Check out this absolutely gorgeous 1968 Chevrolet Corvette! 1968 ushered in a new era America's sports car, introducing the C3 body style! This Corvette is a stunning example of the breed and its previous owner acquired it as a barn find with around 50,000 original miles. Afterwards, he brought this '68 back to its former glory with a no expense spared 3-Year Long, Nut and Bolt Frame-Off Restoration! During the restoration, the body was completely stripped down and the frame was media blasted and powder coated. This Corvette was then refinished and reupholstered in it's Rare Factory Correct Exterior and Interior Colors! The seating was also upgraded to leather upholstery during the process! After the restoration was completed in 2020, the previous owner and his wife would take this '68 out to car shows, cruise-ins, and to lunch or dinner on beautiful days. Take a look at this C3's sweeping body lines, Silverstone Silver Exterior Paint with Removable T-Tops, 15'' Original Style Wheels with Firestone Super Sport Bias Ply Tires, Flip-Up Headlights, Fender Extractors, Chrome Bumpers, and Polished Trim! Inside, this Corvette is sporting Bucket Seating with Gunmetal Leather Upholstery, Gray Carpeting and Floor Mats, a 3-Spoke Steering Wheel, Stock Dashboard Gauges with a Speed Warning Speedometer, Center Console with Stock Auxiliary Gauges and a Clock, Push-Button Radio, along with ample storage space in the rear cargo area.

Powering this '68 Corvette is a Numbers Matching GM 427ci V8 Engine with a '68 Correct Quadrajet 4-Barrel Carburetor sitting on top and '68 Correct Exhaust Manifolds! This powerplant produces 390 Horsepower that's sent to the rear tires through a Numbers Matching Muncie M20 4-Speed Manual Transmission (Greg misspoke in the video) and an Independent Rear End with 3.08:1 Gears and Posi! This C3 is a blast to drive and you can cruise around with ease thanks to the equipped Power Steering and 4-Wheel Disc Brakes! The undercarriage of this Corvette looks incredible like the rest of the car! Take a look underneath to see the nice condition of the Powder Coated Frame, Fiberglass Floorboards, Spare Tire Carrier (Spare Included), Brakes with New Brake Lines, Independent Front and Rear Suspension, along with the New Factory Style Dual Exhaust System!
