With its factory bright red appearance brighter leather interior a numbers-matching L82 V8 four-on-the-floor and an affordable price means you're going to have to act quickly if you want this 1978 Chevrolet Corvette in your garage. Most Corvettes of this year you see keep close to the '78 pace car's mute silver color scheme but this one goes in a very different direction. This coupe is bold with its factory-correct red paint and we suspect much of it is the same color that was applied at the St. Louis factory. In fact as you dig deeper you will see that this coupe is quite original throughout. That's nice to see on a '78 because it was the first year the C3 switched to the new fastback styling. The painted bumpers seem to favor the sleeker silhouette. And while chrome was kept at a minimum it really makes the optional aluminum wheels a true shining standout. Inside is beige leather that looks great against the exterior red. That's a good thing because the T-tops allow you to open up to the world and let them all see this unbeatable color combo anytime you want. The interior is a true survivor so you might see signs of some use but overall you'll marvel of the level or care there's been to keep it so complete after nearly four decades. Like any good Corvette of the era this one comes loaded with power windows tilt wheel electric rear defogger and an upgraded AM/FM/cassette stereo. For the driver you get a comfortable leather-wrapped three-spoke steering wheel. Beyond that is the large speedometer and tachometer package in front and a full gauge package prominently to the side. And of course that big bold chrome shifter in the middle is like a beacon for your right hand. The engine is the optional (and numbers-matching) L82 350 cubic-inch V8. This higher compression motor was a must-have for the performance fans in 1978 because it offered 19% more horsepower than the standard Corvette V8. Just like the rest of the car the engine bay is highly detailed and very original – it's even still running a Rochester four-barrel carburetor! You get complete control over this motor thanks to the close ratio Muncie M21 four-speed manual transmission – a true rarity in 'Vettes from the mid-70s. So now you get to choose with the quick switch of a gears if the trip is going to be mild or wild. Owing a well-sorted car like this is about being able to go out and take it for a drive on a whim and that's why the power steering fully independent suspension and four-wheel disc brakes are great features to have. The price is right; the colors are right; and the four-speed is irresistible. This is the affordable and original Corvette experience you've been searching for. Call now!!
