1979 Chevrolet Corvette Corvette
1979 L48 Corvette w/Pewter finish
Up for sale is my 1979 Vette with T-Tops. The car was bought almost exactly 4 years ago and is being sold AS IS. That doesn’t speak to the car’s condition but I am no garage guy so this car is likely best for a current vette/muscle car owner who knows how to upgrade cars quickly and efficiently if need be. I cannot provide in depth specifics on the guts of the car as it’s been a “weekend warrior only” the past four years and as I said prior I’m not a mechanic. That is why I’m offering the car at a ridiculously low price. I originally purchased the car from a private seller for 9K. I’m not putting ANY more money into it for any reason, all positives and negatives that I can vouch for over the past 4 years are listed below.
Family life and a change of address is forcing me to sell this car. It has driven great over the past 4 years with only a few issues along the way. It is a fantastic deal for a corvette and a perfect way to get out on the road for the summer asap. With a little bit of TLC put into the car it could easily be brought back to it’s original glory.
CAR MUST BE PICKED UP BY BUYER AND PAYMENT MUST BE RECEIVED WITHIN 3-5 DAYS DUE TO LOW SELLING PRICE
SERIOUS BUYERS PLEASE, I HAVE NO TIME FOR GAMES JUST HONEST BUYERS
The following list contains all the points that have been of major importance since purchasing the car in 2012. As stated above the car has driven great the last 4 years but not being a car enthusiast I have NOT dug into the guts of the car so I could not tell you anything too specific, other than it starts with no problem and makes for a great ride! If you do have any specific questions about the car then I will gladly do my best to answer them. I’m an honest seller with a great feedback rating so buy with confidence. The green section is for upgrades while the blue is for repair issues both past and present.
New radiator system installed in 2013 along with hoses/connectors
Some Electrical wiring fixed up/replaced within last 2 years
New mp3 ready radio installed last year
New front speakers installed for car radio
New brakes installed as of 2012
Headlights work fine
Car garage kept for last 4 years
Paint job is “pewter” or silver- paint is in very good condition except for a few chips here and there
Comes with both T-tops and they work perfectly
Tires are in very good condition to my knowledge and have not had a SINGLE problem with them the past 4 years
Solid engine performance, starts up perfectly with no issues
Temp/Oil/Battery etc gauges work fine
Some noticeable scratches on T-Tops (nothing that can’t be taken care of at a body shop if need be)
Recently had brakes bled due to car sitting in garage for a few months without major use (Vette owners surely know all about this)
Master cylinder was refilled after problem above, fluid was extremely low, brakes work ok now although a bit tighter than before
Speedometer NOT accurate and likely needs replacement- shows 20 mph ABOVE actual speed
Tachometer NOT functional- Needs repair OR replacement
Rear view mirror detached from window, new mirror needed
Air condition needs total work if owner wants to use it- I never had desire to so it was never even looked at
Power antennae works but disconnected to save on battery draws when car off
100K MILES ON TACHOMETER (such a number seems pretty accurate for a 37 year old car)
Driver side power window sticks near bottom/passenger side FINE
Its sad to see the car go but family life dictates your vehicle situation sometimes so I hope for the car to go to a good home- good luck!
