1978 Chevrolet Corvette Indy Pace Car Edition

Seven Hills Motorcars is very proud to offer this numbers matching 1978 Corvette Pace Car Edition in beautiful original condition with only 74,955 original miles. This Corvette looks nice, runs well, and is an awesome driver. The Pace Car and special edition Corvettes draw a great premium over their standard Corvette counterparts. This is an excellent opportunity to own a classic 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 years to come. The low original mileage is verified not only by the condition of the car, but also the clear Ohio title, pictured below, showing the mileage as "Actual." Please peruse all of the photos, list of numbers, video, and information below to get a true sense of how nice and clean this Corvette really is.

I have personally put over 25 miles on this Pace Car and during that time is was totally reliable with no issues at all and a pleasure to drive.

This Corvette is completely "Numbers Matching." The last six digits of the VIN are stamped on the engine pad, which is pictured below, indicating that this is the original engine that was installed in the car at the factory in St. Louis. The transmission is also original with the last six digits of the VIN stamped on the main case and pictured below. All of the paint and trim codes are also correct for this Corvette.

This Corvette is undeniably verified as an original authentic Pace Car Edition by the special VIN sequence, separate from normal Corvettes of the year. The difference is in the eighth digit of the VIN. Only Pace Cars have a "9" in that position while all other Corvettes have a "4." The car is also verified as a real Pace Car by the trim tag, pictured below, showing the correct 2-tone paint and interior codes, and the original dealer paperwork that is included.

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.
