Fancy yourself as a good driver? Able to overtake others with a minimum of fuss? Then this C3 Corvette on eBay is the perfect vehicle to put your money where your mouth is.
Originally built as a 1968 Corvette convertible, this SCCA Corvette race car runs circles around Porsches and Jags, according to the seller. There are over $100,000 in receipts, including a fresh four-bolt 358 built by TWE Machine that has only had one run. It uses a four-barrel Holley atop a high-rise manifold surrounded by GM SB2.2 heads ported by Gibbs Racing. Horsepower is 648 and torque is pretty close to that. Gears are shifted via a new Jerico four-speed manual assisted by a Tilton three-disc clutch and hooked up to 4.11 gears out back. Wilwood pedals and big four-piston brakes all around help make this ballistic Corvette come to a stop.
All of that sounds great, but it’s the lightweight Greenwood wide-body that makes us want to hop in and ask someone to take pics of us.
There is a long list of spares, such as brakes, rotors, A-arms, half shafts, U-joints, bearings, plumbing hardware, hoses, gauges, wiring, belts, fuel pumps, and filters, three sets of wheels and tires, and more. Best of all, the Corvette comes with two log books, the first one dating back to 1972 with listed courses like Watkins Glen, Mid-Ohio, and plenty more big tracks. The second log is current and has a 2014 tech inspection—you can run in all the Vintage classes like GT1, SPO, V8 Stock car, and dozens of others . . . all for $39,000 (marked down from $42,500). As the seller says, a turnkey, vintage 1968 Corvette convertible race car that comes with a full spare package for one blow-out price—just bring your truck and trailer, hook it up, and go directly to the race track.
