A timeless color combo, loaded interior, and a numbers-matching V8 with upgrades for added pep headline this value-priced 1979 Chevrolet Corvette.
A Corvette in red is a true icon. This one was given a respray of its factory-correct color later in life, so it keeps a nice shine that shows off the car's sleek and classic style. These later C3s were the chrome-free bodies where the bumpers and mirrors were color-matched, and so it looks particularly striking in glossy red. And there's an overall quality in this coupe seen in everything from the clean look of the aluminum wheels to the doors that cleanly close with confidence.
The black interior looks great against the red exterior, and so you'll love showing it off as you go cruising around with the T-tops out. The seats fold flat giving you good access to the rear section for stowing the T-tops or just tossing in a weekend's worth of luggage. That's good because this was built to be a road trip machine. It comes with great features like power windows, power locks, a tilt steering column, and provisions for factory air conditioning (will need servicing to blow cold again.) And the stereo has been upgraded to an AM/FM/CD unit with modern Bluetooth. The three-spoke sports steering wheel feels grippy in your hands, there's a large speedo and tach directly in front of you, and the full auxiliary gauge package is central at your eye-level.
Under the hood is the numbers-matching 350 cubic-inch V8. You can tell from the components and added shine that there have been some nice investments along the way. Plus, the upgraded high-rise intake goes with the four-barrel carburetor to let the V8 inhale deeper. And headers add power as this exhales through a newer Flowtech exhaust. The V8 fires up readily, runs strong, and shifts smoothly with the three-speed automatic transmission. And it's a great all-around driver with the fully independent sports suspension, power steering, and four-wheel power disc brakes.
Complete with owner's manual, this is an affordable Corvette with the right touches to make it a sharp looker and a solid cruiser. So don't miss a great driver's classic. Call today!!!
