Description
The third generation of Corvettes lasted from 1968 until 1982. Thanks to a delay in C4 production, there were actually no 1983 Corvettes made, so if anyone tries to sell you one, keep looking. But with so many C3s running around, it takes a special kind of car to stand out amongst its peers truly, and this 1979 Corvette is as special as it gets.

The custom Stinger hood, which harks back to the big block hoods of the C2, along with the front and rear D80 spoiler kit, gives this car a .....
presence from any angle. Under that awesome hood sits a numbers-matching 5.7-liter small block 350 V-8. That motor breathes in through an Edelbrock aluminum intake manifold and four-barrel carb, exhales through a set of long tube Hooker headers, and ultimately out through an incredible-looking set of side pipes to create a ferocious growl, unlike any stock Corvette on the planet.

That power gets sent through a tried-and-true T10 four-speed manual transmission onto a Corvette rear end where big 275/40ZR-18 tires wait to grab as much of the tarmac as possible, while 245/45ZR-18s handle steering duties up front. Polished 18-inch Rev wheels match the beautifully repainted Silver Metallic exterior to give this 'Vette some fine-tuned attitude.

HIGHLIGHTS:
*Custom C2 Stinger BB hood

*D80 front and rear spoiler kits

*Numbers matching 350 V8

*Edelbrock intake and carb

*Long tube Hooker headers

*Side pipes

*T10 four speed manual

*18 inch Rev wheels

*Red leather

*T tops

Open up the fiberglass doors, and you'll be greeted by a sea of sensuous red leather adorning all corners of the cabin. Two big analog gauges sit front and center of the driver, including a 7,000 rpm tach and 140 mph speedometer that shows just 7,100 miles on the odometer. Pop the T-tops off and let the open air run through your hair while the rumble of those big side pipes growl and snarl just outside your doors. It takes a lot to stand out in the world of C3 Corvettes, but this 1979 example is special enough to be the center of attention anywhere it goes. Call now!
