Vehicle Description

1968 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible

From boulevard cruising to backroad bruising, it's hard to find a better all-around performer than a Corvette. And once Chevrolet firmly established the brand as a global tour de force, it began a constant quest to achieve increasing levels of performance and desirability. No generation of Corvette emphasizes the transition from muscle car to all-out sports car better than the C3.

This beautiful Corvette with a very nice color combination, graces our halls here at Classic Auto Mall. It stands out as something very much original 1968 looking, has a year correct drivetrain although not numbers matching. And those nice chrome bumpers and black rockers just adds to the exterior Corvette mystique. And it's a convertible with a hardtop if you want it?

Exterior
A 984 nice red respray in the incorrect color match shows very nicely with no checks or cracks, just smooth deep red paint. The sculpted body is highlighted on the front quarters by shark-like gill venting with some chrome accenting. The hidden headlight grille and a spear like hood bump is long and perfect. A black rocker cover with a strip of stainless accenting above is reserved for the rockers. On the back the curvaceous rear quarters frame the deep dish Chevrolet rally wheels and raised white letter tires. The rear has a split chromed bumper, roll pan tailpipes with bezels, and 4 round pristine taillights. Note the black convertible top is in fine shape with a clear plastic rear window. Consigner states this car will also come with a black hardtop. The look and stance of this year is quickly becoming one of my favs, along with the rounded look of the 76-77 versions.

Interior
Black vinyl in this 1968 model year, covers the buckets, door panels, and dash. This creates a beautiful combination to the exterior red. No fading and very slight wear is seen on the drivers chair, however overall it presents in very good condition. Center console is wrapped in black and uses aluminum highlighting as well as some black and a large chrome shift knob to set everything off. Also, a wood steering wheel adds a nice touch to the overall interior. Carpeting throughout appears as like new in black. Nice deep inset gauges for the driver as well as the cluster of 5 in the center keep you up to date of the car's vitals.

Drivetrain
A 327/250hp power mill is backed by a 4-speed Muncie manual transmission, residing in an overall clean engine bay. Power brakes are an extra option. Edelbrock provides the 4-barrel carburetor, and intake manifold. The rear axle weighs in at 3.36. New blue high voltage wires snake their way through this engine and nice rust-free headers are also noted.

Undercarriage
A gander underside reveals 4-wheel power disc brakes, a good condition frame and floor construction as well as a clean suspension. Suspension is fully independent for the front and rear. Exhaust is nice and clean rust free.

Drive-Ability
I liken this test drive to driving a piece of fine art sculpture, and it performed as it should for the drivetrain. For the convenience, yes I noticed the wiper cowl does not go down when you turn them off with a switch which is controlled by the override setup. The headlights do not rotate up, and the radio is not installed but does come with this car along with the hardtop.

Just a very nice looking, well sorted 1st year C-3 Stingray that runs and sounds like it did in '68. If you are in the market for a well-equipped early Corvette that's ready to cruise, do not hesitate on this one...When the shark bites....!
