Please call Matt directly at 513-708-1468 with any questions about this car.

Seven Hills Motorcars is very proud to offer this 1979 Corvette in spectacular condition and with the high performance L82 engine and only 29,445 original miles. This Corvette looks fantastic, runs great, and is an excellent driver. The car is totally solid with nice lines and no rust issues. The Corvette Light Beige (56) over Light Beige (56) is a beautiful and highly desirable 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. A standard Corvette will have an “8” in this spot.

This Corvette is ready to used and enjoyed. The low original mileage is verified not only by the condition of the car, but also the clear Ohio title, pictured in this ad, showing the mileage as "Actual." Please peruse all of the photos, video, and other information in this ad to get a true sense of how nice and clean this L82 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.

Model Description

“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.


The Corvette Light Beige exterior is in fantastic driver condition. As one can see in the photos the finish has a terrific gloss, deep shine, and smooth finish. The rally wheels are in beautiful condition with a brilliant finish and no curb rash. The General white letter tires are literally brand new with less than 20 miles on them and are correctly sized 225/70R15. There are no major imperfections that have been intentionally excluded from the many photos. There may be some very tiny imperfections around the car 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 no rust issues. The frame is totally solid with no rust around the "key hole" are in front of the rear tire and we have seen no evidence of corrosion around the windshield, which are the two most notorious spots for rust on a C3 Corvette.


The Light Beige interior in this Corvette is in excellent condition. The seats are in excellent condition and look just as good in person as they do in the photos with no excessive wear, rips, or split seams. The gauge faces are clean and crisp and the lenses are clear. The carpet is great condition with no stains, rips, or holes. This includes the rear carpet, which is often neglected. The door panels are in nice shape overall with a couple small nicks 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. This Corvette has not 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 with a light color like Biege, 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 very low original mileage.


This L82 Corvette seems to be in excellent mechanical condition. 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. The brakes are responsive and do not pull to one side or the other. The car runs cool and does not overheat. This Corvette has plenty of power and is quite fast with a Chevrolet Goodwrench/Targetmaster crate engine. The more modern crate engine has more horsepower and should me more reliable than the stock engine. Also, the engine compartment is beautifully clean and detailed as one can see in the photos.

The radio works as do all the exterior lights, interior lights, indicators, wipers, and power windows. The blower works on all speeds and the a/c also works and blows cold. One can observe the a/c compressor clicking on and engaging properly in the video. The power antenna works. The headlights go up and work. The power locks work form only the right side. All of the gauges work with the obvious exception of the clock. The car has a crisp shit and feels like it has a shift kit. Not enough can be said as to how much of a pleasure it is to drive this car, especially with extra power from the crate engine and the T-tops out on a beautiful day.

Overall Condition

Overall, this 1979 L82 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 low mileage, the many great options, the beautiful original 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.
