This 1978 Chevrolet Corvette is for sale in our Louisville KY showroom. 1978 marked the 25th anniversary for America’s supercar. Starting originally as a little roadster with a small 6-cylinder engine and looking like an upside-down bathtub no one back in 53 had any idea how this car would change the sports car market. This 78 is a fitting example of one of the lower production dark blue metallic cars for that year. The paint is base coat clear coat and looks strikingly good on the car. Flip the hood forward and will see a very clean engine bay with the original motor, that was reworked, siting right in place. With the bottom end completely gone thru and put back together with all new parts it runs smoother than anyone I have been in. Bored .030 over the 355 CID gives the car quite a bit more bottom end grunt. With a set of Keith Black pistons, slightly larger cam, and a freshened up set of heads, this small block is putting out way more power than original. Of course, more power more heat so the cooling system was completely overhauled ensuring that the freshly built motor would last for years to come. The transmission and rear end are in excellent condition and have just been recently serviced. Of course, if it runs good it needs to stop good and with the all new brakes on all 4 corners this Vette stops just like it should. With the power steering components being replaced, turning into a parking spot or just carving a back-country road makes life easier. Open the door and you will see one of the cleanest interiors and with it all being practically new it should be. The seats, carpet, and door panels are all new in the car and help to put this one above many on the market today. Even the wiper system was completely redone making for just an all-around solid running and driving car. If you have wanted a classic 25th anniversary but not too keen on the silver this dark blue is great route to go. Options on this 1978 Chevrolet Corvette include; AC, AM/FM Radio, Leather Interior, Power Steering, Power Brakes, Seat Belts, both sets of T Tops, and Radial Tires with Raised White Letters wrapped on Steel wheels with Beauty rings. This gorgeous 1978 Chevrolet Corvette can be seen, including an HD video, at www.gatewayclassiccars.com.

For sale in our St. Louis showroom is a rarely seen Corvette Yellow 1978 Chevrolet Corvette. I say rarely seen because the Corvette Yellow was the least produced color in 1978 at 1,243 units. Compare that to 6,502 of the Indy Pace Car black and silver combination and over 15,000 of the two-tone silver anniversary color combination and package. The Corvette Yellow paint is mostly original, there were areas repainted as part of a warranty claim shortly after its purchase that was performed in 1978. Being 40 years old, the paint does show some age, but the body lines and panels all look very good. The original dark brown leather has also aged very well, with only minor signs of wear over the years. Powering this 3-owner 1978 Corvette is the original 350 CID L48 engine. A few parts were replaced along the way, but great effort was taken to maintain originality, including having the carburetor sent off to be refurbished instead of buying a new one. Also, the valve covers were not painted, in order to preserve the markings made by the assembly line worker the day it was produced. The TH-350 automatic transmission is original to the car and shifts the power down the line beautifully. The odometer reads 48,153, which represents the actual mileage on the car. Options for this 1978 Chevrolet Corvette include: Air Conditioning, AM/FM Radio, Power Windows, Power Steering, Power Brakes, Leather Interior, Tilt/Telescopic Steering Wheel, T-Tops, Seat Belts, Raised White Letter Radial Tires, and Aluminum/Alloy Wheels. This is a great example of a surviving 78’ Corvette in a rare color that drives wonderfully.
