NUMBERS-MATCHING 427/435HP, 4-SPD, CORRECT COLORS, VERY NICE CAR, INVESTMENT!
Bold factory color, numbers-matching L71 427/435HP cubic inch V8, and a four-speed... that's why we all love this first-year Stingray. This 1968 Chevrolet Corvette gets all the important stuff right and it's ready to rock without a second thought. Get in and drive!
Safari Yellow is a great color to have on a big block 'Vette. Not only does this factory-correct hue manage to grab attention without being vulgar, but even the name suggests you're out to hunt down lesser cars. This one has bee exceptionally well cared for over the years, and so the yellow has a nice luster that accentuates the new-for-'68 Stingray look, which is particularly appealing with the big block hood. For many, the early chrome bumper cars are the ones to own, and the brightwork is nicely finished – we suspect much of it is new. Top it off with a correct rally wheel package on Goodyear bias-ply tires, and this is the kind of car that will grab attention in even the most finicky Corvette crowds.
Just in case this car's down-to-business attitude wasn't already apparent, the factory-correct black vinyl interior will drive that point home. The low-back buckets look inviting and the material is high quality. The carpets are plush, the door panels are new, and the dash is complete – so this is a well-sorted sports car. The interior is not a complete midnight experience with the shine of the three-spoke wheel and the gearshift. The driver gets the original gauge package with the large speedo and tach straight ahead. In the center is a full auxiliary readout package, heat/defrost controls, and just below that is the original AM/FM radio. But one of the best parts of this coupe are the T-tops that easily remove so you can share this highly original interior with the world.
Under the hood is the car's original L71 427 cubic inch V8. Yes, this a numbers-matching big block, but it's also a true tri-power monster with the correct "IR" suffix code on the block. The engine bay is nicely dressed with a correct triangular air cleaner and chrome valve covers over a Chevy orange engine block. It looks fantastic, fires up straight away, and the dual exhaust lets loose a ferocious roar. The perfect paring to this is the four-speed manual gearbox that allows you to take full advantage of the massive torque produced by the motor. But even as this is meant to be the ultimate performance street machine, it also has nice driving features such as power steering and four-wheel disc brakes.
This is the kind of fast, original, and factory-correct Corvette that will be the star of any show you choose. It's a cut-above classic that is a rare find. Call today!!!
