This 1968 Corvette has 76,242 actual miles (mileage not indicated
on the title) and came from the factory with an L71 iron-block
427ci V8 engine outfitted with 11:1 pistons, Holley triple 2-barrel
carburetors (two R3659As and one R4055A) as well as a Winters
aluminum intake manifold. A solid-lifter camshaft was used, along
with a set of closed-chamber rectangular-port heads. The bottom was
fortified with forged crankshaft and 4-bolt mains. Backing this
matching-numbers engine is an M21 4-speed manual transmission and
factory-optioned posi-traction rear end. No expense was spared on
this Corvette's restoration, which was done with originality in
mind. Its original finish was removed, and the body was prepared
for paint with polyester primer, block-sanded, smoothed and
straightened, then sealed and painted with base coat/clear coat
paint in its original LeMans Blue color. It looks great with nice
door gaps and panel fit. The bumpers were rechromed along with
windshield pillar caps. A new date-coded front windshield was
installed, along with a date-coded convertible top, carpet, dash
pad, door panels and center console, five bias-ply red line tires
and body weatherstripping. This Corvette sold new at Courtesy
Chevrolet in Thousand Oaks, CA, and includes its original Tank
Sticker, Protect-O-Plate booklet, owner's manual and receipts, and
two sets of original keys. ** PREVIEW
