1978 was the Corvette's twenty-fifth anniversary, and all 78's
featured silver anniversary nose and fuel door emblems. A new
fastback rear window was the most dramatic and noticeable styling
change, giving the ten-year-old C3 Corvette body style a fresh
lease on life. The fixed-glass fastback benefited both aerodynamics
and increased the usable luggage space behind the seats while
improving rearward visibility in the bargain. A shade was installed
that could be pulled forward to cover the rear compartment to
protect cargo and carpet against the unrelenting sun. The
tachometer and speedometer were redesigned to match the new
"aircraft styled" center console and gauge cluster first seen the
GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this 1978 Chevrolet Corvette for consideration. The current owner purchased this Vette new in Pontiac, Michigan. This low mileage Corvette fires right up with a turn of a key, and runs as good as it did the day it rolled off the line. This Vette is coming to you in a Dark Blue exterior that is in wonderful shape on what appears to be a rust free body and paired with a blue interior. Powered by the classic Chevrolet 350ci engine and paired with the original 3-speed automatic transmission that work together flawlessly. This Corvette also features working, cold air conditioning, working heater, power steering, front and rear disc brakes, T-Tops, power brakes, power steering, power windows, with a tilt steering wheel, and very nicely kept and clean interior. The previous owner always kept this Corvette maintained and in tip top shape. These C3 Vettes have seen a rise in collectability but in today's collector car market, are still quite a value, at least for now. Do not miss out on this opportunity.
