Sounds like there is a leak in the break system or the master cylinder is gone bad. If you are not loosing any break fluid then probably would be the master cylinder.

Usually when the pedal falls to the floor under steady pressure the master cylinder is leaking internally. Check the fluid level first. If it's ok, the system's not leaking externally. HTH. - Jim

The master cylinder is by-passing internally. You would need to replace the master cylinder.

Exactly, Rowefast is correct. Your master cylinder is bad. HTH. -Jim

You dont have to have a leak, it could be a seal or "O" ring somewhere in the system & most likely the the master cylinder. Master cylinders are easy to replace, but bleeding the air out you'll need some help pumping & hoolding the peddle down while someone else lets the air bibbles out at the bleed check valves at every wheel. Old drum brakes always went bad from the little wheel cylinders going bad & leaking. And todays disc breke calipers dont do that,

do you have a brake booster in the car,that is the usual problem in a c-4 corvette

Check the brake pads, extremely excessive wear would allow the pedal to go to the floor.

Its a 4 wheel disc break, not like having rear drums to keep the shoes adjusted up to have pedal. And yes it would have a break booster, and when they go bad, the break pedal gets extremely hard to push.
