1978 Chevrolet Corvette Stunning, numbers matching with the
optional high performance L82 engine and 4-Speed manual
transmission in excellent condition with only 38,030 original
miles. This drive train combination is the most desirable and
sought-after that was available for a late C3 Corvette. This is the
best and most performance oriented options one could order for
1978. This Corvette looks excellent, runs great, and is an amazing
driver. The car is totally solid with excellent lines and no rust
issues. It is finished in the beautiful and exceptionally rare
color combination of Mahogany Metallic (82) over Saffron (762).
This is the correct and original color scheme as verified by the
codes on the trim tag pictured in this ad. Besides the correct
paint code, this Corvette is completely 'Numbers Matching' meaning
the engine and transmission in the car are the correct and original
units that were installed in the car new at the factory in 1977.
Virtually every part we checked on the car is correct with the
proper part numbers and appropriate date codes. We have run the
numbers on literally hundreds of Corvettes over the years and there
are very few that are so correct and original. Even very detailed
parts like the distributor, starter, and even all of the glass is
all date coded and original. The last six digits of the VIN,
406733, are stamped on the engine pad, which is pictured in this
ad, and the engine is original to the car. The transmission is also
original with the last six digits of the VIN stamped on the main
case and pictured. This Corvette is ready to be used and enjoyed.
We have this car priced to sell and are offering an excellent
opportunity to own a clean corvette at an unbeatable value. One
could easily buy this car now and sell it for more than the
purchase price in years to come as the market on C3 Corvettes is
very hot right now and on the rise. The low original mileage is
