about the 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 very proud to offer this beautiful 1979 Corvette excellent condition with only 41,500 original miles.  The car looks and drives awesome and is ready to be used and enjoyed.  This Corvette is finished in one of the most unique and attractive color combinations for a C3 Corvette, Corvette Light Blue over Dark Blue.  This color gets a ton of attention and complements wherever I have taken the car.  The low mileage is verified by not only the condition of the car, but also the clear Ohio title, pictured below, stating the mileage as "actual."  Please peruse all of the photos below to get a true sense of how clean and nice 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 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 Corvette Light Blue exterior is in excellent driver condition.  As one can see in the photos the finish has dazzling gloss and smooth finish.  Often 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 features aluminum wheels, which are in excellent condition with no curb rash.  There are no major imperfections that have been excluded from the photos.  There are some small blemishes that were too faint to show up in photos, but nothing that is really noticeable from five or ten feet away.  This car does have rust around the windshield and some rust repair on the frame.  The tires are almost brand new.

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

Window Date Codes

Driver's: CJ - "C" denotes November and "J" denotes 1978 meaning this piece of glass was made in November of 1978.

Passenger: YJ -
"Y" denotes October and "J" denotes 1978 meaning this piece of glass was made in October of 1978.

Rear: VJ -
"V" denotes December and "J" denotes 1978 meaning this piece of glass was made in December of 1978.

Please note that all of the side glass on this car is date coded and original as the pieces predate the car's body build date of February 20, 1979 (G20).   Original glass is a good indication that this car has had no major accident history and never sustained significant damage.

 

Interior

 

The Dark Blue interior of the Corvette is also in fantastic condition.  The seats are in excellent shape.  They look in person just as they do in the photos, with no slits, 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 good condition with no stains This includes the rear carpet with is often neglected.  There is one rip in the carpet in the footwall on the driver's side.  As one can see in the photos is it hardly noticeable at all and mostly covered by the floor mat anyway.  The console and dash are in great condition with not fading or sun damage.  The door panels are in great shape with no splits or tears and unlike many Corvettes of this age, they fit well and tight to the door.  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 interior looks just as good in person as it does in the photos.
 

Mechanical

This car is in good mechanical condition and is an exceptional driver.  It is tight on the road and at highway speeds; the car drivers terrifically.  Everything on the car works, even the a/c blows cold.  The brakes are responsive and do not pull to one side or the other.  It starts right away every time and runs well.  It does idle a bit high.  This Corvette has plenty of power and it is very fast.  There is no smoke when starting or driving the car.  The vacuum system for the headlights works as it should with no binding, including the vacuum override switch.  The horn works as do the headlights, interior and exterior lights, blower, and wipers.  All of the gauges work with the obvious exception of the clock.  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

 

This Corvette is in very good condition overall and is very striking.  It always gets lots of attention driving down the road.   The prices of C3 Corvettes have increased drastically over the past several years.  They are all solid investments for a collector.  You can drive and enjoy this vehicle for several years and sell it for more than your purchase price.  This condition of this vehicle and the rarity and desirably of the colors make this car especially important.  If you have any questions about the car or would like to schedule and appointment to see it in person please do not hesitate to email or call. 

 

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