Seller's Description - 1978 Corvette
THE VETTE NET is a professional Corvette brokerage network and proud Lifetime Business Member of the National Corvette Museum. Thanks for stopping by to view this two-owner 25th Anniversary Corvette located in MICHIGAN.

IMPORTANT DETAILS: Nineteen seventy-eight marked the twenty fifth anniversary for Corvette and Chevrolet celebrated the occasion with an extensive redesign. The most obvious is the large rear window that greatly increased the available luggage space.

These classic Corvettes were built for comfortable highway cruising and this one certainly is a fine example.

Under the hood you will see it has the L48 engine that is mated to a Muncie 4-speed transmission and Positraction differential. The owner reports the complete driveline appears factory original.

He purchased the Vette in 1981 and is the second owner.

Currently, the odometer shows only 51,577 miles when the Vette was placed in storage.
