800 Derita Road, Ste. A
A factory red 1978 Chevrolet Corvette has a ton of appeal. Of course, when the 350ci V8 has been upgraded for serious power, then you start to see a sleek machine that really lives up to its speedy looks.
This was born a red coupe, but when the sunlight hits it, there's an extra hint of sleekness that tells you this has received a modern clearcoat update later in life. And having a '78 look this vibrant is absolutely worth it. This was the debut of the later C3's updated style. The new fastback profile goes nicely with the color-matched front and rear to deliver a whole new dimension to a very vintage package. The black front grille and rockers go nicely with the tinted windows to add a dark side to the bold red car. But even with this aggressive look, this also still has room for classic American brightwork on places like the window trim and iconic Rally wheels.
If you liked the way the black accents looked against the red exterior, they you'll love the all-black interior. In fact, this is looking so clean and correct, that you'll happily cruise with the T-tops out to really show it off. You've got all the right premium features, like power windows, power locks, a tilt/telescopic wheel, and an upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo for the best in modern driving tunes. And driving is what this one really does best. You have the comfy high-back bucket seats, a large speedo and tach directly in front of you, and the auxiliary readout are placed in the center of the dash so they're always easily seen.
While the 350 cubic-inch V8 was the engine of choice for the '78, this one turns it up a notch. It's quite a clean-looking crate motor that has been enhanced with the right go-fast goodies like a Holley four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock Performer intake, MSD coil, and headers that add power while adding to the rumble of the dual exhaust. This upgraded power allows you to enjoy the fully independent sports suspension to the fullest. Plus, you have all the right anytime driving features, like a three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and four-wheel power disc brakes.
This is the sleek red coupe with upgrade power and personality. So you know you need to get your hands on this deal. Call now!
