If you have any questions please email at: burmabluett@juno.com . This is a frame off/nut and bolt restored 1968 Corvette Convertible 427 Tri Power 435hp 4 Speed with only 65, 456 miles.  It is a NUMBERS MATCHING motor, transmission and rear end.  The current and third owner has had this car for 25 years since 1991.  Just about every piece of this car has been replaced or restored.  The car was disassembled, the body separated from the frame,  the body stripped and prepped and repainted in January of 2006.  The car was then reassembled with many new parts, restored original parts and a few original parts that were good enough to reuse as is.  The frame was media blasted, painted, and reassembled with all new suspension components, Bilstein shocks, stainless brake lines, gas tank, new body mounts, etc.  The original numbers matching 427ci 435hp engine was rebuilt to factory specs with all new internals.  It was also dipped clean and repainted correct.  The original 3x2 tri power intake and carbs were rebuilt, installed and adjusted.  All new hoses, belts, radiator, clutch, motor mounts, stainless exhaust, wiring and all the other ancillary parts are new but the original alternator was rebuilt and installed.  The braking system is new from front to back and top to bottom including stainless sleeved brake calipers and silicone brake fluid.  We have carefully documented all the work with every receipt as well as notes from the rebuild.  The original Muncie M22 transmission and 3.55:1 Heavy Duty Positraction rear end were also rebuilt and restored to factory specs.  I have provided all of the stamping numbers and codes from the car farther down the page.  The body was painted back to the correct #976 International Blue before being reassembled.  New bonding strips were installed before paint and body work.  The car comes with extra paint for future use.  All of the body gaps are very nice and even, the bird cage and frame are original and solid.  The original bumpers were rechromed and are beautiful.  The new BF Goodrich Radials are wrapped around 8" Rally Wheels with trim rings and hubcaps.  The original hubcaps are included with the sale but not on the car.  The original Firestone Super Sport Wide Oval spare tire is in the spare tire carrier and still holds air.  The convertible top is brand new and put down for the first time in these pictures.  The interior sports the original dashboard and steering wheel as well as the seats in #414 Medium Blue vinyl.  All of the gauges and accessories work as designed including the power windows, wipers, headlights less the fiber optics in the console.  The carpet, door panels, visors and other trim pieces are brand new.  While the interior is currently set up as a radio delete, the original radio is included.  This car runs and drives flawlessly.  It drives straight with no pulling and stops on a dime.  As you can see from the pictures, this car is a show stopper for the casual observer up to and including the seasoned collector.
