Description

• Absolutely Perfect for a Car Guy's (or Gal's) Man (or Car) Cave!! Another Car Art Print by Automotive Artist and Writer, K. Scott Teeters.

1978 Pace Car Special Corvette C3 Car Art Print,78 Pace Car Corvette,78 Nostalgic Corvette,1978 Pace Car, C3 Corvette,1978 Corvette Art,By K. Scott Teeters, ICS Series 2 No. 61

**** Don't See the year or model Corvette You Need? We probably have it and will create a listing for you. Just Convo or Email Us!!****

• Scott has been illustrating and writing about fast cars for over thirty years.

• This print is signed and numbered by the artist in a series of 500. And the print you receive will not show a watermark.

• This 11" x 17" black ink technical illustration is printed on parchment print paper with a commercial grade laser printer. Color of paper may vary from that depicted on your monitor.

• Your parchment paper print is carefully shrink wrapped on 12 x 18 brown cardboard and shipped via USPS Priority Mail. Print may be push pinned or tacked on your garage wall as delivered or you may take it out of its shrink wrapper and mat and frame it in a standard 16 by 20 frame.

• See the last pic to see an example of a random print shrink wrapped. Paper color is actually lighter parchment color.

• This art is "as seen in Vette Magazine" several years ago.

• Background story by K. Scott Teeters:

"Initially, it looked like a triple-play for Chevrolet. First, the '78 Corvette received a sleek new fastback roof that completed the overall redesign started in '73 with the soft bumper covers. Second, all Corvettes wore the 25th Anniversary badges. And third, a special edition Corvette would serve as the pace car at the '78 Indy 500. Then the details set in.

The initial idea was that there would be 300 pace car replicas the same number as the '53 production run. The car would have a two-tone silver paint (for the silver anniversary), red pin striping, and special Goodyear tires with "CORVETTE" sidewall lettering. Then the plan was to make 2,500 replicas, 100 for each year of production. But there were 6,200 dealers that all wanted at least one replica, so production went up to 6,502 units.

Then there was the price issue. The RPO Z78 package cost $4,302! Here's what came with the option. The exterior had special two-tone paint and pin striping, front and rear spoilers, glass roof panels, sport mirrors, and red pin stripped aluminum wheels on P225/60R15 tires. The interior came with power windows and door locks, tilt-telescopic steering column, convenience group, silver thin-shell seats, AM/FM with a CB radio or an 8-track tape player, dual rear speakers, and a power antenna. The $525 L82 engine rated at 220 hp was not part of the package."
