Tarlton Vintage Autos is proud to bring to the market this beautiful 1968 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible 427 / L36. This 3rd Generation Triple-Black Corvette was a Barn Find in a previous life. Brought back to life about 10 years ago with a full frame-off nut and bolt restoration. They didn’t stop at just a cosmetic restoration, the entire drivetrain was rebuilt at this time as well, along with a mostly new black leather interior.

The numbers matching 427 / 390HP L36 is original to the car and sounds amazing through some upgraded 1969 factory side exhaust. The original exhaust manifold and rear valance are included with the car if you’d like to return it to the original 1968 specification. Power is driven through a 4-speed manual transmission with an upgraded Hurst shifter. Power is then delivered via a numbers matching 4:11 differential. The engine, transmission, and rear end have all been rebuilt with the frame-off restoration. And new tires keep this Corvette planted to the ground.

The updated black leather interior shows well for its age. Inside you will also find some desirable features along with the 4-speed manual transmission. Electric Windows and a telescopic steering column are a bonus to this fantastic muscle car! Keeping the cabin dry is a very nice Black Cloth Top and the sought-after original Black Hard Top.

With only 1,500 miles on this car, since its restoration, this beautiful example will be a fantastic addition to any Corvette Entusiast’s Garage!
