Description
Lot #40 - The 1st year of the T-Top Corvette. This car has been garage kept. It has been personally maintained and kept factory original, with the exception of a few upgrades that are listed below. It is LeMans blue with black interior, 427 cubic inch (390 hp), 4 speed, 3.08/1 differential, air conditioning, power windows and power steering. This is a one-owner car since February 1969. It was purchased originally by my close friend George Mettrick. It has never been wrecked and never out of California (until now). Less than 5,000 miles since being restored in 1993 and 1994. Restoration (not body off) included paint with original DuPont LeMans blue acrylic Lacquer. Engine rebuild included .030 over TRW pistons, cam mild performance and balanced. Photo of the car is on the cover and the centerfold of the February 1998 issue of "Corvette Fever" featuring the 30th Anniversary of the 1968 Corvette (a copy goes with he car). 1970 rocker panels (originals were black plastic), 1969 outer window seals (68 had a higher lip), AM/FM cassette radio ( I have the original), Goodyear Radial tires with raised white letters (originals biased with narrow whitewall as the spare that is in the car) and radiator with improved cooling (looks like original).
