So that's why it's so fantastic to find one that truly has been treated that way. After all, this example is a full survivor with just 145 miles on it (yes, really!)

This was the silver anniversary of the Corvette, and a big reason the Pace Car was an instant classic was because they really showed off the new redesigned style the best. Chevy made a very special two-tone that had such a well-coordinated style that this looks like a custom car. There's even a red pinstripe that highlights all the coupe's best features, like the sharply pointed nose and tall fender line. Even the alloy wheels have the redline in them. And this was truly an expensive undertaking, and that's why the Pace Car edition more than doubled the base price! This was such a unique appearance for the Corvette that it's terrific to see the original paint in such as-delivered condition. This hasn't been re-sprayed or over-buffed, and so it truly represents how the factory made these cars in '78. And that means this is ready for some serious attention from Corvette survivor shows. It's truly original, right down to the Goodyear tires!

The nearly impossible low mileage means everything about this car is fresh, right down to the special silver leather seats. The experience inside is like a true time capsule with plush carpeting, smooth door panels, and a complete and clean dash. And because these were so expensive when new, this special Corvette is also a loaded machine. That means glass T-tops, power windows, electric rear defogger, power locks, provisions for air conditioning, sport mirrors, and a tilt/telescope steering wheel. This one even still has its original AM/FM/8-track stereo. You can verify all these features on the original window sticker that comes with the sale.

Lift the hood, and the time capsule appearance continues. The 350 cubic-inch L-48 motor is the verified numbers-matching block. And as you may imagine with so few miles, even the factory decals are bright with little wear or fade. This is mated to the correct TH350 three-speed automatic transmission that's also looking quite fresh. In fact, the whole undercarriage barely looks like this car ever hit the road. These C3s have desirable driving features like a fully independent suspension, power steering, and four-wheel disc brakes. So if you ever do decide to add to the nearly impossibly low odometer, this Corvette will happily enjoy the open road.

Something this special needs to have all the right paperwork. So not only does the window sticker come with the sale, but you also get the owner's manual, title documentation, and factory buildsheet. This is an amazing piece of history that's ready to be someone's ultimate collectable. So do you want to be jealous or make everyone else jealous? The difference happens when you call today!

We recognize the need for complete transparency when buying/selling vehicles on eBay. That said, we did not build, modify, or have the luxury of personal ownership that would give us the advantage of knowing all unknown aspects of each vehicle. Transparency is king and we're happy to try and answer ALL questions our customers might have prior to purchasing. Additionally, we welcome and encourage independent inspections (see Inspection statement below).

FEES: A documentation fee of $199 will be added to the purchase price at the time of sale. Sale price does not include any Title, License, Registration, State or Local Taxes or Processing Fees. We recommend you familiarize yourself with your individual state's taxes, transfer, or additional fees.

AVAILABILITY: Please inquire prior to purchase to assure any advertised vehicle is not already sold. We advertise across multiple platforms where a vehicle can sell in a moment's notice. Vehicles may be sold prior to eBay listing end, and we reserve the right to end listings early or to cancel bids/offers solely at our discretion and shall not be held liable for any such cancellation.

CONTACT: Note that you may hear from us after to the sale, but if you are a winning bidder, click a Buy-It-Now, or we accept your eBay Offer, it is your responsibility to contact us within 24 hours.

INSPECTION: VERY IMPORTANT. If a buyer chooses to buy sight unseen (many of our buyers choose this option) the buyer accepts the vehicle AS-IS and understands we cannot address concerns post sale. For this reason, it's important all concerns are addressed prior to purchase. We make every effort to present accurate and reliable information, but use of this information is voluntary, and should only be deemed reliable after an independent review of its accuracy, completeness, and timeliness. It is the sole responsibility of the customer/buyer to verify the existence of options, accessories and the vehicle condition before time of sale.

PAYMENT: We require a non-refundable $500 deposit within 48 hours of winning or commitment to purchase. Full payment is required within 7 days of offer acceptance unless other arrangements are agreed to in writing. If deposit and/or full payment are not provided within said timeframe, all vehicles will be relisted and transaction will be considered void. For balance of payment we will accept bank wire transfer (preferred), cashier's check, or personal check (vehicle shipment will be delayed until check clears).We also offer vehicle financing, please inquire for details prior to making bids/offers.

SHIPPING: We have access to a network of private and commercial carriers. Most of them can deliver the vehicle to your driveway and upon your schedule. We assume no responsibility for damages or delays incurred once a vehicle is in a shipper's custody. Buyers are welcomed to trailer vehicles home and we are happy to have everything ready to see you off with your new vehicle.

DRIVE IT HOME: If you plan to buy and drive home, please keep some things in mind. Anything is possible when it comes to a vehicle, especially a classic or antique one. We recommend transporting all vehicles to your home first, then driving it locally. Get to know the vehicle and its tendencies before embarking on a long-distance trip. If you choose to drive your new vehicle home, buyer accepts all responsibility as we are unable to control what may take place once it leaves our facility.

DOCUMENTS & VEHICLE TITLE: All purchase documents are sent immediately upon purchase. To avoid delays, we recommend returning any required documents within 24 hours of receipt. Please allow up to 30 days for vehicle titles. Usually titles are available sooner, we ask for the extra time in the event there are unforeseen circumstances.

VIN VERIFICATION: We photograph the primary VIN location of every vehicle and make sure that VIN exactly matches the vehicle's current title. Buyer agrees to hold seller harmless from any disputes arising from other hidden or secondary VINs present on the vehicle as seller only verifies the primary VIN location. If needed, it is the buyer's sole responsibility to verify secondary VIN locations their specific state may inspect, prior to purchase.

MILEAGES: Occasionally our vehicles may be driven or simply moved around our facilities. Slight differences may occur so we recommend you confirm actual and current miles prior to purchase.

CONDITION: We cover the obvious and do our best to describe our vehicles in detail. Even so, please have a transparent conversation with us before purchasing. Do be aware that all pre-owned vehicles, regardless of age, mileage, or manufacturer are subject to cosmetic wear and mechanical failure. Finally, be advised that although our sales associates are here to assist you with your purchase, they are not trained or certified vehicle inspectors.

AS-IS: All vehicles are sold AS IS and with no warranties expressed or implied. If you choose to waive inspection, do plan to have a detailed and transparent conversation with us regarding the vehicle's condition. Ask the hard questions up front. Please just call us, we are here to help and welcome all your questions!

We cannot be responsible for any errors, omissions, or inaccuracies contained in information provided by the consignor/seller of the vehicle.
