1978 Corvette 25th Anniversary Edition

The Corvette was 25 years old in 1978 and the celebration was on. All 1978’s featured a commemorative badge on the front nose and a special two tone paint scheme consisting of dark silver on the lower body and light silver above (separated by a dark silver stripe) was available and was optioned on this particular car. There were significant changes made for the C3’s in 1978 which included a new "fastback" design which made for a smoother silhouette which answered criticisms of limited luggage space and a new temporary space saving spare tire enabled the installation of a new 24 gallon (previously 17 gallon) fuel tank. The interior was also upgraded for 1978 by putting the round gauges in a more squared off area and a glove box replaced the map pockets located in front of the passenger. This beauty is completely numbers matching and has 88,979 original miles. It was factory optioned with power windows, Silver Anniversary Paint, rear window defogger, A/C (needs recharging), sport mirrors, automatic transmission, tilt steering, white letter tires (255/60R15), AM-FM stereo, power antenna, dual rear speakers, aluminum wheels and the convenience group. Within the last couple of years the current owner has installed all new belts and hoses, a new water pump, a new thermostat, new brakes, a complete exhaust system from the manifolds back and he also had the radiator re-cored. The original engine was rebuilt about 10 years and 10,000 miles ago and runs perfectly. The paint has held up well except for a small blemish on the top side of the front right fender. The original Oyster interior is all original except for the stereo, rear speakers and a missing driver sunvisor. Overall this is a very solid driver that you could be proud take anywhere. We would classify this is an above average quality car but have priced it as a below average car for a quick sale. If you could see yourself cruising in this classic Vette you better pick up the phone because at this price it is sure to sell quickly!
