Transmission: 3 Speed Automatic
Mileage: 48,145 ( actual )

For sale in our St. Louis showroom is a Silver Anniversary Edition 1978 Chevrolet Corvette. Powering this 25th Anniversary Corvette is an L48 350 CID V8 with the 3 speed 350 automatic transmission in charge of transferring the power to the pavement.

This 25th Anniversary Corvette features a two tone silver over gray exterior paint, which was an added cost of $399 to the sticker price, with all the anniversary emblems and badges. The black leather interior is in very good condition throughout. The Corvette received a much needed face lift in 1978. Due to the 25th anniversary year, all 1978 Corvettes received silver anniversary nose and fuel door emblems. The most notable change was the new fastback rear window. The fixed fastback rear window provided greater aerodynamics and more cargo/storage room behind the seat, not to mention better visibility in the rear of the vehicle. The Interior saw a few upgrades as well. The door panels were redesigned, and an actual glove box was added on the passenger side of the dash, which replaced the map pockets that were in the same position on previous models. The speedometer and the tachometer were redesigned to match the center console gauges that were introduced in 1977. Some new options were available in 1978 as well, power locks, dual rear speakers, power antenna, and a CB radio. This 78' Corvette has just 48,145 original miles on the odometer, and is ready for the new owner to put a few more on it.

1979 Chevrolet Corvette

1979 Chevrolet Corvette


Engine: 6.2L LS3 V8
Transmission: 5 Speed Manual
Mileage: 11,080 ( undocumented )

Do you want the timeless classic looks of a C3 Corvette but need it to perform and have the reliability of a brand-new street rod? If you answered YES then this 1979 Chevrolet Corvette dressed in a beautiful dark blue paint is well worth your time to consider adding to your collection or just being driven and enjoyed like it’s ment to be. Looking at the exterior of this car it has been meticulously cared for and maintained to retain its original glory. The aftermarket American Racing wheels are the only part that gives a hint to the many years of work that have been spent upgrading and improving on the overall performance and quality of drivability this car has to offer! The current owner has enjoyed this car for the past 18 years and the majority of the work has been performed in the last 8 years so there are not many miles that have been put on the powertrain. Popping the hood on this machine is what reveals the LS3 6.2 Liter GM crate engine that propels this car down any roadway with more than enough power. You could even say there is 20lbs of engine in this 5lb Vette. Many man hours were spent making sure this new generation of power plant was able to fit and perform great in the engine bay but that same train of thought was also put into every inch of this car. Let’s not forget the 5-speed manual Tremec transmission with Hurst conversion components that is linked up to this LS engine we can’t quit talking about. Not only does this transmission allow you to keep up with the power band of the engine but the extra gears allow for lower rpms at highway speeds. When looking through the window of this Vette the only thing that gives away that it is not a stock Oyster colored 1979 interior is the shift pattern next to factory shifter that has 5 speeds. Even The aftermarket gauges that are looking back at the driver give a respectful nod to the cars classic past but also help monitor all of the vitals of the car. Tasked with the job of getting the power to the ground would be the GM 10-bolt rearend that houses a set of 3:55 gears. This car is one that looks great but is very understated when you get a chance to look back through the years of receipts documenting the work and attention to detail that was put forth to keep with the styling of classic Corvettes but bring the car into the performance realm of any of today’s modern muscle cars but for a fraction of the price. You can view this 1979 Chevrolet Corvette in greater detail including HD pictures and an HD video of it running and driving at Gatewayclassiccars.com. If you are interested in purchasing this vehicle or have more questions regarding it please call us at (303) 872-4722 or email us at Denver@gatewayclassiccars.com.

1978 Chevrolet Corvette

1978 Chevrolet Corvette


Engine: 350 CID V8
Transmission: 3 Speed Automatic
Mileage: 52,452 ( actual )

If you are looking for a low mileage classic Corvette than look no further than this 25 Anniversary 1978 Chevrolet Corvette! With 52,452 miles registering on the odometer this thing is just begging to be taken out on the road and enjoyed for many years to come. The Anniversary 'Vettes introduced many styling upgrades that would continue to the end of C3 production, including the deep chin spoiler, the fastback roofline, and ducktail spoiler, and many would consider this the pinnacle of style. The two-tone silver paint on the exterior looks just as great in the shade as it does in the sunlight! If you ask me one of the best features these cars had is the T-tops roof! These seal just as tight as the day they were new to keep any inclement weather out but can also be removed in a jiffy to allow the sunshine in and the wind to blow through your hair as you cruise down the road. Under the hood you’ll find the original 350 cubic inch V8 which is rated at 185 horsepower. Backing the engine is a 3-speed automatic transmission. While sitting behind the seat you are welcomed by the factory dash and gauge cluster sure to transport you back to the days when these cars ruled the road. Silver cloth bucket seats keep you and any passenger comfortable no matter what your driving style. Radial tires and alloy wheels add to the sporty looks of the exterior while keeping to the original great looks of this car.

1978 Chevrolet Corvette


Engine: 350 CID L48 V8
Transmission: TH-350 Auto
Mileage: 48,153 ( actual )

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.

1980 Chevrolet Corvette

1980 Chevrolet Corvette


Engine: L48
Transmission: 3-Speed Automatic
Mileage: 61,128 ( undocumented )

We are happy to offer for sale at our Gateway Classic Cars Saint Louis Showroom this 3-Speed Automatic 1980 Chevrolet Corvette. This is a third generation Corvette, patterned after the Mako Shark II concept car, which was introduced for the 1968 model year and was in production until 1982. C3 coupes featured the first use of T-top removable roof panels. 1981 was the final year this vehicle was built in Saint Louis. The first thing you may think of when you see this classic from Chevrolet is a very unpopular song called 'Little Red Corvette' by a marginally talented musician who sometimes went by the name of 'Prince', but at other times went by a symbol and had a fascination of what happens when you marry the colors red and blue together. As far smooth running, powerful sounding, and easy transition to the higher speeds, this 1980 Chevrolet Corvette with a L48 underneath the hood is everything that you would expect. When we took this vehicle into our inventory everything worked perfectly, except for the interior dome light. Recently replacement work included: New Steering Gear-box, New Interior Door Panels on the Driver and Passenger Door, New Power Window Switches in the Center Console, and New Door/Latch Assemblies in the Driver and Passenger Door. In short, you have every reason to inquire further about this 1980 Chevrolet Corvette by viewing it in greater detail, including HD pictures and an HD video of the car running and driving at our website - http://www.gatewayclassiccars.com. For even more information, please call 618-271-3000 or email STL@GatewayClassicCars.com to speak with one of our knowledgeable sales consultants.
