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 in a striking color combination of Factory Corvette Red over Factory Oyster Leather. This Corvette features nice paint, a mostly original interior which is in excellent 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 (code 72) over Oyster leather interior (code 122). 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 condition. This Corvette has nice paint that has a great shine and gloss. The paint is in good condition and shows well. Both bumpers are in good 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 are like new and have less than 1000 miles on them and are sized 255/50/17. The 17″ Chrome American Racing wheels are like new as well with no curb rash and shine nicely. The t tops come on and off nicely and fit snug and do not rattle while driving. All glass is in excellent shape. The headlights go up and down quickly and work very well.


The Oyster leather interior of this Corvette is in spectacular original condition. The seats are brand new correct Oyster Leather replacements and were just installed, see pictured $700 receipt below. The steering wheel was just replaced as well in the correct Oyster color. The carpet is in great original condition with no major stains, rips, or holes. The original floor mats come with the car and both are in great 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 original style two prong digital am/fm cassette stereo works very well and sounds great and thankfully the dash has not been altered for a modern style stereo. 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 windows, power door locks, rear defrost, and fan blower all work. This car has not been smoked in; there is no aroma what so ever.


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. Rear calipers and brake pads were just installed and the entire brake system was properly bled. Front suspension work was recently performed as well. 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 needs charged to blow cold.
