$32,900

Vehicle Description

This is a rare one with a rare combination of desirable options! It retains its numbers matching engine. Shows 77,xxx believed original miles on a very original car. Imagine the looks and smiles generated by this totally new body style in the fall of 1967!! It gets even more looks today! Back in it’s day, there was nothing else like it on the road! This example begs to be driven. Very responsive with the optional L79 350 Horsepower 327 and smooth shifting 4 speed manual. It runs cool with no signs of overheating. An aftermarket intake and carb are currently installed, but the original factory intake and Rochester carburetor are included. It has the factory high performance “Double Hump” heads.

Run this convertible through the gears and relive the memories of warm summer nights and burbling exhausts. This car runs and drives very well, and it rides smoother than most early Corvettes, as it has an advanced composite rear spring for improved handling, comfort, and performance. It also has high performance, adjustable rear strut rods, so you can fine tune the rear suspension.

Throttle response is instant due to the 11.0 to 1 compression ratio produced by the optional L79 327/350 motor. The factory instruments and lights function properly. Headlamps raise and lower by vacuum as designed. The folding top is in good condition and has recently been adjusted for better fit with a clear rear window. We just redid the rear wheel bearings, have completed brake work, and completed a recent 4 wheel alignment as well as tune up. This car is essentially ready to go and enjoy!!

Correct, one year only door handles and buttons operate just as the famous Larry Shinoda designed them when he first drew the Mako Shark II that became the 1968 Corvette. The exterior trim and bright work are in good condition. The chrome bumpers are correct and shiny.

The interior is in very nice condition, and we just installed new correct 68 seat covers on new foam. The dash is original and in good condition as well.

The is a rare factory air conditioning equipped, L79 327/350hp, with the 4 speed convertible. This was very rare to have this combination of desirable options in these early “chrome bumper” Corvettes making this car more desirable and collectible as well.

This is your opportunity to own a rare Corvette convertible that you can drive and enjoy while it appreciates! The desire for these cars continues to grow and continues to drive the market value up on them. Hurry and call before this rare and desirable Corvette goes into someone else’s garage or collection. Offered at only $32,900
