Description:

1968 Chevrolet Corvette

Offered is my 1968 Corvette convertible with numbers matching 427/390, 4 speed

I bought this car to restore back to the original British racing green. I bought it driving and running as you can see in the pictures. The 427 engine has been rebuilt and it runs great. As you can also see in the set of pictures, I have stripped the car down to restore it, but due to time restraints and a major move from Houston to the St. Louis area, I just do not have the time. I bought the car in Texas around 3 years ago.

The car was born British racing green and has had no modifications

All the chrome removed has been re-chromed that needed it.

Dash is on perfect shape

The car was totally complete and drivable before we started to take it apart to paint and restore. Any hardware or parts that needed ordering were ordered new from Corvette America and come with the car. Whatever was not ordered and can be re-used is competently labeled for easy locating and come with car. The only thing we did not order was the convertible top. The entire frame for the top is complete.

The car is in excellent condition as far as steering, brakes, transmission, engine, suspension and every other mechanical aspect. Like I stated, I was driving it before we started the work as you can see in the pictures.

This vette was originally manufactured as a basic 427/390 convertible with no air and as a manual and no power steering. It is one of those that you have to drive as opposed to all the power add ons. Very fast!!

We have already stripped down the door jams, hinge pillars and the inner convertible top lid as seen in the images.

The body is ready to start preparing for paint. There is no major body work to do.

I have spent over $6000.00 in new parts mostly at Corvette America

This vette has the hard top which comes with the car. It is black. All the white spots in the picture is compound that flew on it and I never cleaned it off

The previous owner had purchased a new complete A/C system with the correct pulley, but I wanted to keep the car original and was not going to install it, but the entire system comes with this deal. I have put a couple pictures of the system, but there is much more that is not pictured that comes with the A/C which is your option to use.

If you would like to see more pictures I would be glad to get them for you. I have all the receipts for the parts we purchased.

This vette can easily be worked, painted and reassembled and be made a beautiful high dollar 427/390 big block convertible corvette. The mechanical and undercarriage is completed. The gas tank has not been put in yet. The water pump and hoses were taken off when we replaced the from cross member.

Unfortunately we had to buy a new numbered windshield (Which is boxed and comes with the car) because we cracked the original accidently. We also bent the windshield top trim molding and it will have to be re-done.

I am starting the bidding at my low price, as I am losing money at that. Any first bid or bids thereafter will buy the car with no reserve. Until the first bid, I reserve the right to end the auction at any time as the car is for sale in other mediums.

All parts purchased are still new in the original boxes.

I have tried to represent this vette as best as possible. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions and I try and get them answered.
