One of our favorite T Tops at Hobby Car, this 1979 Dark Blue Corvette has a ton of power in its 350/350 hp engine! It’s a lot of fun to drive and is certainly a driver’s Corvette.
GM only produced 5,300 Corvettes in Dark Blue during 1979, and few of them included an L82 engine, Gymkhana suspension, and 4spd transmission.
The engine on this classic Corvette has been completely rebuilt with new pistons, bearings, timing chain set, race cam, push rods, lifters, oil pump, motor mounts, water pump, fuel pump, radiator, clutch assembly, radiator hoses, bore heads, crank, block, and much more.
This C3 Corvette has had a lot of upgrades done over the years with close to $10,000 in receipts. The rear wheel bearings, rear end side yokes, power steering ram, power steering control valve, power steering hoses, power steering pump, idler arm, upper and lower control arms, lower ball joints, strut rod bushings, wiper motor, starter, 4 gas shocks, master cylinder, calipers, and more have all been replaced.
