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 strikes the right balance of added performance and proper vintage. Thats why the numbers-matching V8 was professionally rebuilt and now has added power and flair. And speaking of flair, did you check out the custom paint and leather interior? This one wants to get noticed, and it all starts with the paint. It may have started out life as an attention-grabbing yellow, but they decided to top it with a full professional respray in turquoise. Not only does that make for a unique tone amongst the other C3s out there, but also theres a nice hint of metallic that gives it the appeal of an ocean wave every time the sunlight hits it. Its such nice paint that we love having it on one of these later cars that has the color-matched bumpers. Crisp lines, tinted glass, Rally wheels, and bright dual exhaust tips are all part of this full package designed to impress. The light doeskin interior is the factory-correct color, and when you take the T-tops out, the bright personality of both the interior and exterior makes it feel like this car is on island time. The high back bucket seats are finished in leather, and they fold flush with the rear trunk area for better cargo functionality. Youve also got great features like power windows, a tilt steering column, an AM/FM digital tuner with cassette, and factory air conditioning running modern R134a (like just needs a recharge to blow cold again.) It all combines to deliver a coupe that makes you happy to go for a drive. Under the hood is a clean and tidy engine bay that looks like it was given plenty of the right investments. And while there have been some big improvements, the real secret here is that it still has its numbers-matching 350 cubic-inch V8. The block was rebuilt by Jasper for a mild performance spec, and today it also includes a Holley four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock aluminum Performer intake, HEI ignition, and long tube headers that add power while adding to the rumble of the dual exhaust. Its a strong-running motor, and its mated to the numbers-matching three-speed automatic transmission also rebuilt by Jasper. So it has a confident feeling when you drive. And speaking of confidence on the road, the front and rear independent suspensions were given nice investments with fresh components. Power steering, power brakes, and four-wheel discs complete this awesome drivers package. Complete with build receipts and owners manual, this is the sleek coupe with upgrade power and upgraded personality - and yet, still respects its history. So you know you need to get your hands on this deal. Call today!!!
