The Most Desirable Corvette Ever?

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!


Classic Car Overview

This 1978 Chevrolet Corvette might just be the most interesting affordable classic sports car you can get your hands on right now. The exterior reminds you of an older survivor. But they invested plenty in giving this incognito upgrades to a performance crate motor, fuel injection, updated suspension, overdrive transmission, and a loaded interior. White is always a timeless color, and so it looks great on a timeless classic like the C3 Corvette. This is believed to be the original paint, and as mentioned before, it wears its age. But if youre a Corvette fan, you understand the priority put on originality. Its the same reason why youll cherish the special 25th anniversary badge up front. And for those who are not quite into survivor style, the body is in an impressive overall condition. So the value price lets you create a stunner with a quality respray if you so desire. Plus, those modern intro wheels and red brake calipers peeking out from behind let everyone know that there have been some big investments inside. The hint of red on the caliper gives you a preview of the full red interior. This is the factory-correct color, and you see a lot of originality. But they also mixed it in with the right comfortable upgrades. This includes new leather seat covers, cup holders, an AM/FM/CD stereo, and bright new under dash lighting. The factory air conditioning has even been converted to modern R134a refrigerant (it likely just needs a recharge to blow ideally cold again.) And this is loaded with the best factory features like power windows, a rear defogger, power steering, a tilt steering, column, full gauges with a large speedo and tach. And of course, we all love a C3 Corvette with T-tops. Under the hood is an obvious upgrade. The fuel injection system makes this one look more like a C4 Corvette. Plus, beneath it is a ZZ4 performance crate motor (the motor was installed in 1999, and the odometer represents the full actual mileage of the body.) Youll even notice more desirable additions, like a BBK Power Plus throttle body, an aluminum radiator, and electric fans. Not only is this a more powerful Corvette, but its also a sharper handler. The fully-independent suspension has been upgraded with stronger boxed front control arms, TRW composite transverse rear spring, and a kit to lower the stance in the rear if so desired. The four-wheel power disc brakes system was upgraded with an SSBC kit and steel braided lines. And no matter if you want this Corvette for its extra power or grand touring, the upgrade to a 700R4 four-speed automatic transmission with overdrive is always welcomed. The sale comes with tilt documentation and a stack of receipts documenting thousands $$$$ in great care and investments in upgrades over the years. So while the affordable price could let you take this car to the next level, you already see how cool it is to have this much performance disguised in quite an original package. Dont let something this distinct slip away, call today!
