Numbers matching 1978 Corvette in excellent condition with only 47,735 original miles. This Corvette looks stunning, runs great, and is an excellent driver. The car is totally solid with excellent lines and no rust issues. It is finished in the rare, highly desirable, and beautiful color combination of Corvette Frost Blue (26) over Dark Blue Leather (292). This is the correct and original color scheme as verified by the codes on the trim tag pictured in this ad. Only 1,960 Corvettes were made in Frost Blue for 1978.
I have personally driven this car about 20 miles. During that time that car was completely reliable, has no issues, and was a true pleasure to drive.
Besides the correct paint and trim codes this Corvette is "Numbers Matching" meaning the engine and the transmission are the original units that were installed new in the car in the factory in St. Louis. Even very detailed parts like the intake, distributor, and even all of the windows are all correct and original. The last six digits of the VIN, 407317, are stamped on the engine pad, which is pictured in this ad, and the engine is original to the car. The transmission is also original with the last six digits of the VIN stamped on the main case and pictured.
This Corvette is ready to be used and enjoyed. We have this car priced to sell and are offering an excellent opportunity to own a very desirable Corvette at an unbeatable value. One could easily buy this car now and sell it for more than the purchase price in years to come as the market on C3 Corvettes is very hot right now and on the rise, especially for a low mileage example like this car. The original owners manual is included with the car.
The low original mileage is verified not only by the condition of the car, but also the clear Ohio title, pictured in this ad, shows the mileage as "Actual." Please peruse all of the photos, video, list of numbers, and other information to get a true sense of how clean and nice this Corvette really is.
