For 1968, the Chevelle got an all-new distinctly sculpted body with tapered front fenders and a rounded beltline. The car adopted a long-hood/short-deck profile with a high rear-quarter "kick-up" and hardtop coupes featured a semi-fastback, flowing roofline. The '68's also rode a new sportier 112-inch wheelbase and tire tread width grew an inch front and rear. Top-trim models (including the SS 396 and new luxury Concours) featured GM's new Hide-A-Way wiper system and the Super Sport became a series on its own. Additionally, manual transmission cars got GM's "Air Injection Reactor" (A.I.R.) smog pump.
GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this '68 Chevelle Convertible for your consideration. This tribute car is badged as a “Yenko” car, which was a dealership in Pennsylvania that specialized in customizing muscle cars in the late 60's and they are among the most collectable cars to this day. The Chevelle is powered by a 454 v8 paired with an automatic transmission. Highlights include orange hounds tooth interior with front bucket seats, Edelbrock Performer aluminum intake, Holley 4 barrel carburetor, power brakes, power steering, vintage Kraco AM/FM/cassette player and Equus aftermarket gauges. The white vinyl power top goes up and down as it should. The healthy 454 roars to life and performs well. The paint remains in good condition and shows well.
