1979 Chevrolet Corvette
Throughout time the Corvette has managed to keep its own unique look that is different from anything else out there. This is probably a big part of why these sports cars are so popular. Some like them all, some just one generation but either way pretty much everyone out there has a favorite. The version you see here is a C3 which were being produced from 1968 up until 1982. The car has undergone a mechanical restoration with cosmetic repairs as needed resulting in a very nice looking and driving classic. The car has a nice a finish and is coated in dark Black paint which works with the body lines well creating a very clean look. The front spoiler is nicely mounted in place and along with the bumper guards is painted Black to match. Sport mirrors are in place on both sides and are also painted Black. The car is pictured without T-tops but does come with them. Aluminum wheels are in place under all four corners with Yokohama tires.
These cars were originally shipped out with a 185hp motor but this classic has just been fitted with a brand new 350V8 320hp crate engine professionally built by Performance Unlimited who were actually featured on the Two Guys Garage television show. It has been dressed up with a few chrome add-ons but most importantly it runs extremely well utilizing a MSD 6AL Ignition, MSD Pro Billet distributor, Edelbrock 1406 600cfm carburetor, Edelbrock Performer intake, 4 bolt main, a light cam, ceramic coated headers and all new custom exhaust. It has a great sound and rolls down the road well. In addition to getting a new crate motor all of the mechanics were gone through with multiple components being replaced or repaired as needed. Other new parts include the alternator, starter, plugs/wires and the rear end was just rebuilt and changed to 3:73 gears. Backing up the motor is a a new 700R4 transmission. Other nice features contributing to how nicely it drives include the Gymkhana suspension, new shocks, new bushings, power brakes, power steering, cruise control and air conditioning. The car comes with invoices for all the work done and the invoice for the new motor. Within the past 500 miles the car has easily had $15,000 invested into it.
The interior of the car is done in all Black and has brand new carpeting. The upholstery is in good shape with dual high back bucket seats sitting nicely in place. The original console is there with the original style emergency brake and shifter set up. All of the instruments and dash have been kept mostly original except for the addition of the brand new Kenwood stereo with bluetooth, Pandora radio, IHeartRadio, USB, Iphone/Android compatibility, Aux port, and remote control. The speakers were also replaced to insure they deliver a great sound. The power windows and power locks still work properly with no electrical issues throughout the car.
This is one smooth vette that is being offered up at a great price.
