Rare, numbers matching, documented 427 Corvette convertible!

It's becoming increasingly difficult to find a big-block Corvette these days with as much originality, purity and documentation as this beautiful '68 Corvette Convertible. Originally delivered by a dealer in New Mexico, this car was equipped to keep the driver as comfortable as possible in the desert climate. This car was ordered with a black vinyl covered removable hardtop, sans the more common folding top configuration. Although not shown in the photos, the hardtop is in good condition and comes with the car. Later in life, an original Corvette convertible frame and black vinyl folding top were added for more versatility. Factory air conditioning keeps the enclosed cabin cool, while factory style power steering was installed along with the convertible top.

Finished in beautiful Safari Yellow, this car still wears a large percentage of its original paint. The rear deck cover and an area on the drivers front fender show some touch-up attention. However, the overall paint still presents well with only a few minor nicks. The interior and top are in very nice condition as is all the brightwork and glass. This is a great example of a surviving, original 427 Corvette.

The purity of its appearance is enhanced by the numbers matching 427/390hp V8 and M20 4-speed transmission. Well documented with the original tank sticker, keys, owners manual and more, this is truly a desirable example of the first of the third generation Corvette.
