1968 Corvette Coupe for sale


CCCUK Chairman
Update - all graffics removed_DSC4244.jpg. Looking towards selling my UK 20 year owned ‘68 coupe. Comes with ‘mothballed’ matching numbers OEM L36 427 cu in engine. Engine fitted currently is a John Sleath Racing 489 cu in ‘stroker’ engine on a totally re-built, seasoned 4 bolt block with 10.5 c/r JR forged pistons, forged Eagle crank and rods, Brodix Race Rite oval port heads, Howard flat tappet hydraulic cam,MSD billet tach drive distributor and 6T ignition, Edelbrock Air Gap RPM inlet + Proform 950 cfm double pumper carb,Hooker Super Comp headers and Hayward & Scott custom built 3” dia stainless steel ‘X’ pipe under chassis exhaust system. Dyno'd at 571 bhp @ 5850 rpm with 606 ft/lbs torque @ 3850 rpm a tthe crank. Dewitt OEM style ally radiator. Centerforce dual friction clutch + flywheel. Original Boyd Coddington Junk Yard Dog wheels, 18” dia and 8” wide on front (with 255/45/18” Toyo’s) and 9” wide rear (and 295/40/18” Toyo’s) All fit (just) under stock fender openings. After-market L88 style hood. Chassis and running gear are bone stock except for Koni gas shocks. Comes with original OEM big block hood. Original options were F41 ‘Slalom’ suspension, P/steering, non/power brakes, M21 gearbox and 3.08 rear. Car is very original in white with black interior. Paint has possibly been on the car for over 25 years and best described as ‘driver quality’. I’m sure some chassis work will be needed with it having been untidily (but solidly) plated in the usual places (front of rear wheel wells etc). Seats and centre console could do with refurbishing. Comes with new (and unfitted) carpets, new (and unfitted) ‘68 specific black door cards, some new T top/door seals, later oversized driveshafts, modified trailing arms + other bits and pieces collected during 20 years of ownership. Being London UK based and driven the 489 cu in engine was built more for torque and driveability than outright HP and 'pulls' comfortably from 1200 rpm or so. Fuel economy is actually better than the stock L36 427 engine. I’ve seen 16 Imperial mpg on a motorway cruise. Bodywork is completely stock so the next owner can either do a running resto with with original engine or use current engine engine and take it to the next level – there’s probably another 80/100 hp to be had with a roller cam. Looking for £28K sterling. Update ~ considering LS3 C6 as replacement.......
