1968 Chevrolet Corvette
1968 was the first year Corvette that was based on the Mako Shark II concept car. The long nose, swooping fenders and muscular stance remained largely unchanged from 1968 through 1981. The spirit of the concept car was definitely the strongest in 1968.
This convertible came from the factory contains an L36 427 big block with 390 hp mated to a 4 speed manual transmission. This vehicle has only been driven in nice weather with the top down so the ragtop hasn’t been exposed to the sunshine and neither has the hard top which was an extra option at time of purchase.
The interior is original, the mechanicals are all sound and the clutch is great. It has a clean title with 76000 original miles. Overall, the paint is in good condition with a few areas that need attention (including the right rear quarter had a tire blowout and stripped some of the paint but didn’t damage the body).
The headlights flip up and down, the suspension is tight, the tires are like new and the chrome wheels are in great shape. The water pump is a new upgraded version to withstand the Arizona heat.
This nice driver only needs a few finishing touches to make it a $40,000 car! Any questions you have, please don’t hesitate to ask!
