The fastback roofline was new for '78. It not only improved aerodynamics but increased cargo capacity, and in the process, these 78 Corvette’s launched a new era for the third-generation coupes. The two-tone silver on the Corvette is still one of the most handsome combinations to come out of the 1970s. It goes far beyond just coordinating two handsome colors. It adds delicate pinstriping in all the right places, including extra ones to highlight the C3's curvy styling along the power bulge in the hood and the Coke bottle fenders. It looks like a custom paintjob, which is why it has remained one of the most sophisticated themes ever applied by General Motors. This even has nice details, like the correct 25th anniversary badging and optional polished aluminum wheels. So, it's a highly correct survivor-style presentation.
The Black leather interior has a nice clean look against the silver exterior. This bright interior trim is repeated on the door panels, center console, carpets, and even the steering wheel is wrapped in the same white leather. You have nice features, like a AM/FM stereo, anti-theft system, power locks, and a tilt/telescoping steering wheel. Plus, the T-tops love to put the wind in your hair, and even has air conditioning to keep you cool. If this sounds like an awesome driver, then we know you'll love the C3's full gauge package.
This Vette is fun to drive - as you develop a sold hit of power low in the rev range that gets your heart racing and the dual exhaust growling. Add in power steering, the fully independent suspension, and four-wheel power disc brakes, and you will understand that this Corvette is for drivers. The way this looks tells that they wanted to preserve something special, and the way these fires up, and drive affirms its careful life.
