1978 was the Corvette's 25th Anniversary, and all 78's featured Silver Anniversary nose and fuel door emblems. A new fastback rear window was the most dramatic and noticeable styling change, giving the ten-year-old C3 Corvette body style a fresh lease on life. The fixed-glass fastback benefited both aerodynamics and increased the usable luggage space behind the seats while improving rearward visibility.
6,502 Indy-500 Pace car replica editions were produced featuring Black/silver two-tone paint, front and rear spoilers, mirror-tint roof panels and contoured sport seats. Reviewers praised the car's classic strengths including its impressive straight-line numbers, especially an L48/automatic's 7.8 second 0-60 time and top speed of 123 mph and noted its more refined, less rattling ride.
This black beauty has just over 13,000 actual miles, shown on the Arizona Box A title. The Vette has been well kept as the paint and stickers are in great condition and the silver interior isn't faded or torn. The mirrored glass panels fit great and don't rattle. Powered by the MATCHING NUMBERS, L48 350ci and 3 speed automatic. You'll be hard pressed to find a nicer Silver Anniversary Pace Car. Come by today and drive this one home!or
