Restomod 1968 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible.

Nothing on this car matches, it was assembled from donor cars including 69 doors, 73 "gill panels" behind the wheels, and numerous custom touches on the body which features a custom tilt front end, square headlights glassed in behind custom billet grille. Driver quality paint, stone chips and some cracks, really could use paint to be top notch. Stripes are plasti dip and peel off if you don't like the design, it brings out the body lines and has a look of speed.

Non matching number drivetrain is a 350 rebuilt (mileage unknown), runs great, chevy high rise alum intake, roller rockers, rebuilt heads, about 325 HP, headers, holley 600 carb (no leaks!!), new water pump, new gear reduction starter (light!), crinkle paint valve covers, wrapped headers, 2 1/4 dual exhaust, rebuilt 350 turbo automatic, custom rad hoses and flex fan, car runs right on the thermostat even in traffic at 180.

Torq thrust wheels with hoosier tires, very solid no rust frame, great bird cage, this car has had an older frame off resto with new suspension bushings, sway bar end links, brand new brakes, rotors, braided brake lines, suspension cleaned and painted, underside of the car has lots of sweat equity in it to look this good!

The interior is presentable with nice seats with new covers, carpet is pretty worn, no holes, door panels are worn and have some cracks and bad spots, windows don't line up real well at top (both of which are ALWAYS down when I drive it so not an issue except for uncovered outdoor storage, top leaks. The top has a small tear but looks good, top frame works well,

The bad:

It's an OLD car. Door panels need replacing, needs the factory tach and gas gauge fixed, a Sun tach is on the steering wheel column and works fine, oil pressure and engine temp gauge work too.

C3 resto mods are HOT now, fun to drive, and very affordable!

Will assist with shipping the car or can drive to you and fly home for a plane fare and gas $$$ after car is paid in full. This is a great "starter vette" that gets the looks of the high dollar rides without the high price tag!

Ready to deal on this car. First 11,000 cash in hand gets it.

Also check on my TT 4.8 complete engine. It is designed for this car.

If I get my job, this car will get the updated engine, but naturally price goes up.

Will also sell the 350/350 turbo tranny. Drive it first, $3k for both the engine and tranny. Lots of new parts.
