Has the Barbie Corvette received an upgrade?
Check out this customized 1979 Corvette we recently spotted on the Facebook Marketplace. The car is located in Lakeland, Florida (halfway between Tampa and Orlando).
Offered for $13,500, the 1979 Corvette has an automatic transmission, chrome side exhaust and the listing shows 80,000 miles on the odometer. The seller describes it as being in “very good condition” and offered these details:
Chrome everywhere, side pipes, super Lord [sic] music system, a/c, and all. A lot of new parts have been brought and put on. 24-inch Chrome azaras, original tires as well
I do like the Pearl Metallic paint and think it looks great on this later C3. And of course, there are those wheels! These are 24 inch Azara wheels in Chrome (you can find them for sale at Amazon). If that look isn’t for you, the original wheels come with the vehicle as well.
No pics of the engine or interior so take that for what’s it worth.
I had a 1979 Corvette and the problem with selling them is that with over 53,807 produced, buyers can always find a nicer one for the same money. So kudos to this car for standing out from the crowd.
This Pearl Metallic 1979 Corvette might not be for everyone, but my daughter thinks it’s “rad” so that’s good enough for me.
