A numbers-matching tri-power 427 big block with four-on-the-floor... oh yeah, this 1968 Chevrolet Corvette is everything you want in a fast and distinguished first-year C3 'Vette.
International blue is a great factory color to have on a Corvette. It was only offered for one year, and this was given a high-quality respray. The result is a look that's distinctive for both its luster and its history. The car has a nice look of quality on in the way the doors close and the headlight flaps rest flush. This is the era for C3 fans who like brightwork, including the shark-like front bumper, two-piece rear bumper, window trim, and Rally wheels all have a nice shine. Of course, the thing that people will notice most is upgrade to an L88 hood. It just really gives this cool Corvette an extra-mean streak.
The moment you open the door, you can see there was even more investment in the car. The factory-correct black has a clean, fresh, and inviting look. Items like the seats and carpeting are unmistakably newer. But you can also see they kept an eye on authenticity because of details like the working factory-style AM/FM radio and fiber optic lights. And since this is from the era of the removable rear window, you can take it out with the T-tops to have a true open-air experience. This is a driver's car with the large dual speedo and tach package right in front of you, and there's a full set of gauges to the side. But we know what really grabbed all your attention...the bright chrome shifter seizes your focus like a beacon begging you to get in and start this one up.
Under the hood is the numbers-matching 427 cubic-inch V8. And you know you'll just love lifting the hood at car show to show off the triangle air topper that signals the triple set of dual-barrel carburetors underneath. This has the clean look of good maintenance, and they way this mighty tri-power V8 runs strong reaffirms its good care. So you'll love taking full control of the monster motor with the numbers-matching four-speed manual transmission. And because the C3 was one of the best sports cars of its day, the fully independent suspension and four-wheel disc brakes mean this big power beast is easy to tame.
The big block makes this a mean machine, but the investments in quality make it so nice to love. Classics this nice don't come along too often or stay too long. Call today!!!
