For Sale: 1978 Chevrolet Corvette in Ft Worth, Texas

Vehicle Description

Time to get your hands on a black-on-black 'Vette. Not only is this 1978 Chevrolet Corvette a cool midnight machine, but also you have terrific features, like a loaded leather interior and numbers matching V8 power.


A good black finish always has an appeal on Corvettes. It's an upgrade later in life, and there's sleekness that lets the sunlight show off the long and aggressive lines of the third-gen coupe. Not only does a later C3 give you the color-matched bumpers, but the midnight style is extended on this one thanks to dark trim and tinted windows. And the intimidating factor is turned up further with upgrades like the rear spoiler and bullet-style tail lights. As you can tell, brightwork was kept to a minimum, and so you really recognize sporty standouts on this dark coupe like the alloy wheels and dual exhaust tips. It all has an attractive style that you can also tell is a road-ready Corvette that's made to be driven.


The full black interior looks deep and dark. There are even the little things, like the working dome lights that let you know this has been under detailed care. So it makes this Corvette quite an appealing black-on-black package to show off with the T-tops out. It's loaded with great features, like power windows, power locks, leather seats, a tilt steering column, and provisions for air conditioning (it blows cool but some may want to service it to be colder.) The stereo has been upgraded to a Kenwood AM/FM/CD unit that has modern connectivity for USB and Bluetooth. So you get to choose the best in modern driving music for this vintage Corvette.


The engine is a numbers-matching 350 cubic-inch V8 with a four-barrel carburetor on top. Just like the rest of the car, there has been attention to the right pieces. The motor has the tidy look of a newer investment, including an aluminum radiator. And the V8 has been upgraded with a set of shorty headers to exhale with added power and rumble into the H-pipe dual exhaust. The power steering, a three-speed automatic transmission, and four-wheel power disc brakes all make for the kind of coupe that's great for driving any time. There are even newer sway bar bushings to make the fully independent suspension feel even sharper.


This is the classic Corvette with a well-done dark style and plenty of the right added comforts. It makes for a great total package that's ready to be enjoyed. Call today!!!
