1968 Corvette convertible

* Rebuilt L71 427-435 hp (factory three carbs), matching numbers engine with original tank sticker

* Original transistor ignition distributor (as shown on tank sticker), worth about $2000, comes with car, but not currently installed

* Original valve covers and shielded ignition wiring included

* 4 speed Muncie

* 4:11 posi

* Car was redone about 14 years ago (body, which was originally British Racing Green, was stripped to bare glass and painted red) and still shows well, although not perfect. Less than 2,000 miles on it since completion. I've owned the car for about ten years. I'm in my late sixties and drive it very little. Too many cars, too little time.

* Very rare Central Office Production Order ( COPO ) (special order) Saddle interior (Saddle interior was not a regular option until 1969), also shown on tank sticker

* Built in August 1968, last month of production year. Serial number 28164 (out of 28,566 Corvettes built for 1968). Late model year '68 Vettes included improvements that were made for 1969 models, such as the following, among other things:
(1) relocating latches for seats to make seats easier to flip forward,
(2) adding interior pull handles to the door panels,
(3) adding frame supports at rear "kick-up" of frame.

Being an August '69-built car is also why the Saddle interior was available as a special order item, which as stated above, was actually a 1969 model option. Buying an August-built car is as close as you can get to a '69 due to the updates made on 1968 models.

* Soft top (new) and red hard top in excellent condition

* Rare, cool, fast supercar from the 60's

* The NADA classic car price guide indicates the following values for a '68 L71 convertible:

Average condition - $78,475. My car is much better than average.
High Retail - $109,600

* Hagarty classic car value guide indicates the following values for a '68 L71 convertible:

Good Condition - $60,000, which my car far exceeds.
Excellent condition - $87,000
Concours condition - $117,000.

Asking $55,000 or partial trade (muscle or vintage car or pickup...late model Corvette.....multiple minded)
