Vehicle Description

1978 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe

Mention the name Corvette and immediately someone in the conversation will perk up and pay attention. It's a timeless American sports car and has gone through several personality changes. From the 2-seat coupe when first introduced, to a fast 50's classic, to the Stingray Versions of the 1960's and early 1970's. By the 25th year, engineers were all but finished muddling through the power struggle with emissions and the 25th anniversary Corvette was born.

Happy 25th anniversary for this 1978 Corvette! And now it can be yours as it is up for consignment and gracing our Hallowed Halls in all its Classic White badged glory. A T topper, rear greenhouse glass and a replacement 350ci engine and a stunning red interior all to celebrate the iconic American Sports Car, the Corvette.

Due to varying emissions control devices being removed, please check with your state, county, local or provincial motor vehicle department to verify the ability to legally register this vehicle in your area***
Fiberglass bathed in a Classic White paint is showing off nicely with just minor checking and scratches on this 'Vette. However, upon closer inspection we see blistering and bubbling of the paint, particularly on the nose, hood and tops of the front fenders. No chrome, just neoprene crash bumpers at the end of the long, long hood. Hidden headlights, nicely curved front quarters with the "cove", sleek styled doors with their inset top handle, the greenhouse rear glass and rounded rear bumper which is integrated and sports the round Corvette taillights can be seen and enjoyed with your eyes. On the bottom, the rockers take on a black covering highlighted by a thin stainless trim spear which fills the gap between wheel well flares. 15-inch polished shiny wheels are on all 4 corners, and all wrapped with raised white letter BF Goodrich radials.

High back buckets right out of 1978 and wrapped in a mix of red cloth and leather make up the passenger and driver's seating. Light age wear appears on the leather bolsters and the cloth inserts are looking just great. This is fronted by a clean red dash with black instrument panels in front of the driver and in the center of the dash. A clean red rimmed leather wrapped steering wheel fronts this dash. Door panels also use the red covering in stitched leather along with ribbed red broadcloth. There is a lower red carpeting panel at the bottom of each door giving a background to the armrest and pull. The same dark gray carpeting floods the floors and is in clean and good condition. Up top, a removable T top is installed and opens the cockpit up to airflow. The rear storage area is also covered in the red carpeting which has slight fading to its presentation and a pair of aftermarket speakers have been added for your auditory pleasure.

Under the forward flipping hood is a 350ci V8 circa 1971. This mill has had a recent tune up, oil change, and was treated to new belts and hoses. Black valve covers with a red bowtie and Chevrolet logo have been added for some eye candy and the original air cleaner assembly remains. A rebuilt single 4-barrel carburetor is atop to feed it fossils and a TH350 3-speed automatic transmission is on the back with a 3.08 Positraction rear axle turning the rear tires. Noted, a new AC compressor was recently installed as well.

Very nicely preserved underneath with a smooth factory coating of undercoating and no rust. Independent coil spring suspension is on front and a fully independent rear suspension with transverse leaf springs is in the rear. Power disc brakes show up on all 4 corners and dual exhaust has been added with Flowmax by Flowmaster mufflers. We do note that the catalytic converter has been removed from the exhaust system. Our consignor states that a rear end alignment was recently done along with the driveshaft U-joints being replaced.

She fired right up and on the test track it performed beautifully. Nice smooth acceleration, smooth shifting and good brakes. It handles like it's on rails and the T top option is a nice feature without having to fuss with a canvas mechanism. All functions were working well during our test driving experience.

Happy motoring, carving corners, cruising, outside airflow to make your hair blow around, being pushed back into your seat, these are all qualities you can expect when seated inside this 1978 version of the Corvette. Happy 25th anniversary!
