Description

Lot #756.1 - Only 6,502 Pace Car Editions were produced in 1978, accounting for just under 14% of the year's total Corvette production. This phenomenally preserved Indy Pace Car Corvette was purchased new by the dealership Rex Chevrolet of Odebolt, IA. The car has been treated like a collectible since its initial August 1978 inspection. It continues to wear the original factory-issued plastic upholstery covers. Still displaying just 71 actual miles, this preservation-class 'Vette is very well documented, retaining its original dealer invoice, factory Build Sheet and original owner's manual. In October 1997, this pace car earned a Top Flight Award from the NCRS with a score of 96.8 points. And in June 2009, the car was "Certified Gold" by Bloomington Gold. This pristine Indy Pace Car example offers rarity and astounding originality.
