1968 Chevrolet Corvette Additional Info:

There's not much better in the world then being behind the wheel of a big block 'Vette. But a complete restoration to everything from the bold red paint to the 420+ hp 427 V8 makes this 1968 Chevrolet Corvette a true dream machine that's available today at a gone-tomorrow price.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 in the 1968-correct Rally Red 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. Even the details received all the right attention the doors shut with confidence; the big block hood has the proper 427 callouts; the body gaps that appear quite even; and the headlight door fit flush. Trim and chrome look good, including the optional luggage rack, and it pairs up well with the clean, 15-inch rally wheels. So the total package is certainly a Stingray that will stand out from the crowd.Inside, the correct saddle tan interior looks great against the red paint. You can instantly tell by the condition of the bucket seats, door panels, carpeting, and dash that there has been a nice investment in keeping this looking its best. Corvettes have always been a great personal sports car by providing a nice mix of performance features and plenty of creature comforts, and this one does it right. You get a three-spoke steering wheel that gives you a commanding view of the large dual pod gauges for the speedo and tach. Just to the side are a full set of auxiliary readouts for all your vital info. Plus, accessories like the AM/FM stereo and clock were rebuilt to look correct while still being useful. But we know your favorite part of this coupe will be lowering the power windows, taking out the T-tops, and removing the rear window so you can hear the big block road while enjoying the backroads.Tilt the hood forward to reveal year-correct 427 cubic inch V8. This big block was part of the full restoration, and so it's ready to be shown off with the polished valve covers, distributor shield, and the air grabber that boldly proclaims its power superiority. And when you look beyond the shine, you will see the substance of a rebuilt V8 that has been upgraded and fortified. This includes a bored .30 kit, a rebuilt JET Performance four-barrel carburetor, and a host of new parts, including timing chain, gaskets, camshaft, lifters, pistons, and so much more. But Corvette fans should take note, because this Stingray was highly original before restoration, many of the original components come with the sale, too. This creates that perfect balance where you get a big V8 that fires-up easily and delivers reliable performance (dynoed at 423hp!) and at the same time, you get to continue its factory history. So it's a classic you can enjoy. And this is only heightened by great anytime driving features like the fully independent sports suspension, power steering, rebuilt TH400 three-speed automatic, and four-wheel disc brakes.Complete with owner's manual, restoration photos, factory buildsheet, and many other original docs - this one has great paperwork, but really, it's stellar presentation and rumbling V8 already sold you. But you're not the only one who wants to sing a tune with this red Corvette. So don't miss out, call today!
