Seven Hills Motorcars is
Cincinnati's premier Corvette specialist anda licensed and
registered auto dealer by the State of Ohio. With many years of
focused experience we specialize in 1957 to 1982 Corvettes and other GM
classics. There is no other dealership that can better meet your needs
if you would like to buy, sell, or just find out more information about
your Corvette, Cadillac, Camaro, or Trans Am. Founded in 2005, this is
a very focused operation. We do it because we enjoy it. We are a
collectors and enthusiasts; therefore we look for cars that excite us.
I do not purchase at dealer auctions; each car is hand picked because it
is special or rare and because we like it.

Seven Hills Motorcars is very
proud to offer this
beautiful 1979 Corvette in excellent condition and with only
miles. This Corvette looks fantastic, runs great, and is a wonderful driver.
The car is totally solid with nice lines and no rust issues.
Everything on the car works, the a/c blows cold, and the car is
ready to be enjoyed.
The car is
loaded with desirebable options as one can see in the
extensive list of RPO codes above such as the N90 Aluminum
wheels, tilt wheel, sport mirrors,
air conditioning, and power windows. 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." Please peruse all of the
photos, video, and other information below to get a true sense of
how nice and clean this Corvette really is.
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.
Corvette evolution continues" announced the slogan from the
1979 Corvette sales catalog. The L48 engine received the
dual-snorkel air intake introduced in 1978 for the optional
L82 V-8, which added 10 horsepower. All Corvettes in 1979
now had the high-back bucket seats introduced on the 1978
limited-edition Indianapolis 500 Pace Car. A higher pivot
point allowed the seat backrest fold more flat and level
with the luggage area floor. which drastically improved
access to the rear storage area.
Light Beige exterior is in
great driver condition. As one can see in the photos the finish
has a terrific gloss, deep shine, and smooth finish. The N90
aluminum wheels have a brilliant finish.
The Goodyear Eagle GTII tires have about 80% tread left and are
correctly sized 255/60R15. As one would expect from a paintjob
with this mane years on it there
are some small blemishes and touch-ups around the car with
specific photos below and some that were too small to show up in
the photos, 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.
We have included specific photos of the areas most prone to
rust. 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.
Window Date Codes
note that almost all of the glass on this Corvette is
date coded and original as each piece predates the car's
body build date of July 27, 1979 (L27). Original
glass is a good indication that this car has had no
major accident history and never sustained significant

The car looks just as good in person as it does
in the photos.
Light Beige Leather interior in this Corvette is in excellent
condition. The seats look just as good in person with as
they do in the photos with a small amount of wear consistent
with the mileage. The carpet is
also in great condition with no holes, rips, or major stains.
This includes the rear carpet, which is often neglected. The door panels are in
good shape overall and, unlike many Corvettes of this age, they fit
well and tight to the door. 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 and has never been
used. 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
and the excellent condition of this 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
This Corvette seems to be in very good mechanical
condition. The car starts right away every time, runs well, and
idles smooth. It drives great 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 strange noises or vibrations 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
The radio works as do all the exterior lights,
interior lights, horn, wipers, power windows, and even the
cruise control works. The a/c also works and blows
cold. One can observe the a/c compressor clicking on and
engaging properly in the video. The vacuum system for the
headlights works correctly. They go up quickly, evenly, and with
no binding in the mechanism. Also, the headlights go up correctly
with either the headlight switch or vacuum override switch.
There complete operation form both switches can be viewed in the
video below. All of the gauges work with the obvious exception
of the clock. The blower for the heat and a/c works on all
speeds and has a faint noise from the squirrel cage. There is a slight noise of an exhaust leak on the
right side, the sound mostly goes away when the car warms up. As
with many older carbureted cars this Corvette is a bit
cold-blooded. 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
The car runs and
drives as well as it looks.
Overall, this 1979 Corvette is in
excellent driver condition. The very low miles, the great options,
the great color combination, and the great overall condition 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.
