1978 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe

Cashing in on the birthday cachet, Chevy offered the 1978 Corvette with "25th Anniversary" paint, which was a relatively inexpensive striping package that would be viewed as a desirable option and could thus be considerably marked up. Before he retired, Bill Mitchell had suggested a Silver Anniversary model in his favorite color: 19U black uppers, and 47M silver lower.

For consignment, a two-tone pace car with stickers denoting the 62nd annual Indianapolis 500 in May of 1978. An anniversary edition in great condition is offered for your consideration.

ExteriorThis car presents long in the Shark's tooth, its 1978 changes seemed to rejuvenate it all out of proportion to their magnitude. Bathed in a black upper and a silver lower the fiberglass body is excellent, and the paint presents very well. We can see a red pinstripe denoting the silver and black border and adding a bit of zing to the exterior. Exaggerated coke bottle design for the side panels and a removable glass T top in excellent condition can be stored in the rear of the car and is tinted but all clear. What slight chrome there is has a few small faults on it. Limited edition badging and polished 15-inch faux knock off hubbed aluminum wheels are on all 4 corners wrapped in raised white letter BFG Radial T/A's. A front chin spoiler and a rear spoiler are packaged on this limited-edition Vette. This is a pace car edition and sports the stickers to say so.

InteriorLike new single tone leather buckets with light silver tuck and roll inserts, and lighter silver bolsters sit proudly on a sea of clean like new gray thick pile carpet. A small center console makes its way forward past the buckets and goes from gray vinyl to black plastic where it houses the shift lever, power windows, and airflow. A JVC aftermarket stereo has been added. Various gauges present themselves to the driver from the center of the dash front. Round gauges in a black field, lots of warning lights, all within the long gray dash. An original steering wheel in very clean condition fronts the dash. Carpet under the greenhouse is slightly faded but is very clean.

DrivetrainA 350ci L48 V8 which has matching numbers rests neatly under the hood. All is well and very clean under here and we now see a chrome triangular open sided air cleaner covering/holder. This sits atop a single 4-barrel carburetor, and a non-original Saginaw 4-speed manual with a 3.36 position rear axle are noted.

UndercarriageSome light surface rust is on various suspension and frame undercarriage parts on this car. C3 Corvette suspension around, and 4-wheel power disc brakes, as well as an exhaust system that has a few holes in the pipes are seen.

Drive-AbilityI was anxious to drive this one as I love this design year. I hopped in and it started it right up. I wanted to stretch its legs, but I resisted and opted to just go for a cruise. The car rides like a sports car, and handles very well, although do not press the gas too hard in the middle of a corner, as it can get snap happy with all its power! A nice driver with a comfortable interior.

A low mileage, original engine Anniversary Pace Car edition 'Vette, here for the taking. I would definitely call this one a collectible with the C3 styling, all mechanically sound, and pristine interior, this is a turnkey load of fun right out of 1978 with its wonderful styling.
