1979 Chevrolet Corvette L82

We are selling this car for a longtime customer and friend Ron Cameron. I personally have done a ton of work to the vehicle and can vouch for the awesome condition of the car inside and out both cosmetically and mechanically. Ron would bring the car in for me to work on and my last real job where I was the lead tech at Luper automotive and came with me when I ventured out on my own starting the business I currently own "Rotten Leonard's Jalopy Shop"
Wonderfully cared for example of an 1979 L82 Corvette. Current owner (3rd) has had the car since 1999 and has kept immaculate care of the car since.
The car has been always garage kept, with all maintenance and repairs done professionally. Impecable service records have been kept in a 3 ring binder with all other related documentation.
Some things that make this car special are the mirrored T-top Glass, this is an expensive feature. Also the 4 speed Super T10 transmission was not very common in '79. The owner is going to include his Spec and assembly manuals he has collected. If you would like he has hung onto the AIR pump and original distributor. The Catalytic Converter has been removed.
Some notable repairs are as follows, (this is a very small sample of the maintenance on the car, all records will be included with the car)
7/2004 42,109 miles Remover rear differential, resealed also replaced lower control arm bushings.
9/2005 42,629 miles Removed and Resealed power steering pump
6/2006 42,765 Miles Remover and overhauled Rochester Carburetor
9/2007 43,538 Miles Resealed both the oil pan, rear main seal and timing cover, replaced the harmonic balancer, replaced the thermostat.6/2008 43,653 Miles Replaced Clutch, sent flywheel to be surface ground, rebuilt shifter.
10/2010 44,343 Miles Removed Center Gauge Cluster, replace oil pressure gauge and all illumination bulbs.
7/2018 45,875 Miles Replaced A/C Compressor, Drier and converted to R134A
Body wise the car has beautifully preserved original paint with only minor touch-ups done by Ron Lee (if you are from the northwest you will of heard of Ron Lee and his outstanding reputation) including headlight door chip repairs, wiper covers have been repainted as well as much better than factory paint on the steering column and air cleaner. the carpet has been replace as well as the door and T-Top weatherstripping. The seats have been replaced completely with very nice reproductions with very soft white leather from Corvette Central. Heat, A/C and Lights all work as they should. Under the car there is virtually no corrosion as the car has always been garage kept and fair weather driven! The car has been serviced and is ready for a summer of fun!
The car has been in the local area since new being originally sold at Barnett Thompson in Orofino Idaho,
