Would like to know if any members are  or would consider selling their 1978 Corvette Pace Car.  Have been looking for quite sometime and not finding anything that hasn't been abused or modified.  Preference is one with a full option package including an L82 with Automatic Transmission, Gymkhana Suspension and AM-FM Radio stereo with CB/ Power TriAntenna and Dual Rear Speakers but will consider all others.  Only requirements are it must be original (or as close as it can get), non-molested, not a wreck or flood car.

Had a 2004 while in but have always wanted one of these and now having retired from the military I can, if it can be found.

Thank you and please feel free to share my information with the membership.

Have  found an acceptable vehicle though the radio has been switched out and no suspension package but otherwise it’s a 9 out of 10 vehicle Looking for comments on this front end, specifically area around the turn signal inverts and how the front is finished around them.  Know that these years had lackluster work but is this the norm for a PC or is something else going on?

Appears to me they are punched back and the front cut around the inside where the turn signal inserts mate.   

Have requested better photos.

Check here.  There have been a few '78 Pace Cars moving through BaT recently.  Not promoting the sight but it's fun seeing what has been coming up for auction.  The prices that things sell for can get a bit steep (at least IMHO).
