Streetside Classics - Nashville
6000 Reliance Dr
This 1968 Chevrolet Corvette has its numbers-matching V8, a true vintage style, and the kind of value price that's irresistible for a first-year C3 Corvette.
The long hood, sculpted fenders, and the flying buttress rear - the quality of this body on this example really drives home your favorite parts of the C3 coupe. The Polar White is the factory-correct color, and there has been a respray along the way to make sure there's a bright look to this driver-ready style. And speaking of bright, these early third-gen cars were for lovers of brightwork. So it's nice to see they updated the chrome to keep it distinctly shining on the shark-like nose, hallmark Rally wheels, and the cool two-piece rear bumper. So while this one does have a bit of a barn find story, the overall impression is a coupe done with quality.
The tobacco brown interior continues the factory-correct color package. There have been investments in the right places, like the fresh-feeling covers of the bucket seats. But overall, there is a vintage and preserved style. So while fickle buyers may invest in easy-to-source pieces, like a carpeting kit, we already like the classic vibes that come from features like the thin/grippy sports steering wheel and working Delco AM/FM stereo. Power windows, T-tops, and the removable rear window open this one up to the world. And this was even a factory A/C car (it will need components and servicing to return the function.)
Under the hood is the numbers-matching 327 cubic-inch V8, and it's even topped with a correct Quadrajet four-barrel carburetor. It has a stock style like the rest of the car, and you will spot some updates, like newer wiring and a newer master cylinder. A coupe like this was built for good all-around driving, that's why you have easy driving features, like power steering and a three-speed automatic transmission. Plus, few 1960s sports cars can match the Corvette's superior handling package that includes a fully independent suspension and four-wheel power disc brakes.
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!
