Chevy's Corvette is still an awesome sports car, right from when it was first introduced in 1953. Seventy years down the line, Chevrolet has firmly established the Corvette as an "Americas Sports Car," and it became something that you could see everywhere; while still overwhelming, it's not a rare thing anymore. With countless models, revisions, and variations, the Corvette is a car that is easy to miss. To stand out in a sea of Corvettes, your best bet is this frame-off restored 1978 Chevrolet Corvette Silver Anniversary, with a total mileage of 92,000 on the odometer.
This 1978 Chevrolet Corvette Silver Anniversary is painted in full Silver Metallic. The front features the Corvette's typical sloping hood with the grille acting as an air dam as well on the bottom and painted in black. The hood is also host to the Silver Anniversary special badging which is also on the fuel door. The seller reports that the frame-off restoration included new headlights. The sides feature the regular crossed flags emblem along with fender vents. The side mirrors are also painted in the body color. The rear is host to a fixed glass fastback-style rear window which increases visibility as well as luggage space. Apart from the quad taillights with the Corvette lettering nestled between them, the rear is devoid of any other ornamentation and even lacks a typical rear bumper. The car sits on a set of unpainted vintage wheels with the crossed flags emblem on the center caps. The interior features an all-black finish with contrast white stitching and a smattering of chrome trimmings. The stock radio has been replaced with an aftermarket Alpine head unit with Bluetooth functionality below the aircraft-style gauges.
