For Sale: 1978 Chevrolet Corvette in Ft Worth, Texas

Vehicle Description

This 1978 Chevrolet Corvette has been upgraded with a fuel-injected V8. And when you combine that with the fully-independent suspension, four-wheel disc brakes, and terrific sports car attitude, you know you have a desirable cruiser. And the value price on this one lets you give it your personal touch.


The factory-correct Frost Beige is a color that debuted for 1978, and it was only offered for a few years. So it's quite distinctive. The finish is driver-quality because you're supposed to cruise a car like this on a whim. So those who want a bit more of a showman may choose to update the car. And we already love the very complete look of this car. The bright Rally wheels, bright rockers, and overall sleekness of these later C3s. And we bet you spotted the distinct fender vents that give this an added hint of sporty style.


The Light Doeskin interior continues the car's vintage presentation. So while this has the right look of aged-in style, there's a charm in its authenticity and completeness. You have comfortable cloth seats that fold flat to give you good access to the rear section for stowing the T-tops or just tossing in a weekend's worth of luggage. That's good because this was built to be a road trip machine. There are more great features, like power windows, power locks, a tilt steering column, and an electric rear defogger. And the upgraded AM/FM/cassette stereo with subwoofer means better driving music. You'll love the grip of the three-spoke sports steering wheel, and these C3s were great at keeping you fully informed with the large speedo and tach in front and a full auxiliary readout package in the center.


Under the hood is a classic 350 cubic inch V8. But if you know C3s, you instantly know this is a bit different. It has the tuned port fuel injection that basically came a decade later on the C4s. So it makes for a nice motor upgrade while still staying in the Corvette family. There are nice details, like the serpentine belt system, and there are plenty of available components to tune up or upgrade the motor. Because this was made for overall driver enjoyment, you have features like the three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, four-wheel power disc brakes, wide BF Goodrich T/As, and a fully independent sports suspension.


Currently on a rebuilt title, this C3 is powerful and distinct. And the value price means there's room in your budget to make updates, upgrades, and add plenty of personalization. That's what makes it such a fun classic. Call today!!!
