Offered for sale at the St. Louis Car museum is a first year C3 generation Corvette Coupe with rare L68 427ci/400hp Tri-power V8 and automatic transmission! This classic Corvette is loaded with options to include factory air conditioning, leather interior, power brakes, power steering, power windows, telescopic steering column, and more! The vehicle features a beautiful frame off restoration with only 23 miles driven since completion!

Brief History About The C3 Corvette:
Modeled after the Mako Shark show car, the new C3 generation of Corvette was introduced in 1968 with entirely new bodylines! Although not officially re-titled the "Stingray" yet, the C3 generation lasted a lengthy 15 production years with only minor changes to the exterior styling. Today, they are among the most sought after, and affordable classic Corvettes on the market today!

Details About Our Available C3 Corvette Model:
Finished in very desirable British Green (983) over Black Leather interior (402), this number's matching 1968 Corvette Coupe comes loaded with options! Starting with its original L68 427ci Tri-power V8 producing 400 horsepower, along with a, rare first year M40 3-speed Turbo-Hydra-Matic transmission, air conditioning, power steering, power disc brakes, 3.08:1 Posi-Traction rear axle ratio, power windows, original Delco AM/FM push-button radio, 15" wheels with bright metal wheel covers, period correct Firestone Super Sport F70-15 red stripe tires, removable T-top roof panels & rear window, faux wood steering wheel, carpeted floor mats, and original Soft-Ray Astro-Ventilation tinted glass!

Major component numbers are below:
Engine cast number: 3916321 HI-PERF (1968 early cast number)
Engine cast date: A 19 8 (January 19th, 1968)
Engine VIN stamp: 18S411170
Engine date stamp: T0122 IO (January 22nd, 1968- 427ci/400hp with automatic)
Holley carburetion: (F) R3659/3902353. ( C ) R4055-1/3940929, ( R ) R3659/3902353
Transmission stamping: 14S402197 (non-original)
Rear end date code: 1AV 2 7 68 W (3.08:1 Posi-Traction (427), Feb 7th, 1968)

Nearly 28,600 vehicles were produced for this new generation Corvette, but only 9,936 were built in the T-top coupe form making them a little more difficult to find, especially with favorable options and original equipment! This particular example is showing 23 miles since a complete, nut-and-bolt frame-off restoration. The frame remains wonderfully rust free, smooth, and solid and now showcasing all new suspension, braking, exhaust, and fuel system components.

The exterior paint and interior seat upholstery were refinished beautifully and continue to show at a concours level. The engine compartment is highlighted with proper GM hoses & tower style clamps, correct braided spark plug wires, ignition shielding, and more. All of the electrical and vacuum systems are functional including the interior fiber optics, air conditioning (retrofitted to R134a), all interior courtesy lamps, headlight operation, factory radio, clock, dash lights, wipers, horn, etc.

It represents one of only 1,932 L68- 427ci/400 horsepower built for the 1968 model year with performance that continues to impress today. A new battery was installed in late 2020. It will come complete with T-top storage bags, jack, wrench, and matching redline spare tire. It runs terrific without any disappointments!
