1979 Chevrolet Corvette


This was a trade in to our dealership. Its heading into winter and I really don't want to be looking at a Corvette in December in Michigan. This is why I'm listing as a NO RESERVE auction. highest bidder will own it.

Car runs fine and it appears to be the original engine and transmission. motor is 5.7 liter V8 and trans is the bulletproof 3 speed automatic turbo 350 transmission. I put the car in the air and the frame is solid. does have surface rust on the frame but is completely solid underneath. The gas and brake lines appear to be solid. The brakes feel exactly like every other C3 Corvette (3rd gen from 1968-1982) slightly spongy but stops fine. No cracks in the windshield or rear window. Power windows function properly. The air conditioning is all there however will likely need new compressor to operate as it should. All gauges work except the volt meter gauge. The others work fine. Gas gauge, emperature gauge, il pressure gauge works as it should. It reads 40lb at idle and goes higher as RPM's rise. This is within specifications from Chevrolet. The clock works as well. Car used to have a power antennae and was replaced with fixed antennae as most of them are. (common failure point) The headlights operate as they should. In other words they lift and close. I know this is another common failure point.

-The white leather interior is original and would rate probably an 8 out of 10. No rips or stains.

-The T-tops are in great condition and most importantly the seals are in tip top shape. did not leak when I poured water on top of it. also comes with interior covers that match the white leather that cover the T-tops. There is slight slight leakage on oil and transmission fluid, owever it is so slight that none of it ever seems to hit the ground like a true leak. I would call it seapage.

-The alternator is definitely new or newer. The radiator is definitely newer as well. note in picture's.

-Tires are brand new 215/65/15 inch BF Goodrich tires that all match.
