It's becoming increasingly difficult to find a big-block Corvette
these days with as much originality, purity and documentation as
this beautiful '68 Corvette Convertible. Originally delivered by a
dealer in New Mexico, this car was equipped to keep the driver as
comfortable as possible in the desert climate. This car was ordered
with a black vinyl covered removable hardtop, sans the more common
folding top configuration. Although not shown in the photos, the
hardtop is in good condition and comes with the car. Later in life,
an original Corvette convertible frame and black vinyl folding top
were added for more versatility. Factory air conditioning keeps the
enclosed cabin cool, while factory style power steering was
installed along with the convertible top.
Finished in beautiful Safari Yellow, this car still wears a large
percentage of its original paint. The rear deck cover and an area
on the drivers front fender show some touch-up attention. However,
the overall paint still presents well with only a few minor nicks.
The interior and top are in very nice condition as is all the
brightwork and glass. This is a great example of a surviving,
original 427 Corvette.
The purity of its appearance is enhanced by the numbers matching
427/390hp V8 and M20 4-speed transmission. Well documented with the
original tank sticker, keys, owners manual and more, this is truly
a desirable example of the first of the third generation
