Vehicle Description:

Welcome to THE VETTE NET, a very proficient and knowledgeable online Corvette brokerage company.  Since 1998, we have provided our expert broker services to the USA and worldwide Corvette community, assisting both buyers and sellers with their transactions. We look forward to adding you to our long list of happy clients.

Our offer is a very special Corvette, a 1979 model with only 43K original miles.  Check out the very nice Black paint job with a small touch of metallic flake, the classy interior with mild custom seats and pretty much everything new inside, also the true spoke wheels, an options installed at the dealer when new in those days.  The factory glass tops and ground effects are complementing the look.   According to the window sticker it came very well equipped as follows:

  • L82 engine rated at 225HP
  • Automatic transmission
  • Transparent glass tops
  • power door lock system
  • sport mirrors
  • front and rear spoilers
  • aluminum wheels (later replaced with KH wire wheels)
  • power antenna
  • dual rear speakers
  • convenience group
  • leather interior

With MSRP of $14864 at the time, it is likely one of the most equipped models. 

As mentioned, power comes from a freshened up matching numbers L82 engine which performs flawlessly.  Transmission was rebuilt and shift crisply, also being endowed with a shift kit.   AC system was checked and blows cold air.  Interior is in excellent condition with all the gauges and instruments being functional (except clock, of course).  A set of quality leather custom seats was just installed by the previous owner. Rubber parts are fresh and seal  properly.  

Actual miles on the car are 43K supported by documentation showing the progression through the years. Check out the factory Kelsey-Hayes true wire wheels which are in excellent shape and run on new tires.  Brakes are new, undercarriage is clean, exhaust is new.  Spare tire and its lock are present.

There is extensive documentation showing clear mileage progression, repairs and upgrades, also, the actual factory window sticker is present.

All in all, this is a great example of a late Stingray Corvette which sustained a thorough process of rejuvenation giving you a civilized and reliable ride, also a show winner!

We can assist with delivery worldwide.  Corvette trades are considered, also assistance with financing is provided.
