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.
