1979 Chevrolet Corvette
after many years it has come time to sell our vette gearing up for college. This 1979 vette has been a garage queen and Sunday driver. we usually only drive it to local car shows and cruise in's. Numbers matching. 71K original miles. 350 v8. 3 speed automatic transmission. It has always been in top shape but this winter wedecided to put it in the shopgetting it ready for a new owner. if your a collector you know the seal expand and dry from sitting long periods of time. We had a long list of stuff done but here is most of it.
new felpro silicone oil pan gasket. transmission taken out and resealed. changed over to an aluminum pan to dissipate heat better. power steering ram and actuator rebuilt all new power steering hoses. all new air conditioning hoses. new brake hoses. new felpro valve cover gaskets.new sway bar suspension. new shocks. new heat bypass valve new speedo cables. new speedo bullet and gear. all gauge lights have been replaced with LED. new light switch and control switches.new quite flow exhaust mufflers. It still has a nice rumble but not gaudy loud. I have probably left out some stuff.
serial numbers were documented. removable T-Tops. the paint is incredible It has several layers of clear coat with about 10 coats of mequires show car wax. It looks like it is under water. tires are in great condition. original rally wheels. comes with a wolf lockable cover. absolute blast to drive. these late model C3 are gaining in value. This car has reached the 35 and no longer has to be inspected in NC.. This is a cat delete car. I have title in hand for easy transaction. If your looking for a nice C3 then this is for you. If your looking for one that has been mod'd and monkey'd up then this is not it. serious buyers can email me if you want to see more detailed pictures. we have photos of the crank up to the Rochester carb.
Since it has T-Tops I have not had the air conditioning system charged with Freon. I have no need for air conditioning. the lines are new the system works and the compressor kicks on but if it needs anything else I do not know. thereare a couple cracks in the original dash that should be professionally filled. no big deal but it is on my bucket list as the next thing.
you can also email me to set up a time to see the car in person.
