'78 Corvette barn find



MSN Cars reports that this special edition 1978 C3 Corvette, an Indy Pace Car replica edition, has been discovered in a US barn showing just 13 miles on the clock. The original owner bought it as an investment and mothballed it as soon as it was driven home from the dealership, so it still sports the original plastic seat protectors and the bill of sale in the window. It's now up for sale at $50,000 (which is about £32,000); the original purchase price of $14,631.21 equates to roughly, er, $50,000 in today's money... I guess the lesson there is that if you're going to buy yourself an awesome sports car, you might as well get out there and enjoy the bloody thing.

The Gymkhana suspension option apparently consisted of stiffer front springs, seven-leaf rears, thicker front sway bar and added rear sway bar...
