Vehicle Description

Hello Corvette Lovers,

Jeff Whitaker here again with another world class car for you.  410-562-9319

Over 900 classics sold with a flawless reputation!



IT IS OUR PLEASURE TO PRESENT THIS HIGHLY DESIRABLE C3 CORVETTE CONVERTIBLE.  JEFF WHITAKER  410-562-9319

THIS SPECIAL VETTE IS A 12 YEAR OLD FRAME OFF RESTORED CAR THAT HAS BEEN TREATED AS A TRAILER QUEEN SINCE.
ABOUT 1,000 MILES SINCE, TRAILERED TO JUDGING EVENTS / SHOWS.  STILL SHOWS AS FRESH.
SHE'S FULLY DOCUMENTED VIA THE DEALER INVOICE AND FULL PROFESSIONAL INSPECTION BY A CORVETTE PRO.
IT IS CERTIFIED TO BE A REAL NUMBERS MATCHING DRIVETRAIN L71, 427 / 435HP. EXAMPLE.
HAS WON EVERY TOP AACA  AWARD YOU CAN WIN. MUST BE A HECK OF A CAR TO DO THAT...

1968 WAS THE FIRST YEAR OF THE LONG AWAITED MAKO SHARK GENERATION. THE "MAKO SHARK" SHOW CAR STYLINGS OF THIS NEW GEN WERE SO WILDLY EXAGGERATED THAT WE KIDS AND OUR PARENTS COULDN'T BELIEVE THAT THEY WERE GOING TO RELEASE A CAR THAT LOOKS LIKE THAT!
REMEMBER, WE WERE IN THE DAYS OF THE BATMOBILE BEING AN ICON. 

THANKFULLY, CHEVROLET DECIDED TO CALM DOWN THE BODY LINES, TO OFFER TO THE WORLD A STUNNINGLY BEAUTIFUL NEW CORVETTE.
MUCH OF THE C3'S WERE THE SAME AS THE PREVIOUS C2'S. BUT THE BODY WAS TOTALLY DIFFERENT.  MORE FLAIR, MORE PERSONALITY., THE DESIGNERS DID A FABULOUS JOB WHEN IT FINALLY CAME DOWN TO RELEASING THESE CARS TO THE WORLD.

THE CORVETTE WE ARE OFFERING TO YOU WAS WONDERFULLY ORDERED WITH THE TRIPLE CARBS, SOLID LIFTERS, THREE QUARTER RACE CAM,
HIGHER COMPRESSION, HIGH WINDING, 427 BIG BLOCK FOR THE STREET. BACKED UP BY THE MUNCIE M21, CLOSE RATIO 4 SPEED TRANNY, AND 3.55 POSI GEARS. IT WAS UNUSUAL TO CHECK OFF THE "POWER STEERING" OPTION BACK THEN. TRUE RACE CARS DIDN'T HAVE POWER STEERING.
BUT WHAT A DRIVING DIFFERENCE IT MAKES!  YOU WILL LOVE IT.  ALSO THE AUXILLARY OPTIONAL HARD TOP.  SEE THE DEALER INVOICE FOR ALL DETAILS.
SHE WAS ALSO ORDERED WITH THE SPECIAL OFF ROAD EXHAUST SYSTEM. LOUDER THAN SIDE PIPES.
SPEAKING OF SIDEPIPES, THE OWNER DECIDED HE LOVED THEM AND HAD NEW 1969 FACTORY STYLE PIPES INSTALLED AND THE COOL LITTLE ALUMINUM INSERTS FROM '69 INTO THE FENDER GILLS. BOTH CAN CERTAINLY BE REMOVED AND RETURNED TO PURE '68 STOCK.
THEY BOTH GIVE EVEN MORE SEX APPEAL TO A CAR THAT ALREADY HAD GREAT SEXY LOOKS.
SPEAKING OF SEXY, HE ALSO ORDERED A SET OF NEW CHROME TORQUE THRUST WHEELS WRAPPED IN REDLINE RADIALS. YOU GET BOTH SETS OF WHEELS AND TIRES. THE RALLY'S COME WITH THE REDLINE BIAS PLY TIRES. SO YOU CAN SWAP THEM TO SUIT THE TYPE OF SHOW YOU ARE GOING TO.
I OWN A BEAUTIFUL 1972 C3 AND LOVE DRIVING IT. THIS ONE HAS BEEN DRIVEN ABOUT 500 MILES THIS YEAR.
PLEASE DO DRIVE THIS L71 WHEN THE WEATHER IS NICE. IT IS GOOD FOR THE CAR AND A FUN TRIP BACK TO THE USA IN 1968.


THIS RARE FACTORY MUSCLE CORVETTE IS READY TO SHOW AND GO!  ARE YOU?

SHOW IT - DRIVE IT - LOVE IT!   :-)
