Classic Car Overview

1976 Chevrolet Corvette L-82 - 350ci V8 L82 - Automatic Transmission - 67K Miles - Silver Over Blue Interior - T Tops (Please note: If you happen to be viewing this 1979 Chevrolet Corvette L-82 on a website other than our Garage Kept Motors site, its possible that youve only seen some of our many photographs of the car due to third-party website limitations. To be sure you access all the more than 145 photographs, as well as a short start-up and walk-around video, please go to our main website: Garage Kept Motors.) 1979 Corvette: The one and only Chevrolet Corvette magazine advertisement headline, 1979 The headline above was followed with: What can you say about the Corvette legend It all began 26 years ago, when the first Corvette was driven off the assembly line. And it remains today as Americas only true production sports car. A car that is awesomely competent. And for 1979, the legend lives on. This year, Corvette engineers and designers continue to refine one of the worlds impressively responsive cars, blending styling and engineering to give you touring comfort and driver convenience. New flatter-folding bucket seats, for example, endow Corvette with more practical carrying capacity. New dual-snorkel air-induction air cleaner, new anti-theft steering column ignition lock, and standard Delco AM-FM radio help to make it one of the worlds best-equipped cars. Its not hard to understand why Corvette is such a legendary car. Since 1958 it has offered the fulfillment of a never-ending dream. And for that reason it is truly the one and only. Corvette. Offered here is a 1979 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe L82 in silver over dark blue. This American legend has been impressively maintained in original condition. Since new, the car has traveled 67,688 miles, or just over 1,600 miles per-year on average. The exterior silver paint remains in excellent condition over the entire body including the two removable t-top panels, the lower-front grilles, and the Endura -clad front and rear bumper covers. Only regular commitment to owner care can protect paint in this impressive fashion. All cabin glass-including the beautifully curved rear window-is clear and undamaged. Lighting lenses are similarly damage-free; pop-up headlights operate properly. Limited chrome on the body is in excellent condition with only minor patina on the door handles. All factory badging-the crossed-flags emblems on the hood, front fenders, and rear-deck gas-filler-cap cover, the L82 hood identification, and italicized corvette on the rear fascia-remains properly mounted. Factory-original alloy wheels with crossed-flags center caps are mounted with raised-white-letter BFGoodrich Radial T/A tires. Inside, the dark-blue color theme makes for an attractive companion to the exterior silver. Dark-blue vinyl-trimmed flat-folding bucket seats feature handsome, patterned fabric inserts. Cabin and cargo-area carpeting in matching blue is in excellent condition (there is some shrinkage on the right-hand side of the center console). Carpet mats are in place, as is a roll-up cargo cover, for sun-protection. Door trim incorporates both the patterned fabric and carpeting surfaces. The stock sport steering wheel with crossed-flags emblem frames the twin instruments: a 130-mph speedometer and 5,500-rpm-redline tachometer; a clock and four engine-monitoring gauges are located in the center-dash above the factory radio and HVAC slide-lever controls. The shifter for the automatic transmission and the power-window buttons complete the console. Under the front-hinged hood, the stock appearance of the engine bay has been maintained, clean and free of shine-enhancing, spray-on products. The twin-induction air cleaner assembly and finned valve covers on the 350-cubic-inch V8 are noteworthy. All components, including air conditioning, remain properly mounted. Viewed from below, the chassis is complete and undamaged. The Corvettes original buil
