Our Corvette is a rare special edition 1978 Corvette Indy Pace Car, being one of the original limited edition cars produced in 1978.
1978 was the 25th anniversary year of the first Chevrolet Corvette which was built in 1953 and a production Corvette was used as the official pace car that lead the cars round the track at the Memorial Day race at Indianapolis Speedway. Chevrolet produced a special edition Corvette Indy Pace Car to commemorate this event with one Corvette produced per dealership and ours is one of these.
The C3 (3rd generation Corvette) body had gone through a number of changes with chrome bumpers disappearing in 1974 and, in my opinion, 1978 saw the introduction of the best looking version of the Coupe. The small rear window was replaced with a large curved fastback window which improved both rear vision and luggage space.
