1979 Chevrolet Corvette C3 description

NO RESERVE!!
Up for sale is my gorgeous 1979 L48 Corvette. Unfortunately I am unable to keep this project car as I need to pay off a few school loans.
It has the original engine with only 27,000 miles on it. While I DO NOT have the papers for the engine directly, I have the PREVIOUS OWNERS WRITTEN receipt that it is only that many miles to the best of his knowledge.
This is the V8 small block, the L-48 model. Both myself and the previous owner have invested much time and effort into its restoration and performance, of which it is in mechanically excellent shape, just needs a carburetor tune as its running rich.
Here is a small MODIFICATIONS LIST...
-custom long headers
-rebuilt power steering pump (I have a brand new one that I will also include but I still haven't found the modern adapter to attach it)
-replaced power steering hoses and belts
-aftermarket Edelbrock air intake
-brand new red leather wrapped steering wheel
-full tune including all new electrical wiring for plugs, new spark plugs, new distributor cap, and a new performance MSD coil
-performance oil filter
-full fluid flush and all new fluids
-new glove box lock
-side ported exhausts with heat shield (exhaust still extremely hot!)
-new engine mounts and rear differential installed
-brand new battery
Basically she's in excellent running condition, about 8/10.
She'll need a little ATTENTION to a few paint spots (two on the bumper and one on fender, no fiberglass damage), some interior restoration (rip on door and bottom seat cushion only, still ORIGINAL carpet!), and will need the vacuums worked on for headlights. Headlights still work, just have to be lifted. The speedometer sometimes works and sometimes doesn't.
Lastly, the AC is not working however I HAVE ALREADY REPLACED the compressor and a few lines, as well as installing the converter for modern freon.
CLEAR AND CLEAN TITLE!!
EVERYTHING ELSE works and runs like the wipers :)
This is a project car requiring very little effort and only time and will be an excellent investment opportunity!
The best part about this vehicle is that it is already soundly running and able to make your daily drive a lot more fun or the occasional adventurous road trip! Original engine of the 1979 and only 27k miles!
All she needs is some interior work and some love and the cars value can exceed 15,000 with an additional maybe two or three thousand invested into repairs! I just don't have the time nor knowledge!
