This 1979 Chevrolet Corvette Restomod is an upgraded coupe with fuel-injected V8 power, an overdrive transmission, four-wheel disc brakes, and a custom loaded leather interior. It makes for the kind of classic that's fun to drive and always memorable everywhere you arrive.
The trim tag tells us this was born a Classic White car, and there was even a more recent respray to keep it looking glossy and notable. Today, that makes for a bright and attractive driver. And as you look .....
around the car, you can appreciate the details of a later C3, like the color-matched bumpers, clean sloping rear glass, and integrated spoiler. And there are upgrades that make this more fun for both show and go. The coupe now rides on black American Racing wheels. The wider rear set and 17/18-inch front/rear stagger give this a sporty stance, and you also get to fit modern performance tires that are ideal for the power you bring to the streets. Plus, the dark wheels seem to draw even more attention to the polished side pipes that sit in-between them.
The light beige interior has a bright style that looks good against the white exterior, so it makes for a great car to enjoy with the T-tops out. There are nice details like good carpeting and door panels, but what's most appealing here is the driver-focused style. The bucket seats are borrowed from a Fiero. They have terrific bolstering for better comfort and are even finished in supple leather. And speaking of comfort, this is loaded with terrific features, like power windows, power locks, tinted windows, a Kenwood AM/FM/CD stereo with Bluetooth, and R134a air conditioning. You get a three-spoke steering wheel on a tilt/telescopic column, and ahead of that are the large dual pod gauges for the speedo and tach. Just to the side are a full set of auxiliary readouts to keep you informed on what's happening under the hood.
When you open the hood, the engine bay looks far different than most other C3s out there. It's a Chevy V8, but a younger 5.3-liter fuel-injected version installed in 2020. There are even some nice upgrades like a Speedmaster intake and shorty headers feeding into those awesome side pipes. Plus, this was upgraded to a modern 4L60E four-speed automatic transmission with overdrive. That means this Corvette feels like it's always in the ideal gear whether you're in the passing lane or cruising down the highway. You also have a fully independent suspension, power steering, and four-wheel power disc brakes for a total package that makes this custom a fun all-around driver.
This coupe has been given the right style and substance to be that ideal mix when you can have a head-turning rumbling custom with some every-day appeal. Call today!!!
