Car history:
For sale is a 1978 Silver Anniversary Corvette coupe w/t-tops. The body has been
taken off the frame to give the frame a complete wire brushing and painting. The
frame is very solid with no rust holes. All new body bushings were installed in the
process along with,

TRAILING ARMS WERE REBUILT WITH NEW BEARINGS & BUSHINGS
REAR END WAS REBUILT, UPGRADED FROM 3:55 TO A 3:70
350 (L-48) WAS REBUILT WITH A MILD CAM INSTALLED, SOUNDS GREAT!
FRONT AND REAR SUSPENSION/BUSHINGS, TIE RODS, CENTER LINK REPLACED
NEW REAR MULTI LEAF SPRING, WHICH YOU CAN ADJUST THE HEIGHT YOU WANT
NEW BF GOODRICH TIRES WITH 300 MILES ON THEM
(may need front end alignment, the rear is fine)
ORIGINAL L-48 MOTOR REBUILT W/MILD CAM WITH 300 MILES ON IT
BATTERY, ALTERNATOR, STARTER REPLACED

NEW CARPET, DOOR PANELS, SEAT COVERS & DRIVERSIDE LOWER SEAT FOAM,
THE SEATS ARE AMAZINGLY COMFORTABLE! (THE WIFE GAVE ME THAT LOOK AS
I TYPED THIS, BUT SHE KNOWS IT'S TRUE, LOL.)

NEW HEADLIGHT VACUUM LINES
TRANSMISSION REPLACED WITH TCI REBUILT, BUT THE ORIGINAL 350 COMES
WITH IT, I WAS GOING TO HAVE IT REBUILT WHILE OUT BUT NEVER DID.

CAR HAS SIDE PIPES, BUT I HAVE A WHOLE WELDED DUAL EXHAUST WITH
TURBO MUFFLERS AND CAT THAT I WILL INCLUDE THAT I BOUGHT FROM MID
AMERICA 3 YEARS AGO AND USED A FEW TIMES, IT IS MORE QUIET THAN THE
SIDE PIPES, BUT HAS A NICE MELLO RUMBLE TO IT.

HAS A REPLACED AM/FM RADIO FROM THE SAME ERA WHICH WORKS GREAT,
BUT THE LIGHT TO SEE THE CHANNELS IS OUT
NEW DOOR HANDLES
NEW MOTOR/TRANS MOUNTS
U JOINTS REPLACED
BALL JOINTS
BRAKES ARE STILL GOOD
GAS TANK WAS OUT AND CLEANED WITH NEW SENDING UNIT INSTALLED
TRANS COOLER
HEAVY DUTY RADIATOR

THE RUSTED OUT RADIATOR SUPORT WAS REPLACED WITH A NEW ONE AND
NEW MOUNTS (THEY ALL ROT OUT ON THE BOTTOM WHERE YOU CAN'T SEE)

NEW FAN SHROUD
FAN CLUTCH WAS REPLACED
REBUILT ORIGINAL STEERING BOX
STEERING SETUP WAS REBUILT

BRAKE BOOSTER AND MASTER CHANGED A FEW YEARS AGO, BUT LIKE
EVERYTHING ELSE THAT'S BEEN CHANGED, HAS 300 MILES ON IT



Don't know if I got it all, but there was alot done on this car and it runs great. The
original carb is still on the car which runs fine but I would probably get it rebuilt.
The tci transmision may need a pan gasket because it has a slow leak, maybe
from sitting. I use the car for leisure only and it has never been raced or abused
since I had it. The wheels are in good shape but has a few small nicks in them
here and there. The body is very clean, the paint is in driver quality shape with it's
minor nicks here and there but over all not bad.The car drives great. The car has
tilt/telescopic steering column which has very little play in it but not dangerous to
drive, just keep in mind that this is a 33 year old car even though alot has been
changed, but not everything. When I had the interior out I installed hush mat on
the floor, which gives it more of a solid feel, you don't hear the echo of the
undercarriage as much while driving. I have replaced the front speakers with new,
and have the new rear speakers that I will put in this week. Oh, and the ac unit is
complete, but the belt needs to be installed (I have a new one) and the unit needs
to be charged, I am uncertain if it works because I had never used it and the
cruise control is disabled. Any questions just email me or call me anytime at:
908-420-7854 between 9am-9pm. Thank you.
