Keith Cornett's View

The 1978 Chevrolet Corvette Silver Anniversary Edition is a collector's dream, combining historical significance, unique design, and impressive performance. This Corvette's independent front suspension with coil springs and a stabilizer bar, combined with the independent rear suspension, ensures excellent handling and a smooth ride. The dual exhaust system delivers an exhilarating sound, adding to the car's overall driving experience. 1978 was a year of significant changes to the C3 Corvette. A new “fastback” design which made for a smoother silhouette and answered criticisms of limited luggage space; owners now had storage similar to the mid-years Corvette coupes.  Keith Cornett is the Senior Editor of CorvetteBlogger, owner of Vettefinders, and author of Corvette Special Editions.

Marking a quarter-century of production, this model features distinctive design elements and performance upgrades that make it a standout classic. The Corvette was 25 years old in 1978 and the celebration was on.

The sleek fastback design introduced in this model year enhances the car’s silhouette and improves luggage space.

Modern comforts include power locks, power brakes, power steering, tilt & telescopic steering column, cruise control, and an aftermarket AM/FM stereo radio. The air conditioning, heater, and defroster system with a 3-speed blower ensure a comfortable ride. Full instrumentation includes a speedometer with a trip odometer, tachometer, voltmeter, oil pressure, and water temperature gauges.
