1978 Chevrolet Corvette Silver Anniversary Edition #'s Match

Seven Hills Motorcars is proud to offer this completely numbers matching 1978 Silver Anniversary Edition Corvette in fantastic driver condition and priced to sell with only 74,575 original miles. This Silver Anniversary Edition looks fantastic, runs great, and is an excellent driver. It is totally solid with great lines. The Corvette is finished in the beautiful and highly desirable color combination of RPO B27 Silver Anniversary Two Tone (13, 07) over Black Leather (192) interior, which is the correct and original color combination as verified by the codes on the trim tag, pictured below. Most Silver Anniversary Edition Corvettes came with Oyster interior. Black is much more desirable and rare. This is an excellent opportunity to own a wonderful classic special edition Corvette that is ready to be used and enjoyed at an unbeatable value. One could easily buy this car now and sell it for more than the purchase price in the years to come as the market on C3 Corvette is hot right now and on the rise, this is especially true for the Silver Anniversary Edition. The low original mileage is supported not only by the condition, but also the clear Ohio title, pictured below, showing the mileage as, "Actual." Please peruse all of the photos, numbers, and video below to get a true sense of how original, correct, and nice this Corvette really is.

I have personally put over 20 miles on this Corvette. During that time the car was flawlessly reliable with no issues at all and a true pleasure to drive. According to the previous owner this Corvette has been owned by one family since new. We purchased the car from an older gentleman outside of Cincinnati who owned the car since the late 1990's. His sister bought this Corvette brand new and owned it until her death when her brother took ownership. The car comes with the original owners manual and some receipts for service and maintenance over the years.

This Silver Anniversary Corvette is absolutely loaded with highly desirable original options such as the YJ8 aluminum wheels, 8-track player, air conditioning, tilt/telescopic steering column, sport mirrors, power windows, power locks, power antenna, and the 25th Anniversary paint scheme.

Please note that all 1978 Corvettes wore the "25th Anniversary" badge. However, only certain cars, such as this example, were the actual Silver Anniversary Editions with the Silver Anniversary regular production order (RPO), "B2Z." This is verified by the trim tag that is pictured below showing the paint to be 13 for the bright Silver upper sections and 07 for the Dark Gray lower section, which was only used in 1978 and only for the B2Z Corvettes, on the darker lower portion.

This Corvette is completely "Numbers Matching." The last six digits of the VIN are stamped on the engine pad, which is pictured below, and the engine is original to the car. The transmission is also original with the last six digits of the VIN stamped on the main case and pictured below.

As a side note, this Corvette is not a dealer auction vehicle. We hand pick each car after careful inspection. Our Corvettes come from owners who expect their car to go to someone that will give the vehicle the same care and attention as they did. We invite and encourage you to examine the car in person or have the car inspected. Please take the time to scrutinize each picture. We photograph each vehicle to the greatest extent so you can feel confident about your purchase. If you have a question about the Corvette, just give us a call.
