LMC is very proud to offer for sale this 1978 Chevrolet Corvette Pace Car Edition

 The C3 generation was the longest running production run of any Corvette and throughout the years it went through many changes which inspired many different models. For 1978, Chevrolet decided to build a limited-edition Pace Car edition that was a replica of the pace car used at the Indianapolis 500. They built 6,502 cars to commemorate the first Corvette pace car of the storied Brickyard event. The cars featured special paint and unique decals, replicating the Pace Car’s color scheme, as well as the 220-hp L82 V-8 and full leather interior as standard equipment. The special-edition car came with front and rear spoilers, mirror-tint roof panels and contoured sport seats. Also new for the 1978 model year was the fixed-glass fastback. The redesigned rear window was a fresh addition to a 10-year-old body style, providing extra cargo capacity and aiding in aerodynamics. The interior features a tilt and telescopic steering wheel, air conditioning, power windows and locks, cruise control, rear-window defrost and glass T-tops. The dashboard was restyled to match the previous year’s new aircraft-style center console and gauge cluster.

 The Pace Car offered here was bought new from Devenport Chevrolet of Wolfe City, Texas, on 19 May 1978. It was trucked to the new owner’s home and immediately put into their private collection where it has resided since. It has only 8 miles on the odometer since new, making it one of the lowest-mileage Pace Car Replicas known. It still retains its matching-numbers 350 CI engine and matching numbers automatic transmission with console-mounted shifter. Overall the car is, as would be expected, well preserved, in excellent condition and still smells new inside. The car is accompanied by the original purchase and delivery paperwork, as well as the original window sticker which has never been removed.

 It has been kept in climate-controlled storage since new and has been driven only 8 actual miles. The window sticker and EPA sticker are still affixed to the window and the car comes with the original build sheet and the original owner’s manual. This delivery mileage L82 Pace Car is a well-preserved time capsule and probably one of the lowest mileage example’s available on the market today.
