Car history:
Posted 07/05/2019
A 1978 Chevrolet Corvette in its cool two-tone silver anniversary colors, T-tops,
A/C, and original L-82 V8 heart. It has all the best original features, and there
are even some great upgrades (like the five-speed).

The two-tone silver paint job on the 25th Anniversary Corvette is still one of
the most handsome combinations to come out of 1970s American designs. It
goes far beyond just coordinating two handsome colors. It adds delicate pinstriping
in all the right places, including extra ones to highlight the C3's curvy styling
along the power bulge in the hood and the Coke bottle fenders. It was one of
the most sophisticated paint theme when new, and so it was a solid investment
when they gave it a respray later in life. But the result is a car that looks great
in the sunshine. There's also louvers over the rear window to highlight the new
fastback roofline. It not only improved aerodynamics but increased cargo capacity,
and in the process, these special editions launched a new era for the third-generation
coupes. Spoilers front and rear give this an aggressive appearance, and the
final touch are the bright 15-inch alloy wheels that prove even a silver anniversary
coupe looks good with a little brightwork.

The black interior looks great thanks to all the right investments. The bucket
seats now have comfortable cloth inserts. Not only does that look great against
the plush black carpeting, but also this is a terrific upgrade for those who like
to drive with the T-Tops out and wear shorts. Power windows, power locks, cup
holders, and a retro-style AM/FM stereo that has a modern digital tuner offer
all the right comforts. And the air conditioning blows cold with modern R134a.
But even with all these luxuries, nothing beats the feeling of grabbing the three-
spoke sports steering wheel, watching the large speedo and tach, and gazing at
the auxiliary readouts at eye-level. And have you counted the gears on the stick
shift yet?

The engine is the optional L-82 350 cubic-inch V8. This higher compression
motor was a must-have for the performance fans in 1978 because it offered 19
percent more horsepower than the standard Corvette V8. Even just driving
around town, you'll enjoy the solid hit of power low in the rev range that gets
your heart racing, and the dual exhaust growling. And you have the ultimate
control over this with an upgrade to a Tremec five-speed manual transmission
(the original four-speed can also come with the sale.) Plus, this has more great
driving features, like the power steering, fully independent sports suspension,
and four-wheel power disc brakes. So while this one has only averaged a low
1,300 miles annually, we know you won't be able to resist adding to the odometer.

Comes with the original windows sticker, owner's manual packet, plenty of paperwork.
