This 1978 T-Top is a Silver Anniversary Edition, commemorating Corvette’s 25th year of production. The VIN sequence indicates it was assembled late in the production year. This Corvette is powered by the optional L82 220 hp motor and coupled with the optional 4-speed. This is a desirable combination which adds to the value of this Corvette. The 56,418 original miles is also considered low for a 27 year old car. The exterior paint is rated as Good Condition and is Silver Anniversary 2-Tone Silver. 15,282 of 46,776 Corvettes had the Silver Anniversary paint option. The interior is Mahogany Cloth rated as Good Condition. Only 763 Mahogany Cloth interiors were selected making this a rare color combination. The AM/FM/CB was another rare option that appears on only 15% of the Corvettes built in 1978. We place a value of $14,500 on this 1978 Silver Anniversary Corvette. In addition, our pricing data shows a 17% appreciation factor in average price during the past year.
