Celebrating its 25th anniversary, the 1978 Corvette featured an all-new fastback design, special 25th anniversary badging, and a special two-tone color scheme as an option.
Despite having a 25th anniversary edition, one of the rarest and most sought after Corvette of the year was the 1978 Chevrolet Corvette Pace Car Coupe.
Chevrolet made about 6,500 pace cars in all that year which amounted to one example per dealer. In addition, only about 500 of those had the L-82 engine option backed by a 4-speed manual transmission. Low production numbers and low mileage is what makes this 1978 Chevrolet Corvette Pace Car being offered at Carlisle Auctions 2021 Spring Auction so special. It is worth noting that while this car does appear to be in decent condition, it does have a rebuilt title as a result of a minor accident years ago.
