The 1978 Corvette celebrated its 25th anniversary with a completely redesigned body that included new “fastback” styling.
The new wrap-around rear window provided much more space behind the seats but was not a hatchback. All corvettes this year came with special 25th anniversary badging. A special “Anniversary Edition” included a unique Charcoal Silver/Silver Metallic two-tone paint job. This was not a limited edition, and 15,283 Corvettes were eventually sold with this paint option.
The 1978 Corvette was also the pace car for the Indy 500. Production was limited to one per Chevrolet dealership, amounting to 6,502. This car had Black/Silver two-tone paint with red pinstripe.
