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.
