about our dealership
Seven Hills Motorcars is Cincinnati's premier Corvette specialist and a licensed and registered auto dealer by the State of Ohio.  With many years of focused experience I specialize in 1957 to 1982 Corvettes.  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.  This is simply a one man operation, and this is not my full time employment.  I do it because I enjoy it.  I am a collector and enthusiast and therefore look for cars that excite me.  I do not purchase at dealer auctions; each car is hand picked by me because it is special or rare to me and because I like it.

vehicle description

 

 

Seven Hills Motorcars is glad to offer this beautiful, low mileage, 1979 Corvette that is an excellent driver and priced to sell.  The car is totally solid and rust free.  It runs awesome and is a blast to drive.  This is an excellent opportunity to own a classic Corvette that is ready to be used and enjoyed at an unbeatable value.  One could easily buy this car now and sell it for more than the purchase price with minimal work and effort.  The low mileage is supported not only by the condition of the car, but also the clear Ohio title, pictured below, that states the mileage as "Actual."  Please peruse all of the photos below to get a true sense of how original and correct this Corvette really is.

"The 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. 

As a side note, this Corvette is not a dealer auction vehicle.  Our Corvettes come from owners who expect their cars 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.

Exterior

The black exterior is in beautiful driver condition.  As one can see in the photos the finish has dazzling gloss, smooth finish, and deep shine.  Often many Corvettes will have particularly chipped up front ends, this car does not.  The underside of the front end, a very fragile part of the car, is in great condition as evidenced by the photos.  This Corvette came equipped with aluminum wheels, which are in excellent condition with a brilliant finish.  There are no major imperfections that have been excluded from the photos.  There are some small spots and blemishes that were too faint to show up in photos, but nothing that is really noticeable from five or ten feet away.  The tires appear to have about 90% tread left.  This Corvette has absolutely NO rust issues.  The frame is totally solid with no rust in front of the rear tire and I have seen no evidence of corrosion around the windshield. 

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

 

 

Interior

 

The Light Beige Leather interior of the Corvette is in beautiful condition.  The seats look brilliant and virtually brand new with no rips, tears, or split seams. They are not worn in the typical areas such as where the driver gets in and out.  The carpet is in excellent condition as well with no stains or holes This includes the rear carpet with is often neglected.  The door panels are in awesome shape with no tears and, unlike many Corvettes of this age, they fit well and tight to the door. The console and dash are in great condition with no fading or sun damage.  The steering wheel looks like new with no stains, cracking, or sun damage.  The original pedal pads are not excessively worn and, as one can see from the pictures, show normal wear for a car with this mileage.  This car has not been smoked in; there are no burn marks or aroma whatsoever.  The t-top storage bags are also included with the car. 

 

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


Mechanical

This car seems to be in good mechanical condition.  The car starts right away every time, idles well, runs well.  There are no issues that immediately affect the drivability of the car.  The car is an exceptional driver that is tight on the road and at highway speeds.  There is no smoke when starting or driving the car.  The transmission shifts smoothly throughout the power band.  The brakes are responsive and do not pull to one side or the other.  There is a sticky spot in the pedal mechanism, but this is no way affects the braking.  Also, the engine compartment is nicely detailed as one can see in the photos.  This Corvette has plenty of power and is very fast.  The power windows work as do the all the interior and exterior lights, fan for the heater and a/c, all gauges (with the obvious exception of the clock), wipers, and even the power antenna, which is a very common problem on late C3 Corvettes.  The vacuum for the headlights works as both lights pop up with the headlight switch or override switch as they should.  The power locks will lock the door, but do not unlock.  The only items I am aware of on the car that do not work are the cruise control and a/c.  The compressor is free and not locked up so the system most likely needs to be recharged.  These are minor issues that are present on the majority of Corvettes we encounter from this era, that do no affect drivability, and that most owners would not disclose.  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.


Overall
Condition

 

Overall, this 1979 Corvette is in great driver condition.  This car is a great value and we have priced it to sell.  This car turns heads and gets ton of attentions wherever it goes.  The value of the C3 body style cars has gone up dramatically in the past few years.  They are all solid investments for a collector.  One could drive and enjoy this vehicle for several years and sell it for more than the purchase price with minimal effort.

 

Thank you for looking and please email or call with any questions.
