Seller's Description - 1978 Corvette
Gateway Classic Cars of Houston is proud to present this very low mileage 1978 Chevrolet Corvette Indianapolis 500 Pace Car Edition. The 1978 Indy 500 Pace Car marked the first time a Corvette was chosen as the pace car for the Indy 500, and happened to be the 25th anniversary of the Corvette. This extremely well-cared for Corvette was purchased by its second owner in 1981 and has remained in the family since then. Powered by its original (numbers-matching) L82 350 CID small block engine, backed by its original TH350 3-speed automatic, this car's odometer is showing what the owner states to be 9258 original miles. The L82 was the performance-oriented choice over the L48 option, and in 1978 was putting out 220HP (vs 185HP for the L48). Only 6,502 Indianapolis 500 Pace Car edition Corvettes were built, ensuring that they will continue to become harder to find as time goes on and more of them go by the wayside.

The Pace Car edition's special black over silver paint scheme is highlighted by a red pin stripe just below the separation line between the black upper and silver lower and mimics the red accent line at the outer edges of each of the special slotted aluminum wheels. The Pace Car editions also got a special silver interior, which included seats that were originally designed for the upcoming 1979 model year Corvettes. Silver mirrored glass T-tops topped off the black and silver color theme. The 1978 Pace Car Corvettes also had a special VIN numbering sequence, which was also another Corvette first.

This car tracks straight as an arrow and sounds fantastic. This 1978 Corvette Indy 500 Pace Car will have you longing to make it to the weekend so you can take it out for a spin! Additional features and options on this 1978 Corvette Indy 500 Pace Car include cold Air Conditioning, Aluminum Wheels, AM/FM/Cassette Radio, Cruise Control, Glass T-tops, Leather Interior, Power Brakes, Power Locks, Power Steering, Power Windows, Radial Tires, Rear Window Defroster, Seat Belts, and Tilt Wheel.
