1979 Chevrolet Corvette Description

Solid Southern Modified ’79 Vette

1979 Corvette non-numbers matching, V8 high performance 4-barrel.

This car has a lot of power, one test drive and you will see. It is a lot of fun to drive. It handles really well and is tight in the corners. Stops beautifully. I have all receipts showing work done and parts purchased. Clean title.

It has newer paint, smoke gray pearl exterior with new red interior. This was originally a 4-speed car and has been modified to automatic. Previous owner installed headers and motor. 70,000 miles on the motor. After market older suspension. Brand new tires. New brakes. New exhaust. Solid bird cage.

If you’re looking for a fun American Classic car to enjoy the summer in, this is it. Needs nothing to enjoy it. Come out of quarantine and enjoy your summer with this classic beauty. $14,900 or best reasonable offer.
