1979 Chevrolet Corvette COUPE
I'm selling my recently custom painted, earl white, 979 CORVETTE STINGRAY L84. The car is almost completely restored; has a larger than usual cam (still smog legal in Kalifornia); and is insured by Hagarty Insurance for $50,000.
It has a BRAND NEW 350 engine with a heavy-duty cam, bout 1700 miles on it, nd a 7-year/70,000-mile warranty. The car has a BRAND-NEW RED INTERIOR. The interior also includes an instrument cluster (it came with those God Awful! Shi*ty digital instruments that tell you that you're going 50 mph, hen in reality you're going 65 mph), o I replaced them with $2000 worth of new instruments (from CLASSIC INSTRUMENTS) and had the mechanics fabricate carbon fiber to fit the dash and the instruments (for about $3000). It looks outstanding. And you don't have to worry about speeding, ecause mounted on the dash is an ESCORT RADAR DECETOR, hich is hooked up to ESCORT LIVE which you can download to your phone for free. It is a manual transmission, ith a HEARST short-throw shifter. The BFGOODRICH RADIAL TAs tires have 2000 miles on them, nd they have new KRAGER-STYLE MAG WHEELS.
As far as the suspension goes, t's all been redone. There are BILSTEIN shocks on all 4 corners; new tie rod ends, ew brakes, alipers, aster cylinder, nd hoses. The car has new ball joints. The differential was redone and both differential side yokes were replaced. The windshield wiper switch was replaced as well. The windscreen was replaced. The trailing arms bushings and leaf spring bushings were replaced. The car is a tee top, nd the tops are tinted. It is equipped with a VIPER ALARM SYSTEM, ower door locks, ir-conditioning, ower windows, ower steering and brakes, nd a tilt steering wheel. In 1979, he car sold for $15,000.
The only thing I can say about the car is that it is CHERRY. It is a real pleasure to drive and do the circuit down to Big Sur and back; and she is just plain sweet. I get compliments and head-turns wherever I go. My car has had everything done to it that SHOULD be done to it, nd can be done to it also. Thank you very much for looking.
If you're looking for a late-70s muscle car, his is it. It is equipped with xenon lights (high and low beams). New muffler and tailpipes. (It rumbles.) And a CD player that's awesome--you can't even take it above 30. It has USB direct control for iPod and iPhone's, andora ready Alpine head unit power pack 6 x 9 D series to the speakers.
I have all the receipts. You can have it checked out by any mechanic you want, t your cost.
Who knows? Does your honey want one of these so she can turn some heads?
I have to say this: I'm selling it for the kids college. I'm asking $35,000 for the car, BO. But please, on't call me and offer, Will you take $20,000 for it?" Because I won't. If I had wanted $20,000 for a $60,000 car--I would've asked for it." So buyers beware. Christmas is coming.
