1237 Central Park Drive, OFallon , IL 62269 View Map


Up for sale in the Houston showroom is one iconic car, the 1978 Chevrolet Corvette Silver Anniversary. 1978 was the 25th anniversary of Corvette. To celebrate, a completely remodeled body was rolled out with a new fastback style. The new wrap-around rear window provided much more space behind the seats but it is not a hatchback car. The special anniversary edition included a unique Charcoal Silver/Silver Metallic two-tone paint job for an extra $399 tacked onto the sticker price. Now this is a very special and rare Corvette for the Silver Anniversary, this is a one owner, documented true survivor that has spent its life in one heated garage in Texas. This car has never had a repaint nor touch up. Routine maintence, a once a month work out and very good owner has kept this Corvette for sale in amazing shape. Just like the rest of the car the suspension and braking system remains intact with the factory components like the upper and lower A-arms, coil springs, tubular hydraulic shock absorbers and antiroll bar. The rear is the same way. The lateral leaf springs, struts, U-joint half shafts, trailing arms and tubular hydraulic shock absorbers have not been replaced. The 11.75" 4 wheel power disk brakes still stop this thing on a dime like they should. Ladies and gentlemen, when we state this one owner Corvette for sale has never been touched, we mean it has never been touched! The factory 185hp 350 C.I.D V8 just had its oil changed before being brought to us and it runs like its brand new. The turbo 350 transmission shifts amazing smooth, actually you don't feel it shift at all. Its that's nice. The 3.08 rear gear ratio keeps the RPM's down along with fuel mileage if you want to take it for a cruise. This is one of finest and examples of the well kept Silver Anniversary Corvette. Dont miss out on a once in life time deal on a amazing peice of Americana. Options on this beautiful 1978 Chevrolet Corvette Silver Anniversary include: A/c, am/fm, cb radio, t-tops-power brakes, power steering, power windows, tilt wheel, leather seats, power antenna and aluminum alloy wheels wrapped in factory raised white letter factory SBR tires.
