Five years after the Sting Ray's arrival in 1963, a total restyle ushered in the Corvette's 'Stingray' era, though the latter name was not officially applied to the new model until 1969. Based on GM's 1965 Mako Shark II show car, the new-for-'68 Corvette coupé became a 'notchback' with removable rear window and detachable, two-piece 'T-top' (Targa) roof, while the roadster, or convertible, version could be ordered with an optional hardtop. The previous generation's recessed pop-up headlights were retained, while the windshield wipers were now concealed beneath a vacuum-operated panel, the latter feature being inherited from the Mako Shark II. Beneath the skin the chassis remained fundamentally unchanged, and, as is often the case after a major revamp, changes in the immediately succeeding years were confined mainly to styling revisions, although a 'Positraction' (limited-slip) rear axle was newly standardised for 1972. By this time Federal emissions legislation was beginning to have an impact on power outputs, resulting in all engines producing less power than the year before.
The Corvette Stingray we offer has the 350ci (5.7-litre) V8 engine and manual transmission combination. The vendor purchased the car on 29th October 2005 from Brandon Classics of Atlanta, Georgia. A copy of the bill of sale is on file together with the Corvette's old state of Georgia Certificate of Title.
This Stingray has been on static display for a number of years and as such will require recommissioning prior to road use. Please also note this Lot is subject to UK import tax at the reduced rate of 5% if it is to remain in the UK.
