1978 Chevrolet CorvetteFor sale here, have a real nice red on red '78 Corvette as a T - Top convertable and priced very competitively to provide the next owner with some classic American muscle Summer time fun on wheels. It is equipped with the standard L48 V8 350 Small Block Chevy engine. It also has the 3 speed automatic transmission which has been resealed by the previous owner. Car is all stock and original except for the wheels and the cassette tape deck/radio system. The antenna works and retracts upon the radio being turned off. Numbers match and has been documented by the Corvettes of Auburn shop. Corvettes of Auburn have also completed my servicing needs and repairs on the car since I have had it which includes a new tachometer assembly and a complete front and rear end service, ew thermostat and housing gasket, oolant system flush, omplete carburetor rebuild and tightening any item that needed to be tightened up. Service records reflect these jobs aforementioned. Tire tread is still plentiful. I installed a new Red Top Optima battery back in November of '14 as well for better long term use out of the battery. The A/C system is intact with original compressor and lines for the R12 refrigerant, ut the downside (but fixable nonetheless) is it's not operational and would need an R134 refrigerant retrofit which any competent vintage car shop is capable of doing by all means. A new carburetor soft choke line has also been replaced as they are susceptible to wearing out due to the choke being thermally operated. New Valve Cover Gaskets have also been installed for good measure and peace of mind.
The original owner's manual is with the car as well. The car stayed local since it was bought new in Vancouver,WA and was owned by a school teacher who had it as a daily driver for a while until the previous owner before me took possession and had it for 30 or so years and only drove it seldomly as I do myself. While I avoided driving in the rain, did have to if a sprinkle came my way during a commute with the car. I would only hand wash the car to minimize water intrusion even though the seals are still in decent condition with slight wear from use over the years. Rust is very minimal and paint is in decent condition and there are no stress cracks in the fiberglass bodywork. I do have a car cover that will be included with the purchase. I also have a new genuine GM metal hood badge as well which will be included and has the box and is wrapped, hich was purchased from Corvettes of Auburn. The vacuum actuated headlights are operational as well.
You might be wondering why I'm selling this car and the reason(s) are quite simple, ith work and school, just don't have the time to enjoy it and drive it accordingly and with the PNW weather patterns, he time to drive it is not long as like as if I had lived in the Southwest etc. I figure if I sold this puppy, could curb some school related expenses down the road etc.
As for the price, am quite firm due to the fact that there are similar Corvettes out there that have double the miles and are charging the same if not more though I am open to reasonable offers. Also, his is a "turn key" car to get in, rive and enjoy, ot a concours type of vehicle. Contact me for more info and no low ball offers either, nly serious inquiries. This is a great collector's item and want the car to go to a home where it will be appreciated and taken care of given the real low miles on it. No joy rides or coming by to kick the tires kind of BS as well. Don't waste my time let alone yours, ife's short as it is. PM me if needed. I will be happy to provide the VIN upon request. Odometer has 52,4xx Miles on it. This item will be sold on a first come, irst serve basis. Feel free to contact me (Ivan) as I am the owner if you have any questions or want to see the car in person if you are a local buyer.
