For Sale: 1978 Chevrolet Corvette in Kentwood, Michigan

Vehicle Description

GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this 1978 Chevrolet Corvette T-top Stingray Coupe L-82 Pace Car Edition for sale. Powered by a 350ci V8 engine power is sent to the rear wheels through a 4-speed manual transmission.

For the 1978 Indianapolis 500, Chevrolet was given the opportunity to sponsor the official pace car for the 5th time in the manufacturer's history. Chevrolet made four official pace cars to use in the race and to cover all press duties of the event. Following the Indy 500, Chevrolet made another 6,502 Corvettes as replica pace cars, supposedly one for each existing dealership at the time.

The Pace Car edition had many special features that set it apart. The first of which is the special paint job that the pace cars received. This example retains the original silver/black two tone paint. It also still has the original red pinstriping decal along with the special Indianapolis 500 decals.

One might think that this special car wouldn't have the performance or driveability to back up its name as the Indianapolis 500 pace car, but Chevrolet didn't get the opportunity by making a sloppy car. The C3 Corvette offered here has power steering, a limited-slip differential, and four-wheel disc brakes making it enjoyable to drive. This model has also been equipped with removable glass roof panels which allow for a wonderful open-top driving experience

Another special item given to this edition was the silver leather interior which remains in great condition. Not only is this a special edition limited car, but it also was equipped with options such as air conditioning, power windows, power locks, rear window defroster, and factory AM/FM/CB radio.

This car is made by its engine and transmission pairing. There were not many examples produced that had the L-82 engine with the 4-speed manual and optioned as an official pace car replica. Now is your chance to take home this awesome car that has a significant story in American automotive history. Please call or email with any questions or for additional information.
