1978 Chevrolet Corvette Additional Info:

With some reluctance, I've decided to sell my 1978 Silver Anniversary Edition Corvette. She just doesn't get driven enough and I've got me eyes set on another project. I've owned her for 13 years and I'm the 3rd owner. The second owner worked for a Corvette restoration shop in Pennsylvania and this car was a personal project of his. After buying it from the original owner, he repainted the entire car and it's got a beautiful finish. The clear coat is out of this world... very shiny! When I purchased the car it had 76K miles on it. I replaced the oyster/white carpet with a kit from Al Knoch and also installed the heat shield underneath to help deflect heat in the cabin. The seats, door panels, and dash are all original. I have replaced the radio with a Panasonic CD/radio standard den and matching speakers.The engine was professionally removed, rebuilt, repainted, and reinstalled. No corners were cut. Mangaflow dual mufflers were installed and it sounds very tough! The A/C has been converted to R134 and cools well. The clock does not work but all other dash gauges work just fine. The tires are 1 year old BFGoodrich Radial T/A's and have less than 700 miles on them. Many front end components, bushings, etc, have been renewed and alignment is perfect. You may notice the front end is slightly lower than most other 78's. I cut a half coil off of the front springs to bring it down. It gives the car a much "meaner" look and rakes it down in the front end. Rear brakes and calipers were replaced last year with OE products from ZIP Corvette. The original spare is still in place and jack is still in the original black leather bag. T-Tops come with original vinyl bags/cases.
The passenger door has one blemish that occurred during a music video shoot when the camera suction cup came loose. The car ran over and destroyed a high-end camera and it popped up to scratch the passenger door. The blemish has been covered with touch-up paint and is only noticeable when close to the door.
The Corvette comes with custom super soft fabric cover for indoor garage use only. This vette has been babied for the 13 years I've owned it. It's only seen rain a couple times when I got caught out in a storm. It's mainly just driven around town but each year I drive it from Richmond, Virginia to Carlisle, Pennsylvania to show it in the annual 'Corvettes at Carlisle' event. It's always made the trip without an issue. Please message me if you have any questions about the car or would like to see more pictures. I have plenty more to share.
Local pickup available in Virginia or buyer would pay shipping cost. Please message me to work something out.
Thanks for your interest and happy bidding.
