1979 Corvette Coupe - 1 Owner 13k Original Miles 4-Speed Documented!

With only 13,286 original miles, this 1 owner 1979 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe is in great overall condition. Finished in Code 72 Corvette Red with an Oyster leather interior, this is arguably one of the finest, if not the finest, combinations of a 1979 Corvette coupe available. Optioned with the (RPO CC1) T-top Mirror Tint roof panels derived from the previous year's 1978 Official Indy Pace Car Edition. Another item sourced from the 1978 Pace Car Edition was the high-back bucket seats that folded at a higher point to permit easier access to the rear storage area. These seats were fitted to all 1979 Corvette models as standard issue, as were tungsten-halogen headlight high-beams. Are you a savvy collector who's looking for some awesome American muscle that you can spend a little money on now and get a big return on later? Congratulations, you've found your next classic!

Factory equipped for comfortable touring, this 1979 Corvette comes with a 350 CI L48 V-8 engine, MM4 4-speed manual transmission, N90 aluminum road wheels, ZX2 convenience group, power steering, power brakes, C60 air conditioning, A31 power windows and the UM2 AM/FM radio with 8-track tape player. All model year 1979 Corvette 350 engines were fitted with twin-snorkel air induction and low-restriction mufflers.

Model year 1979 would be the first year that the Corvette base price eclipsed the $10,000 mark—an expensive automotive proposition in its day alluding to its popularity and acceptance to a wider fan base. Model year 1979 also proved to have the highest production volume of any Corvette, with 53,807 manufactured units leaving the Saint Louis, Missouri, assembly plant. Despite this high production number, very few have survived, making this remarkable example a very rare find.
