For Sale: 1968 Chevrolet Corvette in Volo, Illinois

Vehicle Description

#s matching driveline, factory red-red! Same owner the last 26 years. Older body off frame restoration. Very clean, honest, unabused Corvette.

EXTERIOR: This Vette looks sharp. 26 year old paint and it's beautiful! I don't see any damage or repairs. The body gaps are excellent. Repainted it's original Rally Red color. It is smooth and glossy. You have to get up close and look for flaws before you'll find any. In front the bumper and grill is shiny and fit nice. The stainless trim around the windshield is polished. In back the bumpers, license plate surround and emblems are shiny. The Firestone tires don't have many miles. 15x8 rally wheels have straight, shiny trim. The door jambs are clean. Weather strips and window seals are nice. The black convertible top is in excellent shape, the weather strips were replaced.

INTERIOR: Born with red interior. Very nice, unabused shape throughout. The seats are in excellent condition. Door panels look mint. The red carpet front to back looks great. The dash area is nice. No cracks, gauges are clean, lenses are clear. The steering wheel is excellent. The center console is detailed up real nice, it has the correct shifter with the reverse lock out. A factory retro stereo fits right in the factory location. The interior lights work. Heater controls, vents, plastic trim, red GM seat belts, visors are all very nice.

ENGINE COMPARTMENT: #s matching 327-300 hp. The casting codes are correct, the vin is stamped on the pad. The motor looks all stock including the manifolds, valve covers, new reproduction chrome air cleaner, original ignition shield. It has proper fuel filter, Harrison expansion tank, correct shroud and fan. Recently the alternator was rebuilt, water pump and hoses were replaced.

UNDERSIDE: It is an older body off frame restoration. Under the car is not detailed for show but it looks clean and proper. It has independent suspension front and back. Bottom of the motor is clean Chevy Orange. It has the lower ignition shielding. The Muncie M-20 4-speed is correct. It has correct 3.36 posi rear end. The frame is solid. The fiberglass floors look clean, spare tire carrier is complete. Factory type exhaust with new mufflers and tips. It has disc brakes at all 4 wheels, e-brake cables are hooked up.

Obviously a factory red-red Vette roadster with a 4-speed and #s matching is very desirable. After my inspection I sincerely believe this is a very honest car that will treat the next owner real well. Heck, it was good to the previous owner for 26 years!

I, Jay Grams, take pride in personally writing the descriptions for virtually every car for about the last 30 years now. A significant amount of effort goes into fact checking. What I am offering is my professional impression of the vehicle.
