1978 Corvette Production Volumes

The 1978 Corvette sold quite well, moving 46,776 units in all. Of these, 6,502 sold were the limited edition Corvette Pace Car model, which retailed for more than $4,000 over the standard model.  While the base coupe started at $9,351.00, the Pace Car had a sticker price of $13,653.21.  Still, the Pace car had a unique “collector’s quality” about it which made it extremely desirable to consumers – so much so that every Pace Car in 1978 sold for more than list price.
