1978 CHEVROLET CORVETTE INDY PACE 3,700 MILES

For decades, Chevrolet has produced special edition Corvettes to commemorate milestones of the brand, to celebrate anniversaries and, of course, to serve as the official pace car of the Indianapolis 500. While the idea of a Corvette pace car is almost common place today, the tradition of using “America’s Sports Car” as an official pace car actually begin in 1978. The 1978 Corvette Indy Pace Car, much like the Silver Anniversary Edition, featured a special two-tone paint scheme. Unlike the Silver Anniversary Edition, this car came finished in black over a silver metallic and featured a bright red pinstripe between the two-tone paint. The Corvette Indy Pace Car also featured a special front and rear spoiler, both of which were designed to add a more dramatic appearance to the car, though neither offered much in the way of additional downforce. The front spoiler was similar to the one installed on the 1978 Pontiac Trans Am. It wrapped under and around the front of the car before blending into the wheel wells. Conversely, the rear spoiler curved down at its out-bored ends to meet the body-sides of the Corvette. The interior of the Corvette Pace Car was directly influenced by Bill Mitchell and featured either full silver leather or leather/gray cloth upholstery and gray carpeting. For the 1978 Pace Car, Chevrolet introduced a new, thin-shell seat design that featured more lumbar support. Although these seats were originally slated for the 1979 model, the development program was accelerated so that these new seats could be introduced in the 1978 Pace Car package.Today, the 1978 Corvette Indy Pace Car continues to hold its value far better than most other Corvettes from that era.
