Vehicle Description


Cincy Classic Cars is very proud to offer this 1979 Red Corvette which is in beautiful overall condition and priced to sell. This Corvette is the one to have being a Factory L82 and Factory 4 Speed in a striking color combination of Factory Corvette Red over Red Leather. This Corvette features original paint, an original interior which is in great condition, and a very nice running 350 engine. This Corvette is very solid with great lines and gaps and shows no signs of visible rust anywhere around the car or the frame and undercarriage. This Corvette is finished in the beautiful and desirable color combinations of Corvette Red over Red leather interior. This is the factory color scheme as verified by the trim tag pictured below. This Corvette runs well and is a turn key car which is ready to be enjoyed by its new owner.


The Red exterior is in terrific original condition. This Corvette has what appears to be all original paint that is in good overall condition. There is no evidence of paint work being performed on this Corvette that we can see. Paint still shows well for being almost 40 years old. Both bumpers are in great shape with no flaking or fading paint. There may be some minor imperfections that are not noticeable in the photos, but nothing was intentionally excluded from the photos. The tires have good tread left but are older, they are correctly sized 225/70/15. The wheels are OEM originals and in good condition with no curb rash. The highly sought after Mirror T-Tops are in fantastic condition and come on and off nicely and fit snug and do not rattle while driving. These Glass Tops give much needed headroom especially for taller people. All glass is “LOF” original glass and in good shape.


The Red leather interior of this Corvette is in nice original condition. The seats are original and in good condition with no major rips, stains, or seam splits. The steering wheel is original and correct for this year Corvette with a standard column. The carpet is in good original condition with no major stains, rips, or holes outside of the area under and around the drivers mat, which has some wear, but is covered up mostly by the floor mat. The original floor mats come with the car and both are in good condition. The original dash is in great condition with no cracks, fading or warping, and the dash bezel is in great condition as well. The stereo has been updated to a modern Sony cd player with new JBL rear speakers. The original door panels are in excellent condition with no major wear and both door pulls are solid and in tact. All interior and exterior lights and gauges work as they should outside of the clock. The stereo, wipers, power antenna, and fan blower all work. This car has not been smoked in; there is no aroma what so ever. The tach is currently not working and door key is missing.


This Corvette is in good mechanical condition and we have driven it numerous times around town and it always performs very well and is a true joy to drive. The 350 engine is very correct and runs well. In the video one can observe this car running and driving with no excessive rattles or noises, and the car handles and performs well. The previous owner of this Corvette kept meticulous care of the car and regular maintenance was performed. This Corvette is a good driver that feels great on the road and at highway speeds. There is no smoke when starting or driving the car. It starts right away every time, idles well, and runs great. The brakes do not pull and stop as they should. The clutch shifts nice and smooth and the original 4 Speed transmission works properly, see vin stamp below. The exhaust is like the factory set up and still retains the original catalytic converter. Also, the engine is clean and nicely detailed as one can see from the photos. This is a factory AC car and all the original AC components appear to be on the car but it appears to need charged to blow cold.
