1968 CHEVROLET CORVETTE 427/435 HP COUPE
Finished in classic Silverstone Silver with beautiful Black interior. This magnificent motorcar has been a California car from new and has had only 2 previous owners! It has been driven just 51,502 miles before a spectacular, 3-year, no expense spared, frame-off restoration was performed. We would go as far as saying that this is one of the finest, if not the finest, 1968 427/435 coupe on the market today! We are proud to offer this stunning Corvette to the most astute collector, investor or enthusiast who desires nothing but the best. Bid with confidence – you will not be disappointed in this truly one-of-a-kind offering! HISTORY OF THE 1968 CORVETTE: For 1968, the Corvette's first major restyling since 1963. As the sales brochure read, "Corvette '68... all different all over." It had plenty of power even in small-block form, and its all-independent suspension, if not exactly state-of-the-art, was certainly more than adequate. Testing a 350-bhp 327 roadster with the four-speed and 3.70:1 final drive, Road & Track reported a top speed of 128 mph, a standing quarter-mile of 15.6 seconds at 92 mph, and 0-60-mph acceleration of 7.7 seconds. Car and Driver, running a 400-bhp 427 coupe, hit 60 mph in 5.7 seconds and posted a 14.1-second quarter mile at a blazing 102 mph. Inside and out, the Corvette for 1968 was completely redesigned. Nicknamed the "Shark," the fast-back was replaced by a tunneled-roof coupe. It featured a removable back window and a two-piece detachable roof section or T-top. The convertible's optional hardtop had a glass rear window again. The front end was more aerodynamic than ever. As before, the headlights were hidden, but now they were vacuum-operated, rather than electrical. The wipers also disappeared when not in use. Except for the rocker panels, the sides were now devoid of chrome. Conventional door handles were eliminated and in their place were push buttons. The blunt rear deck contained four round taillights with the word Corvette printed in chrome in the space between them. The wraparound, wing-like rear bumper and license plate holder treatment somewhat resembled that used on the 1967 models. Even though the car had undergone some serious restyling, more people bought Corvettes than ever before; model-year sales set a new record at 28,566 units, some 5,000 up on the final Sting Ray of 1967. Part of this was due to prices that remained competitive at $4,320 for the ragtop and $4,663 for the coupe. Reflecting its popularity, the new Corvette was chosen Best All-Around Car in Car and Driver's annual reader's poll (the 1967 Sting Ray had been likewise honored), as well as Best Sports/GT Car Over 3000cc.

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
