In 1978, Chevrolet celebrated the 25th anniversary of the Corvette by pacing the Indianapolis 500 and releasing a handful of special edition pace car replicas to the public.
ONLY 6502 of these very special Black and Silver Corvette models were ever produced, and with a unique VIN sequence, a significant change from previous special edition Corvettes.
Following a front page article in the Wall Street Journal, prices for these limited edition Corvettes went through the roof as they were quickly snatched up by collectors.
Besides the special two toned paint, each Pace Car featured unique front and rear spoilers, polished aluminum red striped wheels, mirror tint roof panels and contoured sport seats finished in silver leather. An Indianapolis 500 decal kit was also included.
The 25th Anniversary of Corvette was marked with one of the most extensively redesigned Corvettes since the 1968 model.
The new fastback rear end styling featured a large rear window, reminiscent of the lines of the mid 60's.
The interior of the 1978 Pace Car sported a special clam shell seat. Number 06305, this particular Pace Car edition includes the sought after L82 350 Ci engine with an automatic transmission. The L82 was designed as a high performance engine, featuring a 9:1 compression ratio that generated 220 horsepower. This particular engine also had larger heads and valves, 4 bolt mains, forged steel crank, different pistons and aluminum intake. Although the cam is stronger in the L82, it is physically identical to the L48, Chevrolet's first version of a base 350 V8 engine.
This Corvette is a rare find and a collector's dream!! Own a piece of Chevy history!
