For Sale: 1979 Chevrolet Corvette



1237 Central Park Drive, OFallon , IL 62269 View Map


1979 Chevrolet Corvette for sale in our Tampa Showroom. This beautiful Vette has been tastefully modified and looks mean! Starting with the late 60â??s style big block hood, right on down to the side pipes, this car looks like it means business! Tinted windows, aluminum alloy wheels wrapped in radial tires, and the chrome Corvette license plate only add to the appeal. This is a head turner for sure. Inside you get red bucket seats, a Pioneer AM/FM/CD player and a nice chrome Corvette 3 spoke steering wheel. Take the T-tops off and ride in style with this beauty. Not only does it look the part, but under the hood is a 350 CID V8 engine with big air gap intake mounted with a Holley 4 barrel carburetor with an Edelbrock air cleaner, Hooker headers feed those side pipes, HEI distributor, MSD 6AL ignition system, spark plug heat boots, chrome water pump, braided fuel lines, and nice aluminum valve covers finish it off nicely. In 1979 the Corvette went through some major changes including the crossed-flag emblems on the nose and fuel door revert to the those seen on the '77 model. Three popular features introduced on the '78 pace car replicas made it into this yearâ??s production; The new bucket seats, the front and rear spoiler package, and the glass roof panels. The new lightweight â??high backâ? seats were made standard equipment. The new seats had better side bolster, provided easier access to the rear storage area, and the seat pair resulted in a weight reduction of about 24 pounds. The bolt-on front and rear spoilers were offered as an option and nearly 7,000 cars were ordered so equipped. Functionally, the spoilers decreased drag by about 15% and increased fuel economy by about a half-mile per gallon. A bigger hit were the glass mirror-tint roof panels, now a regular option, with nearly 15,000 cars so fitted despite their costing $365. All T-tops were now wired into the standard anti-theft alarm system. Tungsten-halogen high-beam headlights became standard as did an AM-FM radio, and for the first time a cassette tape player could be added as a $234 option. Options on this Vette include A/C, AM/FM/CD player, power steering, power brakes, tilt wheel, power locks, power windows, aluminum alloy wheels, radial tires, vinyl interior, and seat belts.
