With its strong numbers-matching big block V8 and awesome blue-on-blue factory style, this 1968 Chevrolet Corvette L68 Convertible nails its appeal in the fundamentals alone. And so when you see there has been a solid investment in keeping everything looking sharp and giving you the features you want (like A/C), it soon becomes very clean just how awesome this total package really is.
<br><br> The code 976 LeMans Blue is the factory-correct color. You'll say that race-inspired name with a little smile on your face, because you know this is a powerful big block machine. But more than just the right name, the color benefits from a more modern respray. So it has a beautiful luster that just loves to radiate in the sunshine. And as you keep digging into this drop-top Corvette, you'll realize it really was built for sunny day cruising. The panels have the fit of good care and investment right down to the smooth headlight flaps and the doors you can shut with authority. So this really has the look of quality. Plus, it has all the details you'll love, like the big block hood, shining shark-like nose, two-piece rear bumper, and classic redline tires that hide a more modern tread.
<br><br> The convertible top has a quality fit, and bright white against the radiating blue is like the crest of a tropical ocean wave. But as appealing at this is, the car looks even better with the top down. The factory-correct bright blue interior harmonizes with the exterior color for a European-like level of sophistication. Of course, part of the reason why this impresses so much is because there was a proper restoration investment getting it looking this good. Bucket seats, a thin/grippy steering wheel, and full gauges make a great driver's environment. There are nice details on the classic features, like the soft padding on the center armrest and the working fiber optics. Plus, there are well-integrated upgrades. The retro-style AM/FM digital tuner with aux input means the best in driving music. And top-down fun is always better when you also have cold-bowing R134a air conditioning.
<br><br> This is the numbers-matching L68 block. That's originally a Tri-Power motor, and it puts this car in exclusive company with less than 2k version made in the C3's inaugural year. It has all the right pieces you love, like a bold block in a tidy engine bay, bright valve covers with the Tonawanda decal, and a performance Winters intake. It is currently topped with a Rochester Quadrajet four-barrel carburetor. That's part of a strong-running package for more everyday appeal. It's the kind of setup where you can really drive all day (the consignor drove over two hours to our showroom without a second thought.) The big block V8 is connected to the stout and smooth number-matching TH400 three-speed automatic transmission. Power steering, the fully independent suspension, and four-wheel power disc brakes finish off this all-round good driving package.
<br><br> This is the big block classic that has stunning style, great features, desirable history, and all the right investments. The only thing missing in this complete package is you. Call today!!!
