1978 Chevrolet Corvette 25th Ann.

This 1978 Corvette 25th Anniversary has sustained its desirability well after America's sportscar celebrated its quarter-century. With gorgeous two tone paint, eautiful red cloth interior, -tops, nd its original V8 under the hood, t's a great entry-level 'Vette that will get you into all the big events, in or place, nd put a smile on your face every time you crack the throttle.1978 was the first year of the C3 fastback styling, nd combined with the two-tone paint, he results are a homerun. This commemorative coupe is less known than the gray/black pace cars, ut the two shades of silver separated by a pinstripe has a monochrome level of cool that still turns heads today. In fact, ou're looking at a recent respray of the factory colors, hich ensures that both silver hues look fresh in the sunlight. While chrome was at a minimum in these years, here are two nice pieces of brightwork that outshines both sliver paint jobs. The wheels are done in the same look-at-me polish of the pace car, ut real enthusiasts flock to see the shiny the 25th anniversary badge on the hood.Red cloth helps with some aggressive attitude inside. All the upholstery seems to be in amazingly original condition, hich is especially nice to see because it is often changed on many of today's silver anniversary Corvettes. The rarity might make it desirable, ut there's also a functional side, oo. After all, f you park your Corvette for an hour in the sunlight with the top open, ou'll feel much better sitting in a cloth bucket seat than the leather ones. Regardless, nce you start up the car you can control your own climate with the air conditioning. A/C is just one of a long list of desirable factory features that also includes, ower windows, ower locks, ilt/telescoping steering wheel, nd cruise control. There's an aftermarket AM/FM/cassette stereo installed, ut you'll also get the original unit to swap back in if desired. This is a car that was meant to be driven, o the leather-wrapped steering wheel feels great in your hands, nd the shifter for the 3-speed automatic transmission falls easily to hand just inches away.The original, atching-numbers 350 cubic inch V8 still lives under the hood. It has been dressed up with a dash of extra chrome, nd the valve covers have been given a coat of handsome blue paint. Overall, he cleanliness of this engine bay is proof of how much care has been taken over the last three decades with this celebratory Corvette (we've got the original owner's manual and plenty of maintenance receipts to back up this level of care too). In fact, he 25th Anniversary cars were seen as one of the first true collector Corvettes out of the factory, nd often these were not maintained just simply because they were locked away without seeing any use. Thankfully, his one shows all the hints of enough driving to keep this coupe healthy without becoming a high-mileage car. We suggest practice at least the same level of maintenance through road use, ust like every classic car. Besides, his 'Vette has all the right road trip features with its smooth V8, hree-speed automatic transmission, ower steering and four-wheel power disc brakes.This 1978 Corvette is an investment that begs to be driven. It doesn't get much better than that. Call now!!
