The 1978 Chevrolet Corvette 25th Anniversary edition cars are always in demand. After all, they are loaded two-tone V8 cruisers. That makes them great drivers that are instantly distinctive. And it only gets better when a sharp-looking example is also this affordable.
The 1978 car was special. It launched a revised and more aerodynamic C3, and it was also the Corvette's silver anniversary. Chevrolet celebrated it with one of the most handsome combinations to come out of the 1970s. It goes far beyond just coordinating two handsome colors. The two-tone silver was exclusive to the 25th anniversary cars, and the way the darker color hugs the body line and runs over the fenders really seems to show off the best of the design. Plus, the way the full package radiates in the sunlight is the telltale sign of an investment in a quality respray later in life. Add in the right anniversary badging and correct alloy wheels, and it has the look of a dignified classic that represents this landmark time well.
The mahogany interior is absolutely contrast in color to the exterior two-tone, but it harmonizes with its level of sophistication. So you'll love to leave the T-tops out to show off the full color package. And another reason why this looks so distinctive is because there has been a good investment updating the fundamentals while still keeping the factory-correct color. Newer seat covers (with Corvette embroidery), plush carpeting, taut door panels, and a smooth dash really make it a nice place to spend some time. You have desirable factory features like power windows, power locks, and provisions for air conditioning (it will need servicing to blow cold again.) There are even the right driver-oriented upgrades like the padded armrest and an AM/FM/CD stereo with USB input to upgrade your driving music. The smooth wrapped steering wheel, tilt/telescopic column, and full gauge package are also all there to instantly remind you this car was made for driving.
Under the hood is proper 350 cubic-inch V8 power with a four-barrel carburetor on top. The odometer is believed to reflect actual mileage, and there are some newer elements, like the Chevrolet performance air grabber and matching air topper. This is a strong-runner that's ready to hit the road. In fact, as you look at the undercarriage photos, you're going to spot newer suspension elements, including the front A-arms, ball joints, and bushings. It gives this coupe added confidence on the road. The fully independent suspension and four-wheel power disc brakes make this a great sports car. And the three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and cruise control make this classic a great anytime driver for near or far.
This is the distinct 25th Anniversary coupe that was made to shine bright and drive well. So if you love a classic you can enjoy, you know this is the one. Call today!!!
