1968 Corvette roadster SCCA tribute race car


US $61,500.00 did not sell



Vehicle Description

This may be the car you have always dreamed of owning but either couldn't find or couldn't afford. I seriously doubt you could replace this car for my Buy It Now price. The car is a 1968 Corvette convertible with removable hardtop. It started life with a 327-350 engine and 4 speed trans and was brought to its current condition by http://www.2ndgenrestorations.com/roadraceinspiredvettes.html. These guys do phenomenal work with panel fit and paint work. I purchased the car a couple of years ago, minus engine, because I wanted to convert it to big block power. After searching for the right engine, I found one of the limited edition Ram Jet ZL-1 engines (number 155 of only 200 made) with only 36 miles on it, removed from a 55 Chevy show car. This Corvette is a very nice tribute to the SCCA / Trans Am Corvettes from the late 60's and early 70's. It was stripped to bare fiberglass and the left rear quarter panel replaced. This was the only damage the car had suffered. The frame is mint as is the birdcage and windshield frame..............no rust anywhere. Car has a very nice 6 point S&W welded in roll bar, fiberglass racing seats and racing seat belts, all correct for cars from that era. Due to hood clearance issues with the Ram Jet fuel injection plenum, I used a new Edelbrock Air Gap intake and a new 750 double pumper Holley carb. However, all the Ram Jet fuel injection stuff and manuals are included with the car. Only the best parts were used in the construction of this car. Car has been featured in August 2007 issue of Hemmings Muscle Machines and was the "Bill Miller Celebrity Choice" award winner at 2007 Corvettes @ Carlisle.

Wheels are reproduction Minilites by P&S Engineering. Cooling is by an oversize Be Cool aluminum radiator with dual, thermostatically-controlled electric fans. Car will run at 190 all day long and never overheat. Headers are Jet Hot coated.

The car has been completed (with ZL-1 engine installed) for only a couple of weeks. It is very powerful, yet docile enough to drive. The car needs nothing .........................it is ready to be driven, showed and enjoyed.

The reason I am selling the car is to devote the time and finances to a real estate project that has recently become available to me.
