The Most Desirable Corvette Ever?

1995 CORVETTE ZR-1

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

This beautiful 1968 Chevrolet Corvette is what smart Corvette buyers who liked going around corners received when they stepped up and bought an all-new Stingray. With a matching-numbers L79 327, a 4-speed gearbox, the upgraded big block F41 suspension, and a fantastic Corvette Bronze paint job, its an ideal way to own a vintage Corvette without spending a fortune. Youd think that Corvette Bronze would look all wrong on such an American icon as the Corvette, but the truth is that it looks like a million bucks. Code 292 Corvette Bronze is the cars original color, and if Im looking at the figures correctly, it was actually one of 1968s most popular hues. Thanks to careful ownership and signs of maintenance throughout, it looks like a million bucks, perfectly capturing the color and offering an incredibly slick look under the right lights. Whatever the color, the important thing is that the fiberglass underneath is quite well preserved and shows none of the usual cracking or split seams that you find on neglected cars. Its also the kind of car that you wont mind packing up for a week on the road, perhaps heading to one of the great Corvette events that are held all over the country and where driving your car is 90% of the fun. And when you arrive, an early C3 will find a very enthusiastic crowd waiting to have a closer look. Chevrolet called this interior standard but its anything but. One look at the interior will convince you that they didnt cut any corners when they restored this car. Fresh upgraded seat covers replicate the originals and with new foam underneath, theyre firm, comfortable, and elegant. Theres also a fresh set of carpets on the floors and a pair of new door panels to complete the look. A skinny woodgrained steering wheel continues to link the Corvette to its European inspirations and gives it an upscale look inside, and the gauges look as if they may very well be original. 1968 Corvettes debuted the fiber-optic lamp monitoring system in the center console, which is always a cool feature for first-time Corvette owners, and theres a correct AM/FM radio in the dash. And, of course, its hard to resist a Corvette with a shift-it-yourself 4-speed gearbox, especially when its topped by a big chrome shifter knob. A snug-fitting tan convertible top stows easily in just a few seconds, so theres really no excuse not to enjoy your new Vette alfresco. The engine is the original, numbers-matching 350 horsepower L79 327, pampered all its life, so it runs like a small block Chevy fresh off the line. And while the 327 lived in the shadow of the mighty 427, its important to note that this car will idle all day in traffic and not foul its plugs, its considerably easier on gas, and quite honestly, the way this one revs makes it a favorite for those who like to drive. The block wears correct Chevy Orange paint, a stock intake, 4-barrel carb, and a set of rams horn exhaust manifolds feeding a fresh dual exhaust system. The Muncie M21 close-ratio 4-speed snaps off rapid-fire shifts like a bolt-action rifle, and the F41 suspension rides better than youd expect from a car with this ones capabilities. 3.70 gears on a Posi keeps the high-revving L79 in the fat part of its power band, and its got both power steering and power brakes. Classic turbine-style hubcaps on steel wheels are a period-correct look on a Corvette, and these wear period-correct F70-15 bias-plys all around. Documented with things like a factory build sheet, build receipts, and restoration photos, this is a pedigreed 1968 Corvette convertible thats also a blast to drive. Call today!
