The Most Desirable Corvette Ever?

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

This 1979 Chevrolet Corvette is the right mix of originality and upgrades. After all, it retains its factory black-on-black appearance and even the original V8 is still under the hood. But as you look around the whole car, there are subtle additions that give it extra flair. So its amazing you can get it all for such an obtainable price. Black Corvettes always have an instant appeal, and it only gets better when they were born this way. But as you look closer at this slick C3, you see some very cool custom pieces. For example, the window trim and rockers have more dark elements, and that really goes well with the crisp lines of this well-respected coupe. They saved the brightwork for upgrades like the luggage rack and the 15-inch ARE alloys. And as you look over all the pictures, youre going to spot more details, like how the tint on the rear window coordinates with the mirror-like reflection in the optional glass T-tops. The result is a true classic with style all its own. The black interior gives this car a truly sinister attitude, and the T-tops let you show it off to the world. But just because this one looks intimidating, doesnt mean its rough on the occupants. Instead, you get a ton of terrific modern features like an AM/FM/CD stereo and cold-blowing R134a air conditioning. These later C3s are also known for handy features like the improved gauge panel and bucket seats that fold flat for better access to the cargo area. So this is a great classic for the grand tour. Under the hood is the original numbers-matching 350 cubic-inch V8. Topped with a Quadrajet four-barrel carburetor, it makes all the right powerful noises out of the dual exhaust. The motor fires up nicely, the three-speed automatic transmission shifts smoothly, and it rides confidently. So see what we mean about a great grand touring machine?! Plus, with a fully independent suspension and four-wheel disc brakes, this is the classic car that can be enjoyed on your favorite back road. Complete with the original warranty card and owners manual, this is the Corvette with the right color and the right features. So when the price is right, too, you know you need to hurry up and call today!
