Here's an interesting take on a 1979 Chevrolet Corvette. This pristine low mileage car keeps close to factory specs, right down to the numbers matching V8, but a few well-placed upgrades makes this a superior sports coupe.

Corvette owners know how to keep their cars well maintained, so it's no surprise how pure the factory shade of Classic White still looks on this car. The exceptionally low mileage (averaging less than 1,300 miles per year) means you know this one has spent a life as a cherished toy and not a daily driver. These late C3 cars are gaining a nice following, as people begin to appreciate the features like the distinct spoiler, and clean chrome-free body. This helps highlight accessory items on this one like the bright exhaust tips and optional aluminum wheels.

The fantastic red interior looks exceptionally fresh because it was recently redone back to factory standards. This includes the leather seats and carpeting just to make sure this one feels as premium as possible. In fact, like any good Corvette, this one comes loaded with power windows, power locks, cruise control, tilt/telescope wheel, electric rear defogger, and provisions for air conditioning. The AM/FM stereo is so original it still plays 8-tracks... but just so you can have more modern tunes, a CD changer was discreetly installed. For the driver, there's a wood and chrome three-spoke steering wheel. Beyond that is the large speedometer and tachometer in front, and a full gauge package prominently to the side. And you can show this fantastic interior to the world as you go cruising around with the T-tops off.

The 350 cubic-inch L48 motor is the one installed by Chevrolet in 1979, but you can tell from one look at the engine bay that this V8 has received a few key upgrades. It has been given new performance parts that includes a Holley 750 CFM four-barrel carburetor, aluminum intake, roller rockers, Chevrolet performance valve covers, electronic ignition, and headers. This V8 is now substantially more powerful than when it left the factory in '79, and the sound is significantly sweeter out of the new dual exhaust with performance X-pipe construction. More than just a recent engine upgrade, the suspension, tires, brakes have all been freshly redone. This is the kind of Corvette you can have confidence in driving fast, but it also is a nice car for the long trips, too. That's thanks to features like the TH350 three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and four-wheel disc brakes.

All Corvettes are fun, but this one takes everything that's great about Chevy's personal sports car and amps up the testosterone, all at a bargain price. There's a lot of documentation including the original dealer invoice, Factory buildsheet, bill of sale, and restoration receipts. So it's a great-looking deal on a coupe with all of the vital pieces that Corvette people look for. Call today!!
