Corvette Of The Day: 1978 Chevrolet Corvette Pace Car Replica
The 1978 Corvette Pace Car Replica is arguably one of the most popular examples of the C3 Corvette. Its original design was very different from the car that everyone knows today. In the design phase, the original Pace Car design was to feature a two-tone silver paint with red striping, and was to feature special Goodyear tires with the word “CORVETTE” imprinted in raised, white, sidewall lettering. Additionally, only 300 of these collector Pace Cars were going to be produced in commemoration of the original 300 Corvettes built in 1953.
