Smile What's a cherry 79' worth?

I'm looking at a beautiful 79' Vette with 19,000 miles on it. Second owner is selling to play with his 2009.
This car is almost 100% factory stock with the exception of the starter, tires, radio, doors,and paint job. The stock tires and radio are available.

As mentioned, the paint is a couple of years old but is still perfect. The 4 layers of Black paint and 5 clear coats are gorgeous! The owner even has an album of the progression of the painting. All panels were disassembled, and evened out where necessary then re-assembled and painted. The doors were replaced with straightened new ones. The interior is the off white cloth and it is a 4 speed.

Just wondering what this car is worth. Any knowledgeable person with experience judging such a car and their advice would be greatly appreciated.

The car can be seen at "Used Corvettes for Sale" and is based in Lancaster NY.

Thanks.

Was the car re-painted in the original factory color? I'm assuming it has the original engine.
Is the interior original or renovated?
Are you certain the mileage is not 119,000 vs 19,000?

The mileage seems relatively low so overall I would have to say it must still be in tip-top condition. As for the physicality, you can judge for yourself by looking at the exterior to see any obvious flaws to uncover if there were any bad knocks that the car has experienced before. Furthermore, since everything else that is major is mostly factory stock, you should be safe for a few years down the road.
