Note: This 1979 Corvette is still the original factory Dark Green color which is one of the rarest of the color choices for that year as far as production numbers go. There were only 2,426 made in this Dark Green color which is the 2nd rarest color with the rarest being Bright Yellow (2,357 made). This compares to the most popular color Black (10,465 made) so the Dark Green color is over 4 times as rare as the black 1979 models. And comparing overall numbers the Dark Green model was only 4.5% of the total 1979 Corvette production.
Doors lock and key works.
Both headlight and openers work. The left headlight lid stayed up after turning off the headlights and then it went down after fooling with it.
Window, seat adjust and door locks are manual.
Rip in driver seat that maybe can be seen in picture.
Driving it this week a few times when it comes to a stop it wants to choke off – will ask previous owner on that.
Clock does work as the red 2nd hand does turn around.
Blower for heat and air seems it to try work but doesn’t blow out.
Glove box opens and closes normal.
Battery Age will find out.
Wipers making noise but not sure if we’re turning on correctly. Will ask previous owner.
Right side rear side marker running light not coming on…probably a bulb. All others appear to be working and on.
Took several pictures of undercarriage which we can email and there isno bad or even mediumsurface rust anywhere. Just normal light surface rust here and there.
Paint is not oxidized. See nice pictures that were taken after wash and hand buff.
Tachometer does work with only 63,804 original miles.
