GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this 1978 Chevrolet Corvette L48 Coupe for consideration. 1978 was the 25th anniversary of Corvette and to celebrate, Chevrolet introduced a completely re-designed body with new "fastback" styling. The new wrap-around rear window provided much more space behind the seats. All '78 Corvettes came with special 25th anniversary badging and it was the pace car for the 62nd Indy 500 on May 28, 1978.

There were 46,776 Corvettes manufactured in 1978 and decoding the VIN reveals:
• 1 = Chevrolet
• Z = Corvette
• 87 = Coupe
• L = L48 350ci 175hp V8
• 8 = 1978
• S = St. Louis assembly
• 418651 = 18,651st out of 46,776 in production sequence

The current owner states that this Vette was originally a Coca-Cola raffle give-a-way car and hence the unique Coca-Cola colored interior and exterior color. It features power steering, power brakes, power windows, A/C, and heat. Under the hood is the original numbers-matching L48 mated to a 3-speed automatic with less than 35,000 original miles! The interior and exterior are both in great condition and the car runs and drives wonderfully. Don't miss out on this rare opportunity to own a one-off Corvette! Call for further details.
