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!

Classic Car Overview

With its full red-blooded American style, distinct upgrades, a loaded interior, and upgraded small block power, this 1979 Chevrolet Corvette is instantly attractive. And the affordable price is the cherry on top of this cherry red C3. Red Corvettes are such an icon that the factory paint name is Corvette Red. This one was given a respray later in life to ensure theres a nice shine that shows off the cars sleek and classic style. These later C3s were the chrome-free bodies where the bumpers and mirrors were color-matched, and so it looks particularly striking in glossy red. But the most distinctive part of the body may just be the custom golden pinstripe. It encircles the car for a unique look that also highlights how well the panels fit. And theres an overall quality in this coupe seen in everything from the pliable weather stripping to the clean look of the classic rally wheels. The red interior looks particularly distinctive, and the trim tag tells us this was born this way. So youll love showing it off as you go cruising around with the T-tops out. The seats fold flat giving you good access to the rear section for stowing the T-tops or just tossing in a weekends worth of luggage. Thats good because this was built to be a road trip machine. It comes with great features like leather upholstery, power windows, power locks, a tilt steering column, and provisions for factory air conditioning (theres a newer compressor but it will need servicing to blow cold again.) And the stereo has been upgraded to an AM/FM/CD unit with a USB input for your phone. The three-spoke sports steering wheel feels grippy in your hands, theres a large speedo and tach directly in front of you, and the full auxiliary gauge package is central at your eye level. Under the hood is Chevys famous 350 cubic-inch V8. You can tell from the components and added shine that there have been some nice investments along the way. Plus, the upgraded high-rise intake goes with the four-barrel carburetor to let the V8 inhale deeper. And the ceramic-coated headers add power as this exhales into the dual exhaust. The V8 fires up readily, runs strong, and shifts smoothly with the three-speed automatic transmission. And its a great all-around driver with a fully independent sports suspension, power steering, nice tires, and four-wheel power disc brakes. Complete with owners manual, this is an affordable Corvette with the right touches to make it a sharp looker and a solid cruiser. So dont miss a great drivers classic. Call today!!!
