For Sale: 1978 Chevrolet Corvette in Lutz, Florida

$24,995  

Vehicle Description

This 1978 Chevrolet Corvette is a life-long Florida car that has been given the right investments along the way. So you have added shine from the paint, added comfort from the A/C interior, and added pep from the numbers-matching V8.


This was the Corvette's 25th anniversary year, and the special badging proudly announces it. While many of them celebrated with silver cars, this one goes for another kind of distinction. It's an original dark brown coupe, which was one of the rare colors in 1978. It still celebrates the silver anniversary with a little added sparkle from a quality respray later in life that also added a nice metallic element. The quality feeling continues with well-fitting panels and pop-up headlights that work well. There are even nice new details like the driver's door handle and tail lights. It's the kind of overall appeal that comes from a the right kind of care, and we understand why this one qualifies. It seems to be a true local. It was sold new in the St. Petersburg area and appears to have stayed in the Tampa Bay area all its life thus far.


The factory-correct light beige interior is well preserved and loaded. The right Corvettes of this era were about giving you a comfortable grand touring experience. So you have leather bucket seats, power windows, a tilt/telescopic steering column, electric rear defogger, and an upgraded AM/FM cassette stereo. For the driver, there's a comfortable three-spoke sports steering wheel. Beyond that is the large speedometer and tachometer in front, and a full gauge package prominently to the side. The T-tops really let you open this coupe up to the world, and since the air conditioning has been converted to modern R134a, feel free to do this long into the summer season.


The engine is the original numbers-matching L-48 350 cubic-inch motor. Just like the rest of the car, there have been investments in the right pieces. So the V8 now has added pep from an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor and Edelbrock Performer RPM intake. But since this is the original motor, the factory air cleaner, intake, and carb also come with the sale for those who appreciate a full vintage package. Of course, the way it's setup right now for added power really enhances the open road experience. And it's easy to enjoy thanks to great anytime driving features like the fully independent suspension, a three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and four-wheel power disc brakes.


The sale comes complete with owner's manual, title documentation, and original warranty card showing how this is a true local. This is a great classic that has been given the right investments for both show and go. So it's time to grab a terrific Corvette deal. Call today!!!
