Freshly enhanced Big block power, four-on-the-floor, and an eye-catching full blue color combo make this 1968 Chevrolet Corvette attractive. And as you look over the full package, it has the look of good care and the right investments to really let you enjoy a big power version of America's classic sports car.
The code 976 LeMans Blue is the factory-correct color. There was even a professional respray later in life to keep it looking glossy. So the finish shows off the best details .....
like the flying buttress pillars and shapely rounded fenders while also making sure it's easy to take trips near or far without making you nervous about every pebble in the road. It's part of a nice balance where this loves to both have fun and get noticed. The L88 hood gives this a huge power dome that hints of big power underneath. There's an extra distinction from the polished American racing wheels with raised white letter raised tires adding a sportier style. Plus clean glass, flush headlight doors, smooth fenders, and bright chrome bumpers makes for good fundamentals.
The factory-correct bright blue interior harmonizes with the exterior color for a European-like level of sophistication. And it's easy to show off the full color package thanks to the T-tops. The low-back bucket seats, bright shifter, working interior lights, and full gauge package all have an attractive stock style. But you'll also sport the right updates for a better drive, like the grippy sports steering wheel and a retro-style AM/FM digital tune with Bluetooth.
Under the hood is the look of proper big block power. This is a 427 cubic inch V8 motor that has been bored to 433 ci total. It's a fresh motor build completed in Oct 2022, and we have receipts documenting a nearly $5k investment in the motor alone. It includes nice upgrades like an Isky camshaft, hydraulic roller rockers, resurfaced heads, bronze valve guides, an Edelbrock performer intake, and topped with a Holley four-barrel carburetor. And you'll spot good components like an HEI distributor, fresh hoses, and an aluminum radiator with a large electric fan. It fires up eagerly, and there's a sweet rumble from the newer dual exhaust and Magnaflow muffler. The Muncie four-speed manual transmission gives you confident control over this full power package. Plus, four-wheel power disc brakes, power steering, wide Cooper Cobra tires, and the fully independent sports suspension with coilovers in all corners all mean this is a classic that's ready to hit the road.
There's a nice paperwork file that comes with the sale. It includes the original bill of sale, upgrade/build receipts from both the 1970s and 2014, and about $17k worth of fresh investment done within about the last year! It all makes for an awesome big block classic with a terrific driving personality. Call today!!!
