Franklin Mint / 1978 Corvette Indy Pace Car / Limited Edition 7,500 / FM DISCONTINUED / 1:24th Scale

Black & Silver

This was the 25th anniversary for the Corvette and Chevrolet introduced the most extensively redesigned Corvette since 1968. 25th Anniversary emblems appeared on the 1978 Corvette. The Corvette was honored as the Pace Car for the 1978 Indy 500 and to commemorate the event, Chevrolet built limited edition Corvettes with their own VIN number sequence. The Wall Street Journal ran a front page article about the 1978 Indy Pace Cars, indicating they would be an excellent investment. Since only 6,502 Limited Edition Pace Cars were built, and only 7,500 diecasts are being produced by Franklin Mint, it's safe to say that a number of real car owners are going to want the miniature. (Veteran FM collectors know what happened with the '82 Collector Edition). Vinny
