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 Hallowed Halls here at Classic Auto Mall. It stands out as something with some slight customization from the original look of 1968 but still keeps the timeless Stingray lines and iconic styling cues. Exposed but sunken in headlights, a custom grille, wide fender flares and black rockers just adds to the exterior Corvette mystique. With a title verified 47K original miles on the body and it's a convertible, what more could you want? Oh wait, I know...our consignor is including a new full weatherstripping kit to keep you leak free and whisper quiet in the cockpit.

A respray in Mist Blue takes over for the once British Green body and shows very nicely with no checks or heavy inclusions, just smooth deep blue paint and some very light cracking in a few areas of the fender flares that one must lookhard to spot. The sculpted body is highlighted on the front quarters by shark-like gill venting with some chrome accenting and the slightly larger than stock flares added to the front quarter panels. Up front a custom header panel leads the way with sunken and exposed dual headlights with a horizontal barred chrome grille within a large cutout just below. Leading back to the heavily raked stainless dressed windshield is a turbo style reverse scooped and louvered hood for some extra pizazz. A black rocker cover with a strip of stainless accenting above is reserved for the rockers. On the back, flared extra curvaceous rear quarters, think40's pin up girl curves, frame the deep dish 15-inch polished aluminum slot wheels that are wrapped in staggered width raised white letterBF Goodrich TA radials from 2020. The rear has a split chromed bumper, half round cut outs in the rear valance for the tail pipes, and 4 round pristine tail lights. Note the new black cloth Stayfast convertible top and frame in fine shape with a clear plastic rear window covering the passenger compartment. The look and stance of this year is quickly becoming one of my favs, along with the rounded look of the 76-77 versions.

All black 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 vinyl drivers chair, however overall it presents in very good condition. The 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 aftermarket 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 supporting gauges in the center keep you up to date of the car's vitals. We note the factory AM/FM radio in at the bottom of the center dash with a five-some of round gauges above and the exterior lighting fiber optic display below.

A non-original circa 1974 350ci V8 mill is backed by a rebuilt 4-speed Muncie manual transmission circa 1967 with a new clutch residing in an overall clean but patinaed engine bay. Chrome is on for the dress up of the valve covers and air cleaner assembly and feeding this mill the proper mixture of air and fossils is a new Holley 4-barrel carburetor mounted atop a Weiand aluminum intake. The rear axle weighs in at 3.70 and Positraction with an AO stamping code cluing us in to the fact this 'Vette may have been born a 327ci 350hp car. Our consignor notes that a new radiator and heater core were recently installed.

A gander underside reveals newly redone 4-wheel disc brakes with stainless lines and new pads, rotors, and calipers. A good condition but patinaed frame and floor construction as well as a clean suspension is also here to greet us. 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. Dual exhaust with headers and stock style mufflers is nice, clean and carries only surface rust on some of the piping. As an extra bonus our consignor has installed a new fuel tank to keep things running well.

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 350 cuber, bias free braking and great handling all wrapped up in a fun in the sun fully functional package.

Just a very nice looking, slightly custom, 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....!
