For Sale: 1978 Chevrolet Corvette in Lithia Springs, Georgia

Vehicle Description

With its distinct color combo, numbers-matching V8 power, and loaded A/C interior, this 1978 Chevrolet Corvette makes for a memorable classic offered for a value price.

The Dark Blue gives this car the right first impression. It's the factory-correct color with a deep tone for distinction. You can see from the pics that the respray was a while ago. While the value price leaves room in your budget for a respray and any personalization you may want to do, there's also just an appeal about a driver's car presented in a driver-ready style. And no matter how you choose to love this 'Vette, it shows good fundamentals with well-fitting panels, clean glass, and complete badging. Plus, 1978 was the Corvette's silver anniversary, and this example celebrates that properly with a terrific set of high-polish alloys.

The Dark Blue interior has the same kind of sophisticated tone as the Dark Blue exterior, and so it makes for a great total color combo. And the trim tag tells us it was born this way. The full presentation inside reminds us exactly why this is such a terrific driver's classic. It's quite comfortable with features like cloth inserts in the seats, power windows, an electric rear defogger, and cold-blowing air conditioning. And the T-tops are a great way to open this coupe up to the world. There are even cool vintage details like the working courtesy lights and the Delco AM/FM radio with 8-track. This is also an engaging car for the driver. You get a comfortable three-spoke steering wheel on a tilt column. Beyond that is the large speedometer and tachometer in front and a full gauge package prominently to the side.

Lift the hood and you see more of a true classic presentation. The 350 cubic-inch L-48 motor is the numbers-matching powerplant. It inhales deeply with a four-barrel carburetor, and the newer dual exhaust lets the V8 exhale with a proper tune. This is mated to the numbers-matching three-speed automatic transmission. It's a smooth shifter that's part of a great cruising package that also includes power steering, a fully independent suspension, and four-wheel power disc brakes.

This is an iconic coupe with a distinctive color combo, great features, and is even believed to be a lifelong southern car. So you know you need to get your hands on this value-priced deal. Call today!!!
