Production dates at GM for 1979 Corvette and VIN sequence
I own a 1979, L82, 4-speed, always garaged, 56k miles. Redoing the carpeting and from info gathered two oyster colors were offered with leather seats. Oyster shale (very light), and Oyster grey (dark).
My VIN production indicates St Louis and 2640 production number off the line. But the production "date" indicates July 1979. Can anyone solve this mystery? I have heard that very early production numbers had the light Oyster shale, probably leftover from the 1978 production runs.
Trying to choose original carpet. Currently it in the car appears to darker Oyster grey. Help.
