Vehicle Description

1968 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible

From boulevard cruising to backroad bruising, it's hard to find a better all-around performer than a Corvette. And once Chevrolet firmly established the brand as a global tour de force, it began a constant quest to achieve increasing levels of performance and desirability. No generation of Corvette emphasizes the transition from muscle car to all-out sports car better than the C3.

This beautiful Corvette with a very nice color combination, graces our halls here at Classic Auto Mall. It stands out as something very much original 1968 looking and has a later model engine with the added benefit of fuel injection. And those nice chrome bumpers and black rockers just adds to the exterior Corvette mystique. And it's a convertible, what more could you want?

A code 978 nice International Blue respray in the correct color match shows very nicely with no checks or cracks, just smooth deep blue paint. The sculpted body is highlighted on the front quarters by shark-like gill venting with some chrome accenting. The hidden headlights with new vacuum pods, grille, and a spear like hood bump are long and perfect. A black rocker cover with a strip of stainless accenting above is reserved for the rockers. On the back the curvaceous rear quarters frame the deep dish Chevrolet rally wheels and like new Hankook blackwall tires. The rear has a split chromed bumper, roll pan tailpipes with bezels, and 4 round pristine tail lights. Note the black cloth convertible top is in fine shape with a clear plastic rear window. The look and stance of this year is quickly becoming one of my favs, along with the rounded look of the 76-77 versions.

Black leather and vinyl in this 1968 model year covers the buckets, door panels, and dash. This creates a beautiful combination to the exterior blue. No fading and very slight wear is seen on the leather drivers chair, however overall it presents in very good condition. Center console is wrapped in black and uses aluminum highlighting as well as some black and a large chrome shift knob to set everything off. Also, a black leather wrapped steering wheel adds a nice touch to the overall interior. Carpeting throughout appears as like new in black. Nice deep inset gauges for the driver as well as the cluster of 5 in the center keep you up to date of the car's vitals. We note an added AM/FM/Bluetooth stereo and 3 speakers in the rear storage area.

A non-original 350ci V8 mill is backed by a 4-speed Muncie manual transmission circa 1964/65, residing in an overall clean engine bay. Power steering is an extra added option. FiTech provides the electronic fuel injection and is perched atop a Winters foundry aluminum intake manifold. The rear axle weighs in at 3.36 and Positraction with an AM stamping code. An HEI tach-drive distributor lights the fire and an aluminum radiator is on to keep things cool with this consignor stated 400hp shark.

A gander underside reveals 4-wheel disc brakes, a good condition but patinaed frame and floor construction as well as a clean suspension. Suspension is fully independent for the front and rear with the front being coil spring and the rear being a frame anchored differential with transverse leaf springs. Exhaust is nice, clean and rust free.

I liken this test drive to driving a piece of fine art sculpture, and it performed as it should for the drivetrain. Endless power from the injected 350, bias free braking and great handling all wrapped up in a fun in the sun package. The only issue that crept up during our drive is we noticed the odometer is non-functional.

Just a very nice looking, well sorted 1st year C-3 Stingray that runs and sounds better than it did in '68. If you are in the market for a well-equipped early Corvette that's ready to cruise, do not hesitate on this one...When the shark bites....!
