1979 Chevrolet Corvette -- Additional Info:

Bright paint, loaded with features, four-on-the-floor, and a growling set of side pipes - you fell in love/lust with this 1979 Chevrolet Corvette even before you saw the value price. Yeah, that exhaust already announces your presence, but that factory-correct Corvette Yellow makes a lasting impression all on its own. In fact, Corvette people will point out that this is the rarest color from '79. Plus, this one gives you a great gloss and shine, which is especially... appreciated on these later C3s. This style is really gaining a nice following as people begin to appreciate the clean chrome-free body. They have a sleeker and more modern look than the cars of the earlier years. And so there's even more space to appreciate the bold yellow. And as you get up close you realize that the investment in this one goes much further than the paint. The way the doors shut with authority, headlights fit flush, and the shine of the Rally wheels are all part of a detail-oriented package that tells you this car has been cared for correctly. It's no surprise that this factory yellow car was also ordered with a black interior - the perfect complementary color. It's also one of the best hues for the inside because it allows the silver accents to pop on everything from the three-spoke steering wheel, to the gearshift boldly protruding from the center console. For the driver, the dual pod readouts mean the all-important tachometer is large and directly in front of you. Plus, the full gauge package is prominently to the side. As a grand touring car, it has some great features like the power windows, power steering, tilt steering column, and the upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo. Plus, we all love taking out the T-tops to really get the full wind-in-your-hair experience. You even get the correct storage bags for them - another sign of a good and complete classic. This has the look of even more investment when you pop the hood. Just like the interior, you have a deep, dark engine bay with plenty of the right bright accents - including the air topper, alternator, Corvette radiator shroud, valve cover ridges, and upgraded pulleys. But more than just attractive and tidy, this V8 was made to run. That's why you have upgrades like the Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock intake, and Chevy performance ignition. Plus, Dougs headers add even more power as they feed those ultra-cool side pipes. Best of all, you have complete control of this enhanced V8 and its muscle car symphony thanks to the four-speed manual transmission. Out on the road, you've got an unbeatable combination of a fully independent sports suspension, modern performance tires, and four-wheel disc brakes. So this bright C3 is also a blast to drive. Complete with owner's manual, this bold yellow Corvette begs to be driven and makes an impression everywhere it goes. This is a lot of muscle for the money. Don't miss out, call today!
