1978 Chevrolet Corvette

Gateway Classic Cars of Scottsdale is excited to present this beautiful 1978 Chevrolet Corvette 25th Anniversary Edition, marketed on consignment at our showroom in Phoenix, Arizona. The 1978 model was the most redesigned Corvette in ten years and was also honored to be the official Pace car for the Indianapolis 500. The pace cars had their own vehicle identification number to eliminate cloning. The body lines of the C3 Corvette are accented in this case by the classic two-tone Silver on Gray color option. This Vette is easy on the eyes and the car has been restored to a high quality (at great expense, might we add!). Everything from bumpers to seals, lights and decals were replaced on the exterior to bring the factory look back. The drivetrain is the optional L82 with just 2000 miles since a top end rebuild on the motor. The engine was rated at 185hp when sold new and is mated to a close ratio 4 speed transmission feeding a posi-traction differential. You guessed it- the transmission and rear end were both also rebuilt. Aluminum wheels with B.F. Goodrich radial raised white letter tires hide disc brakes up front and a total suspension overhaul has this 1978 Corvette handling like a champ. Included in the interior options were air conditioning, power windows/locks, tilt/telescopic steering wheel and removeable T-Tops. The car currently has an aftermarket radio that has multi-function capabilities. The upholstery of this Corvette is truly noteworthy from the newly redone bucket seats covered in Oyster leather to the wood grain console and gauge cluster cover with stock instrumentation. As you'd expect with a vehicle of this caliber, there is documentation that will go with the sale including a breakdown of all work completed and receipts to back it up. Also included are some original advertising documents such as the dealer sales sheet and warranty brochure. Sure, there are a few 25th Anniversary Corvettes out there but we challenge you to find one that has been upgraded and cared for like this one. Even after a quarter century of production, the Corvette name still held its own in the American market and of course it has continued to do so. What are you waiting for?! Give us a call today by dialing (623) 900-4884 and we'll help you get one step closer to C3 Corvette ownership. We are always happy to communicate via email too- is the address to write to.
