Vehicle Description

Gateway Classic Cars of Scottsdale is excited to offer this stunning 1968 Chevrolet Corvette convertible (with removable hardtop) for sale right now in our Arizona showroom, located in North Phoenix. While this C3 body style became synonymous with the Corvette name, it was considered bold in 1968 and was a radical, forward-thinking departure from the outgoing C2. The signature fiberglass body on this Corvette is painted in a luscious "British Green" and it's hard not to fall for the classic styling cues like the vacuum operated headlights, wrap-around front and rear bumpers and functional louvers behind the front wheels. For the first time ever in a Corvette, the removable hardtop had a glass rear window and there is a black convertible top that comes with this car as well, so you have three presentation options. This vehicle is a special find; it's a Numbers-Matching (stated by the seller) vehicle with 3 owners from new and comes fully documented with original sales invoices, manuals, service history and more. This 1968 convertible even entered into the National Corvette Restorers Society ("NCRS") and received a Second Flight award for originality. The cast iron 327 CID V8, rated at 300hp from the factory, comes with a 4bbl carburetor and a torque rating of 360lb ft making this 'Vette the definition of a great power-to-weight ratio! The 4-speed manual transmission provides a healthy amount of "Smiles Per Gallon" as you make the most of the horses this all-American sports car has to offer. Inside, you are greeted with an exceptionally well preserved "Tobacco" brown colored vinyl interior that was special ordered from the factory. The contoured bucket seats are comfortable and housed between the center console is the shifter/parking brake lever, cigarette lighter/ashtray, heater controls, radio and several monitoring gauges. This dashing Corvette convertible for sale is an appreciating asset and it's a fun driver- what more could you want from a classic car?!
