This 1978 Chevrolet Corvette is a true 25th-anniversary edition car
that even still has its numbers-matching V8. And while that makes
it a collectible, the real enjoyment comes from owning a
well-priced T-top classic that loves to hit the road.
We know the 25th anniversary is the silver anniversary. So while
the trim tag tells us this is a true two-tone Anniversary Silver
car, this one has been updated to replace the gray-ish lower
section with a single shade of silver metallic. It makes for a
sleeker style that's also easy to respray later in life if you so
desire. So that makes for a distinct classic that's also easier to
enjoy. And that seems to be the overall theme of this coupe. You'll
spot more upgrades like the tinted glass and rear spoiler. Plus,
the wheels have been upgraded to a bright set of American Racing
Torq Thrust units with a larger rear set for an awesome stance. But
overall the appeal is a classic-looking coupe that knows how to
attract the right kind of attention.
The story we're told on this car was that it spent two decades as
part of an enthusiast's collection. And so you can see this one was
made to be unique. That's why not only the exterior was updated,
but also the interior was changed from oyster to bold red leather.
It makes for a car that looks like it's radiating from the inside
every time you take the T-tops out. Not only does it look great,
but it's also quite comfortable. It's loaded with features like
power windows, cruise control, a tilt/telescopic steering column,
and the C3's desirable full gauge package. So you may want to
update the stereo or refresh the R134a air conditioning, but
overall, the feeling on day one is bold, supple, and
Lift the hood and you see more of a classic presentation that has
been correctly updated. The 350 cubic-inch L-48 motor is the
numbers-matching powerplant. And it even has the correct Quadrajet
four-barrel carburetor on top. This V8 has a touch of flair with
the polished valve covers and air grabber (the stock units also
come with the sale.) And since this one was made to be a real
driver, you'll notice some nice upgrades like the newer aluminum
radiator and HEI distributor. There's even a set of headers to let
this V8 exhale more freely while also giving a sweeter tune to the
dual exhaust. So you have a strong-running setup that's more fun to
enjoy. The TH350 three-speed automatic transmission is a
smooth-shifting numbers-matching unit. There's also power steering
and four-wheel power disc brakes for an easy driver.
The sale comes complete with the owner's manual, service manuals,
maintenance records, and build receipts. It all makes for a
distinct classic cruising coupe offered for a great price. Call
