THE PREVIOUS OWNER, OWNED THIS BEAUTY FOR 40 YEARS.
ALWAYS KEPT COVERED INSIDE HIS GARAGE EXCEPT FOR RIDES IN THE SUMMER.
ORIGINAL WINDOW STICKER INCLUDED.
THIS CAR RUNS FANTASTIC,. STRONGER THAN I EXPECTED!    PURE STOCK ORIGINAL. FORM FITTED CARPET PROTECTORS IN THE FRONT SO EASILY REMOVABLE. I LIKE THEM AND THE ORINAL CARPET IS UNDER THEM.

From the Internet...

The 1978 Corvette Indy Pace Car continues to hold its value far better than most other Corvettes from that era.  It is not uncommon to see a low-mileage 1978 Pace Car listed for sale with a price tag of $40-50,000!  Moreover, it's not uncommon to see individuals, many of whom have probably dreamed of owning one of these beautiful machines for decades, pay that price gladly for the chance to own one of the most desirable Corvette Pace Cars in the brands 65+ year history."

THIS CAR CAN GO EITHER WAY... DRIVE IT EVERY DAY OR PUT IT AWAY FOR THE FUTURE... FABULOUS SHOW / DRIVER CORVETTE!


IF YOU DON'T KNOW ALL ABOUT THESE, FIRST TIME EVER CORVETTE PACE CARS, HERE ARE A FEW TID BITS. YOU COULD BUY THE BASE 350 ENGINE OR THE HIGHER PERFORMANCE L-82 350 V-8.   AMAZINGLY ENOUGH THE L-82'S WERE BUILT WITH HEAVY DUTY, HIGHER PERFORMANCE INTERNALS. CRANKSHAFT, PISTONS, RODS, BETTER HEADS, LARGER VALVES AND UPGRADED CAM SHAFT, AND 4 BOLT MAINS!  EASILY CAPABLE OF HANDLING 350 TO 370 HORSEPOWER IF YOU DECIDED TO PUMP IT UP.

OH, I TRIED IT ONLY ONCE, SITTING STILL IN DRIVE AND PUT THE PEDAL TO THE METAL AND TO MY SURPRISE IT BROKE THE FAT TIRES LOOSE. I WAS IMPRESSED.

IF YOU ARE WONDERING WHY SOME HAVE THE INDY 500 DECALS AND SOME DON'T, CHEVY DELIVERED ALL OF THESE WITH THE DECALS IN A BOX. THEREFORE EACH OWNER GOT TO DECIDE FOR HIMSELF.

This particular car is equipped with the Matching #'s High Performance L82 - 350 V8,  Turbo Automatic transmission, Working factory cruise control Optional Stereo CB radio, And There was an extensive list of Mandatory options required on all Pace Car Edition models that included power windows, power door locks, removable glass roof panels, rear window defogger, air conditioning, sport mirrors, a tilt-telescoping steering column, raised white-letter tires sized P255/60R, a heavy-duty battery, a Delco AM/FM stereo radio with 8-track tape or CB, power antenna, dual rear speakers, aluminum road wheels, the convenience group and special seats. Model year 1978 commemorated the 25th anniversary of the legendary Corvette brand. Chevrolet celebrated this milestone with a bold fastback styling redesign featuring a large rear window, giving both a new silhouette as well as significantly increasing the luggage space behind the Special front seats that were intended for 1979 Corvettes. Pace cars were the only Corvettes to get these seats in 1978.

THESE L-82'S WERE RECORDED DOING 15.2 SECONDS IN THE QUARTER MILE. FASTEST AMERICAN CAR IN 1978!  CHEVY DECIDED TO BUILD ENOUGH OF THESE TO GET ONLY 1 TO EACH DEALER. CORVETTE LOVERS WERE PAYING WELL OVER STICKER TO GET ONE!
MINE RUNS SURPRISINGLY STRONG. PURE STOCK, TIMING ADVANCED. WHAT A DIFFERENCE...

AND IT HAS NEVER BEEN RESTORED!  smiley  SHE'S STILL A FACTORY ASSEMBLED CAR WITH A REAL 27,000 ACTUAL MILES AND DOCUMENTED!
HERE IS A LINK FOR YOU TO SEE MANY OF THE PACE CARS THAT HAVE SOLD RECENTLY.  THERE IS A PRETTY BIG DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ONE WITH
THE BASE L48 350 AND THE MORE POWERFUL L82
I MUST SAY, THE TURBO 350 AUTOMATICS WERE SET UP AND DIALED IN BEAUTIFULLY FOR THESE L82 CARS.
