to be used and enjoyed. We have this car
priced to sell and are offering an excellent opportunity to own a
clean corvette at an unbeatable value. One could easily buy this
car now and sell it for more than the purchase price in years to
come as the market on C3 Corvettes is very hot right now and on the
rise. The low original mileage is verified not only by the
condition of the car, but also the clear Ohio title, pictured in
this ad, showing the mileage as "Actual." Please peruse all of the
photos, video, list of numbers, and other information to get a true
sense of how clean and nice this Corvette really is.
As a side note, this Corvette is not a dealer auction vehicle. We
hand-pick each car after careful inspection. Our Corvettes come
from owners who expect their car to go to someone that will give
the vehicle the same care and attention as they did. We invite and
encourage you to examine the car in person or have the car
inspected. Please take the time to scrutinize each picture. We
photograph each vehicle to the greatest extent so you can feel
confident about your purchase. If you have a question about the
Corvette, just give us a call.
The Silver (13) exterior is in excellent condition. As one can see
in the photos the paint has a terrific gloss, deep shine, and
smooth finish. Both doors open and shut nicely. The N90 aluminum
wheels have a brilliant finish and no curb rash. The BF Goodrich
Radial TA tires have 90% tread left and are correctly sized
225/70R15. There are no major imperfections that have been
intentionally excluded from the many photos. As one can see in the
many photos of the underside of the car, it is very clean
underneath. We have included specific photos of the areas most
prone to rust to show how nice this car looks.
Window Date Codes
Please note that ALL of the glass on this Corvette is date coded
and original as each piece predates the car's body build date of
C31, which is October 31 1978 so this car was produced on
Halloween. Original glass is a good indication that this car has
had no major accident history and never sustained significant
This car looks just as good in person as it does in the photos.
The Oyster Leather (122) interior in this Corvette is in absolutely
outstanding condition. The seats look excellent with no rips,
holes, or split seams. The seats are not overly worn in typical
area on the bolster where the driver gets in and out. The gauge
faces are crisp and clean and the lenses are clear. The carpet is
in great condition throughout with no stains or holes. The dash and
console look awesome with no cracks or sun fading. The door panels
are in great shape overall. The door pulls are solid and intact.
The original stereo radio sounds good. Most importantly, the dash
has never been cut or modified for an aftermarket installation. The
jack and jack handle are still with the car, stored correctly
behind the passenger seat as seen in the photos. The original spare
is also still with the car and appears to have never been used.
This Corvette has never been smoked in; there are no burn marks and
no aroma of cigarettes. The original T-Tops bags are also included
with the car.
Corvette interiors from this era are not known to wear well over
the years, especially for a light color like Oyster, and the
excellent condition of this interior is a huge testament to the
meticulous care and attention this car has received throughout its
This Corvette seems to be in very good mechanical condition. As
stated above I have driven this car over 20 miles with no issues at
all. The number matching engine starts right away every time, runs
well, and idles smooth. It drives amazing on the road and at
highway speeds. In the video in this ad one can observe the car
accelerating on the highway up to about 70mph, shifting through all
the gears, braking to stoplight, and going through some curves.
Please note that there are no strange noises or vibrations and the
car performs quite well overall. The transmission shifts well
throughout the power band. The brakes are responsive and do not
pull to one side or the other. There is no blue smoke when starting
or driving the car. The car runs cool and does not overheat. This
Corvette has plenty of power and is quite fast. Also, the engine
compartment is beautifully clean and detailed as one can see in the
photos, the original ignition shielding is still in place.
The stereo radio works as do all the exterior lights, interior
lights, indicators, horn, wipers, and power windows. All of the
gauges work and even the clock runs. Even very detailed items such
as the spare tire light, interior delay light timer, and key buzzer
all still work. The blower for the heater and air conditioning
works on all speeds. The a/c also works and blows cold. One can
observe the a/c compressor clicking on and engaging properly in the
video. The vacuum system for the headlights works correctly, the
headlights go up quickly and with no binding in the mechanism.
Also, the headlights go up properly with either the headlight
switch or vacuum override switch under the column. Their complete
operation from both switches can be viewed in the video below. Not
enough can be said as to how much of a pleasure it is to drive this
car, especially with the T-tops out on a beautiful day.
Overall, this 1979 Corvette is in absolutely outstanding condition.
The low mileage, the beautiful color combination, and the excellent
overall condition make this Corvette particularly desirable and
very hard to duplicate. Numbers matching is very important in the
Corvette market and in Corvette pricing and as one can see this car
is very correct. There are photos in this ad of the VIN stamp on
the engine block, suffix code, and engine assembly date as well as
the transmission VIN stamp and assembly date. This Corvette always
gets a ton of attention driving down the road. It is apparent that
the vehicle has been well taken care of by its previous owners. The
prices of C3 Corvettes have increased considerably over the past
several years. They are secure and wise investments for a
collector. One could easily enjoy this vehicl...for more
