Vehicle Description


Cincy Classic Cars is proud to offer this 1979 Numbers Matching Corvette which is in beautiful overall condition and priced to sell. Amazingly this Corvette has only had one true owner over the last 38 years. Mr Wells bought the car brand new and had it in his possession until his passing this July 2017. He kept particular care of the car and left it in a very original state with a new paint job and an upgraded stereo which were the only upgrades. It still had the original tires on the car when we purchased it. His son inherited the car and we purchased it from him as he was in need of money. This Corvette is a true Factory ordered White/Blue Cloth Corvette as verified by pictured trim tag below. This Corvette features a nice repaint, a mostly original interior which is in great overall condition, and a very strong running 350 engine which is original to the car. This Corvette is very solid with great lines and gaps and shows no signs of visible rust anywhere around the car. This Corvette is finished in the beautiful and desirable color combinations of White paint(code 10) over Blue Cloth (code 29C) interior. This is the factory color scheme as verified by the trim tag pictured below and one of the most unique color combos I have seen on a later C3 Vette.


The White exterior is in very nice restored condition. This Corvette was treated to a professional paint job in the last few years and looks and shows well. The paint is slick and smooth to the touch and has a deep gloss when looking closely at it. Both bumpers are in great shape with no flaking or fading paint. The badges look good and so does the trim around the car. There may be some minor imperfections that are not noticeable in the photos, but nothing was intentionally excluded from the photos. There are some scratches that were painted over during the repaint at the bottom of the drivers door. The tires are litterly brand new and have full tread left and were just added to the car and are correctly sized 225/70/15 and the wheels are OEM originals that are in nice shape. The t tops come on and off nicely and fit snug and do not rattle while driving. All glass is “LOF” original glass. The headlights go up and down and work well but are a little slow going up and down. The power antenna motor works properly and goes up and down quickly as seen in the video.


The Blue Cloth interior of this Corvette is in great overall original condition. The seat covers are original and in great overall shape which says a lot considering they are cloth. The carpet appears to be original as well and is in great condition with no major stains or holes and looks excellent in the car. The original dash is in excellent condition and the dash bezel is in near perfect condition as well. The stereo was upgraded years ago to a digital Alpine cassette player and looks and sounds great. Thankfully the dash was not cut on for a modern stereo. The Power antenna works perfectly when the unit powers on and off. The original door panels are in terrific condition and both door pulls are solid and in tact. All interior and exterior lights and gauges work as they should outside of the clock and oil pressure gauge. A new sending unit was installed but the gauge still pegs and it appears the wrong unit was installed. The horn, stereo, wipers, power windows, and fan blower also work. The factory AC system is in tact and the compressor kicks on and off as designed and the system currently blows cold air. This car has not been smoked in; there is no aroma what so ever.


This Corvette is in great mechanical condition and we have driven it numerous times and it always performs very well and is a true joy to drive. Very importantly the 350 engine is original to the car. 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 camera makes a little creaking/squeaking noise when its moved around, you can hear the same noises in the walk around video. The one owner of this Corvette kept meticulous care of the car and regular maintenance was always performed. This Corvette is an exceptional 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 brakes work very well. The exhaust system is in factory original configuration and the catalytic converter is still in place and functional. Also, the engine is clean and nicely detailed as one can see from the photos. The engine is very correct and looks factory stock. This is a factory AC car and all the original AC components seem to be on the car and the compressor kicks on and off when engaged and the system currently blows cold air which is a huge bonus on this car.
