1978 Chevrolet Corvette Pace Car

This car is considered the defining line where the C3 Corvette was no longer just seen as a sports car, nd people began to see them for the collector's pieces they are today. This 1978 Chevrolet Corvette Indianapolis 500 Pace Car edition is a way to pick up a steady iconic classic for under $20K.RPO Z78 radically transformed the Corvette's looks, dding the two-tone black over silver metallic paint job with a bright red pinstripe in between. The official pace car deals were so well coordinated, hat many of these special editions wear them quite proudly. Then a spoiler was added at each end to really give it an aggressive look. This was such a unique appearance for the Corvette that we're happy to see it looking so well presented on this coupe. The final piece to this package are the 15-inch alloy wheels that come with the same red stripe, ividing the silver wheels and black tires as it does on the paintwork what a cool touch, ight? The silver leather interior is perfect for this special edition car, nd it's one of the truly unique elements of a late C3s. While this car has seen some use, t is hard to tell by the condition of the interior. The carpets, oor panels, nd dashboard have all been treated with respect over the years. Pace cars came loaded with just about every option Chevy could throw at a Corvette, ncluding glass T-tops, ull gauge package, ower windows, lectric rear defogger, ir conditioning, port mirrors, ower door locks, nd a leather-wrapped tilt/telescope steering wheel. This one even benefits from an upgrade to a Pioneer AM/FM/CD stereo.Lift the hood, nd this collector's car looks like a time capsule. The 350 cubic-inch L-48 motor shows only signs of being original. This V8 appears only to have been given good routine maintenance, ithout disturbing the stock factory items. This is mated to the correct TH350 three-speed automatic that is always able to handle the torque this V8 can throw down. Chevy built these to be great cruising cars, nd so the power steering and four-wheel disc brakes really make you want to drive this coupe every weekend.This is a well-documented car with the original warranty card, nniversary literature, nd even 1978 Indianapolis 500 memorabilia. This is a true collector's Corvette that's within reach of any budget. Call today!!
