Seller's Description - 1978 Corvette
FOR SALE 
1978 CHEVROLET CORVETTE LIMITED EDITION INDIANAPOLIS 500 PACE CAR
25TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION C3
$18,000 OBO

To commemorate Corvette’s 25th anniversary, Chevrolet had negotiated with the Indianapolis Motor Speedway to allow a modified Corvette to serve as the pace car for the 1978 running of the Indianapolis 500. This was the first time the Corvette was chosen to Pace the Indy Five Hundred.
The Corvette Indy Pace Car also featured a front and rear spoiler, both of which added a more dramatic appearance to the car.    
The car featured a special, two-tone paint scheme of black over silver metallic with a bright red pinstripe between the two paint colors.
Dealers were asking up to $28,000. Base Price $13,653.00 (standard stock Vette was $9,351).
6,502 were produced, None sold at list price. 
This brought out bogus cars with modified Vin Numbers.
This cars Vin No. is 1Z8748S90067 
This car was purchased from Corvette Center of Colorado Springs, Co. on 10/24/09 with 49,540  miles on it. 

I inherited the car with 61,474 miles. It presently has 61,500 + miles.
I have owned my own 1978 Corvette since it was new. The previous owner wanted the car to belong to someone who would appreciate it and take care of it, which I do.
The problem is, I cannot drive it as much as I should and am not in the location to be able to have the items that need attention fixed. This is the reason for selling it as much as I hate to. 
The car runs great and looks great.
