Vehicle Story

This 1978 Corvette Pace Car is a two-owner, 32,662-mile example powered by the original L48 350ci V8 mated to a Turbo Hydra-Matic automatic transmission. The car was recently serviced with a fresh oil change and new battery before smog testing and registration. Standard equipment includes heat and air conditioning, power steering, and power brakes, and a new AM/FM/CD player with speakers has been installed. This Corvette is now offered with original owner's books and literature and a clear California title in the seller's name.

The exterior features a two-tone black and silver finish with red pinstripes to commemorate the car used in the 1978 Indianapolis 500. Style changes for the Corvette's 25th anniversary included the addition of a fastback-shaped rear window and optional removable glass roof panels. The seller reports that the car has been garage kept.

Goodyear Eagle GT II tires are mounted on standard, red-striped silver wheels. Standard equipment includes power-assisted steering and power disc brakes at all four corners. 

The interior is complete with two-tone bucket seats and matching gray door panels, dash, steering wheel, and carpet. The steering wheel and seats have been protected with aftermarket leather and cloth coverings, respectively, and amenities include heat and air conditioning, power windows, and removable glass roof panels with storage under the back glass. The seller reports replacing the original 8-track system with a new AM/FM/CD head unit wired to new speakers.

Instrumentation is housed in a square panel that was revised for the year and consists of a 140-mph speedometer, 5.5k tachometer, a clock, and gauges for coolant temperature, oil pressure, battery voltage, and fuel level. The odometer currently shows 32,661 original miles. 

Power is delivered by a 4-barrel carburetor-equipped L48 350ci V8, which produced a factory-rated 185 horsepower when new. It is paired with a Turbo Hyrda-Matic 3-speed automatic transmission. The engine was recently serviced by the seller with a fresh oil change and the installation of a new battery. 

The original owner's literature and books will go with the sale.
