1968 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible
Why This Car Is Special
1968 is the first year for the very popular C3 platform that ran through 1982. Some of the most iconic Corvettes of all time are C3s. The 427 cars, the 1978 Pace Car and Silver Anniversary and more.
The numbers matching 327 300 hp CID V8 engine rests under the hood with an HEI ignition and a great sounding dual exhaust system. The transmission is a stout Turbo 400 automatic shifted from the center console. Power steering and power disc brakes help this Vette steer and stop like a sports car should. Power windows are a nice feature and they also work well. These Corvettes are smooth riding and put the power to the ground with an inverse leaf spring independent rear suspension. The 68 model has vacuum operated flip up headlights and a vacuum operated windshield wiper cowl.
A nice custom touch, the Corvette emblem has been added to the backs of the seats in this convertible. A black soft top can be put up in place of the removeable hard top, or drop the top and cruise with the windows down. A new radio powers a set of speakers in a box behind the seats for a great sound to your favorite songs. Plenty of gauges are present above the steering wheel and in the center console to monitor every aspect of the engine, and indicator lights let you know if your tail lamps are lit. Storage behind the seats is easily accessed and is surprisingly roomy.
Beautiful Red paint really pops against the chrome accents and rally wheels. The removeable hardtop is painted to match and is in great shape. Rally wheels with new radial tires provide a classic and clean look. Too much red? Put up the soft top to break it up with some black. The curves on C3 Corvettes are very feminine and voluptuous. It's no wonder guys can't stop staring at a 68 Corvette! The working flip up headlights add to the sports car appeal and the dual chrome exhaust tips exiting the rear look and sound great. Less than half of all Corvette convertible received an auxiliary hardtop in 1968 and a lot of those have lost their soft tops through the years. This is a very cool find with both tops.
