” By now, you’ve probably memorized most of the Corvette story. From Zora Arkus-Duntov to the Mako Shark to the bankruptcy years, each of the car’s seven generations has its own key moments and cast of colorful characters. At this point, the third generation Corvette accounts for the middle section of the brand’s story and, looking back, it’s a remarkably appropriate car to hold that place. With visible nods to both Chevrolet’s heritage and future, examples like this Bloomington Gold certified roadster are finding firm footing in a collector market that will inevitably grow stronger. The subject of complete restoration, this numbers-matching Sting Ray features options like a tri-power 427, a rugged 4-speed transmission and 4-wheel disc brakes that make it both fun to drive and surprisingly capable. There’s never a bad time to buy a good Corvette, so if you’re looking to add a first class C3 to your collection, you’ve come to the right place!
Assembled at GM’s storied St. Louis manufacturing facility on March 18th, 1968, and Bloomington Gold certified on June 29th, 2013, this awesome drop-top is bathed in correct code 978 International Blue two-stage. Under that striking paint, the car’s solid fiberglass body presents well and has a solid feel that conveys a mostly rust and drama-free existence. That body’s panel gaps have been narrowed to better-than-factory standards, creating a smooth finish that, devoid of noteworthy issues, provides a testament to its high quality restoration. And overall, this vintage cruiser is a clean, well-maintained classic that provides a combination of style and reliability not normally found in moody trailer queens or butch barn builds. ”
