1978 Chevrolet Corvette
This 1978 Silver Anniversary Corvette features Oyster Leather interior, Factory Aluminum Wheels, T-Tops, and Original window sticker (still on window) and bill of sale. Overall, this can either be a good driver or the beginning of a great show car, considering the miles, documentation and originality of the car. Body/Paint Overall, the paint is an eight out of 10. It was taken down to bare fiberglass and re-gelled in 1997, with only 1,074 driven miles on it since then. NOS tape stripes were used in the repaint. Paint looks fresh and near perfect at 10 feet. A trained eye will notice some imperfections. Two places are most noticeable. First, the paint has begun to flake off of the front bumper cover, as seen in the picture of lower front passenger side. The second place is a crack in the gel coat in the driver's rear fender where the rear bumper cover meets the rear fender. Over than that, the paint is in remarkably good condition. Interior Interior is original and un-restored. D ash, console and door panels are free from any crack, showing less than normal wear for a car of this age. Carpets are in good condition with no rips, wear, or snags, just dirty. Nothing a good cleaning wouldn't solve. The Oyster P earl leather is in likewise very good condition. No cracking or fading associated with drying or lack of care. Overall is it in very good condition, in need of a good professional detailing. If you are going to drive the car, it needs nothing. If you are going to restore the car, this is an excellent candidate to start with. Engine/Mechanical This car has undergone a very extensive mechanical restoration. Anything not working, worn or questionable has been replaced 1,000 miles ago. This includes headlight vacuum system, A/C heater switch controls, starter, flywheel, brakes, calipers, brake lines, rotors, master cylinder, silicon brake fluid, exhaust system, rebuilt front suspension, etc. The usual mechanical gremlins associated with this vintage have been addressed. A/C blows cold. Anything questionable has been replaced. Engine bay is surprisingly original, down to the factory carb. and intake. It is obviously un-restored. Everything works! Whether you are looking for a very attractive driver or show car restoration candidate, this is the one. D rive it home.
