This 1978 Chevrolet Corvette is a Pace Car tribute. So that means
you not only get desirable features like the T-tops and V8 power,
but it also has one of the most distinct and coordinated color
packages inside and out.
The '78 Indy 500 Pace Cars are now legendary. They had a
comprehensive silver and black two-tone with awesome details like
the color contrast to add definition to the cowl hood, and
practically everything was divided by a bright red pinstripe. Plus,
all 1978 cars have the special 25th-anniversary badging. And
there's plenty of sporty style with the polished alloys and full
body kit - including the extended rear spoiler. So it's great to
find a detailed tribute. This gets the color theme and decals right
in an overall fit and finish that will never make you nervous about
hitting the open road. What we like about this one is that it's a
value-priced tribute to the official pace car replicas. So you can
enjoy a distinct car that's an easy driver, or maybe you want to
have a wild project that could use some Indy 500-style flair. This
is what an affordable and stylish replica offers you.
The silver interior was one of the most distinctive parts of the
pace cars, and it was the Corvette's silver anniversary. So it's
great to see this one properly done in silver. This includes dying
pieces the right color and having an ultra-comfy set of silver
leather bucket seats. Just like the factory pace cars, this comes
loaded with premium features, like power windows, a tilt/telescopic
steering column, full gauges, and provisions for air conditioning
(it will need servicing to blow cold again.) Even the classic AM/FM
stereo is still working. After all, you're going to need the best
driving music when you take out the T-tops and hit the road for
Under the hood is a tidy presentation of the 350 cubic-inch V8.
This is a year-correct motor but a later updated one. You can also
spot newer essential components that keep this a strong runner.
It's this hardy nature that makes it feel like such a nice driver.
It's also true because you have the best in all-around cruising
features like power steering, a three-speed automatic transmission,
four-wheel power disc brakes, and a fully independent sports
Currently on a rebuilt title, this is a fun Corvette with a fun
personality and plenty of features. It makes for a car that's fun
to drive on day one, and a great way to create an interesting pace
car style custom. Call today!!!
