Description of 1968 Chevrolet Corvette L36 427/390HP 4SPD NUMBERS MATCHING

I'm selling my 1968 Chevrolet Corvette convertible. It has the factory numbers matching L36 427ci 390hp V-8 engine with a 4 speed manual transmission. This Corvette starts, runs, and stops great. It has current Illinois registration and a clean and clear Illinois title in my name. You can drive this car home!

The Corvette has only 91,455 original miles and is an original factory red car. It was repainted once and the paint is in great condition with a nice shine. There are some minor flaws in the paint, and some minor paint cracks in the body here and there, but overall the car looks great and has very good body lines. The previous owner had the front bumper replaced, and added the HEI ignition and a 3" exhaust. A big block sounds amazing through a 3" exhaust!

The 427ci V-8 is the numbers matching block that the car left the factory with. It runs very well, and does not smoke, burn oil, or knock. The motor has excellent oil pressure. It pulls strong and has great power. It starts easily and idles very smoothly at around 950rpm.

The interior is in great shape with some overall patina and wear. It seems like most of it is original to the car. The frame, especially the area around the rear frame kickups, is very solid and there is evidence of accident damage to the frame. There are no visible rust holes in the frame

The car starts, stops, rides, and steers great. The soft top is in great condition with no rips or tears. Also included with the car is the original factory hard top.

Known problems: The wiper motor doesn't work. I do have a brand new one that I will include with the car. Occasionally the rear brake lights don't work. The radio is not currently working. Other than those things, everything else works.

You are welcome to inspect the car. It's a very nice car that is not perfect, but will make an excellent driver. Buyer is responsible for all shipping costs. The car is located in zip code 60091 in Illinois.

You are buying the car as-is with no warranty expressed or implied. It's a 52 year old car, and it's not perfect, so please bid responsibly!

A non-refundable deposit of $500 is due within 48 hours of auction end. The balance is due within 7 days of auction end. I can store the car at not cost for up to thirty days after auction end.
