The Most Desirable Corvette Ever?

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

Great original colors, a numbers-matching 427 cubic inch V8 with Tri-Power, and a numbers-matching Muncie 4-speed, is there anything else you could want in a Corvette? Oh, and it was also restored to an insanely high, museum quality level literally, as this 1968 Chevrolet Corvette 427 was in fact showcased in a museum. Chrome bumper Corvettes simply dont get better than this, and the experts at NCRS agreed when they certified it after it was restored. If youve been looking for the best of the best, then your search is over. Speaking of NCRS, the individual that wrote the official book on NCRS judging was the same person that restored this car to be a Top Flight Award winner. Let that sink in for a second, the person that put together the guidelines followed by the preeminent Corvette experts in the world is the person responsible for this Corvette. I mentioned this was the best of the best, didnt I? Repainted back to the rare and correct Corvette Bronze finish it was born with, this early C3 looks fantastic today. Well call it a 9.5, simply because nothing in this world is perfect, but please understand that this is a museum quality finish on a laser-straight body that is so correct that the painter actually dulled the door jambs to ensure they were EXACTLY like the factory made them in 1968. This rare color combination will never go out of style and unlike so many other cars from the late 60s, it doesnt have a dated look. Instead, the deep shine accentuates the all-new C3 look, which is particularly appealing with the big block hood and top that goes down. For many, the early chrome bumper cars are the ones to own, and the bright stuff on this car is a close to perfectly finished as you can get, and all of it is original to the car. The result of all that pain-staking, open-checkbook work is a show-stopping Corvette thats the best youll ever see. The beautiful Tobacco interior is also how this car was originally specd, and as you probably expect by now, its all incredibly impressive. The low-back buckets look inviting and the vinyl used is high OEM quality; good enough that you wont be wishing for leather. Plush carpets, crisply rendered door panels, and a contrasting-colored dash and center console all show extremely well. Corvette designers did a great job with the early C3s and the level of detailing, right down to the color-matched horn button, is a big part of the appeal. The original AM/FM radio is still in place, although all we could catch is static, but thats okay because the only music that matters in this car is the symphony bellowing from under the hood. It also includes the fiber-optic lamp monitoring system and the all-important 4-speed shifter, because, after all, who wants a 427 that you can rip through the gears yourself? You get both a soft top and a hard top with this 68, and as you might expect, theyre both in great shape and have never seen anything other than sunshine. Under that iconic hood is the cars original L71 427 cubic inch V8, and its curious how Chevrolet offered a handful of different 427s, including two with Tri-Power induction like this one. Its actually street-friendly with great throttle response and bottomless reserves of torque, which is why you buy a 427 in the first place. The engine bay is nicely dressed with a correct triangular air cleaner and chrome valve covers over a Chevy Orange engine block. As you might expect, it runs superbly, particularly with well-tuned carbs and a responsive distributor, and everything is stock right down to the exhaust manifolds. The Muncie M21 4-speed manual gearbox and rear end are also original, numbers-matching pieces, and as long as youre looking around under there, please note that the true-dual exhaust system is brand new, the power steering system works well, and theres barely any evidence that this car has ever been outside of a trailer. Finishing off the correct look is a set of Rally wheels with F70-15 white-wall tires all around. To further add to the lore of this car, it is still owned by the person that bought it new. Yup, he tracked it down and went on to spend over $88k to bring it to the level you see before you. Documented with lots of original documentation including a factory build sheet, tank sticker, title records, and original manuals, along with NCRS guide books, a huge binder of receipts, and CDs with tons of build pictures, this is a top-of-the-line big block Vette with so much to offer.
