Vehicle Description:





THE VETTE NET is a nationwide Corvette brokerage network and proud Lifetime Business Member of the National Corvette Museum.

Thanks for stopping by to view this stunning Torch Red custom C3 Corvette. It is located in MICHIGAN.

IMPORTANT DETAILS:  This 1978 Corvette was frame-on restored in two thousand nineteen by the owner. He did a fantastic job as demonstrated by the photos.

Under the hood you will see the General Motors ZZ6 Crate Engine (350c.i.) factory rated at 405 horsepower. It is mated to a Turbo Hydra-Matic automatic transmission with overdrive. If you enjoy performance but want to cruise the highways in a classic C3, this is the Corvette for you.

Of course, a new aluminum exhaust system was installed and features electric cut-outs. The suspension was also restored and a fiberglass mono rear spring installed. The factory power disc brakes were fully serviced.

The owner installed an aftermarket fiberglass bumper front and rear. You will also notice the raised hood scoop, aftermarket chrome wheels, and the front and rear spoilers.  All of those custom touches and the black racing stripe give this Corvette a very aggressive look. It certainly receives frequent compliments.
