It has a great sounding dual exhaust system and a 4-speed transmission, this Corvette steers and stops like a sports car should. These Corvettes are smooth riding and put the power to the ground with an inverse leaf spring independent rear suspension. The 68 model has vacuum operated flip up headlights and a vacuum operated windshield wiper cowl.


Our Corvette has an original looking standard black twin bucket seat interior, with the matching black carpet, center console, and dash with its factory tach and gauges. It has the factory chrome 4-speed shifter in that center console. Black is present throughout including the door panels, headliner, and in the storage area and boxes behind the seats.

The original Delco radio resides in the console with the Fiber Optic lights above and you will notice the factory wood steering wheel too.


The exterior is painted #984 Safari Yellow which also matches the Trim Tag to show it is the original color it was born with. That shade of yellow is really pleasant and looks good with the chrome accents, bumpers, and Chevrolet Rallye Wheels with thin white wall tires that provide a classic and clean look.

The curves on C3 Corvettes are famously loved and the working flip up headlights add to the sports car appeal as well as the dual chrome exhaust tips exiting the rear that look and sound great.
