Strong Running C3! 427 Big Block, 4 Speed Manual, Side Pipes, T-Tops, Well Doc’d
Repainted back in its original shade of code 976 Lemans Blue, this 1968 coupe makes quite entrance everywhere it goes. There are few cars that will attract more attention than a C3 with big block badges on the hood, especially when it’s a bright blue L88-style hood that can scare children away. 1968 was the first year of the brand new Zora Duntov-designed C3, which was engineered to improve the aerodynamics of the C2 (which Zora himself decried as having “the aerodynamics of a bad airplane”) via its ‘Coke Bottle’ shape and upward arched fenders that all work together to create one of the most dynamic cars ever made in America.
Crisp, blue door panels, a matching crack-free dash, and fresh plush carpets give it that highly polished showroom look and the black-wrapped steering wheel, dash and console accents, and Hurst T-handle shifter add just a touch of contrast to the otherwise all-blue driver’s compartment. Like a lot of these big block muscle cars, options are sparse, but you do get seatbelts, a center console, and the original Delco AM radio that’s remarkably still in place. Clear gauges show crisp markings and bright needles, both ahead of the driver and in the center stack, and the middle console and dash pad are matching blue and show only slight wear, likely from someone holding on for dear life while the monster under the hood ate up laps at the racetrack.
1 heavy-duty rear with PosiTrac) combine with the big block’s mountainous torque curve to make acceleration entertaining at any speed and clutch take-up on the 4-speed manual is smooth and progressive, making it very easy to drive. Factory turbine-style wheels give the ‘Vette a traditional performance look and they’re wrapped in beefy Cooper Cobra white-letter radials with plenty of tread left. Offered with loads of build receipts and maintenance records, the original tank sticker, and the original dealer invoice/order copy, this true big block C3 has the provenance to satisfy the purists, and the performance parts to satiate any car lover.
