1979 Chevrolet Corvette for sale in Chicago, IL. This is a 79 Corvette that has recently undergone a new paint job in 2000, new transmission in 2002, and a new camshaft and shift kit in 2002. Features on this 79 Corvette include the following: AM/FM radio, CD player, glass top, T-tops, power brakes, power steering, power locks, vinyl interior, radial tires, raised white letters, and racing wheels. 1979 saw the crossed-flag emblems on the nose and fuel door revert to the those seen on the '77 model. Three popular features introduced on the '78 pace car replicas made it into this year’s production; The new bucket seats, the front and rear spoiler package, and the glass roof panels. The new lightweight “high back” seats were made standard equipment. The new seats had better side bolster, provided easier access to the rear storage area, and the seat pair resulted in a weight reduction of about 24 pounds. This year reached an all-time high in Corvette popularity. Production hit its peak in 1979 at 53,807, a record that stands to this day. This 1979 Chevrolet Corvette can be seen at www.GatewayClassicCars.com, and is located in our Chicagoland Showroom, which can be reached at 708 444 4488.
