This is a low-mileage 1979 Chevrolet Corvette with only 30,000 miles on the clock. It has the base 350 cubic inch (5.7 liter) V8 L48 engine and paired with the Turbo Hydra-matic (TH350) automatic transmission. The 4-speed manual transmission was standard but this was available as a no extra cost option.
This is definitely one pampered Corvette with only summer use. The interior looks fabulous too with the Oyster leather interior in great shape.
Chevrolet produced 53,807 Corvettes for 1979 at a base price of $10,200. This car is also fitted with air conditioning – a $635 option. Another option on this car was a popular one, the mirror tinted glass roof panels (T-Tops). Even costing $365 they were ordered with almost 15,000 cars that year.
This car is currently for sale on eBay.
