For sale at Gateway Classic Cars in our St. Louis showroom is a 1968 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe powered by an L-71 435 horse tri-power big block. With an engine like the L-71, a close ratio Muncie 4-speed and a set of 4.11 gears, look out! This thing means business and that's how it was in 1968. Manufactures were at war for the most powerful muscle cars and the Corvette was not one to be taken lightly. The L-71 was rated at 435 horsepower and 460 lbs/ft of torque. By 1968 the big three were well known for under rating the horsepower. This was in an effort to slide under the radar with the insurance companies and lobbyist that were cracking down on over powered cars. The L-71 was near the top for engine options in 1968. Only the race only L-88 and the aluminum head L-89 were above the L-71.

This '68 Corvette was recently fully restored and 95% of the parts used are OEM. The engine and transmission are both numbers matching and have both recently been rebuilt. Since the full restoration, the car has covered just 500 miles. Enough to make sure that all the bugs are worked out and few enough miles that the car still looks amazing. The car was painted in the original LeMans Blue and the interior is also the original Dark Blue vinyl. Inside the cockpit you'll notice the solid lifter 6,500 RPM redline, chrome shifter for the close ratio M-21 4-speed and the aviation style gauges. Pop out the T-tops, the rear glass, start the engine, listen to the rumble and get ready for a memorable ride.

1960 Chevrolet Impala

1960 Chevrolet Impala


Engine: 283 CID V8
Transmission: 2-Speed Automatic
Mileage: 18,176 ( actual )

Now for sale in our Houston Showroom is this gorgeous 1960 Chevrolet Impala! This is no ordinary Impala. This is a true survivor car. The 283 CID V8 engine is the original that was put in the car in the factory when it was being put together. Covering only 18,176 miles since it first drove off the showroom floor all those years ago. Amazingly, the paint on this car has the original undercoat on it! Even the original AM radio in the car works as it should. This is part of a two-model-year run for the second generation of the much-loved Impala. The 1959 Chevrolet Impala was redesigned. Sharing bodyshells with lower-end Buicks and Oldsmobiles as well as with Pontiac, part of a GM economy move, the Chevrolet's wheelbase was 1-1/2 inches longer. Using a new X-frame chassis, the roof line was three inches lower, bodies were two inches wider, and curb weight increased. Its tailfins protruded outward, rather than upward. The taillights were a large "teardrop" design at each side, and two slim-wide nonfunctional front air intake scoops were added just above the grille, The Impala became a separate series, adding a four-door hardtop and four-door sedan, to the two-door Sport Coupe and convertible. Sport Coupes featured a shortened roof line and wrap-over back window. Standard were front and rear armrests, an electric clock, dual sliding sun visors, and crank-operated front vent windows. A contoured hooded instrument panel held deep-set gauges. A six-way power seat was a new option, as was "Speed minder", for the driver to set a needle at a specific speed and a buzzer would sound if the pre-set was exceeded. The 1960 Impala models reinstated three round taillights on each side, and a white band running along the rear fenders. Anyone looking at the pictures and video of this beautiful machine can clearly see why it’s a great buy. The design is timeless. Don’t wait until it’s gone to inquire. Don’t miss your chance to get behind the wheel of this one. Contact Gateway Classic Cars in Houston for more information. Financing and shipping options are available. Office hours are Monday through Saturday 9-5pm central time. The telephone number for our showroom is (832) 243-6220 or if you prefer, you can email us at houston@gatewayclassiccars.com.
