Chevrolet Corvette 1968 Description

This 1968 Chevrolet Corvette convertible offers the best of everything. It has a fantastic red appearance, gives the full control of a close-ratio stick shift, and has received all the right investments to keep it a head-turner. And not only have you been upgraded to a performance 350 V8, but also the original 327 comes with the sale, too. Red Corvettes are so iconic that they write songs about them. And this car truly knows how to inspire a tune. That's because there has been an investment to give this classic color a modern shine. That means sunlight rolls off the shark-like nose and tall fenders so evenly that you can't help but attract attention. There will always be desire of a droptop like this, because 1968 was the first year for this generation. And the early C3 cars are the ones to own because of all the great brightwork. That means nicely integrated chrome bumpers, bright rocker panes, and plenty of trim. And just so that this one can hint at its upgraded nature, a set of iconic American Racing Torq Thrust wheels were added.Beneath the black folding roof is a black bucket seat interior. We always love the look of black against the red in high-performance machines, and you can tell this one has been given the right investments to retain a deep, dark appearance. The rich darkness of the panels and carpeting allow the silver accents to pop on everything from three-spoke steering wheel, to the original-style AM/FM radio. For the driver, the dual pod speedometer/tachometer is in front of you with a full gauge package prominently to the side. While we all love stick shifts, your right hand is in for a real treat because that's a Hurst unit under the stock topper ball. It's the ideal vehicle to let the top down and enjoy the backroads. But if you really don't like getting your hair blown around, the floor has been sealed in Dynamat insulation. So even when the top is up, the weather will always be great inside.This is a car that's made to display everywhere, so even the engine bay doesn't disappoint. Lift the hood to see a nicely detailed package with plenty of shine. The polished valve covers, air topper, and intake all mean you'll lover showing this one off. And more than just a display piece, you have been upgraded to 350 cubic-inch V8 that features a mild cam, HEI ignition, and Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor. Best of all, you have complete control over the upgraded motor and its thunderous dual exhaust soundtrack thanks to the close-ratio Muncie M21 four-speed transmission. This car was made for taking the long way home, and that's why it has a Positraction rear end with a versatile 3.36 ratio. Plus, components like the fully independent sports suspension and four-wheel disc brakes prove that this Corvette is a great all-around driving classic.All red Corvettes are fun for the road, and this one has been enhanced to be at its best (but purists should also not forget the original 327 V8 comes with the sale, too.) But you're not the only one who wants to sing a tune with this turn-key ready red Corvette. So don't miss out, call today!
