Chevrolet Corvette 350 V8 1979

General description : Description
Time to get your hands on a factory black-on-black 'Vette. And not only is this 1979 Chevrolet Corvette an affordable classic that was born a midnight machine, but also you have terrific features, like a loaded interior, four-on-the-floor, and upgraded V8 power.
Black Corvettes always have an instant appeal, and it only gets better when they were born this way. It's a sleek finish that looks especially nice thanks to well-fitting body panels. Tinted glass, dark T-tops, the wide spoiler of these later C3s really complete this car's sinister look. Brightwork was kept to a minimum compared to previous years, and so you really recognize sporty standouts on this dark coupe like the alloy wheels and dual exhaust tips.
The full black interior looks deep and dark with seats, carpet, doors, dash and sun visors all looking particularly nice. So it makes this Corvette quite an appealing black-on-black package to show off with the T-tops out. It's loaded with great features, like power windows, leather seats, a tilt steering column, and an electric rear defogger. There are even provisions for power locks and R134a air conditioning (they will need servicing before preforming ideally again.) And the stereo has been upgraded to an AM/FM/CD unit that has modern connectivity for USB and Bluetooth. So you get to choose the best in modern driving music for this vintage Corvette. And this one was truly made for driving. After all, that bright shifter is just calling out to your right hand in all this darkness.
While this Corvette is powered by a proper 350 cubic-inch small block, and it even has a stock-like style with the blue valve covers, this one really is hiding a performance secret. The V8 is really a desirable LT1 motor from an earlier 1970s Stingray. Not only do you have added power from the performance motor, but also this inhales deeper with a Holley four-barrel carburetor. Plus, it exhales with power and authority as headers feed the dual exhaust. Best of all, the numbers matching four-speed manual transmission puts you in full control over the enhanced power package. This was fairly rare in 1979 with only 25% of corvettes receiving a manual. And these Corvettes are great for performance driving with the fully independent suspension, power steering, wide BF Goodrich T/As, and the four-wheel power disc brakes.
Complete with owner's manual, this is the classic Corvette with extra power to back up its mean-as-midnight appearance. So at a price like this, you know you need to hurry to catch this deal. Call today!!!

About Chevrolet
Chevrolet aka Chevy, founded in 1911 by Louis Chevrolet and William C. Durant is the best selling and biggest brand by General Motors -mainly due to low pricing.

No wonder Chevy the "working man's car" has become such an iconic part of Americana in films and pop-culture.

When talking about Chevy one must not ignore Chevrolet small-block V8 the world's most produced engine that has been in production since 1955 and still going strong.

Surprisingly, "America's only sports car" Corvette was introduced under Chevrolet brand rather than its own. To us the most memorable Corvette has to be The second generation (C2) Corvette, Sting Ray.

To compete with VW Beatle Chevrolet introduced Corvair a compact automobile built in 1960–1969 It was the only American designed, mass-produced passenger car to feature a rear-mounted air-cooled engine. Corvair handling was deemed notoriously bad mainly due to Ralph Nader's Unsafe at Any Speed. Although, any handling issues were soon solved the reputation did stick.

With Pony / Muscle car mania taking over the Americans, following the introduction of Ford Mustang, Chevrolet came up with one of its most famous models Camaro. During the first year alone they managed to sell 220,906 Camaros.
