1968 Chevrolet Corvette
The 1967 Corvette is considered the most-loved Corvette ever produced. The combination of classic C2 styling, along with an incredible array of powertrain and comfort options, makes it one of the most desirable Corvettes ever. Not bad for a car that was never supposed to be made!
The ZR-1's production run from 1990-95 was one of the most exciting times for Corvette enthusiasts in recent memory. In the mid-1980s, rumors of a "King of the Hill" Corvette began to leak out of Detroit and into America's speed shops and dealerships.
Classic Car Overview

Typical for Corvette, the aggressive body work covered the potent engine underneath. The thundering power-plant of this 1968 Corvette Convertible is the legendary L71 427 cubic-inch big block with the ultra-rare L89 option that added aluminum cylinder heads. Only 624 L89 Corvettes were ever produced making this one of the most sought after C3s’ made. Mated to the close-ratio 4-speed manual and posi-traction rear axle this Corvette is all about performance. It's hard not to stare at the striking Lemans Blue paint or equally stunning bright blue interior – all in exceptional condition.
