Car history:
VERY RARE fully documented 1968 427/435HP Black Corvette convertible with
gunmetal vinyl interior and white soft top.

It has the L71 427/435hp tri-power engine with an M21 close ratio 4 speed
transmission and a 3:70 positraction rear axle. There were only 708 black
Corvettes produced in 1968 and this is a REAL one.

We purchased the car from the second owner and the recent frame off restoration
is almost complete, he just did not have the time to finish it. The car can either
been finished by the new owner or hire us at Corvette Mike to complete it. Most
of the major items have been bought and restored and the remaining work and
expense is mostly labor.

This is possibly the most documented 1968 Corvette in existence and it includes:
Original window sticker
Build sheet
Dealer invoice to customer with payment receipts
Copy of original title
Dealer Invoice copy
Original Owners manual in plastic with other items
and much more

The options include:
M21 4 Speed Close ratio transmission
L71 435HP engine
AM/FM radio
Tinted Glass
Power steering
Auxiliary hard top
Positraction Axle 3:70 ratio
Full transistor ignition
Off road exhaust

The car has many original parts which have been restored and/or rebuilt. The
flared fenders were added in the 1970s and can be changed to stock. The body
and frame are in excellent condition. The original engine block has been changed
but the replacement is the correct casting number and cast date for the car and
can be restamped for judging if needed.

We believe that almost all of the parts to complete the restoration are included
and that is what makes this such a great value.

Here is the opportunity to own a RARE fully documented REAL black 435HP 1968
Corvette convertible at a very reasonable price.

The BUY IT NOW price of $49,990 is a bargain.
