Celebrating the Corvette’s twenty-fifth anniversary, every model this production year featured a special silver emblem on the nose and the fuel door. There were two special editions of the 1978 Corvette offered as part of the anniversary observance: a two-tone paint silver model with dual outside mirrors, and replicas of the Indy 500 Pace Car, which were black and silver with contoured sport seats and mirror-tint roof panels.
In order to properly refresh the look of the Corvette, a drastic change was enacted upon its rear window in 1978. This consisted of replacing it with a fastback design, which simultaneously enhanced the vehicle’s aerodynamics, improved upon rear visibility, and increased the available luggage space.
