4610 Pet Lane
The appeal of this 1968 Chevrolet Corvette is as clear as black and white, literally. After all, it's a first-year C3 with upgraded V8 power, side pipes, and a quality presentation inside and out. And it's all available right now for an obtainable price.
The bright white paint gives this instant appeal. After all, it radiates in the sunshine as it shows off the long hood, sculpted fenders, and the flying buttress rear of the first-year C3 Corvette. The appeal here is more than just the right color. These early C3s have nice brightwork on the shark-like nose, hallmark Rally wheels, and the cool two-piece rear bumper. And while the fenders correctly do not have the Stingray script, this one gives it a proper designation on the cover for the side pipes that command our attention.
Black interiors always look terrific against a white exterior. The door panels and bucket seats even look quite nice from a later investment. The wood-rimmed sports steering wheel, large speedo and tach, and full auxiliary gauge panel at eye-level make this a great driver's machine. There's even an upgraded AM/FM cassette stereo w/digital tuner for better driving tunes. Another great part about the early C3s is that you have the removable rear window. When combined with the T-tops you get a convertible-like breeze through the car without giving up your coupe-like rigidity. There are even provisions for R134a air conditioning if you want to enjoy this experience in the summertime.
Under the hood is a year-correct 327 cubic-inch V8, and it's even topped with a correct Quadrajet four-barrel carburetor. But while this has a cool and classic look, right down to the distributor shield, there's also been some nice improvements. Items like the HEI distributor and the aluminum radiator show investment to keep this classic running well in modern times. Plus, the Hooker headers add power while feeding the ferocious growl of those side pipes. And a car like this is easy to enjoy everywhere thanks easy driving features like power steering and a three-speed automatic transmission. Plus, few '60s sports cars can match the Corvette's superior handling package that includes a fully independent suspension, Positraction rear end, and four-wheel disc brakes.
Complete with the owner's manual, you're looking at a first-year C3 with a ton of appeal offered for a value price. It's an irresistible deal, and so you need to call today!
