1978 marked the 25th anniversary of Chevrolet’s legendary Corvette, and this milestone did not go unnoticed by General Motors.  It commemorated this event with a special Silver Anniversary Corvette that was finished in a unique Charcoal Silver/Silver metallic paint scheme with coordinating pinstripes.  Dual sport mirrors, aluminum wheels, and special anniversary badging completed a look that proved popular with consumers.

This beautiful Silver Anniversary Corvette features the L-48 350 CID V-8 and a three speed automatic transmission and shows approximately 49,000 miles.  Making this car quite unique is its Mahogany vinyl interior, of which only 2,443 1978 Corvettes were fitted (5% of total production).  Other options included on this car include the following:

  • Power windows
  • Power door locks
  • T-tops
  • Rear window defogger
  • Air conditioning
  • Sport mirrors
  • Cruise control
  • Tilt/telescopic steering wheel
  • Aluminum wheels

This car’s air conditioning blows ice cold, and all options work as they should, with the exception of the clock and cruise control.  One other item of note is that the clear Ohio title states the mileage as non-actual, but the mileage as stated is believed to be correct.

This Corvette also benefits from several more recent mechanical updates, including the following:

  • New cam and lifters
  • New water pump
  • New brakes and calipers
  • New fiberglass leaf springs
  • New heater core
  • New Flowmaster dual exhaust system
