#'s matching 427 390 HP 4 speed
Welcome to StreetDreamsTexas as we celebrate our 21st year in the classic and muscle car business. Big block Corvette. Those three words quicken the pulse of most automobile enthusiasts for a reason. During the late 1960's American automobile manufacturers produced a large number of high performance cars that fought for bragging rights at virtually every stop light and drive-in across the country. The guys who didn't like to argue showed up in 427 Corvettes! No car caused more concern for a street racing adversary, and if you've driven one you know why. This beautiful Safari Yellow (984) 1968 Corvette convertible is a fine example for a case study on the joys of big block 'Vettes. Powered by its numbers matching (der. 18S400297, suffix IL, BCN 3916321) 427 ci V8, this blue chip collectible is ready for any adventure. Additional items listed on the copy of the window sticker include the numbers matching wide ratio 4-speed manual transmission (M20), power steering (N40), power 4 wheel disc brakes, AM/FM radio (U69, updated with a modern radio), and a tinted windshield (A02). The original 3.70 Positraction rear axle ratio has been swapped for a more highway-friendly 3.36 Posi (AU). This car runs and drives beautifully, aided in part by the skillfully rebuilt original 427 that the owner reports "now puts out significantly more" than the 390 hp rating. An interesting historical footnote; this car was originally sold by Rodger Penske Chevrolet in Philadelphia, which was the first dealership in the racer/owner/entrepreneur's vast business empire. This is truly a Chevrolet fan's Corvette. Baseball, hot dogs, and apple pie not included!
