1978 Mahogany Metallic T-Top Corvette

THE VETTE NET, Nationwide Corvette Brokerage Network, proud Lifetime Business Member of the National Corvette Museum is pleased to offer a fine example of a classy 1978 Vette in excellent condition, great history, lots of new parts, also NCRS-ed in January 2008 to a Second Flight award.

Corvette started its life in Canada as a Canadian delivery model. The only difference is the odometer being in Kilometers. In 1993 the original owner moved to FL and car was titled in the US. Car was sold via THE VETTE NET in 2005 to the second owner with 47K miles (76000 Km). Check out the last six pics from the gallery for 2005 pictures. Second owner from Orlando FL installed new brake rotors, cruise control, speedomeeter cable, etc to the tune of $2006.50.

The third owner in Tampa FL continued to enjoy the car and realizing it was very original and by only adding new wheels and centercaps, he was able to get a very prestigious award, NCRS Second Flight in January 2008 scoring 88.1% .

Well, Second Flight was not enough. Lots of upgrades were done in order to increase the points and progress to the Top Flight status of 94% totaling over $3500: new AC compressor and parts, used stock air cleaner sand blasted, and powder coated to original condition, duct assembly and all the little stuff required for NCRS points: new carpet, insulation, floormats, seat backs, parking brake cover, new antenna & cable (radio works fine now without the booster). All the plastic headliner parts have been removed and dyed back to original Saffron (Mahogany). Repainted valve covers and replaced all worn out stickers under the hood and in storage compartment. Recently, new T-top pads were added.

As mentioned above, car is fully documented, original brochure, paperwork, key knock-offs are available.
Color is a rare and stunning Mahogany (only 2121/40274 made) with the matching Mahogany Leather. Condition is excellent and with a NCRS award it will make a great addition to a private collection, a proud daily driver also with appreciation potential.

Seller would like to trade it together with a 1998 Harley Fatboy Anniversary Edition on a 96 CE LT4 Coupe or Convertible or 96 Grand Sport, or any interesting and special late C4s.

Corvette trades are entertained, nationwide and international delivery provided on demand.
