The classic sports car look starts with the super slick body that's adorned with generous factory stainless trim and bright chrome! Professionally treated in Hot Red from jamb to jamb for a no excuse's presence. The convertible top has been completely restored from the bows to the black canvas! Yes, a hardtop is included but will need some cosmetic restoration. Topping off the sporty exterior Muscle Car look is a full set of steelie wheels wrapped in radial rubber and finally fitted with period dog dish hub-caps! Hop inside to a combo of black, gray cloth seat centers and classic early Vette instrumentation!

Power is provided by healthy 1968 327 V8 fitted with big valve (camel hump heads), Edelbrock aluminum intake, 4bbl Carb and new 2 1/2" exhaust with Flowmaster Mufflers. Transfer of the juice is sent thru a completely rebuilt Muncie 4 Speed manual transmission equipped with Hurst Shifter. The rubber meets the road thru a stock 370 Posi differential. Other rare period options include a steering quickner and traction bars! Very Tight.
