1979 Chevrolet Corvette

Disco Corvettes are never out of style. Sure, GM makes new cars every day, but there's no denying the in-your-face wheel arches, the great fastback rear window...it's a timeless package.


  • L48 350 ci engine

  • 39,00 original miles

  • Clean paint, interior

  • Runs and drives great, looks even better.

  • A well-kept, good looking Corvette!

  • Asking $29,990.00

Outside, the largely original finish is in great shape for its age.  Corvettes of this vintage aren't known for their finish work, and that works in your favor.  Those shortcomings make it plainly clear whether the car has had damage or other cosmetic work, or if it's original.  On both sides you'll clearly see the bonding strips in the quarter panels, as well as other telling marks from the St Louis factory.  That this car retains so many speaks to its originality.  The original 15x8" steel wheels are in great shape, surrounded by classic Goodgear Eagle ST tires. The glass is very nice, the emblems are clean and the minor amount of trim is in great shape.

Inside, the red leather seats have aged very well.  They're supple and vibrant, as are the vinyl pieces.  The carpet is slightly faded, but not out of line for its age and mileage.  The AM/FM/CB radio is a rare option-less than 8% of '79 production came with one.  Power windows and locks, the tilt wheel and more are all in working order and were all optional-Chevrolet wouldn't make those standard features for another couple of years.

Under the hood is the long-running L48 350ci engine, with 195hp in 1979 thanks to the dual snorkel air cleaner off of the L82 cars.  The valve covers and exhaust manifolds have been detailed, but nearly every other component here is original or a service replacement.  The car has newer tune-up parts, and it runs great.  The automatic transmission shifts great, the brakes work as they should (a rarity on C3's) and the car rides great.  Plus, with only 39,000 believed miles, it's a car worthy of your time and money!

At the Motor Car Group, we're enthusiasts first. We want you to enjoy your new car from the minute it's delivered and the trailer door drops. Before a car leaves our shop, it's gone through comprehensively, both visually and mechanically. We do more than just kick the tires, though: We fill your tires with nitrogen, road test (if the weather permits us here in Cleveland!) and clean it inside and out. We buff the paint using a three-step process immediately before it's taken away so that it gleams when it arrives. Every car we sell, from Sunday drivers through the rarest exotics, is meant to be driven-get out there!

If you have any questions before, during or after the sale, do not hesitate to contact us. It's what we're here for! Call us at (440) 914-0000, write us at sales@motorcargroup.com or stop by and see the new shop at 6441 Davis Industrial Parkway, Solon OH 44139. We're 26 miles from Cleveland Hopkins Airport and we can pick you up when you come to inspect or purchase your car. We welcome any prospective buyers, their buyer's agents or inspectors from Monday through Friday during business hours, as well as evenings and weekends by appointment. We're car people who love what we do, and you'll feel it from the first time you contact us. Give the R&H crew the opportunity to serve you: Our passion and attention to detail set us apart!
