- Description: This 1978 Chevrolet Corvette is a Pace Car tribute. So that means you not only get desirable features like the T-tops and V8 power, but it also has one of the most distinct and coordinated color packages inside and out. The ‘78 Indy 500 Pace Cars are now legendary. They had a comprehensive silver and black two-tone with awesome details like the color contrast to add definition to the cowl hood, and practically everything was divided by a bright red pinstripe. Plus, all 1978 cars have the special 25th-anniversary badging. And there’s plenty of sporty style with the polished alloys and full body kit – including the extended rear spoiler. So it’s great to find a detailed tribute. This gets the color theme and decals right in an overall fit and finish that will never make you nervous about hitting the open road. What we like about this one is that it’s a value-priced tribute to the official pace car replicas. So you can enjoy a distinct car that’s an easy driver, or maybe you want to have a wild project that could use some Indy 500-style flair. This is what an affordable and stylish replica offers you. The silver interior was one of the most distinctive parts of the pace cars, and it was the Corvette’s silver anniversary. So it’s great to see this one properly done in silver. This includes dying pieces the right color and having an ultra-comfy set of silver leather bucket seats. Just like the factory pace cars, this comes loaded with premium features, like power windows, a tilt/telescopic steering column, full gauges, and provisions for air conditioning (it will need servicing to blow cold again.) Even the classic AM/FM stereo with 8-track is still working. So it’s time to hit eBay and find your favorite classic rock cartridges. After all, you’re going to need the best driving music when you take out the T-tops and hit the road for some fun. Under the hood is a tidy presentation of the 350 cubic-inch V8. This is a year-correct motor but a later updated one. You can also spot newer essential components that keep this a strong runner. It’s this hardy nature that makes it feel like such a nice driver. It’s also true because you have the best in all-around cruising features like power steering, a three-speed automatic transmission, four-wheel power disc brakes, and a fully independent sports suspension. Currently on a rebuilt title, this is a fun Corvette with a fun personality and plenty of features. It makes for a car that’s fun to drive on day one, and a great way to create an interesting pace car style custom. Call today!!!
