The 1967 Corvette is considered the most-loved Corvette ever produced. The combination of classic C2 styling, along with an incredible array of powertrain and comfort options, makes it one of the most desirable Corvettes ever. Not bad for a car that was never supposed to be made!
The ZR-1's production run from 1990-95 was one of the most exciting times for Corvette enthusiasts in recent memory. In the mid-1980s, rumors of a "King of the Hill" Corvette began to leak out of Detroit and into America's speed shops and dealerships.
Classic Car Overview
Gateway Classic Cars of Tampa is proud to offer this sharp red 1979 Chevrolet Corvette. Driven only 61k actual miles on its numbers matching engine and transmission, this car has tons of value. The Chevrolet Corvette (C3) was a sports car that was produced by Chevrolet for the 1968 through 1982 model years. Engines and chassis components were mostly carried over from the previous generation, but the body and interior were new. It set new sales records with 53,807 produced for the 1979 model year.3 The C3 is the third generation of the Chevrolet Corvette, and marks the second time the Corvette would carry the Stingray name, though only for the 1969 - 1976 model years. This time it was a single word as opposed to Sting Ray as used for the 1963 - 1967 C2 generation. The name would then be retired until 2014 when it was re-introduced with the release of the C7. This all original Corvette has been meticulously taken care of and kept the way it came from the factory. The red paint is original but still shines in the sun like it would have in 79. This C3 even comes with the window sticker from GM. This car is turn key and ready to be enjoyed. Being all original you can use this car as a daily driver or even put it into shows. All of the fluids and filters have recently been changed. This car has also had new brakes and mufflers installed. Positraction rear axle, tinted glass, and a wide-ratio 4-speed manual transmission were standard in 79. This 5.7 liter engine runs great and has plenty of life left in it. Options on this Corvette include; Air conditioning, T-Tops, Cd Player, cruise control, power windows, power steering and brakes, vinyl red interior, tilt wheel, posi traction, radial tires, and even rally wheels.
