1978 Chevrolet Corvette 25th anniversary model Additional Info:

I am putting my 1978 Chevrolet Corvette up for sale. I purchased it in 2011 and worked on it extensively to get her in tip-top shape. Highlights are 25thanniversary model, 4-speed manual transmission, L-82 engine, true dual exhaust, brand new clutch assembly and steering box, and many more listed below. I am asking about $9,500 OBO for the Corvette. Moved on to another project vehicle and rather someone else enjoy this beast. Just asking for my initial purchase amount back, not factoring any of the giant amount of dollars spent below in the listing. Listed on here to help however possible to ship it anywhere.
