1979 Chevrolet Corvette Leather

Great opportunity to own a classic C-3 Corvette L-82, 5.7L at a fraction of it's value!

This is a INDIANA car that was in a family for a long period of time. Father purchased car and enjoyed it for years. He passed it down to his Son who enjoyed it as well. Time passed on and the car was parked in the Barn over the Winter months. As the years went by, the car ended up spending most of it's time in the barn versus on the road. The family business took priorities. The last time the car was used was 2012. The car was parked outside the barn and the Son backed into it with his Pick Up. Dented the Left Rear Quarter. Repairs have been made. The Quarter is in Black Primer !

Fast forward to 2018, Father has been diagnosed with Stage 4, Son will be assuming the family business and Farm operation. With no interest in the Corvette, time to pass it on to a good home. The car is priced well below market value so that WISH can become reality.

The car quite frankly, needs to be gone through. Items that are general maintenance: Brakes, Hoses, Belts, Tires, Shocks, Filters, Plugs, Etc. would need to be addressed. The car Runs & Drives, but to be confident, would strongly state that these items be replaced. This C3 would be an excellent candidate for a restoration.

The interior is tired and old. You can buy a new complete kit for less than a Grand.

The exterior paint is driver quality; at Best. To make this a show car, it would need a complete re-spray. The pictures make the car exterior paint look better than what it is. It is a 39 year old car with average paint for a car that age.

The lower trim bright work (Chrome)on the rockers is missing.
