RARE 4-SPEED with 5,030 ORIGINAL MILES!
“It has a look, a feel, a way of moving that sets it apart. Beautiful in line, in detail, in capability, in engineering. Corvette. The pride of every individual who drives one. And the pride of Chevrolet.” These are the words that Chevrolet used in 1979 to lure buyers to its showrooms, eager to put excited drivers behind the wheel of its legendary Corvette.
This absolutely stunning, original and unrestored one-owner Corvette has travelled just 5,030 miles in its 39-year life. Finished in Corvette Dark Green Metallic—a color used on less than 5% of 1979 Corvettes—and its second most rare color of the year, its original finish has a beautiful luster. Further contributing to its sportiness are its Rallye wheels, wrapped in its original raised white letter Goodyear Polysteel radial tires. You’ll also appreciate its removable roof panels—affording both closed and open-air motoring.
Its cockpit is equally sporty, featuring an aircraft-styled center console and bucket seats finished in beautifully contrasting glove-soft Light Beige leather. All areas of the interior, including the dashboard, steering wheel, seating areas, door panels and carpeting, show as new. It even smells new! Even the original factory carpeted floor mats are without wear. A host of gauges will keep you informed about what’s going on under the hood. You’ll also appreciate its full complement of comfort and convenience features, including the following:
Under the hood you will find its original 350 CID V-8 mated to its original 4-speed manual transmission. In addition to the exclusivity afforded by its low mileage, you’ll have the added rarity of its 4-speed transmission—equipped in only 23% of 1979 Corvettes. Its power steering and 4-wheel power disc brakes will keep you firmly in control on those twisty two lanes. Befitting its mileage, you’ll find its shifts crisp, its steering tight, and its power strong. This car wants to be driven!
However, if showing is your pleasure, this car would be an excellent contender for Bloomington Gold Survivor status and NCRS Top Flight consideration. In addition to the originality of the car itself, it is accompanied by original paperwork most coveted by collectors, including the following:
Also included with sale are a Corvette Assembly Instruction Manual, Chilton 1979 Corvette Shop Manual, original T-top covers, original shift knob, and car cover. In addition, over 35 spare NOS parts, accumulated by the original owner through the years, should anything be needed, can also be negotiated. A listing of these parts can be provided upon request.
Whether showing or driving is your pleasure, this ultra-low mileage 4-speed Corvette is the one you’ll want to call your own.
