A deep black exterior, loaded leather A/C interior, a numbers-matching L82 V8, and a ton recently invested in this coupe means you're going to have to act quickly if you want this restored 1979 Chevrolet Corvette in your garage.

This coupe is bold with a sinister black paintjob that's slick enough to look like it just slips through the night. The paint's amazing gloss and deep shine is part of a $23K investment over the last few years that has made this Corvette one stellar package. The low mileage (averaging less than 1,500 miles annually) means you know this one has been a cherished toy and not a daily driver. In fact, we know the majority of its life was spent in a climate-controlled garage. These late C3 cars are gaining a nice following as people begin to appreciate the features like the sporty front air dam, optional D80 rear spoiler, and clean chrome-free body. But there is still room for a touch of brightwork. This factory all-black appearance helps highlight accessory items on this one like the bright exhaust tips, rocker panel caps, and optional aluminum wheels.

Inside is a cool contrast to the dark exterior. The Oyster leather seats weigh less than previous year C3s, and they fold flush with the rear trunk area for better cargo functionality. But what really has your attention is their condition. This entire interior was redone in the restoration, and so not only is this the factory-correct color, but also it looks as fresh as if you were picking it up from the St. Lois factory today. This one comes loaded with power windows, tilt/telescope wheel, and an upgraded JVC AM/FM/CD stereo with modern controls for Bluetooth and iPods. For the driver, you get a comfortable leather-wrapped three-spoke steering wheel. Just ahead of that is a large speedo and tach, and all the auxiliary gauges you'll need are mounted high in the center of the dash. Anytime you want to show the world the great bright inside, you can go cruising around with the T-tops off. And thanks to modern R134a air conditioning, you can do this all year long without breaking a sweat.

When you peek under the hood, you can tell there has been a lot of care to add plenty of show-worthy shine without spoiling the vintage atmosphere. And that's a good thing, because you're looking at the original numbers-matching L-82 powerplant. This optional 350 cubic-inch V8 gave a 15% jump in horsepower, and plenty of that head-snapping torque that these small blocks are famous for delivering. There has been a solid investment of over $5K in in the motor and drivetrain within the last 100 miles. You can call for all the details, but just know that this one fires up easily, idles smoothly, and pulls with the kind of authority you expect from a Corvette. And with its fully independent sports suspension, three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and four-wheel disc brakes, this one will take you to car shows near and far with a big grin on your face. This car has also recently had the exhaust system replaced so it shouldn't have any issues passing a smog test if your state requires.

The sale includes build receipts, maintenance records, and the owner's manual. This is an all-around stellar package that will be a hit at the events – it's even already a multiple-award winner. It recently won the C3 class at the 2017 Nashville Corvette Club car show. So at a price this affordable, you know you need to hurry if you want this total package C3 in your garage. Call today!!!
