1978 Corvette Indy Pace Car Decals

Print Friendly and PDF

When a 1978 Iny Pace car was ordered, the printed build sheet listed a number of limited edition items. For example, RPO Z78 was called Appearance Package, 25th Anniversary (Limited Edition). The RPOs associated with that defined a Pace car and included RPO D88 for accent stripes, D75 for the rear spoiler, D80 for the front air damn reflector, DL6 for the pace car decal and CC1 for the glass T-tops and all of the other convenience options.

With the exception of D88 and DL6, all other Pace Car decals were placed in a single box in the rear storage compartment of each Pace Car that left the factory. The part number for this box is GM #476282. Below is a summary of the decals and part numbers that came in that box:
