Originally assembled on April 27, 1978, this 1978 Corvette Indianapolis 500 Pace Car L82 is in particularly nice condition, showing just 8,324 miles on its odometer! Although we can only document the miles with a 2002 bill of sale from a very reputable Corvette dealer and odometer readings from repair records since 2002, there is no doubt in our mind that the miles on this car are original, based on the overall originality and condition of this car’s parts. Furthermore, this was a RIDICULOUSLY low mileage car up until 2002, when it was sold to its most recent owner with just 42 miles showing on its odometer at that time. This car’s paint is in good to very good condition, with a nice shine. EVERY piece of exterior glass on this car shows a correct date code, including the t-tops, which were often changed from car to car even on low mileage examples such as this one. Exterior door handles are in good to very good condition, with no obvious finish or rubbing issues. Weatherstripping and taillights appear to be original as well. Slotted aluminum wheels are in good to very good condition with very good to excellent condition center caps. BF Goodrich Radial T/A raised white letter tires show full tread depth remaining at an average of 10/32nds. The interior of this 1978 Corvette Indianapolis 500 Pace Car L82 looks to be nearly all original, showing very good condition seat covers, steering wheel, dash, and center console shift plate. Gauges are in very good condition as well, with no fading and very good condition lenses. Carpet appears to be original, and is in very good condition, complete with SUPER RARE correct original floor mats, which are in overall good condition. Door panels are in good condition with strong armrests. Factory AM/FM/8 track stereo is still in place. The numbers matching L82 engine in this 1978 Corvette Indianapolis 500 Pace Car L82 shows original casting date April 10, 1978, and final assembly date April 21, 1978. Correct air cleaner, intake manifold, ignition shielding, valve covers, and air pump are all in place, and the engine compartment has been nicely detailed as well. The only underhood addition to this car appears to be a set of MSD spark plug wires. Transmission has been recently inspected and resealed by Aamco at a cost of $1,000. Frame is sold and rust-free, and the air conditioning blows nice and cold. Included with this car will be its original build sheet and owner’s manual, in addition to the previously mentioned 2002 bill of sale and all records since. This car has been fully serviced, and all instrument gauges, lights, turn signals, brakes, engine, transmission and rear-end are all in good operating condition.
