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 in a classic black-over-black combination. This American legend has been nicely maintained in largely original condition. Since new, the car has traveled 72,689 miles, or fewer than 1,750 miles per-year on average since new. The factory-original exterior black (code 19) paint remains in excellent condition over the entire body including the lower-front grilles and the Endura -clad front and rear bumper covers. There is no damage noted on any fiberglass body panel. (To best assess the quality of the paint and other body finishes, be sure to view the close-up photographs of the car in the accompanying gallery.) All cabin glass-including the beautifully curved rear window-is clear and undamaged. The two removable t-top panels are in similarly well-kept condition. Lighting lenses are 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-including the crossed-flags emblems on the hood, front fenders, and rear-deck gas-filler-cap cover, and italicized corvette on the rear fascia-remains properly mounted. Factory-original slotted alloy wheels with crossed-flags center caps are mounted with raised-white-letter Road Hugger Radial GT tires. Inside, the black color theme continues. Black leather upholstery in a horizontally pleated design covers the bucket seats, with only normal wear present on the drivers seat. Cabin and cargo-area carpeting in matching black is in overall excellent condition with minimal fading. Matching door trim in black incorporates carpet on the lower panels. The stock, 3-spoke, brushed-metal-trimmed sport steering wheel with crossed-flags emblem frames the twin instruments: a 130-mph speedometer and 5,500-rpm-redline tachometer. Instrument lenses are clear and graphic markings are crisp. The clock and four engine-monitoring gauges are located in the center-dash above an Alpine premium audio head unit (replacing the factory radio), and slide-lever controls for heating and ventilation. The shifter for the automatic transmission, handbrake lever, and power-window buttons complete the console. The steering wheel and some dashboard and console trim show light patina from normal use. Under the front-hinged hood, the stock appearance of the 350-cubic-inch V8 (including its twin-induction air cleaner)
