1968 Corvette L71 – $2,700

427 cid Corvette Coupe Chassis

Recently Sold for $2700 on eBay

The buyer got a good deal on this 1968 Corvette L71 if it is indeed a true big block car. The original 427 cars are well sought after and can bring serious money when restored. The L71 engine was the largest of the 427 big block Corvette engines available in 1968. With it's tri-power intake system to pour in the gas the L71 was rated at 435 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque. And it was fairly rare with less than 3,000 made. 1968 was the first of the generation C3 Corvettes.

So it's a nice car if you can prove it's L71 heritage. But the seller admitted he had no documentation so that certainly brings down the value. The term "matching numbers" means a lot to many serious collectors in the Corvette world. Basically it means the car still has it's original engine, transmission and other major components. Tracking down the original engine for this car will be nearly impossible, so at best this car can be restored to nice driver condition without matching numbers.

It's missing the engine, transmission, glass, dash, T-tops and most of the interior. The body seems pretty straight, although there are some cracks and chips. Options include manual steering, power brakes and 3.55 posi-traction rear. Paint color is a rare one year only International Blue.
