Indy500 Limited Edition Corvette Pace Car
This is a Chevrolet Corvette Limited Edition Pace Car in original condition. It made its last appearance California, West-Coast USA!
In 1978, Chevrolet C3 celebrated the 25th anniversary of the Corvette by pacing the Indianapolis 500 and releasing a handful of special-edition pace car replicas to the public. Just 6,502 of these very special Black and Silver Corvette models were ever produced, each with a unique VIN sequence, a significant change from previous special-edition Corvettes.
Besides the special two-tone paint, each Corvette Pace Car featured unique front and rear spoilers, Indy graphics, polished aluminum Red-stripe wheels, mirror-tint roof panels and contoured sport seats finished in silver leather. These limited-edition cars featured the L48 V8 engine and a host of premium features.
Also note that the 25th anniversary of Corvette was marked with one of the most extensively redesigned Corvettes since the 1968 model. The new “fastback” rear end styling featured a large rear window, reminiscent of the lines of the mid-'60s.
