NUMBER'S MATCHING L48 350 V8, 3-SPEED AUTO, PWR STEER/4-WHEEL DISC, PACE CAR!!!

The 1978 Chevrolet Corvette Indianapolis 500 Pace Car special edition is considered the defining line where the Corvette was no longer just seen as a sports car. This is where they became the true collector's pieces they are today. So to find one that is believed to have traveled less than 120 miles annually (oh yeah!) makes this possibly a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity at a collector's collectible.

Factory code RPO Z78 radically transformed the Corvette's looks, adding the two-tone black over silver metallic paint job with a bright red pinstripe in between. Then a spoiler was added at each end to really give it an aggressive look. This was such a unique appearance for the Corvette that it's terrific to have so much originality. The story that we are told in this one involves a first owner who is believed to be a former Chevrolet dealer. He had it NCRS judged and Gold Certified in 1988, and the certificate comes with the sale. He kept it for about 33 years total and sold it to the second owner who has just maintained it correctly since. So the unique factory finish shows all the right signs of being original. In fact, the largest criticism you may have about the paint would be the ... Please ask for the full description.

NUMBER'S MATCHING L48 350 V8, 3-SPEED AUTO, PWR STEER/4-WHEEL DISC, PACE CAR!!!

The 1978 Chevrolet Corvette Indianapolis 500 Pace Car special edition is considered the defining line where the Corvette was no longer just seen as a sports car. This is where they became the true collector's pieces they are today. So to find one that is believed to have traveled less than 120 miles annually (oh yeah!) makes this possibly a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity at a collector's collectible.

Factory code RPO Z78 radically transformed the Corvette's looks, adding the two-tone black over silver metallic paint job with a bright red pinstripe in between. Then a spoiler was added at each end to really give it an aggressive look. This was such a unique appearance for the Corvette that it's terrific to have so much originality. The story that we are told in this one involves a first owner who is believed to be a former Chevrolet dealer. He had it NCRS judged and Gold Certified in 1988, and the certificate comes with the sale. He kept it for about 33 years total and sold it to the second owner who has just maintained it correctly since. So the unique factory finish shows all the right signs of being original. In fact, the largest criticism you may have about the paint would be the signs of living under a cover for most of its life! That's why you have impressive originality with the special anniversary badging, beautiful redline alloys, correct Goodyear tires (possibly original) Even the ultra-low odometer is believed to represent the full actual mileage.

The silver leather interior is the perfect color for this special edition car. And the way these have been preserved reaffirms the feeling that this one has hardly ever been driven. The carpets, door panels, and dashboard have all been treated with respect over the years, too, so this is a true time capsule. Indy Pace car replicas cost nearly fifty percent more than a standard coupe, and so Chevrolet made sure that they were loaded and luxurious. The includes glass T-tops, power windows, electric rear defogger, provisions for air conditioning (it will need servicing,) sport mirrors, tilt steering column, and cruise control. This one even still has its original AM/FM/8-track stereo. But even if all you want to do is drive this collector's piece, the leather-wrapped steering wheel and full gauge package really let you enjoy America's sports car.

The engine is the numbers-matching L48 350 cubic-inch V8. This V8 appears only to have been given good routine maintenance, without disturbing the stock factory items. The result is a time capsule that's also an exceptionally strong runner. This is mated to the numbers-matching three-speed automatic transmission for a smooth-shifting grand touring experience. Chevy built these to be great cruising cars, and so the fully independent suspension, power steering, and four-wheel disc brakes really make you want to take it out every weekend and add to the low odometer.

The sale comes with both the NCRS award and window sticker in a framed presentation. This is an amazing piece of history that's ready to be someone's ultimate collectible. So do you want to be jealous or make everyone else jealous? Call today!!!
