1978 Chevrolet Corvette $31,900

Grand Rapids, MI Black · 350ci V8 · 38,328 miles
In 1978, Chevrolet celebrated the 25th anniversary of the Corvette by pacing the Indianapolis 500 and releasing a handful of special-edition pace car replicas to the public. Just 6,502 of these very special Black and Silver Corvette models were ever produced, each with a unique VIN sequence, a significant change from previous special-edition Corvettes. Following a front-page article in the Wall Street Journal, prices for these limited-edition Corvettes went through the roof as they were quickly snapped up by collectors. Besides the special two-tone paint, each Corvette Pace Car featured unique front and rear spoilers, polished aluminum Red-stripe wheels, mirror-tint roof panels and contoured sport seats finished in silver leather. An Indianapolis 500 decal kit was also included. The 25th anniversary of Corvette was marked with one of the most extensively redesigned Corvettes since the 1968 model. The new fastback rear end styling featured a large rear window, reminiscent of the lines of the mid-60s. The interior of the 1978 Pace Car sported a special clam shell seat.
GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this 1978 Chevrolet Corvette Pace Car for consideration. This particular Pace Car Edition includes the sought-after L82 350 CI engine with an automatic transmission. The L82 was designed as a high-performance engine, featuring a 9:1 compression ratio that generated 220 horsepower. The L82 engine had larger heads and valves, four-bolt mains, forged-steel crank, different pistons and aluminum intake. Although the cam is stronger in the L82, its physically identical to the L48, Chevrolets first version of a base 350 V-8 engine. With only 38,328 original miles this vehicle is in like new condition inside and out and has been kept almost all original. The current owner changed the interior trim to a clean woodgrain, put on a set of new tires, replaced the exhausted with a new one, installed a new radiator, replaced many hoses and bushings around the vehicle and also replaced the air cleaner with a chrome one. A second set of T-Tops, original tires, 2 sets of keys and a folder of receipts of service and parts are available along with the vehicle. Please call or email us today for more information.
