This 1979 Corvette is not only a super nice one but extremely flashy. The car is an original yellow one and that color was the rarest in 1979. In fact out of 53,807 built that year only 2,357 were painted this color. That figure does not break down how many with the black interior as this one as there were other choices for the interior color. In my opinion the yellow with the black leather combination is the best! The paint finish on this car is show quality. Redone in 2014 and no flaws showing. The doors all fit nice and the hood gaps are just like they should be. The entire car was redone nicely except the paint on the door jambs were left alone and all visible GM decals and stickers are still intact. The inner hood lip was resprayed and looks nice. The overall car is one of the nicest examples of a 1979 you will find. Most original survivors with the original paint need to be redone. The paint was lacquer back in those days and even if kept inside the finish is just not like this one. You really must see this car in person to appreciate the quality of the paint. The body on the car is and was virgin and untouched to the best of our knowledge. The window glass is all original to the car. The front and rear bumpers are the original ones and have plenty of flex in them. No stress cracking that I am aware of. The T-tops are painted ones and fit nicely and are easy to remove and put back on. The car does have a newer replacement catalytic converter and mufflers at some time ago. The chassis on the car has not been undercoated and mostly original except for the exhaust system, hocks, rakes, tc. The brake calipers were replaced at the time of the paint job. The frame is nice and solid. Even the gas tank is not showingsigns of rust or corrosion. The spare tire compartment was removed and cleaned and does still have the original spare, ack and lug wrench.
The interior of the car is mostly all original and in excellent shape as you can see in the photos. The seats are in great shape along with the door panels and dash assembly. The carpet is even original and surprisingly in good condition. The floor mats have been replaced and all gauges have been removed and cleaned of any dust behind the lenses. About the only non-original item is the radio as it is an aftermarket Kenwood am/fm cassette player. The center console was not cut as the aftermarket radio fits nicely into the original slot with just a faceplate cover over the radio. The speakers have been replaced and the sound is nice. The steering wheel hasnot collapsed and the leather is as new. The instruments still have the color in them and not faded. All interior plastic trim pieces are in great shape and the original seat belts are there. We did replace a few screws, ill plates and the plastic center console to finish the interior out as new. The courtesy lights work and all instrument lights work.
The engine compartment is detailed out as original. This was only a cosmetic detail. We did replace the hoses, alve cover gaskets, nd carburetor was removed and cleaned. Even the choke on the carburetor still works properly. The fan blade and a few other items were just refinished to look nice. No restoration needed just some refreshing to give it the look as if just rolled of the assembly line. The engine runs out smooth and runs out impressive. No rattles and wind noise when the windows are rolled up. Heater works great. Air conditioning works as well. This is a corvette that not only show but can be driven as well. I would not be afraid to take this car on a road trip if so desired. We did service the car, il change and filter and installed a correct A/C PF25 white oil filter, hanged the rear end grease, ransmission fluid changed and new pan gasket, nd the antifreeze was also flushed and changed. You should not need to do anything to this one but enjoy and drive. However, ith that said they are still older cars and need to be maintained, erviced, nd looked at on occasion to maintain everything in working order. The battery also has a quick disconnect switch.
Documentation includes a copy of the original dealer invoice, indow sticker, riginal EPA fuel economy label, riginal owners manual, riginal pre-delivery checklist sheet, riginal vin # labels for warranty back in the day, ll brochures that were included in the owners manual bag including consumer information, aintenance schedule, rochure on chemical paint spotting, nd the original plastic bag the owners manual came in. I do also haveoriginal service receipts back in the day when the car was serviced, sales brochure, ssembly manual and some other information pertaining to the 1979 model year. The car does have both original t-top storage bags, riginal spare tire lock, nd the jack and lug wrench. The rear storage strap for the T-tops is also there. Nicely documented car that sold new in Illinois.

1979 wasthe last year for the 140 M.P.H. speedometer and in late 79 some corvettes were built with 85 mph ones. This was also the first production year for the new "High Back" seat style that was introduced in the 1978 pace car replicas only and became standard equipment in 1979. Extensiveuse of plastic in the frame structure resulted in weight reduction of about twelve pounds per seat. The new seats had better side bolster support, nd the backs folded at a higher point to permit easier rear storage access. Inertia locking mechanisms restrained the backs in sudden deceleration, egating the need for manual locks. Driver and passenger seat tracks were redesigned for an additional inch of forward travel. Tungsten-halogen headlight beams were phased into 1979 production early in the production year forincreased visibility. Output for both engines offered in 1979 increased by 5 h.p. due to a new "open flow' muffler design. Also the L-48 included theL-82's low restriction, ual snorkel air intake to the engine adding another 5 h.p. as well.
