Default Advice for first time classic car buyer

Hey! I've always wanted a classic vette and now I need something to drive about 30 mins/day to/from the train station - not much on the highway. I was looking at a'79 L82 for $11k that seems like a good buy but wanted your expert advice! I don't know a lot about cars, so I'm not looking for a huge fix-me-up project, but I don't mind putting some time and money into it. It has 79k miles. He's asking $12k but said could come down to $11.3k. I like the white, but I'm not crazy about the red interior. Would that be very expensive to replace?
4 speed manual, polished wheels, T tops, leather seats, am/fm radio, nice paint, needs nothing, telescope steering wheel, air conditioning

Thanks in advance!

Interiors very expensive to change over. Is that owned by a dealer, what state, curious (looks familiar)
White on red is actually a classic and desirable vette combo but if it doesnt float your boat wait...lots of these out there in nice shape for that price or less.
I too have a car with red interior wasnt my favorite but nobody else around here has one...its different.
