For Sale: 1979 Chevrolet Corvette in Lavergne, Tennessee

$15,995

Vehicle Description

A great black/white appearance, loaded leather interior, a numbers matching L82 V8, and an affordable price means you're going to have to act quickly if you want this 1979 Chevrolet Corvette in your garage.


Most late-70s Corvettes you see keep close to the '78 pace car's mute silver color scheme, but this one goes in a very different direction. This coupe is bold with a sinister black paintjob that looks like it just slips through the night. These late C3 cars are gaining a nice following as people begin to appreciate the features like the sporty front air dam, distinct rear spoiler, and clean chrome-free body. But as a true classic American, this coupe cannot help but have some brightwork. It makes those optional aluminum wheels true standouts, especially since they have knock-off spinners in the center for added flair.


Inside is a cool contrast to the dark exterior. The white leather seats weigh less than previous year C3s, and they fold flush with the rear trunk area for better cargo functionality. Like any good Corvette of the era, this one comes loaded with power windows, power locks, cruise control, tilt/telescope wheel, electric rear defogger, and provisions for air conditioning. There's even an upgrade to a modern clarion AM/FM/CD stereo. For the driver, you get a comfortable leather-wrapped three-spoke steering wheel. Beyond that is the large speedometer and tachometer package in front, and a full gauge package prominently to the side. While the window tinting keeps your brighter side hidden, anytime you want to show the world the great white inside, you can go cruising around with the T-tops off.


Dual snorkels on the air cleaner are a quick sign that this is an L-82, and with 225 horsepower, it was a stout performer in 1979. Even today the solid whack of torque will get your heart racing on the street. It starts quickly and idles easily with a nice V8 burble out of the dual exhaust that never gets old. It will be a hit at the car shows simply because Corvette people love seeing an original-looking engine bay that's so clean you could serve lunch on the air cleaner. You'll should have no worries taking this to any of the events no matter how far away. After all, Corvettes are good for speed, but this one is a nice car for the long trips too. That's thanks to features like the TH350 three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, fully independent suspension and four-wheel disc brakes.


A beautiful black outside and a terrific white inside make for a very unique and attractive package. This is an affordable 'Vette with killer looks as aggressive as the best of them. Call today!!!
