eBay Classic Auto Mall | 888-227-0914 sales@classicautomall.com 1978 Chevrolet Corvette Stock 834 VIN 1Z87L8S422610 Miles 31,410 Engine Size 350 V8 Transmission Type 3 Speed Automatic Exterior Color Mahogany Interior Color Beige Description 1978 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe
Mention the name Corvette and immediately someone in the conversation will perk up and pay attention. It's a timeless American sports car and has gone through several personality changes. From the 2-seat coupe when first introduced, to a fast 50's classic, to the Stingray Versions of the 1960's and early 1970's. By the 25th year, engineers were all but finished muddling through the power struggle with emissions and the 25th anniversary Corvette was born
A 25th Anniversary Corvette who some have argued that next to the Stingrays, this is the nicest curved design. This Corvette presents in fair condition but it's all there for someone to take it, tweak it, and have a really nice version. A federal mandated ignition change for 1978 was performed, however is currently not working, hence car is started with a button that is under the front of the drivers bucket.
Mahogany fiberglass appears in good condition. Small areas of cracking and crazing are present, but sparse. A removable T top matching body color on exterior, and interior color on ceiling, comes with the car, and has the original vinyl storage bags. Original to the Corvette for 1978 wheels are all around, as are new tires, but purchased to original 1978 specs. Aerodynamic door actuators are chromed and flush with the door.
Light beige leather buckets stretch from door to door and are interrupted by a shift and power window actuator console. This console curves skyward and houses the air conditioner/heat, and fan controls. As we move upward an AM/FM radio is imbedded, as well as a cluster of gas, temp, clock, amps, and oil pressure analog gauges. A speedometer and tachometer are fronted by a stock steering wheel, showing 3 spokes and wrapped in Light Beige leather. Beige carpeting shows some staining but is in overall fair condition. Power doo locks, power windows, hidden headlights, air conditioning, power steering, as well as power brakes are present. A decent sized compartment, carpeted, is seen behind the buckets.
The original 350ci 4-barrel V8 engine is seen in a good condition engine bay. Matching numbers can be verified with photos with engine number and vin number. Engine is the specified L48 and puts out 350hp. A 3-speed automatic transmission (numbers matching) puts power down to the wheels.
A 1978 25th Anniversary Corvette presenting in fair condition. Matching numbers, all original except for a high quality repaint to match original Chevrolet Mahogany. A few items of note: Will need exhaust pipe replacement, (pre-muffler), starter issue redone to eliminate button, and a good interior exterior and engine detailing. A solid car showing 31,410 miles.
