vehicle description



Seven Hills Motorcars is very proud to offer this 1979 L82 Corvette in spectacular condition and with only 55. 25 original miles. This Corvette looks fantastic. runs great. and is an excellent driver. The car is totally solid with nice lines and no rust issues. The Silver over Oyster is beautiful color combination that looks great on the car. It is also the correct and original color scheme as verified by the codes on the trim tag. which is pictured below. This Corvette is verified as an original and correct L82 model by the fifth digit of the VIN. which is a "4" indicating the L82 engine. The car is absolutely loaded with describable options as well as one can see in the extensive list of RPO codes above.

We have put about 40 miles on this Corvette and during that time it ran great. was completely reliable. and a pleasure to drive. The low original mileage is verified not only by the condition of the car. but also the clear Ohio title. pictured below. showing the mileage as "Actual" as well as the documentation and records that come with the car. Please peruse all of the photos. video. and information below to get a true sense of how nice and clean this Corvette really is.

This Corvette comes with a great amount of records. There are receipts totaling almost $11. 00 including one receipt for $3. 91. 96 from the Chevrolet dealer for a new engine when the car had 49. 84 miles. Many of the receipts also have the mileage recorded so they are also another great verification of the low original mileage on the car.

As a side note. this Corvette is not a dealer auction vehicle.   We hand pick each car after careful inspection.   Our Corvettes come from owners who expect their car to go to someone that will give the vehicle the same care and attention as they did.   We invite and encourage you to examine the car in person or have the car inspected.   Please take the time to scrutinize each picture.   We photograph each vehicle to the greatest extent so you can feel confident about your purchase.   If you have a question about the Corvette. just give us a call.




The Silver exterior is in fantastic driver condition. As one can see in the photos the finish has a terrific gloss. deep shine. and smooth finish. Both door open and shut nicely as do the hood and headlights. The N90 aluminum wheels and center caps are in beautiful condition with a brilliant finish. The tires have about 80% tread let and are correctly sized 255/60R15. There are a few small marks on the right front wheel arch and tiny blemishes around car that were too tiny to show up in pictures. but nothing else that is really noticeable from about five or ten feet away. As one can see in the many photos of the underside of the car. it is very clean and this Corvette has absolutely NO RUST ISSUES. The frame is totally solid with no rust around the "key hole" are in front of the rear tire and I have seen no evidence of corrosion around the windshield. which are the two most notorious spots for rust on a C3 Corvette.

The car looks just as good in person as it does in the photos.


The Oyster interior in this Corvette is in spectacular original condition. The seats are in excellent condition with no excessive wear. just some small marks in the typical area where the driver gets in and out. Please note that these are the original seats and skins. not some cheap aftermarket covers or replacements. This is especially important on this car because this style of seat cover no longer is made and replacements are not available. The carpet is good original condition with no stains. rips. or holes. This includes the rear carpet. which is often neglected. The door panels are in wonderful shape overall and. unlike many Corvettes of this age. they fit well and tight to the door. There is some slight wear on the drier's side door panel and a specific photo below. The door pulls are solid and intact. The dash and console look awesome with no cracks or sun fading. The jack and jack handle are still with the car. stored correctly behind the passenger seat. and pictured below showing the original decals on the compartment lid. The original spare is still with the car. This Corvette has never been smoked in; there are no burns marks and no aroma of cigarettes. Corvette interiors from this era are not known to wear well. especially a light color like Oyster. and the excellent condition of this original interior is a huge testament to the meticulous care and attention this car has received throughout its life and another great verification of the low original mileage.

The interior looks just as good in person as it does in the photos.


This L82 Corvette seems to be in excellent mechanical condition. As stated above the engine in the car only has about 6. 00 miles on it and was installed by a Chevrolet dealership and there are $10. 87 in receipts so this L82 C3 was very well maintained over the years. The car starts right away every time. runs well. and idle smooth. It drives great and feels nice on the road and at highway speeds. In the video below one can observe the car accelerating on the highway up to about 70mph. shifting through all the gears. braking to stoplight. and going through some curves. Please note that there are no vibrations or strange noises and the car performs quite well overall. There is no blue smoke when starting or driving the car. This Corvette has plenty of power and is quite fast. Also. the engine compartment is beautifully clean. detailed. correct and complete as one can see in the photos. Even the smog pump and original catalytic converter are still in place. We have put 40 miles on this Corvette with absolutely no issues.

The radio works as do all the exterior lights. horn. wipers. power windows. and all of the gauges with the obvious exception of the clock. The power locks work as does the power antenna. The blower works on all speeds. The power antenna works. which is a very common problems on this era Corvette. The a/c also works and blows cold. One can observe the a/c compressor engaging properly in the video. The vacuum system for the headlights works correctly. Also. the headlights go up properly with either the headlight switch or vacuum override switch. There complete operation form both switches can be viewed in the video below. Not enough can be said as to how much of a pleasure it is to drive this car. especially with the T-tops out on a beautiful day

The car runs and drives as well as it looks.

Overall Condition

Overall. this 1979 Corvette is in magnificent driver condition. The higher performance and high horsepower models like this L82 always draw a premium over their standard counterparts. The originality. the many options. the beautiful original color combination. the great overall condition. and the extensive service records make this car especially important and hard to duplicate. This Corvette always gets a ton of attention driving down the road. It is apparent that the vehicle has been well taken care of by its previous owners. The prices of C3 Corvettes have increased considerably over the past several years. They are secure and wise investments for a collector. One could easily enjoy this vehicle for several years and sell it for more than the purchase price with minimal effort.


Thank you for looking and please do not hesitate to email or call with any questions.
