1968 Chevrolet Corvette
1968 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe
A small highly maneuverable warship that typically escorted larger armed fleets is the origin of the name Corvette. At this point, the third generation Corvette accounts for the middle section of the brand's story and, looking back, it's a remarkably appropriate car to hold that place. With visible nods to both Chevrolet's heritage and future, I give you this Stingray
Offered for sale is an original low mileage (54,500) chrome bumper 1968 Corvette Stingray which has undergone a complete on frame restoration. According to the owner, the car is a matching numbers example powered by a 327ci V8.
Rally Red in excellent condition covers this straight paneled consistent gap car. A T-top with the factory original vinyl pouches comes with the car. Also seen are re-chromed factory fitted side pipes, and 8-inch stock Corvette wheels wrapped with red stripe radials. Consigner states that this was a frame that was free of any accident damage, and the underside shows the meticulous attention to detail during the restoration.
Completely new red vinyl seating with its true to Corvette form chrome accents shows well under the T-top. The Corvette retains its original and working AM/FM factory stereo with original dash and console which includes the original 1968 fiber optic light monitors. This 3 owner Vette has fully functional gauges, hidden headlamps and wipers. It is a non-powered steering and brake car.
The 327ci 300 hp Holley 650 cfm carbureted engine and 4-speed Muncie transmission will afford you to reach warp speed very quickly. To bring you to a halt, new stainless brake calibers, disc brake rotors, pads and brake lines were added. A new steel fuel line connects the new steel fuel tank. As previously noted, the frame is free of accident damage.
Recently the car was dyno-tuned for peak performance with oil pressure between 55-60 lbs. The car presents itself as a high-quality driver and priced reasonably given the restoration, extensive documentation, and originality.
