1979 CHEVROLET CORVETTE

Why This Car Is Special

The Chevrolet Corvette (C3) was a sports car that was produced by Chevrolet for the 1968 through 1982 model years. Engines and chassis components were mostly carried over from the previous generation, but the body and interior were new.

The sharp red 1979 Chevrolet Corvette we have at Skyway Classics saw the return of the crossed-flag emblems on the body as well as three popular features introduced on the '78 pace car replicas, the new bucket seats, the front spoiler package, and the roof panels.

Mechanical

The engine in our Vette is the base L-48 engine which generated 195 hp. Output for all engines increased due to new "open flow" mufflers. The dual-snorkel air intake introduced on L-82 cars the previous year was now fitted to all cars including ours. It connects to the front with tubes to bring a fresh supply of air at all times.

The engine has blue factory valve covers, ignition shielding, Automatic transmission, Power steering, Power four-wheel disc brakes with dual hydraulic circuits and brake warning light, and air conditioning.

Our 79 Vette rides on Factory polished Aluminum wheels with Dunlop Radial tires with a great exhaust note emanating from the true dual exhaust system and tips in the rear.

Interior

The new tan interior features the “high back” seats that were made standard equipment. The new seats have better side bolster, provide easier access to the rear storage area, and the seat pair resulted in a weight reduction of about 24 pounds.
