What would normally be considered an amazing find is being lost in the crumbling price structure of the American collector car market. When a 1978 Corvette Indy Pace Car was chosen as this week’s Deal of the Day on the Cars-On-Line.com website, some collectors hardly noticed what a great find this was.
Collector cars are eye candy of an extraordinary sort. This 1978 Corvette Indy Pace Car is being offered for sale by Streetside Classics out of their Tampa, Florida location. (Follow this link to review the description and see dozens of high resolution photos.) It was the first in a long line of special Corvette performance sports cars to pace the Indianapolis 500 race. That was the 10th Anniversary year for the Corvette and represented a time when the legendary Corvette crossed over from being just a sports car to being a collectible from the gitgo. The ’78 Pace Car is still revered as one of the best looking Corvettes of all time. Streetside Classics in Tampa, Florida is offering this one for sale with just 71k miles. Pace cars came loaded. Watch their walk-around video at this link to see why it was chosen as the Deal of the Day on the internet. Their asking price is only $19,995.
The Deal of the Day is a feature of the Cars-On-Line.com website. Every day Cars-On-Line.com picks a special car to be their Deal of the Day based on the price. Usually it is because the price is a discount to the average values in the collector car market. Then, when the Cars-On-Line.com newsletter is printed each Friday, they give you a preview on which cars will make the Deal of the Day for the coming week. Often these cars sell in the newsletter before they even make it to the home page! You’ll always see them in the weekly Cars-On-Line.com newsletter.
