West Coast Classics are proud to present an exceptional example of this desirable 1979 Chevrolet Corvette L82 350/225HP V8 coupe with reported and believed to be only 13K original miles in it's all original factory color 'Corvette Yellow' (Color code 52L) paint with all original body panels and with absolutely no signs of any rust or bodywork/accidents, original 'Light Beige' color Leather seats and trim and (Trim Code 592), original matching # L82 350/225HP V8 engine (an expensive $565 option in 1979)and original factory options including automatic transmission, power disc brakes, power steering, power windows, power door locks, power antenna, cruise control, rear window defogger, AM/FM stereo cassette radio with dual rear speakers, T-Tops and air conditioning!

The car is in excellent condition and the interior and the trim is also beautiful throughout. Purchased by us recently with reportedly 13K original, but please note undocumented, miles! All the options are working including all gauges and lights and the AC. The L82 Corvette had a designated fifth digit VIN number with a number '4' to designate the high performance 225HP V8 engine option instead of the number '8' for the L48.

After Corvette's various legendary big block 396 with 425HP & the various 427 engines of the sixties, including the limited production L88 and then eventually the LS6 454 in 1971, Chevrolet continued production into the early seventies with the big block engine but by 1975 it was dropped from the Corvette range, as along with the rest of the industry, de-tuning to meet increasingly strict emissions testing regulations legislated out of existence virtually every American high performance car by the mid-seventies, with the Corvette alone remaining the almost sole choice for the muscle car enthusiasts. And so the Corvette continued with a pair of small block V8 engines, the standard L48 and the obviously more desirable and upgraded high performance L82 with performance oriented rear axle ratios. With its strong torque output and relatively light weight, this Corvette still provided strong performance and thrilling driving dynamics and equipped with this L82 option engine, the Corvette was the fastest car in the U.S for 1979, rivaled only by the limited numbers of the Pontiac 400 Trans Am 6.6L of the same year.

This is obviously one very rare and highly desirable example of this classic American sports car - a completely rust and accident free 1979 Chevrolet Corvette with reportedly only two owners since new and believed to be only 13K original miles with factory air conditioning, power windows, mirror roof T-Tops and the high performance L82 engine and 'Gymkhana' suspension option. An obviously always garaged and unabused example, the engine purrs under the hood and the automatic transmission shifts smoothly through the gears - an absolute pleasure to drive without any of the older Corvette typical shakes or rattles - a truly remarkable daily driver that will give any modern day sports car a run for its money!
