Description for Chevrolet Corvette 1968

This is an overall original unrestored car with a high quality repaint in the original color in the 90s. It was recognized very early on as a special corvette and maintained in an absolute beautiful cosmetic and mechanical condition. Most recently in August 2018 all fluids were drained, carbs rebuilt, fresh tune up, with the engine dialed in on a dynamometer all by a very experienced racing engine specialist. The car starts quickly, drives, handles, and stops beautifully as it should. The car has 89K original miles.

This is an unmolested factory delivered Aluminum Head 427CI 435hp (1 of 634), Tri-power, Close Ratio 4- Speed, 3:70 Rear Posi car. This is NOT a “period correct” drive train, a “CE block” replacement, or a "restoration" from the dead. This is simply an original beautifully maintained born with numbers matching no hit L89.

Undeniable traceability authenticates this historically significant Corvette, including but not limited to:

- Original Purchase Order. The car was delivered by Clippinger Chevrolet in California and sold by the legendary Bloomington Gold Great Hall of famer Bob Wingate (Really) (greathallpeople.html). Bob was named by Chevrolet in 1970 as “Corvette’s #1 Salesman”. At the time, he was a Club Organizer, Promoter and Racer. Bob was instrumental in the development of the famous James Gardner L88 Racing Team that ran in the 1968 Daytona 24 hour race (airl88.com)

Need space, price to sell...Pics & YouTube video (YouTube Search > 134474 1968 Chevrolet Sting Ray Corvette) credits courtesy of RK Motors & airl88.com because they take better pics than I do. (I have put 145 miles on the car at the time of this ad). It has been ~ten years since I used ebay to sell a car, but please check out the buyers feedback back then on a ~$80K 66 GTO.
