1979 Chevrolet Corvette

Gateway Classic Cars of Scottsdale is excited to offer this 1979 Chevrolet Corvette marketed on consignment with our Arizona showroom, located in North Phoenix. This Corvette is part of the recognizable “C3" body-style that spanned 14 years from 1968-1982. Painted in a glistening coat of White, this sports car has all the typical Corvette body lines, desirable “T-Tops" that can be easily removed for a wind-in-the-hair experience and a sloping, wraparound rear window that was synonymous with late model C3's. Shiny chrome wheels help this Corvette show off some serious curb appeal although the owner states he does have the original wheels that could be made available with a sale. One of the highlights of this ‘Vette has to be the dual straight piped exhaust system, ensuring that your neighbors will hear you coming! Under the forward-opening hood lies the belly of the beast- in this case a 350 CID V8 engine that is comparable in displacement to what came in this car originally but is streets ahead as far as power goes compared with a stock '79 motor. The “ZZ4" 350 engine came with 355hp and 418lb ft of torque stock and although this one has been moderately used with 25,000 miles since the engine was installed there's plenty of life left in her. Shifting the gears is a TurboHydramatic 350 3-speed automatic transmission that was also installed at the same time as the motor according to the seller. The interior of the Corvette has always promoted a driver-centric experience with seating low to the ground and all the cockpit controls made easily accessible. This car has Red carpet and reupholstered vinyl bucket seats with the small storage area behind allowing for a few personal items. Power windows, air conditioning (currently not functioning) and an aftermarket Kenwood stereo system with AM/FM/CD capability are nice conveniences to have. Driver information is plentiful in this C3 Corvette with a full gauge set and large 140mph speedometer/7,000rpm tachometer behind the Red vinyl wrapped tilt steering wheel. If you're looking for a fun driver that brings back the nostalgia and won't break the bank, look no further. This upgraded classic 1979 Chevrolet Corvette could be yours after giving our helpful and knowledgeable Sales staff a call at (623) 900-4884 for more information. Alternatively, we will be quick to respond to any email inquiries sent to
