For Sale: 1968 Chevrolet Corvette in Charlotte, North Carolina

Vehicle Description

For 1968 the Corvette sported a completely redesigned body and interior. The results were a sleek, curvaceous body that was an instant hit. Typical for Corvette, the aggressive body work covered the potent engine underneath. The thundering power-plant of this 1968 Corvette Convertible is the legendary L71 427 cubic-inch big block with the ultra-rare L89 option that added aluminum cylinder heads. Only 624 L89 Corvettes were ever produced making this one of the most sought after C3s' made. Mated to the close-ratio 4-speed manual and posi-traction rear axle this Corvette is all about performance.
