Corvette Description

Gateway Classic Cars of Houston is happy to offer this “25th Anniversary” 1978 Chevrolet Corvette L82 4-speed from our Houston showroom. The Silver Anniversary Corvettes were 25 years in the making, and to celebrate the first quarter century of Corvettes, a completely re-designed body was rolled out with new “fastback” styling. Every Corvette this year came with special 25th anniversary badging and the special “Anniversary Edition” included a unique two-tone paint job in Charcoal Silver and Silver Metallic, easily identifying them as an Anniversary Editions. Those in 1978 who were unable to get their hands on a Pace Car edition could still purchase one of these Silver Anniversary Edition Corvettes, as this option (specifically, B2Z 25th Anniversary Paint) was not limited in production like the Pace Car editions were. Selecting this option package required checking the box for the aluminum wheels and dual sport mirrors, and buyers received a Corvette finished in silver metallic above and charcoal silver below, with pin stripes to accentuate the fenders, wheel arches, fender vents and hood. The 25th Anniversary Corvette could be ordered with a wide array of options, meaning that no two are likely to be identical. The 1978 Corvette performance has been improved with a dual snorkel air cleaner and new low-restriction exhaust system and mufflers on the available “L82” optioned 350 C.I.D. V8 powerplant. This engine also features a higher lift camshaft, special cylinder heads with larger valving, impact-extruded pistons and a forged crankshaft with 4-bolt main bearing caps, plus finned aluminum rocker arm covers to disperse heat more efficiently. The transverse rear leaf spring in the independent rear suspension was widened to reduce stress and the new Four-Speed manual transmission was standard. The close-ratio, 4-Speed manual gearbox added to the thrills with gearing designed for the numerous up-and-down shifts associated with Corvette driving demands and was fully synchronized with a 2.43-to-1 first gear ratio. The 25th Anniversary Edition Corvettes have always been sought after as highly collectible classics and have really come into their own in recent years & this example is no exception. Additional options include alloy wheels, leather interior, t/tops, power steering, power brakes, power windows, power locks, AM/FM stereo and radial tires.
