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
1979 L82 Corvette in spectacular condition and with only 55,525 original
miles. This Corvette looks fantastic, runs great, and is an
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 $11,000 including one receipt for $3,991.96
from the Chevrolet dealer for a new engine when the car had
49,284 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
The car looks just as good in person as it does
in the photos.
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
L82 Corvette seems to be in excellent mechanical condition. As
stated above the engine in the car only has about 6,000 miles on
it and was installed by a Chevrolet dealership and there are
$10,887 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
The car runs and
drives as well as it looks.
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.
