This 1968 Chevrolet Corvette is a first-year C3 in its correct
blue-on-blue combo and has its numbers-matching V8 under the hood.
And as you dig deeper, you'll see a well-priced icon that show off
its history with pride.
The Corvette was all new for 1968, and today we know the C3 as the
longest running model of all the 'Vettes. It had staying power
because no other car really captured the imagination quite like
this. The long hood and short deck design was inspired by the best
European sports cars, but it had the beefy fenders to make sure we
all knew it was an American. Big chrome bumpers and sharp lines
gave it the aggressive flair we want in an American car, too. But
this example lets the European influence slip back in a little more
than others. You see it in places like the kind of luggage rack
that wouldn't look out of place on an MG. And the factory LeMans
Blue color pays tribute to France's greatest endurance race.
The factory blue interior means this was born with an attractive
kind of color combo you'd find in a Bentley or Mercedes. And this
Corvette arguably offers just as good a grand touring experience as
those Europeans. Well-done bucket seats, an armrest center console,
and a grippy wood-rimmed steering wheel make this a nice driver's
environment. The budget price means you can improve anything if you
so desire. But we like that this is both highly original and
already comes with some great factory features like power windows
and the factory AM/FM radio. The T-tops come out, and this is from
the years of the removable rear window, so you get a terrific open
air experience. You can even upgrade the factory air conditioning
if you feel like having a cooler breeze run through the car.
Under the hood is original numbers matching 327 cubic-inch V8. You
can easily tell this is well maintained motor by the way the bold
orange block, chrome valve covers, and bright air topper all look
great. You'll even spot newer components like the alternator and
brake master cylinder. It's a strong V8 that inhales thorough a
correct four-barrel carburetor, and it has a subtly sweet tune as
it exhales through the dual exhaust. The TH400 three speed
automatic transmission is an ideal pairing because it's strong
enough to handle the torque while also shifting smooth for the
right grand touring feel. This sharp driving nature is backed up by
the fully independent sports suspension, power steering, and
four-wheel power disc brakes.
Complete with owner's manual, this is the very American Corvette
with an added touch of Euro flair. And you get it all for quite a
nice price. Call today!!!
