EXCELLENT BLACK PAINT, L82 350 V8, TH350, PWR WIN/LOCKS, CRUISE, TILT, ETC, NICE
This 1979 Chevrolet Corvette is a factory black-on-black coupe that has been kept to exceptionally low mileage. Even with all this appeal, and features like the L82 V8, this superior sports coupe is still surprisingly affordable.
Most late-70s Corvettes you see keep close to the '78 pace car's mute silver color scheme, but this one has always gone in a very different direction. This coupe is bold with a sinister black paintjob that's slick enough to look like it just slips through the night. The exceptionally low mileage (averaging less than 800 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 sporty front air damn, distinct rear spoiler, and clean chrome-free body. This all factory black appearance helps highlight accessory items on this one like the bright exhaust tips and optional aluminum wheels. And boy, does this black shine too!
Such low mileage means little seat time, and so the interior's exceptional appearance should be no surprise. The black 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 this era, this one comes loaded with power windows, power locks, cruise control, tilt/telescope wheel, AM/FM cassette stereo, electric rear defogger, and provisions for air conditioning. For the driver, there's a comfortable leather-wrapped three-spoke steering wheel. Beyond that is the large speedometer and tachometer in front, and a full gauge package prominently to the side. And when you want to show the world that your interior is as fantastically black as the exterior, 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 chrome 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, and four-wheel disc brakes.
This factory-correct, all-black coupe is the perfect way to get an affordable 'Vette with killer looks as aggressive as the best of them. Call today!!
