This 1978 Chevrolet Corvette is a classic with a high degree of originality everywhere from the numbers-matching V8 to the bright silver paint. So you\'re going to love showing off this ultra-low mileage T-top coupe that has seen an impressive amount of preservation and care.

It may seem nearly impossible, but it\'s true...The ultra-low mileage on the odometer is believed to be the accurate distance for this Corvette. It makes for an exceptionally preserved example from the Corvette\'s 25th anniversary year. So for the silver anniversary, the car\'s appropriate silver finish is not only the factory-correct color, but it\'s also believed to be the factory-applied finish. It has a touch of maturity while also retaining a radiant look in the sunshine to really confirm its decades of care. In fact, this is an all-around impressive survivor with good body panel alignment, tight gaps, and the T-tops that seal nicely. It all looks quite stock, right down to the optional aluminum wheels with Goodyear Eagle ST tires.

The Oyster interior has a nice clean look against the silver exterior. Everything from the carpeting to the door panels has a clean and crisp look of good care. Even the courtesy lights work. So you\'ll love driving this one with the T-tops out to show it off. It has a nice stock style, but there are also well-placed upgrades that you can really enjoy, like the tinted windows and an AM/FM/CD stereo with aux input for better driving music. And you\'ll likely want to upgrade/service that factory air conditioning for modern R134a. The C3 Corvette\'s full gauge package is an instant reminder that this is a driver\'s machine. The smooth steering wheel, tilt/telescopic column, and full gauge package make it easy to enjoy the open road. So while the mileage is so low, we bet you won\'t be able to resist adding to the odometer.

The original numbers-matching L-48 350 cubic inch V8 is still providing the power. It has a well-maintained style and a distinct bright blue on the block. This original V8 remains a solid runner, and that makes for a good cruiser with the smooth-shifting three-speed automatic transmission. And if you\'ve picked up on the theme of driving this classic, it\'s because a car like this really offers a terrific experience. It has power steering, four-wheel power disc brakes, and a fully independent sports suspension for a confident dive. There are even newer Bilstein shocks all-around.

The sale comes complete with owner\'s manual and car cover. This is a respected survivor from quite a significant model year. So if you love elegance and history, call today!
