1968 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible * BB 427 * 4 Spd * 3x2 * NO RESERVEHi I'm selling a 1968 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Convertible with a Big Block 427 motor and a 4 speed transmission. For starters this car is a beast, with the period correct 427 motor and aluminum heads this car is pushing around 450+ horse power if not more. The motor was built under 3k miles ago at noexpensespared and runs, sound, and looks great. The three two barrel (3x2) carburetors setup is just amazing in every way and looksaggressiveevery timeyou open the hood. The cooling system was upgraded to an all aluminum big blockradiator and all new "GM" hoses. The 4 speed mounted transmission was built at the same time to handle well over 600hp, so it never feelsunder-powered. You can cruise down the highway at a regular pace along with all other cars but, if you were to "step on it" it sucks you right back and leaves all the cars behind as you go through the gears. At the time of the rebuilt headers with side pipes were installed to finish off the car and they sound amazing. Nothing like hearing thepowerful high compression427 running, music to my ears. All the suspension parts, seals, ext, were gone through and were replaced if needed. The rear was lowered about an inch and a half to give it that sleek design feel. The dark greenmetallicpaint shines nicely with normal wear but by no means a show or museum quality butisworth showing off at the local car shows and local cruises like I did. Italsofeatures a Big Block or LT 1 style hood, and a high rev line tach that was only found on big block corvettes. The newlyupholsteredleather seats and new carpetthrough the carwas just finished a few months ago, shows no wear and is inexcellentcondition. All the chrome is in great shape. Recently installed all new brakes, and 4 brand new tires withplentyof thread left for years to enjoy.All the lights, turn signals and gauges work as they should, the headlights go up and work as they should.Underneathis all solid the frame is straight as an arrow and very clean with no signs of rot or repairs. The car was always storedin a climate controlledgaraged and adult driven. It was only enjoyed on sunny days and never seen rain, snow, or salt. The car shows only 47,280 miles on the body and less then 3k on both motor and trans. This isbelievedto be an original Big Block Corvette by some corvette guys at the local car shows. She comes with 2 tops, one hard top that is painted to mach the color of the car, and the other a soft top that is in great shape. This is a perfect example of a great quality classic chrome bumper Stingray Corvette that is only going up in demand with the most desired motor and trans setup. UnfortunatelyIhaven'thad the time to enjoy the car as much as I would hope lately do to busy work schedule, and life getting in the way, so time has come to part with this iconic and popular desirabletruemuscle car.
This classic Stingray Corvette is a perfect reminder of what a true muscle car should be. You want a great corvette with a healthy and the most desirable big block motor and a 4 speed to back it up, this is it. Take it to local car shows, enjoy it, this is one Vette that will always put a smile on your face and thumbs up from everyone every timeyou drive it.This is a NO RESERVE auction, the car will be sold to the highest bidder. It is sold as-is. Feel free to message me with offers, questions or to see the car in person. The car is also selling locally and I reserve the right to end the auction early.
Good Luck !!!
