Selling this 1968 Chevrolet Corvette to facilitate a family member with health needs, so bare with us while we gather more information and photographs. This car was purchased in 2013, at that time the engine (original matching numbers) was completely serviced and freshly painted with red lacquer. In the 6 years of ownership the new owner has put less than 3,000 as he just took it to car shows and rides along the beach. The previous owner said the car had over 157k miles, however, from the condition of the interior, it seems like it only has 57k miles but we want to me upfront about what was told to us. The only major issue with the car right now is that it needs new brakes which the owner cannot accommodate at this time. The car has been garaged it's entire life and it shows. There can be numerous small issues with a 51 year old car and rather to guess or list all those items, we highly encourage inspection of the car to answer any questions, or please email us with your questions or requests for additional photographs and we will be happy to accommodate you in that regard. You can obtain very reasonable vintage car insurance with Gundy or Haggerty for under $200 a year.

But to be upfront and honest we are listing the higher mileage.

AGAIN INSPECTION IS HIGHLY ENCOURAGED AS WELL AS ASKING QUESTIONS. Car is sold as-is, no repairs or concessions will be made for the sale.
