Please help, my Corvette books are in storage!

I am volunteering at a classic car show this Sat, and I have been offered a gratis spot in the show for the 78!

I like to post a fact sheet in her window with information, but all of my things are in storage!
Here are the things I need to know:
Total production numbers for 1978
Correction if 6,502 Pace Cars is incorrect
Number of Silver Anniversary editions (around 12k, I think)
The base price for the 78 coupe, Pace Car and Silver Anniversary models (the SA was a $399 option above the coupe price, with special paint scheme, alum wheels and sport mirrors)
Specs on the L48 and L82 (these were the only 2 engines offered, right?)

I think thats it...but if you have anymore interesting 1978 trivia, include that, too!

Thank you for any help!

Hi, 78SilvAnniv,

I don't know if you already copied this page from my site
but again here are the options, units and prices from the 1978 models.

As far as I know the options, units and prices on this page are correct.

But, if anyone should have more information or knows that some of this information is incorrect please let me know!

Lots of fun and succes Saturday! :w

Silver,
Please take a look to the top of the page (here) the section called Speccificatiions. You may find some information there ;)
Won't be like having the owners manual or build sheet, but it is a VERY GOOD STARTING point :s

Have fun this weekend :D

Bud,
I have already tried specifications...and there is a message that asks if I'd like to be emailed when the information has been compiled...that is why I asked in the forum! :p

Rene,
I will go back to your site and check it out, I remember its information was accurate!

I'll report later if I don't find all I need on Rene's site.

Got it!

Thanks Rene,

I am curious, the listing of the options and their prices...is that in addition to the base price?

I was also interested to find how many L82 and L48 engines were produced!

Thanks again everyone, I'll take photos at the show and let you know how it went!
