Corvette 25th Anniversary
#'S MATCHING L-82, RARE 4-SPEED MANUAL, OYSTER LEATHER INTERIOR, NICE/CLEAN CAR
A 1978 Chevrolet Corvette in its cool two-tone silver anniversary colors, two tops, A/C, four-speed, and an enhanced L82 heart... So yes, this already has everything you want in a '78, and that's before you even notice the affordable price.
The two-tone silver paint job on the 25th Anniversary Corvette is still one of the most handsome combinations to come out of 1970s Detroit. It goes far beyond just coordinating two handsome colors. It adds delicate pinstriping in all the right places, including extra ones to highlight the C3's curvy styling along the power bulge in the hood and the Coke bottle fenders. It looks like a custom paintjob, which is why it has remained one of the most sophisticated themes every applied by General Motors. The fastback roofline was new. It not only improved aerodynamics but increased cargo capacity, and in the process, these special editions launched a new era for the third generation coupes. Spoilers front and rear give this an aggressive appearance, and the final touch are the bright 15-inch alloy wheels that prove even a silver anniversary coupe looks good with a little brightwork.
The Oyster leather interior is a cool standout. While most anniversary models received the standard silver leather buckets, the Oyster was available but seldom chosen. That makes this factory-correct setup an interesting sight to Corvette fans. This bright interior trim is repeated on the door panels, center console, carpets, and even a special anniversary steering wheel wrapped in the same white leather. The flat-folding seats give good access to the newly expanded rear storage, so weekend getaways are even easier in this classic car. A special edition like this comes loaded with features, including a full gauge package, power windows, electric rear defogger, sport mirrors, power door locks, tilt wheel, and air conditioning. That last one is especially important because you get both the body-colored roof panels and the glass ones in this sale. So you truly get to choose how much sunshine you want inside, and the A/C lets you dial in the temperature so it's comfortable even with the T-tops out.
The engine is the optional L82 350 cubic-inch V8. This higher compression motor was a must-have for the performance fans in 1978 because it offered 17% more horsepower than the standard Corvette V8. But this one goes even further with an upgrade to Hedman headers that means a much deeper sound out of the dual exhaust and an extra dose of power over the other L82 Anniversary Edition cars out there. In fact, just in town driving is fun as you develop a sold hit of power low in the rev range that gets your heart racing and the dual exhaust growling. Plus, while most came with automatic transmissions, this one gives you the most out of the V8 with the control of a four-speed manual. Add in good anytime driving features like power steering and four-wheel disc brakes, and you'll this Corvette is for drivers.
Rare features on a 25th Anniversary Edition coupe, plus desirable documentation like the owner's manual and title docs, and all together it equals a great enthusiast's sports car. The fact that it's within reach of everyone should tell you that the 'Vette you want is already getting plenty of attention from others, too. Call today!!!
