79 C3 History Info

Hi, I just imported a 79 C3 from LA to the UK and I was wondering how I would find out the original spec of this car from new?

VIN is 1Z8749S402450

Thanks
Malcolm

You could get factory CB beginning with the 1978 models and each year after that.

MALKY: go here http://www.corvetteactioncenter.com/...x.php?cmd=area and see if you can obtain a copy of the dealer invoice for your 79. The invoice will list the name and address of the original dealer, the date the car was scheduled to be shipped, all of the options, colors, prices, and additional information.

Here's the invoice for my 80 -L82. I got it from the Allied-Vaughn folks listed in the link.

Not a Corvette but I had a '79 Bronco with the factory CB. The radio was behind the dash so the only thing visible was the mic. All the controls for the radio were on it . Neat little option but never really did use it.
