Seven Hills Motorcars is very proud to offer this numbers matching 1978 L82 Corvette in excellent condition with a close ratio 4-Speed manual transmission, and low original miles. An L82 with a close ratio 4-Speed is just about the best and most desirable option package available for a late C3 Corvette, they are exceptionally rare and virtually impossible to find. This Corvette looks nice, runs great, and is an excellent driver. The car is totally solid with nice lines and no rust issues. The Classic White (10) over Medium Red Leather (282) is also a very rare and beautiful color combination that looks great on the car. This is also the correct and original color scheme, verified by the codes on the trim tag, which is pictured below.
I have personally put over 20 miles on this Corvette and during that time it was completely reliable and a pleasure to drive. It has very late build date and was produced in August of 1978, the last month of the 1978 model year. The car is loaded with highly desirable options as one can see in the extensive list of RPO codes above such as the YJ8 Aluminum wheels, tilt wheel, sport mirrors, the color scheme, L82 engine, and Close Ratio 4-Speed manual transmission. The low original mileage is verified not only by the condition of the car, but also the clear Ohio title, pictured below, showing the mileage as "Actual." Please peruse all of the photos, video, list of numbers, and other information below to get a true sense of how nice, clean, and original this Corvette really is.
As a side note, this Corvette is not a dealer auction vehicle. We hand pick each car after careful inspection. Our Corvettes come from owners who expect their car to go to someone that will give the vehicle the same care and attention as they did. We invite and encourage you to examine the car in person or have the car inspected. Please take the time to scrutinize each picture. We photograph each vehicle to the greatest extent so you can feel confident about your purchase. If you have a question about the Corvette, just give us a call.
