427 L71 V8
This 1968 Chevrolet Corvette gets all the important stuff right, including a tri-power big block, four-on-the-floor, and the classic look of a first-year C3 Stingray. So you\'ll instantly fall in love/lust with this sleek and powerful street machine.
The code 976 LeMans Blue is the factory-correct color. You\'ll say that race-inspired name with a little smile on your face, because you know this is a competition-worthy tri-power machine. But more than just the right name, the color benefits from a more modern respray. So it has a nice luster that accentuates the new-for-1968 design, which is particularly appealing with the big block hood. These earlier C3s are also for the brightwork lovers, including the thin bumpers, trim, and rocker panels. Plus, the hallmark Rally wheels with redline tires perfectly tie together a package of vintage, shine, and performance.
The leap to the C3 was about creating an even more driver-focused Corvette. This includes a more comfortable set of bucket seats. You get a grippy wood and chrome steering wheel, and the original gauge package with the large speedo and tach straight ahead. Plus, the C3s were terrific for providing all the info with a full auxiliary readout panel dead center in the car. But what really makes this Stingray terrific is you not only get the T-tops, but also the early ones had the removable rear window. So you get coupe-like construction but a convertible-like experience whenever you want.
Under the hood is 427 cubic-inch V8. This is the kind of legendary big block that makes Corvette fans weak in the knees, and this one is believed to be original to the car. Plus, the triangle air topper is the sign of true performance from the triple set of dual-barrel carbs that gives the mighty tri-power setup. Plus, shining valve covers, matching distributor shield, and a newer aluminum radiator add both style and function. The V8 runs strong, and the dual exhaust lets loose a beastly roar. The perfect paring to this is the four-speed manual transmission that allows you to take full advantage of the massive torque produced by the motor. But more than just pure power, Corvettes are some of the best handling cars of their time thanks to features like the fully independent sports suspension and four-wheel disc brakes.
