hi i have a 1979 chevette with a new paint job on it and a new windshield and it has only 72,000 miles on it i was wondering how much it is worth?
The MSRP for a '79 Chevette 4-door hatch was $3,914. That's pretty much as cheap as you could get back then, although you could spring for an extra $300 and get a '79 Fiat 128 hatchback! Hmm...
The former Texas Congressman has decided to sell his 1979 Chevrolet Chevette, according to the website for his Peace and Prosperty Institute. The lime green car, which has just 69,000 miles on it, has sat in a garage for 10 years and even comes with its original Congressional license plate. The winner will also get to meet the former presidential candidate when they pick up the car.
In 1979, when I was headed to DC for my first full term in Congress, I bought a car to keep there. It was a 1979 Chevrolet Chevette. But this compact 4-door soon proved to be controversial. Tip O’Neill, the powerful House speaker, was advocating gasoline rationing for the rest of us, while he was chauffeured around in a Lincoln, all at taxpayer expense. And no waiting in gasoline lines for him, nor paying for it: he had his own pump in the House garage.
