Maroon 1968 Chevrolet Corvette 427/435 CID 4 Speed Manual

Ladies and Gentlemen, Gateway Classic Cars of Kansas City is Honored to present a rare offering, and getting rarer by the second, a 1968 Cordova Maroon, four-speed, Chevrolet Corvette Convertible, L71, 435 HP, 427 cubic inches of awesomess!

In 1968 the new Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, also known as the Corvette C3, significantly revised from the linear with its knife-edge beltline, on the new ’68 The front sloped steeply with pop-up headlights, and fenders were sharply crowned, creating the impression that the car was lower.

Our stunning Cordova Maroon exterior with matching hard top, black interior, and black convertible top is a rare sight indeed!

Out of 28,566 Corvettes produced this year, only 1,155 (4.04%) were painted Cordova Maroon. Out of the ten color options offered, this was the least produced. Combine this the rare powertrain option of L71, 427 cubic inch, 435 horsepower engine and a four-speed transmission, and its slim pickings to find a comparable example of this ‘King of the Street’ Corvette.

As far as options on our Corvette? There is a steering wheel, four-speed shifter, manual transmission, a gas pedal (the loud pedal) and power brakes.

That is really all you need.

Oh, there is a radio, but you’ll never hear it once you get out of second gear. There’s really not much more you can say about this terrific machine.
