For Sale: 1978 Chevrolet Corvette in O'Fallon, Illinois

Vehicle Description

Gateway Classic Cars of Fort Lauderdale is happy to preset this desirable, real deal 1978 Chevrolet Corvette, 35th Anniversary Indy Pace Car. Good looking C3 Corvette here folks, and boy does it stand out. The black / silver finishes and graphics look very good, showing minimal wear. These have the front spoilers & tail fin, making them look really cool when compared to your average C3. And the 78-82's feature the new aerodynamic rear window style. And fortunately, the Pace Car designation is in the VIN, so no need to question authenticity. Under the hood, you'll find the original (base) non-L82 (L VIN) 350 V8, which now benefits from a true full dual exhaust system. The correct VIN and suffix code ("CUT") are present on the block. L82 emblems were added to the hood, and finned L82 style valve covers and an earlier style dual snorkel air cleaner replace the factory ones. GM's sturdy -speed THM 350 automatic transmission sends power to the rear. Power steering, power brakes, and cruise control are all there, and the radiator has been upgraded. She fires right up and runs strong- and it sounds a heck of a lot better than the shower-head sounding factory exhaust system. The silver leather & vinyl interior still looks very good, with only minimal wear on seating. It would not take much at all to make it look new, and important items like trim and dash area all in very good condition. A tilt / telescoping wheel make it more pleasant for tall or robust folks, and seating offers superb support just in case you elect to push it to the limits. The nice thing about these cars is you can buy pretty much anything they may need for service or restoration, from numerous resources. This one is very well priced and surely will not last long. This 1978 Chevrolet Corvette Silver Anniversary Indianapolis Pace Car is for sale through our Fort Lauderdale showroom and can be seen in greater detail including 100+ HD pictures and a HD video at www.gatewayclassiccars.com for more information please call the showroom at 954-227-4202 or email us at [email protected]
