Originally the car was Dark Brown Metallic. Exterior with a repaint in PPG Radiant Tide Red. Interior in Light Doeskin has been re-dyed, with what appear to be new seat covers and carpet. The 1978 Corvettes had a new fastback roofline and rear window. These changes enhanced the Corvette’s sleek silhouette. The new and improved rear window not only allows for a cleaner styling profile, it also improved visibility for the driver and added extra luggage space, and storage for the removable tops. This car has both a set of painted red tops and the original smoked glass tops. Equipped with fifteen-inch Corvette Rallye style wheels and appear to be in like new condition.
