As far as practical classics go, few cars beat the third generation Chevrolet Corvette. Combining comfort, power, reliability and strikingly good looks, the Corvette C3 was produced over one and a half decades, spanning multiple stylistic changes and engine choices in what would become the brand’s longest-running sports car model.

From the early “chrome bumper” cars to the late Pace Car and Collector Edition cars, the Corvette has become a cultural icon of the American mystique and love for the open road.

This example is one of roughly 6,500 Pace Car Editions, celebrating the legendary Indianapolis 500 Race in 1978. One car was given to each Chevrolet dealer, and many collectors decided to preserve them as collectibles, keeping mileage low —this is one of such cars.
