1979 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe

1979 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe

The 1979 Chevrolet Corvette was a much smaller change from the previous year. The standard seats were now the lighter weight and taller version that was introduced on the Pace Car in '78. The passenger seat now folded flat to the level of the cargo area. The L82 engine option had a higher lift cam, special heads with larger valves and higher compression, impact-extruded pistons, a forged steel crankshaft, and finned aluminum rocker covers. These improvements added another 10 horsepower to the L82 engine.

Garage kept, this nice example of the 1979 'Vette is reasonably priced and has a tasteful color combo to boot.

Exterior
Classic White covers the good condition fiberglass on this sleek design version. All rounded corners, hidden headlights, and a swept back windshield add to its sporty charm. Some of the plastic bumper material has faded to a dirty white. This model is equipped with removable “t” top body matching fiberglass panel and has 15 inch aluminum wheels all around. Noted also is the large curved greenhouse glass on the rear covering the cargo compartment within can be stored the T top panels.

Interior
Light doeskin color leather buckets appear in good condition, with slight staining, and no rips or tears. Matching door panels present nicely and compliment the buckets. A matching doeskin color dash houses black gauge clusters, a Panasonic AM/FM/CD radio, climate controls to include air conditioning, power windows, power locks, and a toggle to remotely control the rear-view side mirror. A center console is flanked by the bucket seats and has some wood veneer appliqué panels throughout. Gold thick pile carpet is seen on the floors and cargo space and is in good unfaded and slightly stained condition.

Drivetrain
A base 195hp 350ci V8 with a 4-barrel carb sits in a clean engine bay, showing some patina with the passage of time, and is attached to a 3-speed TH350 automatic transmission. 3.45 gear ratio is on the rear.

Undercarriage
Slight surface rust and fading is seen but mostly unremarkable. 4-wheel independent suspension, and 4-wheel disc power brakes can be seen.

Drive-Ability
Starts quickly, shifts quickly, goes quickly, what more could we ask for? Oh, and also handles great.

Save for some faded bumpers, this car presents in good condition. All buttoned up and ready to go for a T topless ride...hey now.
