|The car is the 68 427/435 roadster, original motor pulled in 1974 because gas was 69 cents a gallon! I have traced history back to second owner, whose name and phone is sold with car. Have tank sheet, originally a copper colored corvette trim tag std (992) 11/1967 build date, tank sticker reads L71 427/435, k66 Ti Ignition, g81 411 posi rear end, m21 tranny, c08 vinyl covering top, c07 aux hard top (gone), u69 am-fm radio (still in car) a01 glass, a82 head rests, j50 brakes, n11 off road exhaust, n36 telscoping wheel, po1 wheel covers, std black top. The valve covers on this motor are a work of art, incredible. Number stamped on motor on cam boss above timing cover is 1019xaa, numbers on back of motor are 14015445 G2p and KO78, 990 heads and 1969 L88 Gm Intake. also have a original L88 gm hood (besides the motion hood on the car) L88 air cleaner base, nice set of big block hooker header side exhaust. Somebody before me spent lots of money on the suspension on this car, new bushing, brakes, exhaust for the 350 motor (new). This is a drivable car the way it sits, runs straight down the road and stops well. My intent was to pull this car down, repaint it the proper copper color, L88 hood, black motion stripe, and build a really nice street mauler out of it with the LS-6 motor and hooker side exhaust. Again, this car has HUGE potential. I have traced ownership on this car back to the second owner and I have his name and phone number. Also have extra door panels (mint 1968 originals) and a set of new seat covers. I have two sets of extra bumpers front and rear and a bunch of other brand new pieces, new doors handles on box, chrome windsheild corners. Also have an extra 1968 427/435 radiator that goes with this package. MAy 15, 2009.
