1978 Chevrolet Corvette

Ladies and Gentlemen, Gateway Classic Cars of Kansas City is very pleased to announce the arrival of the silver and black! No, not the Las Vegas Raiders, this silver and black is the iconic 1978 Chevrolet Corvette Pace Car Replica!

The arrival of the 1978 Chevy Corvette would happen just a few months after the 500,000th model rolled off the St. Louis assembly line. As significant as that milestone had been as a benchmark of Corvette's success, the 1978 model would mark a second milestone - Corvette's Silver Anniversary.

Just as the Corvette had been America's only true production sports car in 1953 the 1978 Corvette continued to carry that mantle 25 years later, and with similar distinction. To further 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.

The interior of the Corvette Pace Car was directly influenced by Bill Mitchell and featured either full silver leather or leather/gray cloth upholstery and gray carpeting. Chevrolet introduced a new, thin-shell seat design that featured more lumbar support. Although these seats were originally slated for the 1979 model, the development program was accelerated so that these new seats could be introduced as part of the 1978 Pace Car package.

Additionally, all the replicas included the new glass T-tops, alloy wheels, power windows, rear window defogger, air conditioning, sports mirrors, tilt/telescopic steering wheel, a heavy duty battery, an AM/FM stereo equipped with either an eight-track tape player or a CB radio, and power door locks. In addition to these features, each Indy Pace Car Corvette replica owner would receive a set of regalia decals that they could install at their discretion. The decal set included the famous “winged wheel" Indy Speedway logos for the rear fenders, as well as large door emblems that read “Official Pace Car, 62nd Annual Indianapolis 500 Mile Race, May 28, 1978."

Our 1978 Chevrolet Corvette Pace Car - regalia decal delete - is a terrific driver quality example of this popular C3 model. Here's an opportunity to enter the classic car market and have a wonderful forty-three-year-old collectable Corvette that you can take to car shows and drive and enjoy! Loaded like a Pace Car, this Vette has all of the options such as; air conditioning (not currently working), am/fm cassette stereo, t-tops, cruise control, power brakes, power steering, power locks, power windows, tilt wheel, leather interior, alloy wheels and much more!

If you've been thinking about buying a classic car, the time is now! Besides, how many investments can you use and enjoy as a hobby while the value continues to increase!
