1968 all numbers matching 427/390hp coupe, this car has everything including its original spare and spare tire. recently completed restoration, the rare stereo radio was repaired and is in perfect working order. Had all the bushings replaced as they were the original factory bushings and disintegrated when removed, the car was re-aligned and my mechanic was surprised to find that the car had never been aligned before, the factory shims were still in place. The car was aligned and the factory shims were saved as well as the shocks were replaced. A number of rubber weatherstripping around the t-tops were replaced. Has a brand new battery, fresh oil change, new shocks, and coolant flush.
Clock and all gauges work perfectly, alternator is correct date code, the car even has some of its original factory assembly/inspection marks as seen in the photos
The gas tank was dropped and the there was enough of the tank sticker remaining to confirm the 390 hp Turbo-jet engine, the M-21 close ratio transmission, positraction rear end, leather interior, and British Green paint The original tank was removed, the sticker sealed, and a brand new tank was installed, the original tank with its sticker is included The car also has a fuel return line, no radiator overflow tank, and 5600 redline tach, confirming the 390hp engine option. This is an early production car as evidenced by the forward location of the side mirror and the emission sticker on the radiator versus the firewall. The fifth picture from the end is the serial number for the M-21 4-speed, confirming that it is the original transmission as the numbers 11993 match the VIN.
Paint is in good condition, there are two small cracks by the front passenger hood mount, but they are in the paint, not the fiberglass, but all in all good driver quality paint This car is well optioned and as you see below, has two rare options, the rear window defrost and the factory car alarm, all the parts for the car alarm are there, the plungers in each door, the horns in the rear wheel wells, and the key in the rear valance, I did not have it hooked up as it has been known to drain the battery. Interestingly the car has exhaust cutouts from a 70, it looks like they were added at some point or as a replacement but I could not find any evidence of damage.
Car was delivered new to Hamilton Chevrolet in Warren Michigan.
New shocks, bushings, and battery were installed, the car was aligned and tuned, it starts right up with no problems and drives perfectly This is the lowest mileage C3 I have ever seen, an outstanding survivor with only 36,000 original miles
