Offered for sale is a 1978 25th anniversary model with a four speed transmission and L82 engine that has been modified, and the emissions equipment removed. I purchased the car in June of 2010 and am the 3rd owner. The previous owner had it for 20 some years. The mileage on the car registered 29,362 when I bought it. It now has 33,723 miles on it. Mechanically the car is sound. No accidents and the paint and finish are above average. The grey paint on the lower part of car has been repainted. Virtually no scratches on the overall paint. This car responds very well and is a fun car to drive. It has a very good pull on acceleration and sounds great. The air conditioning does not work. It wasn't important to me to get it fixed.

This is the background of what I have done to the car over the last nine years:

New tires

New radiator

New brake calipers

New radio antenna

New seat and foam to match the original design and color

New alternator

New starter

New headers

New straight through exhaust pipes

New mufflers

New battery

New fuel pump

Engine work:

New aluminum heads - 190cc runner 64cc

New push rods

New aluminum valve covers

New aluminum roller rockers 1.6 ratio

New single plane manifold

New distributor

New plug wires

New plugs

Reworked Rochester carburetor with increased secondary jets

I'm selling this car because I have two corvettes. I'm going to sell this one even though I have a real attachment to it.

The original heads, rocker arms, push rods, intake manifold, and valve covers are available.
