1979 Chevrolet Corvette


Engine: 350 CID V8 Crate Engine
Transmission: 700R4
Mileage: 61,265 ( actual )

For sale in our St. Louis Showroom is a gloss black 1979 Chevrolet Corvette. The gloss black paint was sprayed 5 years ago in a 2-stage enamel and clear application. The oyster in color cloth interior has been upgraded by way of black leather bolsters in the seats and woodgrain trim on the console. A rack and pinion steering setup and coil over shocks in the rear help this Corvette handle better than it did when new. A Crate 350 CID V8 was installed 6 years ago and runs strong! The V8 engine features alloy valve covers, Edlebrock aluminum intake, a Holley fuel injection setup, and a D.U.I. distributor. An aluminum radiator has been employed to keep this Crate 350 cool on hot days. A rebuilt 700R4 automatic transmission was installed 3 years ago and shifts the power beautifully to the IRS (Independent Rear Suspension) with 3.08 gears. The odometer reads 61,265, which represents the actual mileage on the car, and approximately 25,000 on the Crate V8 engine. Options for this 1979 Chevrolet Corvette include: Air Conditioning, AM/FM Radio with Cassette Player, T-Tops, Cruise Control, Tilt/Telescopic Wheel, Seat Belts, Leather Interior, Power Brakes, Power Steering, Power Windows, Raised White Letter Radial Tires, and Aluminum/Alloy Wheels. Dropping a more powerful V8 engine is a very popular thing to do to a late C3 Corvette and should not be frowned upon by the purist. The original power output was certainly not Corvette worthy. This is a great example of a driver quality Corvette that is ready to be enjoyed by a new owner for years to come. To view this 1979 Chevrolet Corvette in greater detail, including HD pictures and an HD video, visit www.GatewayClassicCars.com or our St. Louis Showroom.

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!!!

1978 Chevrolet Corvette Indy 500


Engine: 454 Small Block
Transmission: TH350 3 Speed Automatic
Mileage: 68,012 ( undocumented )

This 1978 Chevrolet Corvette L82 Pace Car is for sale in our Louisville KY showroom. 1978 was the 25th anniversary of the Corvette and GM wanted to capitalize on this prestigious event with a special edition Corvette. After speaking with the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, GM was able to obtain the rights to be the pace car for the race. The decision was made to have the car painted black and silver a classic color combination. They had 2 versions with base model having the L48 which consisted of close 75% of the cars. This beauty is one of the more coveted L82 models which was switched out for something that is a little more powerful. The new engine is still a small block, but the displacement has been increased to a total of 454 CI. The balanced and blueprint engine is putting out over 600HP,giving this pace car the power it deserves. A blueprint cast iron block was used which allows for a much longer stroke with the forged connecting rods being 6.00. The 950CFM carb feeds just the right amount of fuel and with the engine having a 10:1 compression pump gas works just fine. The TH350 transmission was rebuilt and seems to handle the power extremely well transferring the power to the rear wheels with ease. The custom exhaust really lets everyone know that this is not your normal small block. The interior is clean and with the leather still being soft and durable. The weather stripping was replaced as well as the T Tops ensuring a weather tight seal. The exterior of the car looks great with the remaining stickers still in their original box. To top everything off the car is even sold with the original window sticker showing the original 14410.21 sticker price equivalent to almost 54500 dollars in today’s money. If you have been wanting one of these Iconic Pace Cars but the performance wasn’t quite there for you this beauty has that problem squared away.
