133 actual miles! All original survivor in excellent condition.
This car was part of the Devan Lowe collection. He owns a chain of
new car dealerships and put away several special cars including
this one. This car wasn't even titled until 2020! The window
sticker is still in the window!
Corvette celebrated it's 25th anniversary by creating a limited
edition Pace Car. Only 1 car per dealer (6,200) would be produced.
The package included an incredible color scheme in and out and a
list of features including glass tops and aluminum wheels. The Pace
Car option added a whopping $4,300 to the $9,351 base price. The
demand was so high for these cars they were selling for way over
sticker. Today they are still in high demand and continue to
appreciate in value much better than most other cars from that
EXTERIOR: One of the best survivors I've seen. Overall it shows
really well for a 45 year old car. The body has no damage. The
rubber bumpers and spoilers are not cracked. They nailed it with
these colors. The paint is claimed to be all original and it is
shiny. I did not notice any scratches, cracks or rub throughs. The
red striping and Pace Car decals are mint. The glass is crystal
clear. The window sticker and EPA sticker have never been removed
from the window. The black moldings are not flaking. The glass
t-tops are not cracked. The weatherstrips are still soft. The
wheels still look great. They are still bright and the paint is not
flaking. The original tires were recently replaced with BFGs, they
are included with the car.
INTERIOR: My dad bought one of these when I was a kid and I thought
I was sitting in a space ship because of the silver interior. It's
really sharp looking. Practically brand new, yet it's all original.
The leather is still soft, the leather steering wheel is mint. Door
panels, dash area, plastic trim is all mint. Never smoked in,
lighter was never used. It has the factory 8-track player. The
starting instructions are still on the visors, original sticker is
still on bottom of the t-top. The light color carpet still looks
ENGINE COMPARTMENT: Of course it's the original #s match 350 motor
with original components. Only a couple hoses, belts, oil change
and a/c service has been performed It's very, very clean. It
features air conditioning, cruise control, power steering and
UNDERSIDE: It has an extremely well preserved original underside.
The assembly line paint markings, tags and grease pen writing is
still very well preserved throughout. The exhaust is still original
including the catalytic converter and GM mufflers. All the
components look good, bushings look good. The factory finishes are
still very good for a survivor, it has not been painted over. The
spare tire carrier still has original spare. These cars feature
independent suspension and 4 wheel disc brakes. It has it's vin #
matching Turbo 350 trans and original rear end.
The 78 Pace Car is a stunning Corvette. The combination of colors
in and out, glass tops, polished wheels really make is a pleasure
to look at. This is one of the best examples that exists today. A
car can only be original once! These will hit 6 figures, just a
matter of when.
I, Jay Grams, take pride in personally writing the descriptions for
virtually every car for about the last 30 years now. A significant
amount of effort goes into fact checking. What I am offering is my
professional impression of the vehicle.
Our salesmen are happy to assist with descriptions and making sure
your questions are answered. One great suggestion is letting us do
a walk around video that explains the car's condition in
