1978 Chevrolet Corvette Pace Car
1978 Corvette Pace Car....37,637 Original Miles......Nice Driver
This car is something you can take to a car show or drive on a Sunny afternoon and not feel bad about it because it is not some trailer queen. It's a nice driver quality and great value classic Corvette. It could climb significantly in value in coming years. This is one of only 6,502 Pace Cars made in 1978. The interior is in great shape. The engine bay is in great shape. I have had the car for 2 years and only put 800 miles on it. I have spent many hours in the garage restoring it and it has been garaged and pampered since I've had it.

It has a Fresh Oil Change, 8-Track tapes for the player. It also has authentic 1978 Texas Plates and it is registered as an Antique Vehicle.
The original R-12 a/c was converted to R-134a and it has a leak somewhere in the system so the leak needs to be identified and it needs a re-charge once repaired. The A/C compressor is new so I know its not that.The paint is shiny and looks good from 10 feet away. In some areas it is really nice but in others there are flaws in the paint. The paint flaws include things that are common for a 40 year old Corvette such as rock chips, scratches, paint cracks, spider webbing, wavy urethane bumpers etc.
Definitively a head turning C3 that you won't be afraid to drive.
