Black w/Black interior, L82 350/225hp, 4-speed manual transmission.

During the 14 years, the C3 or Shark bodied Corvette was produced, there were a number of body changes that took place.  From ’68-’72 were the “chrome bumper” cars.  The ’73 was a transitional year that incorporated the new urethane front bumper with the traditional chrome rear bumper.  By ’74 the change-over to urethane bumpers front and rear was complete.  The ’78 was the first year for the “bubble” rear window, which added much needed extra cargo space.  And that design with some minor changes to the bumpers and front fenders carried on until the end of the model run in ’82.  Back in ’69 GM canceled Tuxedo Black as an exterior color for Corvette.  Technology hadn’t yet caught up with the production methods ’50’s.  Thus, quality control was spotty at best on America’s Sports Car, which was mostly hand-built (and hand-painted) back then.  And as everyone knows, Black highlights every flaw.  So, it was decided that Black would no longer be offered on Corvette.  That mandate was to remain in effect until ’77.  As a result, Black has always been one of, if not the rarest colors you could get!  That is, until ’79, when it was the least rarest color you could get!  However, that fact hasn’t diminished the color’s desirability one bit over the decades! The ’78 and ’79 Corvettes were virtually identical at first glance, but what sets the ’79 apart is how many of them were built. Production ended at 53,807 units. The highest production of any Corvette before or since! So, it isn’t often that we get in a ’79 that hasn’t been driven way past the capabilities of its 5 digit odometer. Most that we see (and reject) are high-miles beaters that would need considerable work before being considered ready for sale. But, every once in a while we run across an example that doesn’t fit into that category. Like the one being presented here . . .

If you were going to order a ’79 brand new back in the day, this is probably the best combination of drivetrain, options and color you could get!  This ’79 came to us from a local, So. CA. owner.  The car is in excellent condition throughout, obviously Black with Black interior, and is loaded with all of the great options, including the optional L82 engine coupled to a rare M21 close-ratio 4-speed manual transmission!  Please note: There is some pinhole size bubbling on the tops of the front fenders.

Other options include;

Air Conditioning.

Sport Mirrors.

Mirrored Glass Roof Panels.

Rear Defroster.

Gymkhana Suspension.

Aluminum Wheels.

Tilt/Telescoping Steering Column.

Leather Seats.

Power Windows.

Power Door Locks.

Power Antenna.

Convenience Group.

Front Air Dam.

Rear Spoiler.

On top of all that, the car has only 21k miles on the odometer and comes with factory docs and service receipts.  A rare find indeed!
