Gateway Classic Cars offers this sweet ride, a black 1979 Chevrolet Corvette L82 for sale in our Philadelphia showroom. This Corvette is the beneficiary of an extensive reconditioning project. In 2012 $25,000 was spent on mechanical and suspension upgrades and maintenance. Included in the work was a rebuild of the steering box, the differential, with new yokes and half shafts and most suspension components. Brake hoses, brake lines, shocks, new front calipers and upper and lower ball joints are just some of the items that were replaced. 1979 is the last year the Corvette featured the sleek lines that made C-3s famous. A standout feature on this vehicle is the optional L-82 engine rated at 225 horsepower, thanks to a low-restriction muffler and more importantly, a 4-speed manual transmission! 1979 was the final year that a manual gearbox could be ordered with this engine, so that makes this car pretty special. In fact, less than 20% of Corvettes in 1979 were ordered with manual transmissions! The engine bay on this Corvette still retains its originality with minor upgrades including a new aluminum radiator that keeps this car cool even on the hottest days. The interior of this 1979 is all original and features tan leather seats and an intact headliner. Stock gauges and entertainment systems work perfectly just as they did back in 1979. Pop a cassette in the player and wrap your hands around the steering wheel; it really takes you back those good old days. Classic T-tops allow for a freeing experience of driving with the fresh air flowing and sun warming your face as you cruise down the highway in this dark beauty. Additional features of this Corvette are Power Windows, Power Brakes, Power Steering, Anti-Theft System and Rally Wheels. This car has been well cared for and has an excellent maintenance history. It was completely striped in 1996 and completely refinished in Black stage 2 Urethane paint. Make it yours today!
