Description for Chevrolet Corvette 1978

1978 Corvette Indianapolis 500 Official Pace Car. 5.7L 350, auto trans. Has the very desireable upgraded L82 engine. Engine is numbers matching to the car. Rebuilt trans, all new brake system including master cyl, all 4 calipers, all 4 rotors, pads, brake hoses, etc. All new power steering hoses, and steering cyl. Has original numbers matching Quadrajet carburetor that was just rebuilt. Body appears to have some of it's original paint, but there have been touch ups. It has the typical lacquer checking that you see on cars of the era. I don't see any evidence of any collision damage, or fiberglass repairs anywhere. Brand new Cooper Cobra tires all the way around. New seat upholstery, and new door panels. Could use a new dash pad. Power windows and locks work. All original smog equipment is still intact, including original catalytic converter. Since photos were taken, Car has a recent tune up, with correct plug wires, cap and rotor, and a correct vacuum hose set with all the NCRS approved stripes. The car runs and drives very nicely. Original mirrored T-tops, and also included is a one piece targa top. All glass is in nice shape. The photos are a pretty accurate description of the car. It's not perfect. It's a very nice driver, with aging paint, that still shines nicely, and gets a ton of attention.
The car is a real head turner. Just needs some minor details mentioned above. I'd probably replace the dash pad, and carpet, and drive the car as is. There is patina and some of the paint is original. L82 engine is what separates this from run of the mill 78 Corvettes.
