1968 Chevrolet CorvetteWheeler Dealers Restored 1968 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible C3
This car was restored on the TV show Wheeler Dealers, Mike Brewer & Edd China as Presenters, June 29th Episode.
327 Cubic Inch 350 Horse Power Engine Block Number: 3903352
4 Speed Muncie M21 Transmission Number: 392566
Posi Traction Rear Axle
Showing 95,000 Miles Verifying mileage on older cars is next to impossible. Looking at the underside of this car 95,000 is possible.
Here is what I know and was told that has been done to the car:
The Engine has been gone through, all new seals and gaskets, no leaks and no smoke. I had a compression test done and it was high and consistent on all 8 cylinders.
A High Energy Electronic Ignition has been installed in the original distributor, Better performance, drive-ability, emissions and MPG's, New Water Pump, Fuel Pump and Thermostat. New Plug Wires and Spark Plugs. All New Filters.
There is a 2.5" Stainless Steel Manifold back Exhaust System with a Crossover Pipe and Magnaflow Mufflers. It sounds awesome without being annoying.
The Cooling System is upgraded with an High Performance Radiator and 2 Electric Cooling Fans, I drove it for 2 hours on a 100 degree day and it was cool as a cucumber.
The Holley Carburetor was just Rebuilt. New Battery. All new fuel lines (no problem with ethanol) all new Brake Lines. Many new suspension pieces.
The 4 speed M21 Muncie Transmission has a New Clutch, Pressure Plate and Throw-out Bearing.
All 4 Original Calipers have been Rebuilt with new high performance Pads and Rotors.
A Tilt Steering Column was added which apparently was not available as an option in 1968, A Reproduction Steering Wheel was added but I have the Original Wood Wheel which will be included with the car.
The Rally Rims look like new. Brand New Tires.
The interior looks new. All of the gauges work, even the clock.
There are New Vacuum Servos for the Headlights and Windshield Wiper Cowling.
It has a New Convertible Top along with a New Rear Window.
It comes with the FACTORY HARDTOP!
The paint is showroom shiny and is in pretty good condition.
If you want a driver, not a trailer queen, this is a good one. I would think you could put 100k miles on this car without replacing anything major.
I have a BMW 335i twin turbo putting out 300hp at the rear wheels and as soon as I got the Corvette home I raced the BMW. The Corvette was faster.

Will cooperate on anyone wanting to buy the car and have it shipped, you set up all shipping arrangements and I will deliver the car to your shipper upon receipt and verification of funds.
In 2 more years this car will be 50 years old and prices will skyrocket like the C2's. An investment in a restored 1968 Corvette will out perform an overpriced stock market or real estate.
Plus the cache of a famous TV Show doing the restoration work on this car should add even more value. This is one well sorted Corvette. Looks new drives better than new.
