1968 Chevrolet Corvette
Car for sale by Cars Remember When in Englewood, Colorado 80110
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.

Alan Shepard acquired this car from Jim Rathmann Chevrolet in Melbourne, Florida as part of the Astronaut Courtesy Car Program in late 1967. Alan got to lease this car for one year for the cost of $1. He custom ordered it with the highest horsepower option available- the 427/435hp L89 with tri-power & aluminum heads. Only 624 Corvettes were produced in 1968 with this engine. The current L89 engine in the car is a dealer warranty replacement that was installed in the first year of ownership. The old rumors of Astronauts racing their Corvettes could be true as Alan certainly blew up his original engine.
This car is mostly original and unrestored. The interior is ruff, the body is in decent shape and the undercarriage is unrestored. The engine runs and the brakes work well. We are advertising this as an unrestored car/astronaut memorabilia piece. Imagine if this car was restored to its formal glory what kind of attention it would get! This car has extensive documentation (see end of photo gallery) and detailed verification articles written about it which can be viewed on our website.
