The Chevrolet Corvette is instantly recognisable by the marque
aficionado and non-aficionado alike. The first model. a
convertible. was designed by Harley Earl and introduced at the GM
Motorama in 1953 as a concept show car. Originally built in Flint. br/>Michigan and St. Louis. Missouri. the Corvette. today. is
manufactured in Bowling Green. Kentucky. The third generation
Corvette. the C3. was designed along the lines of the Mako Shark II
concept car and was introduced for the 1968 model year continuing
in production until 1982. Engines and chassis components were
mostly carried over from the C2 but the body and interior were all
new.

The example presented here represents an incredibly rare example
and was only produced during one year. 1968. It benefits from
having a matching numbers 327c. i. engine and four-speed manual
gearbox producing some 350hp. It has also been comprehensively
restored to original factory specification in Safari Yellow with a
contrasting black weave interior and black convertible top. It sits
atop period Rally wheels and whitewall radial tyres and has
travelled very few miles since its restoration. Accompanying this
particularly special Corvette re two detailed files relating to its
history as well as the original build plate and 1968 handbooks. So
significant is it that this actual car was referred to the
television series. 'Car SOS' hosted by Tim Shaw and Fuzz Townshend
and featuring respected Corvette specialists Tom Falconer from
Claremont Corvette with the host driving this very car on screen.

recommended in this instance.
