49,552 ACT'L MILES, #'S MATCHING 427/390HP V8, 4SPD TRANS, PWR BRAKES, SHARP CAR

A numbers-matching 427 big block with four-on-the-floor and factory-correct British Green paint... oh yeah, this 1968 Chevrolet Corvette is everything you want in a fast and distinguished vintage 'Vette. And it even includes a great story.

British Green is a great color to have on a big block 'Vette. It has the mean attitude similar to black but with added sophistication. And since 1968 was the debut for the iconic C3 it's extra-special to have this single-year color. So there is cool rarity here before you even dig into its history. This car is coming off of nearly 50 years of long-term ownership, so it has been cared for by the same owner for nearly all its life. Along the way there have been restoration investments. For example, the special paint was given a quality respray in 2015, which means it retains an extra hint of luster today. It gives distinction to the crisp lines of the big block hood, flared fenders, and the well-integrated spoiler. The early C3s are known for their nice brightwork package on the shark-like front end, rocker trim, and two-piece rear bumper. Top it off with a correct Rally wheel package on cool redline tires, and this is the kind of car that will ... Please ask for the full description.

49,552 ACT'L MILES, #'S MATCHING 427/390HP V8, 4SPD TRANS, PWR BRAKES, SHARP CAR

This car is coming off of nearly 50 years of long-term ownership, so it has been cared for by the same owner for nearly all its life. Along the way there have been restoration investments. For example, the special paint was given a quality respray in 2015, which means it retains an extra hint of luster today.

The early C3s are known for their nice brightwork package on the shark-like front end, rocker trim, and two-piece rear bumper. Top it off with a correct Rally wheel package on cool redline tires, and this is the kind of car that will grab attention from both casual fans and Corvette lovers.

The black interior looks great against the green exterior. Not only was this one born this way, but also this low mileage classic has a well-preserved look. Since this is from the era of the removable rear window, you can take it out with the T-tops to have a true open-air experience. The C3 Corvette is a driver's car with an upgraded sports steering wheel. You have the large dual speedo and tach package right in front of you, and there's a full set of gauges to the side. But we know what really grabbed all your attention... the bright chrome shifter seizes your focus like a beacon begging you to get in and start this one up.

When you twist the key, the symphony begins. There's just no mistaking the big power and big rumble from a big block that's serenading through a dual exhaust. With 390 advertised horsepower, this numbers-matching L36 427 cubic-inch V8 is a true legend forged in steel. If you can get off the road long enough to show off this motor, you'll be rewarded with a very nice engine bay that has the correct Chevy orange block, bright valve covers, and bright air topper that proudly advertises the big power setup. Once you're back on the road, you'll love taking full control of the monster motor with the four-speed manual transmission. It feeds a proper Positraction rear end. Because the C3 was one of the best sports cars of its day, the fully independent suspension and four-wheel power disc brakes mean this monster 'Vette is easy to tame.

The sale comes complete with the maintenance records. Low ownership and low mileage classics this nice don't come along too often or stay too long. Call now!
