Vehicle Description


Cincy Classic Cars is proud to offer this 1978 Silver Anniversary Numbers Matching Corvette which is in beautiful overall condition and priced to sell. This Corvette is a true Factory ordered Silver Anniversary Corvette as verified by pictured trim tag below. This Corvette features a nice repaint in the very sought after Silver Anniversary paint scheme, an original interior which is in good condition, and a very nice running 350 engine which is original to the car, see engine block vin stamp below. This Corvette is very solid with great lines and gaps and shows no signs of visible rust anywhere around the car. This Corvette is finished in the beautiful and desirable color combinations of Silver Anniversary paint(code 13/07) over Oyster leather (code 122) interior. This is the factory color scheme as verified by the trim tag pictured below.


The Silver Anniversary exterior is in very nice condition. This Corvette was treated to a professional paint job in the factory Silver Anniversary color which shows well. The paint is in very good condition with a nice gloss and shine and is smooth to the touch. Both bumpers are in great shape with no flaking or fading paint. There may be some minor imperfections that are not noticeable in the photos, but nothing was intentionally excluded from the photos. The tires are newer and have full tread left on them and are sized 255/60/15 and the wheels are OEM originals and in nice shape with no curb rash and shine nicely. The t tops come on and off nicely and fit snug and do not rattle while driving. All glass is “LOF” original glass. The headlights go up and down quickly and work properly which is a big deal on these cars. The power antenna motor works properly as seen in the video below.


The Oyster leather interior of this Corvette is in good overall original condition. The seat covers are original and in good overall shape but they do have some minor wear in the seat bottoms which is common for 39 year old leather seat covers. The entire carpet front and rear has just been replaced and is in new perfect condition and looks excellent in the car. The original dash is in good condition and the dash bezel is in good condition as well. The stereo has been upgraded to a modern Alpine CD player and works properly and sounds great. Again, the power antenna works properly in the car. The original door panels are in good condition and both door pulls are solid and in tact. All interior and exterior lights and gauges work as they should outside of the clock. The horn, stereo, wipers, power windows, and fan blower also work. The wiper switch is a little finicky, wipers work but the switch is a little fussy. This car has not been smoked in; there is no aroma what so ever.


This Corvette is in great mechanical condition and we have driven it numerous times and it always performs very well and is a true joy to drive. Very importantly the 350 engine is original to the car. In the video one can observe this car running and driving with no excessive rattles or noises, and the car handles and performs well. The previous owner of this Corvette kept meticulous care of the car and regular maintenance was performed. This Corvette is an exceptional driver that feels great on the road and at highway speeds. There is no smoke when starting or driving the car. It starts right away every time, idles well, and runs great. The brakes do not pull and stop as they should. Also, the engine is clean and nicely detailed as one can see from the photos. The engine is very correct and looks factory. This is a factory AC car and all the original AC components seem to be on the car but appears to need charged to blow cold.
