Description

In 1978, Chevrolet celebrated the 25th anniversary of the Corvette by pacing the Indianapolis 500 and releasing a handful of special-edition pace car replicas to the public. Just 6,502 of these very special Black and Silver Corvette models were ever produced, each with a unique VIN sequence, a significant change from previous special-edition Corvettes. Following a front-page article in the Wall Street Journal, prices for these limited-edition Corvettes went through the roof as they were quickly... snapped up by collectors. Besides the special two-tone paint, each Corvette Pace Car featured unique front and rear spoilers, polished aluminum Red-stripe wheels, mirror-tint roof panels and contoured sport seats finished in silver leather. An Indianapolis 500 decal kit was also included. The 25th anniversary of Corvette was marked with one of the most extensively redesigned Corvettes since the 1968 model. The new “fastback” rear end styling featured a large rear window, reminiscent of the lines of the mid-'60s. This particular example is in exceptional condition and has only 71,022 miles. For power, the car still has its original numbers matching L-82 350 V8 Engine and it runs very strong. The car also has Air Conditioning, a CB Radio, Cruise Control, Power Steering, Power Disc Brakes, Power Windows and its Original Window Sticker. Another interesting note is that this is the second to last Pace Car Corvette ever built being #6501 of 6,502 built. For more information or to make an offer, give Dan a call at 863-370-6712.
