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!

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 1968 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible is all about classic style, but with subtle upgrades. For example, it was born red, but now its a shade brighter. And while you have the numbers-matching V8, it has been upgraded for more power. So its a desirable total package, especially for this price. The first-year C3 is truly a legend. The long front, short rear, and wave-like profile was so attractive that it became the longest-running Corvette design. And some argue the inaugural year was the purest. It wasnt officially called a Stingray yet, and so the sides have no trim to interrupt the line between flared fenders. The chrome struck just the right tone with the sharply pointed front end and a stylish two-piece rear. The red paint was updated later in life to a lighter shade that radiates more in the sunshine. And today it has the right aged-in look that people may just assume its original. So youre really looking at a sleek and clean all-American presentation. Black always looks good against red, and so you have that kind of desirable color combo no matter if the black folding roof is up or down. There are desirable features like power windows and an upgraded AM/FM/cassette stereo. Plus, this is a factory air conditioning car (it will need components and servicing to restore the function.) Bucket seats mean individual comfort for you and your passenger. And as a true Corvette, this is a driver-oriented machine. This means an upgraded sports steering wheel with a large speedo and tach just ahead of that. And the auxiliary readouts dominate the center of the dash so you can keep an easy eye on whats going on under the hood. Under the hood is the numbers-matching 327 cubic-inch V8. Its always extra desirable to have the main pieces original in a Corvette. But since Chevy built these small blocks so robust, we also love unleashing a little extra power. Thats why this one inhales deeper with an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, and it exhales with added power and authority as headers feed the dual exhaust. It fires up readily with the feeling of a well-respected classic (in fact, were told this one is coming off a decade with the same owner.) Out on the road, the numbers-matching TH400 three-speed automatic transmission is a nice pairing for being both stout and smooth. Plus, its an all-around nice driver with features like power steering, four-wheel power disc brakes, and the C3s fully independent suspension. The odometer tells us this one hasnt averaged many miles over the decades, and the way it runs reaffirms the feeling of a careful life. So this is the right-priced classic for your garage. Call now!
