Muscle Car Of The Week Video #41: 1968 Chevrolet Corvette L88 427 Roadster
http://www.musclecaroftheweek.com http://www.facebook.com/musclecaroftheweek The Corvette changed for 1968, evolving into the 3rd generation for the American sports car. The sleek new styling looks like full speed standing still, a trait shared by most Corvettes. This week's Muscle Car Of The Week could be considered the top-gun of all '68 Corvettes, as it carries a 500+ HP 427 under the hood, an optioned named the "L88". L88 cars featured not only a distinctive hood, but a whole list of performance enhancements... the F41 performance suspension, J56 heavy duty brakes, a Muncie M22 4-speed transmission, and of course, the 12.5:1 compression 427 V8. The LeMans Blue roadster in the Brothers Collection is one of only 80 built in '68, and it might look like a nice Sunday cruiser, but it was a thinly disguised race car sold to the public!

For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/jvnomsy If you're looking for a single C3 representative to add to your collection, options don't get much better than this investment grade 1968 Corvette. It's a numbers matching L89 427ci/435hp car backed by a four-speed manual transmission and all the best performance options. An original California car documented by its original tank and window stickers, the car's past is well understood. This C3 has also earned NCRS Top Flight honors and remains a fierce competitor wherever originality is king. The '68 Corvette marked a radical redesign which brought several aspects of the 1965 Make Shark II concept to life. Thanks to the Silverstone Silver paint, this C3 stays low-key despite the big numbers under the hood. While the rest of the car is original, the paint was updated in 1994 to better match its hardware. From the cross-flag emblems to the 427-branded hood, all the key pieces are here and ready for show. Tilt the hood forward to find an impressive centerpiece -- the legendary L89 427hp/435 cubic inch big block topped with aluminum heads, an aluminum intake, and a trio of Holley two-barrel carburetors. While the horsepower gains were marginal over the L71, the weight savings went a long way towards creating a better balanced driving experience. Cast iron Exhaust manifolds, a K66 transistorized ignition system, and a host of other factory-installed ancillary components do a great job at communicating just how authentic this bay really is. Behind the big block, the original close-ratio Muncie M21 4-speed still delivers authoritative shifts, spinning power back to a posi-traction axle with versatile 3.70 gears. The suspension remains stock with a double A-arm front and an independent rear with lateral leaf springs while power steering and tough J50 power drum brakes help out through the corners. At the corners, 15-inch rally wheels with 'top hat' centers and beauty rings meet the road through a fresh set of F70-15 Firestone redlines, rounding out the vintage look. Between the doors, a well-preserved interior offers space for two with plenty of style. From the well-preserved seats to the original AM/FM radio and removable hardtops, this a great cockpit to log miles from. With its original L89 tri-power 427cid V8, Muncie four-speed, killer list of options, and easy-to-live-with interior, this is both a fun and comfortable car to own and drive. With countless original pieces and a vintage look, it's also a great conversation starter with a very bright future in the collector marketplace. Early C3 lines are some of the best and this is a great living example of that design. Call, click, or visit http://rkmotorscharlotte.com for more information!

For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/bpkzqn3 Many Corvette enthusiasts regard the '68s as the purest of the C3 design, with delicate chrome bumpers, that swoopy bodywork, and the squared-off tail. This one has been beautifully restored using the correct code 974 Rally Red, of which a surprisingly low 2918 were built in '68. Panels are in very good condition, and since this one was restored with an eye on driving it, the Rally Red paint is brilliant, deep and rich.
