1978 Chevrolet Corvette Base Coupe 2-Door Additional Info:

Retirement around the corner so I must give up a few toys, one of them is my 1978 Chevrolet Corvette 25th Anniversary Edition. This one is a head turner and used at parades. In fact, it was the Car of the Month for October a few years ago on Vette Registry. I've had this Corvette for 5 years and haven't driven it but a few thousand miles. I always wanted a Corvette since I was a kid and now I have it out of my system. I bought it from a guy in Florida, who did most of the work, including the slick ground effects package. I'm not mechanically inclined so I had a mechanic go over the car and he did his magic -- it runs and drives great! It starts every time, even when it goes a few weeks without starting it starts up with a few pumps of the gas. It has just over 95,000 miles.
This T-Top beauty includes the original top covers; the tops are smoked gray. On top of that, I put brand new Hankook tires and chrome wheels on it a couple years ago -- less than 1,000 miles on them.
The clock does not work and a couple gauges don't work properly. The passenger door sticks and the passenger power window isn't working. The runs very smoothly and shifts great; handles nice; and has good power, like an eight cylinder should. The ac works but I don't run it. I don't drive it in adverse weather and it is always in the garage away from harsh sun. I love the color, which is why I bought it, but it is not the original color -- I think it was brown. It has some minor blemishes here and there. The interior is nice and the seats and doors have been updated. I am only selling the car because I am close to retirement and I bought a classic Volkswagen Beetle last year. If you have any questions feel free to contact me at 270.577.2070. I'm not making any money on the car if the reserve price is met, actually I'm losing money based on the extras I've put on it, but I consider that worth it for 5 years of pleasure. I'm willing to end the auction if someone makes an offer that I can't refuse.
