1978 was the Corvette's twenty fifth 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 in the bargain. A shade was installed that could be pulled forward to cover the rear compartment to protect cargo and carpet against the unrelenting sun. The tachometer and speedometer were redesigned to match the new “aircraft styled” center console and gauge cluster first seen the previous year.

GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this 1978 L-82 Corvette for your consideration. The factory L-82 engine has been removed and a healthy 454 is in its place. According to the owner, the engine has been recently rebuilt and the clutch is new. It has the Borg-Warner 4 speed manual super T-10 transmission. The car was professionally ground up restored in 2008. The rear leaf spring has been upgraded to a mono leaf fiberglass spring. The brakes are new, along with new tires, new seats, new door panels, new carpet, new power antenna, new headers and exhaust, 2 sets of t top. Other highlights include air conditioning, power brakes, power steering, power windows, AM/FM radio, 15 inch factory wheels with white letter tires, 4 barrel carburetor, aluminum intake, Mallory distributor and ignition.
