This stark white stunner could become yours.
America’s sports car, the Chevy Corvette, has been a legend since it launched. While it’s always great to see one, even more impressive is a classic model that’s been well cared-for, like this 1968 Chevrolet Corvette 427. This car is a real show-stopper, plus it will burn plenty of rubber, making for a stellar combination of beauty and fun.

Everyone knows Corvettes are powerful, but this one is packing the especially potent 427ci V8. A high-domed hood hints at the top engine choice. Through the 4-speed, close-ratio manual transmission, you feel a greater connection to this car and have more control over how it behaves on the road or track.
This car has only had a single owner, which is pretty amazing, plus it underwent an extensive frame-off restoration done by Thorpe Corvettes in O’Fallon, IL, which was wrapped in June of 2014. The result is an incredibly clean ‘Vette you’ll be hard-pressed to match. A Polar White paint job has been polished up nicely, with factory badging and brightwork to create an understated appearance. Factory wheels keep this car faithful to how it looked rolling off the assembly line.
As for the interior, it’s the rare factory Orange, making it even more desirable for collectors. As you’d expect with such an immaculate restoration, the vinyl upholstery, carpeting, headliner, dash, door panels, and other details are flawless. All factory gauges, switchgear, and steering wheel are included. Factory air conditioning is a nice luxury.
The 1968 model year launched plenty of big design changes for the Corvette, including a new exterior layout that almost made it feel like a convertible. Many people lust after this body style, which has become absolutely iconic. Innovations like an always-on Astro Ventilation system pushed the envelope when it came to practical comforts, too. This particular Corvette is an NCRS Top Flight Award winner from March 28, 2015. You can buy this renowned ‘Vette through Frank’s Car Barn.
