For those drawn to the Stingray body style and who appreciate the refinement and simplicity in the engine compartment layout of the late Stingrays, one to consider is the 1978 model. 1978 was the Corvette's twenty fifth anniversary, and all 78's feature silver anniversary nose and fuel door emblems. A new fastback rear window was the most dramatic and noticeable styling change, giving the ten-year-old C3 Corvette body style a fresh lease on life. The fixed-glass fastback benefited both aerodynamics and increased the usable luggage space behind the seats while improving rearward visibility in the bargain.
The 1978 Corvette is best described as a refined touring sports car offering classic Corvette styling, reliability and many creature comfort options.
To enjoy open air driving, one simply takes off the T-Top roof panels and stores them in the rear storage area. Whether being driven locally or driven cross country, the 1978 Corvette was built for enjoyment. This is a sports car that requires nothing more then annual routine maintenance to be able to provide many years of carefree pleasurable driving.
