1978 Chevrolet Corvette
Car for sale by RM Sotheby's in Auburn, Indiana 46706
The 1967 Corvette is considered the most-loved Corvette ever produced. The combination of classic C2 styling, along with an incredible array of powertrain and comfort options, makes it one of the most desirable Corvettes ever. Not bad for a car that was never supposed to be made!
The ZR-1's production run from 1990-95 was one of the most exciting times for Corvette enthusiasts in recent memory. In the mid-1980s, rumors of a "King of the Hill" Corvette began to leak out of Detroit and into America's speed shops and dealerships.

$40,000 - $50,000

Chevrolet marked the Corvette s pacing of the 1978 Indianapolis 500 by building the public 6,200 Limited Edition Indy Pace Car Replicas, featuring special paint and unique decals, replicating the Pace Car s color scheme, as well as the 220-hp L82 V-8 and full leather interior as standard equipment.
The Pace Car Replica offered here was bought new by its current owners from Devenport Chevrolet of Wolfe City, Texas, on 19 May 1978. It was trucked to the new owner s home and immediately put into their private collection, where it has resided since, and at the time of cataloguing recorded only five actual miles making it one of the lowest-mileage Pace Car Replicas known.
Overall the car is, as would be expected, well preserved, although the paint has begun to fail slightly at the tip of the nose; the interior is in excellent condition including the steering wheel, which is still in the factory plastic. The car is accompanied by the original purchase and delivery paperwork, as well as, in fact, the original window sticker, which has never been removed!To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/AF18.
