Vehicle Story

OVERVIEW

This 48,501-mile 1978 Chevrolet Corvette was owned by the same family for the last 38 years and is powered by an L82 350ci V8 mated to a Turbo-Hydramatic three-speed automatic transmission. Equipment includes removable T-tops, air conditioning, power disc brakes, power windows, and power steering. Finished in two-tone silver metallic and charcoal silver over a black vinyl interior, this C3 Corvette is now offered by the selling dealer with a clear title.

EXTERIOR – FEATURES

The two-tone silver metallic and charcoal silver exterior features pop-up headlights, a chin spoiler, removable T-tops, dual color-keyed mirror caps, a rear spoiler, and a dual exhaust system. The selling dealer describes the original paint finish as survivor quality and notes the presence of paint chips, decal peeling on the hood, and sun fade.

EXTERIOR – WHEELS AND TIRES

Aluminum 15-inch slotted wheels are wrapped in Goodyear Eagle GT raised-white-letter tires.

INTERIOR – FEATURES

The cockpit is fitted with black vinyl bucket seats, matched to the door panels, dash, center console, and carpeting. Amenities include power windows, air conditioning, a tilt-adjustable steering column, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, a wooden shift knob, and a glove box. The selling dealer states that the driver-side T-top's interior liner is missing.

INTERIOR – GAUGES

Instrumentation includes a 140-mph speedometer, a 7,000-rpm tachometer, and gauges for the fuel level, coolant temperature, oil pressure, and voltage. The five-digit mechanical odometer reads 48,501 miles, which the selling dealer believes to be the actual miles.

ENGINE AND TRANSMISSION

The L82 350ci V8 is fed by a four-barrel carburetor and was rated at 220 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque when new. Power is sent to the rear wheels via a Turbo-Hydramatic three-speed automatic transmission. The selling dealer has provided a start-up video below.

UNDERCARRIAGE

The disc brakes and the steering system are power-assisted.
