The 1978 Corvette production year was interesting with more than 50% of the production representing two special models, the Silver Anniversary and the Pace Car. The remainder of the production line was termed the “standard model,” this is the model submitted. Based on the VIN #1Z87L8S4123XX, it was built early in the 1978 production year. It is powered by the standard 350, L-48 motor that is coupled with an automatic transmission. The motor is original and makes this a matching numbers Corvette.
This Corvette is unique with only 20,238 original miles. In addition, it is equipped with most of the options that were available during the 1978 model year. Included are power windows and door locks, cruise control, rear window defogger, air conditioning, sport mirror, tilt-telescopic steering column, AM/FM radio and aluminum wheels. This Corvette is Dark Blue in color and the original paint is termed in good condition. The interior has Dark Blue Leather seats which along with the door panels and carpeting are in excellent condition. Mr. Steven’s Corvette has excellent “curb appeal” with its dark blue paint and contrasting optional aluminum wheels.
Documentation plays an important role in determining the originality and value of a Corvette. In possession is previous owner history, service records and the original warranty card and owner’s manual. We place a value of $15,000 on this low-mile 1978 Corvette. In addition, the one year average price appreciation factor is +8%. This value is substantiated by recent sales at major Corvette auctions in the US, including Bloomington Gold and Corvettes at Carlisle 2005 events.
