Car history:
Up for sale is a 1979 Corvette. It has the painted T-Tops. It is an L-48 engine car
and I am pretty sure its the original engine that came in this car. The mileage
shows 57,000 miles but the speedometer and odometer stopped working sometime
ago, not sure when. I am told this is a rather low mileage car but have no proof of
that so I must go by the odometer and sell it as true miles unknown. The car has
all options that are normally on a 79 vette. Power windows work, power door locks
work sometimes, cruise works, has tilt-telescopic wheel, am-fm radio with 8 track,
not sure if the tape player works or not, one of the sliding controls is broken off of
the heater control, not sure if air works but it is all there. Windshied wipers work
but you have to work the switch on and off a couple times to get them to come on
but I can hear a relay clicking so it probably needs replacing, all gauges work, not
sure about clock now that I think about it. The interior is driver quality but carpet
is faded pretty bad. It has a 175mph speedometer, not sure if that was an option
or an aftermarket add on. Although it does have the Corvette emblem in it. I just
installed a new windshield. The engine runs good as the transmisson shifts good
also. No noise in the engine or tranny, no problems there. I did notice one of the
half shafts had a u-joint with some slack in it. The frame has some rust in front of
the drivers side rear wheel area which is common with the C-3 vettes. Its nothing
major nor does it affect the driving of the car what so ever although it should be
attended to. Paragon Vette sells the pieces to repair this reasonable, under
$175.00 I believe. Drivers side floor panel needs a little attention but its still
strong, just starting to rust on the outer edge a little.. The body on this car is
actually pretty good for the model. Yes, it does have a few cracks and the paint is
lifting in a lot of areas but nothing I would call major. The front nose is driver
quality as is the rear bumper facia but its got quite a bit of warpage in it The doors
need adjusted especially the drivers side. It opens and closes fine but there is a
larger gap at the top where it meets the fender,and close at the bottom. The
drivers glass will actually bump the body when its being closed because of the
misalignment but it is an easy fix. The doors seem good as do the fenders. The
quarters need some attention near the bottom, nothing major. All lights work
except I believe one of the headlights is burned out. The lights go up and down
just fine. The drivers side moulding has some damage as I think one of the
pictures shows that. It has all 4 factory wheels on it with the center caps. Tires are
pretty good and I don't think they have any dryrot at all. The exhaust comes
through the cross member and has one muffler on it and stops there, no tailpipes.
The car runs good and drives pretty good so I see no reason you can't drive this
car home. I have only put about 5 or 10 miles on it mainly because it isn't licensed
and insured. It runs cool, idles cool. Again, I haven't driven it much so if you are a
long ways from me you may want to trailer it, thats up to you. Since the pics have
been taken I have stripped the paint off both quarters so they will be in primer
when you see the car. I can send pics of that if youd like. I started working on it a
little when I had sometime but I am getting ready to buy a new home so time and
money are scarace is the reason for selling it. This would make someone a very
nice Corvette but keep in mind it needs work but theres no reason that I know of
that you couldn't drive it while working on it. Also, the T-Tops don't seem to leak
although the paint on them is cracked up so they would have to be stripped. The
weather strip on the complete car is driver quality but showing its age quite a bit.
I don't want to make this car sound like a top notch car but at the same time I
don't want to under rate it. It is a running driving car!! You are welcome to come
see the car in person should you be in the area. Thanks for taking the time to
read this novel but just trying to cover all bases.

These pics were taken on Jul-23-10, the date on my camera isnt set right.
