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 is a classic with a high degree of originality everywhere from the numbers-matching V8 to the bright silver paint. So youre going to love showing off this ultra-low mileage T-top coupe that has seen an impressive amount of preservation and care. It may seem nearly impossible, but its true...The ultra-low mileage on the odometer is believed to be the accurate distance for this Corvette. It makes for an exceptionally preserved example from the Corvettes 25th anniversary year. So for the silver anniversary, the cars appropriate silver finish is not only the factory-correct color, but its also believed to be the factory-applied finish. It has a touch of maturity while also retaining a radiant look in the sunshine to really confirm its decades of care. In fact, this is an all-around impressive survivor with good body panel alignment, tight gaps, and the T-tops that seal nicely. It all looks quite stock, right down to the optional aluminum wheels with Goodyear Eagle ST tires. The Oyster interior has a nice clean look against the silver exterior. Everything from the carpeting to the door panels has a clean and crisp look of good care. Even the courtesy lights work. So youll love driving this one with the T-tops out to show it off. It has a nice stock style, but there are also well-placed upgrades that you can really enjoy, like the tinted windows and an AM/FM/CD stereo with aux input for better driving music. And youll likely want to upgrade/service that factory air conditioning for modern R134a. The C3 Corvettes full gauge package is an instant reminder that this is a drivers machine. The smooth steering wheel, tilt/telescopic column, and full gauge package make it easy to enjoy the open road. So while the mileage is so low, we bet you wont be able to resist adding to the odometer. The original numbers-matching L-48 350 cubic inch V8 is still providing the power. It has a well-maintained style and a distinct bright blue on the block. This original V8 remains a solid runner, and that makes for a good cruiser with the smooth-shifting three-speed automatic transmission. And if youve picked up on the theme of driving this classic, its because a car like this really offers a terrific experience. It has power steering, four-wheel power disc brakes, and a fully independent sports suspension for a confident dive. There are even newer Bilstein shocks all-around. The sale comes complete with owners manual and car cover. This is a respected survivor from quite a significant model year. So if you love elegance and history, call today!
