1980 Chevrolet Corvette


Engine: L48
Transmission: 3-Speed Automatic
Mileage: 61,128 ( undocumented )

We are happy to offer for sale at our Gateway Classic Cars Saint Louis Showroom this 3-Speed Automatic 1980 Chevrolet Corvette. This is a third generation Corvette, patterned after the Mako Shark II concept car, which was introduced for the 1968 model year and was in production until 1982. C3 coupes featured the first use of T-top removable roof panels. 1981 was the final year this vehicle was built in Saint Louis. The first thing you may think of when you see this classic from Chevrolet is a very unpopular song called 'Little Red Corvette' by a marginally talented musician who sometimes went by the name of 'Prince', but at other times went by a symbol and had a fascination of what happens when you marry the colors red and blue together. As far smooth running, powerful sounding, and easy transition to the higher speeds, this 1980 Chevrolet Corvette with a L48 underneath the hood is everything that you would expect. When we took this vehicle into our inventory everything worked perfectly, except for the interior dome light. Recently replacement work included: New Steering Gear-box, New Interior Door Panels on the Driver and Passenger Door, New Power Window Switches in the Center Console, and New Door/Latch Assemblies in the Driver and Passenger Door. In short, you have every reason to inquire further about this 1980 Chevrolet Corvette by viewing it in greater detail, including HD pictures and an HD video of the car running and driving at our website - http://www.gatewayclassiccars.com. For even more information, please call 618-271-3000 or email STL@GatewayClassicCars.com to speak with one of our knowledgeable sales consultants.

The outside is finished in Meadow Green Metallic. The interior is Black and in excellent condition. The engine is a 355 CI V8 with a 671 BDS Blower and Hilbourne Fuel injection. The engine was built by Lorenzos Fast Flow Cylinders and was putting out over 600 HP before the fuel injection was added.

1979 Chevrolet Corvette

1979 Chevrolet Corvette


Engine: 350 CID V8 L82
Transmission: 3 Speed Automatic
Mileage: 35,056 ( actual )

For sale in our Fort Lauderdale showroom is this low mileage 1979 Chevrolet Corvette. This example of a late ‘70s C3 has just over 35k miles on the clock. The story tells that this car was owned by a lady in New Mexico from 1979 to 2000. In the early 2000’s the Vette found its way to the sunshine state. Today we are happy to feature this beautiful C3 in our South Florida showroom. You are looking at a matching numbers L-82 car. The 350ci V8 L-82 engine is rated at 225hp and left the factory with 30 more horses than the lower rated L-48 engine. If you drive a 79 Vette with a L-82 engine you probably will never set another food in a L-48 C3. Turn the key and the fun begins. The car drives and handles very well. With removable T-Tops it is your call if you want to enjoy this special convertible feeling or just click them on and cruise down the road with the A/C pumping. With power steering you will arrive comfortable at your next destination but calculate in some detours into your route planer. You really don’t want to leave this fantastic and super clean interior. This is how a Corvette should look like from inside that just has over 35k on it. But when you get out you will see that the Corvette was recently repainted in a dark green metallic and she is a beautiful driver. The color combination is just right for a 79 Corvette. Since the car was located most of its life in New Mexico you don’t have to worry about the frame or bird cage. Everything looks solid and straight. If you are looking for a great classic car without breaking the bank stop looking. This C3 is the one you want to drive into your garage. The later C3’s are still undervalued and cheap compared to the early third generation. But in the past years the value is steadily going up and this probably will continue until they go up to the 30’s. Now is the time to buy one. If you have any questions, please contact us and we will take it from there. Greetings from South Florida. Let it ride!!! To see 100+ HD pictures and a video of this 1979 Chevrolet Corvette, please visit gatewayclassiccars.com.

1969 Chevrolet Camaro

1969 Chevrolet Camaro


Engine: 350 CID V8
Transmission: 4-Speed Automatic
Mileage: 7,000 ( since rebuilt )

Gateway Classic Cars is pleased to offer this 1969 Chevrolet Camaro for sale in our Houston showroom. Of special note, this is THE 1969 Camaro that Dale Earnhardt Jr. drove in the Goody's Headache Powders commercial, and comes with authentication (including Dale Jr.'s signature). One of the most iconic of the Pony Cars, the 1969 Camaro has developed a cult-like following. The Camaro was introduced in 1967 as Chevrolet's answer to combat the success of Ford's Mustang, which created a whole new vehicle segment, later dubbed "Pony Cars". For 1969, the Camaro received all-new sheet metal (except for the hood and trunk), which served to give the car a substantially sportier look. The grille was redesigned with the heavy “V” cant, and the headlights were given a new recessed position. New door skins, rear quarter panels, and rear valance panel also gave the car a much lower, wider and more aggressive look. The wheel wells were flattened with sculpted feature lines flowing off towards the rear of the car and rear-slanting simulated air slots were positioned ahead of the rear wheel. The front had a full width chrome bumper integrated with the body color grille surround and round parking lights positioned on either side of the license plate. At the rear were wider tail light bezels with triple segment lenses. This styling is considered by many Camaro enthusiasts as the ultimate muscle car look and arguably the most desirable. This car is presented in its original LeMans Blue paint (as depicted on the cowl tag), along with performance white stripe accents. Under the hood lurks a high-compression full roller 350 CID V8, built by Conroes Choice Automotive. It sports a pair of Edelbrock Performer aluminum heads and FAST EFI TBI Fuel Injection sits atop the Edelbrock hi-rise aluminum manifold. An MSD Digital 6AL ignition system helps boost the spark, while coated headers suction the exhaust gases into a 2.5" dual exhaust system, and the performance mufflers give it that throaty muscle car sound that enthusiasts crave. The hi-po 350 sends the power to the rear via a built 700R4 4-speed automatic, which twists the 3.90:1 gears in its 10-bolt Posi rear end. In the event you find yourself spending too much time in the throttle, savoring the high RPM howl this 350 makes, the two-piece slotted and drilled Wilwood rotors and their accompanying multipiston calipers up front will help you get back to legal digits quickly. Inside this cool coupe is an Ivory bucket seat interior (also noted on the cowl tag), which seems practically new, as does the black carpet. An Equus tri-gauge cluster above the console helps keep the driver informed about critical operating systems, as well. The console features a period correct "staple" shifter, with an updated gear indicator bezel, alluding to the 4-speed transmission (with "D-3-2-1" positions, rather than the "D-2-1" of a 3-speed auto). Additional features on this 1969 Camaro for sale include Vintage-style AM/FM Radio with Aux port, Power Brakes, Radial Tires, Seat Belts, and Vinyl Interior.
