Chevrolet Corvette 1978 Description

Up for bid, s this beautiful and rare


No Reserve !

**** We apologize for the errors in the previous listing of this car. Please see the complete update below ****

This L/82 4 Speed vehicle is completely original, ith the exceptions of the tires (Brand new Firestone Indy 500 series / original size replacements (P255/60R15) and the engine (overhauled to a 383 stroker / numbers match).

All the original engine parts are included (**Please see smog legal info below**).

I have also installed a true, ual exhaust Borla muffler system, ut will include the original factory parts to convert back to smog legal (with the exception of the catalytic converters. This baby screams and will outrun any other C3 Vette and probably most others and is truly a fun car to drive.

Original mileage is 66,007 on the car. The newly overhauled engine only has about 500 miles on it.

The car itself is in good to very good condition for its age. The original paint is good with a few nicks, ere and there. But overall, he paint and original decals look great and the interior, ith original leather seats and 25th anniversary interior accents,is clean and in great condition.

All the gauges work, ith the exception of the clock. An AM/FM cassette player was installed, eplacing the original CB radio (also included with the sale) and the A/Chas been retrofitted to R134A.

As just the 3rd owner, have the original sticker, wner's manual, nd both the factory service manualand wiring diagram. Also included isa supreme custom fit cover for this car.

The Corvette was first chosen as an official Pace Car for the Indianapolis 500 in 1978 and there were only 6,502 of these Indy Car replicas manufactured; finding one that is in good or better condition, s getting harder and harder. You won't be disappointed with this car.


Because this car is not smog legal in many states, ncluding California, lease check your local laws. I will not sell this car to any buyers in California (it has been exempt in a clean air county, ut cannot be registered by a new owner without a smog certificate – it will not smog as currently overhauled).

The transportation of the vehicle is the sole responsibility of the buyer, s are all costs associated with it.

A $1000.00 non-refundable deposit is due from the winning bidder within 48 hours of the end of the auction and the balance is due in full, ithin 10 days of the end of the auction. Payment is required by bank wire transfer or cashier’s check or cash in person. The Title & Bill of Sale will be mailed to the new owner, nce the sale is complete.

I will answer any questions prior to the sale and have and will be completely honest regarding the condition of the vehicle. But there are no implied warranties of any kind and this will be considered an absolute sale.

Thank you !

With the overhauled 383 engine, hiscar is very drivable and mechanically sound.

Please feel free to ask any additional questions. I will be happy to answer all of them.

Thanks !
