  • The new for 1968 Chevrolet Corvette was announced as a special kind of automobile that comes along about once every generation to totally arrest the imagination of car enthusiasts. For 1968, the mechanics of the Sting Ray were improved and refined, but the most noticeable aspect was the inspiring new design. The coupe design was lauded for its uncommon removable roof sections over the pilot and the navigator for open air, enhanced by the rear cockpit glass also being removable to create a unique effect that was a first for an American production sports car. Its long, low profile features a blunt rear end design in the continental GT tradition, with an integral rear spoiler providing a striking aerodynamic design.

    The magnificent 1968 Chevrolet Corvette L71 427/435HP Coupe featured here is finished in rare and extremely desirable Tuxedo Black over a dark orange interior. This incredible motorcar was subject to a 700-hour body-off restoration and upon completion was judged and received the coveted top-flight certification. This factory Tuxedo Black over orange interior L71 Corvette is the only known example ever being built. Along with its incredible documentation, certifications, and numbers matching engine and transmission numbers, make this the perfect example to add to any premier collection. I personally believe the investment potential of this stunning 1968 Chevrolet Corvette L71 427/435HP Coupe will grow beyond your imagination. Offered to the most sophisticated investor, collector, or enthusiast who demands the absolute best!!

    Financing

    Finance rates as low as 5.9%.


    We know that classic car financing can pose a unique challenge. Although a vintage or exotic car can be an excellent investment, some financial institutions attempt to apply standard “used car” rules for financing a classic car, which in many cases can make loan approval difficult.


    We work closely with many banking institutions that understand and recognize the collector value of classic cars and view them as an investment, which allows us to help you get the financing you need so that you can have the car you have dreamed of.


    Terms available up to 144 Months


    If you have any questions, feel free to contact us, (314)291-7000 or [email protected]
