This 1968 Chevrolet Corvette has its numbers-matching V8, a true
vintage style, and the kind of value price that's irresistible for
a first-year C3 Corvette.
The long hood, sculpted fenders, and the flying buttress rear - the
quality of this body on this example really drives home your
favorite parts of the C3 coupe. The Polar White is the
factory-correct color, and there has been a respray along the way
to make sure there's a bright look to this driver-ready style. And
speaking of bright, these early third-gen cars were for lovers of
brightwork. So it's nice to see they updated the chrome to keep it
distinctly shining on the shark-like nose, hallmark Rally wheels,
and the cool two-piece rear bumper. So while this one does have a
bit of a barn find story, the overall impression is a coupe done
The tobacco brown interior continues the factory-correct color
package. There have been investments in the right places, like the
fresh-feeling covers of the bucket seats. But overall, there is a
vintage and preserved style. So while fickle buyers may invest in
easy-to-source pieces, like a carpeting kit, we already like the
classic vibes that come from features like the thin/grippy sports
steering wheel and working Delco AM/FM stereo. Power windows,
T-tops, and the removable rear window open this one up to the
world. And this was even a factory A/C car (it will need components
and servicing to return the function.)
Under the hood is the numbers-matching 327 cubic-inch V8, and it's
even topped with a correct Quadrajet four-barrel carburetor. It has
a stock style like the rest of the car, and you will spot some
updates, like newer wiring and a newer master cylinder. A coupe
like this was built for good all-around driving, that's why you
have easy driving features, like power steering and a three-speed
automatic transmission. Plus, few 1960s sports cars can match the
Corvette's superior handling package that includes a fully
independent suspension and four-wheel power disc brakes.
You're looking at a first-year C3 with a ton of appeal offered for
a value price. It's an irresistible deal, and so you need to call
