Chevrolet Corvette 1978 Description

This 1978 Corvette 25th Anniversary has sustained its desirability well after America's sportscar celebrated its quarter-century. With gorgeous two tone paint, beautiful red cloth interior, t-tops, and its original V8 under the hood, it's a great entry-level 'Vette that will get you into all the big events, win or place, and put a smile on your face every time you crack the throttle.1978 was the first year of the C3 fastback styling, and combined with the two-tone paint, the results are a homerun. This commemorative coupe is less known than the gray/black pace cars, but the two shades of silver separated by a pinstripe has a monochrome level of cool that still turns heads today. In fact, you're looking at a recent respray of the factory colors, which ensures that both silver hues look fresh in the sunlight. While chrome was at a minimum in these years, there are two nice pieces of brightwork that outshines both sliver paint jobs. The wheels are done in the same look-at-me polish of the pace car, but real enthusiasts flock to see the shiny the 25th anniversary badge on the hood.Red cloth helps with some aggressive attitude inside. All the upholstery seems to be in amazingly original condition, which is especially nice to see because it is often changed on many of today's silver anniversary Corvettes. The rarity might make it desirable, but there's also a functional side, too. After all, if you park your Corvette for an hour in the sunlight with the top open, you'll feel much better sitting in a cloth bucket seat than the leather ones. Regardless, once you start up the car you can control your own climate with the air conditioning. A/C is just one of a long list of desirable factory features that also includes, power windows, power locks, tilt/telescoping steering wheel, and cruise control. There's an aftermarket AM/FM/cassette stereo installed, but you'll also get the original unit to swap back in if desired. This is a car that was meant to be driven, so the leather-wrapped steering wheel feels great in your hands, and the shifter for the 3-speed automatic transmission falls easily to hand just inches away.The original, matching-numbers 350 cubic inch V8 still lives under the hood. It has been dressed up with a dash of extra chrome, and the valve covers have been given a coat of handsome blue paint. Overall, the cleanliness of this engine bay is proof of how much care has been taken over the last three decades with this celebratory Corvette (we've got the original owner's manual and plenty of maintenance receipts to back up this level of care too). In fact, the 25th Anniversary cars were seen as one of the first true collector Corvettes out of the factory, and often these were not maintained just simply because they were locked away without seeing any use. Thankfully, this one shows all the hints of enough driving to keep this coupe healthy without becoming a high-mileage car. We suggest practice at least the same level of maintenance through road use, just like every classic car. Besides, this 'Vette has all the right road trip features with its smooth V8, three-speed automatic transmission, power steering and four-wheel power disc brakes.This 1978 Corvette is an investment that begs to be driven. It doesn't get much better than that. Call now!!
