The popular Corvette C3 was produced from 1968 through 1982. This
1978 coupe has been partially restored and based on the trim tag
appears to be an original 'Special 25th Anniversary Edition' model.
That option package included a distinctive two-tone paint scheme of
Silver Metallic and Charcoal Silver (13U/07M) with pinstripping to
accentuate body panels. Cast aluminum wheels/sport mirrors were
additional required options with the package. These were not
considered to be 'Limited Edition' models, but only about 15,200
were produced. Our 1978 Corvette has been partially restored and
garage kept by the current owner (16 years) and is a beautiful
example of this C3 model. The coupe was professionally refinished
in the correct color scheme (2010) and all body panels are very
true. BFG Radial T/A tires with excellent tread remaining are
mounted on 15" cast aluminum wheels. The red leather interior was
also restored in 2010 and is in excellent condition. Seat covers,
door-cards, carpeting and dash-pad are all present well. Painted
t-tops are in good condition. This coupe is equipped with manual
tinted windows, remote mirrors and a raging aftermarket Kenwood
AM/FM/CD stereo system. It is also equipped with air conditioning,
but the system is currently inop. Our owner is not positive that
the engine is the original, but has no reason to believe that it is
not. According to the VIN it was delivered with a 350ci L48
small-block rated at 175hp with a Rochester Quadrajet 4V and GM HEI
electronic ignition. A new fuel pump, tank sending-unit and
Flowmaster exhaust have been recently installed. The 4-speed manual
transmission transfers 280lb/ft of torque to a stock posi-traction
differential. A solid chassis utilizes power steering and power
disc brakes with 4-piston calipers (all new). The owner has
provided us with the original Owner's Manual along with many
receipts. This Corvette C3 coupe is going to make someone a great
summer cruiser - be that you? ALL VEHICLES SOLD "AS IS".
