The 1978 Chevrolet Corvette L82 finished in correct silver over leather Oyster interior was offered for sale at the 2006 Worldwide Group Auction held on Hilton Head Island where it was expected to sell between $18,000-$28,000. It was one of the few vehicles of the day to be offered without reserve. It is equipped with a 350 cubic-inch overhead valve V8 engine that produces 220 horsepower. It is matted to a four-speed automatic gearbox that sends power to the rear wheels. There are four-wheel disc brakes on all four wheels.

In 1978 there were over 40,000 examples of the Corvette produced. 12,739 were outfitted with the L82 high output engine with 3,385 of those fitted with the Muncie four-speed gearbox. This vehicle is one of those 3,385. Its first owner ordered the car with power brakes, power windows, air conditioning, and the leather interior. At the conclusion of the sale the vehicle had found a new home at the selling price of $17,900.
