1978 Chevrolet Corvette

Near Mint condition, frame off restoration (at 73773 miles) mild custom 1978 Chevrolet Corvette, 75,324 current miles. This car must be seen and driven, no disappointments here with this American Classic, it's gorgeous and a great investment! Represented to me upon purchase this was a 5 year (completed around 2010, 400 + man hour restoration that went into controlled Environment storage after completion, used occasionally afterwards. This amazing Vette has all new interior including black leather seats, rugs, door panels, more. Rebuilt 350 motor (non-matching) estimated around 350 HP, rebuilt turbo 350 transmission with shift kit, all new brakes, suspension, fuel/brake lines, etc. T-Tops are like new. Laser straight body and paint are amazing, pull into a cruise night or car show and you will get a crowd very quickly. Options include: PW/PB/Rear defogger/AC (R134 conversion) /Cruise/tilt-telescopic wheel/convenience group/black leather seats/originally painted single tone silver. I have an owners manual, dealer invoice, GM Heritage documentatio, dealer brochures, more. Car rides like a dream, driven only to cruise nights/car shows, runs great, true custom fabricated dual exhaust with dual performance CAT', with Vortex high Performance mufflers. Spare tire carrier and jack included, no spare tire. I carry a 12 volt small compressor that will be included with sale. Car has a nice deep sound but is not obnoxious. Great sounding Pioneer AM/FM in dash stereo with CD player and remote control with automatic power antenna, sounds great. Custom hand painted pinstriping (see photo's). This restored pristine Vette is priced based on the high quality restoration, and ready to go. Recent work: new battery, oil/filter change, new anti-freeze, flushed brake fluid, greased, new Halogen Headlights, more. Clear type "A" NJ title showing actual mileage. Headlights work fine, as do all items except those listed otherwise. Starts easy with the Edelbrock 4 Barrell carb with electric choke. I believe rear end ratio is 3:55 based on RPM's at 60 MPH. Tires are 95%, BFG 235/70R15 TA Radials.

Car is to be inspected by buyer, as this is still a used car, all sales final, no returns, no warranty and no refunds. Buyer pays all shipping charges. Car released once all funds clear and a signed Bill of Sale, that I will provide. Payment via wire transfer only with a cash deposit $500 via PayPal within 24 hours. Call for full details, this beautiful car will not last long, private seller, contact phone 908-963-4854, ask for Joe. Call for complete disclosure. Disclosing known items at time of sale : the following items are present but either do not work or work intermittently: cruise/clock/cigarette lighter/rear defroster. Heater/AC blower motor sometimes makes noise, varying speed it will go away. This does not always happen. I am a very fussy Private seller who buys only the highest quality collector cars, dealers welcome, no 3rd party solicitors please. Car is fully show detailed. I can arrange shipping for buyer, paid for via buyer.

There are plenty of 78 Corvettes out there in the $10,000 - $15,000 price range, but not likely you will get a car of this quality restoration.
