Gateway Classic Cars Houston Showroom is pleased to present this bright red 1968 Chevrolet Corvette. This isn't just your average "Little Red ('68) Corvette" - it's been treated to a potent 383 CID Stroker V8, so you'll find a little extra giddyup when you snap that throttle open. The fully balanced 383 features Dart II Sportsman heads, a Comp Cams hydraulic roller bumpstick, roller rockers, Edelbrock aluminum intake, a big 4BBL carb, MSD-enhanced ignition, and coated Hooker headers. Behind the 383 is a 4-speed manual transmission, which really adds to the fun. The red paint is in good shape, as is the black interior, which has been improved, albeit subtly: a new, vintage-style AM/FM head unit (with USB Aux) was installed to provide better sound than its '68 unit could ever put out. A set of custom front kick panels hide upgraded Infinity speakers, and behind the seats, a pair of tuned speaker enclosures play host to Infinity tri-axial speakers. A big Kicker amp boosts the decibels through all 4 speakers. The black synthetic leather seats are in good shape, and the black carpet has aged nicely, showing little wear. This red '68 is riding on a set of steel Rallye Wheels that are wrapped with BF Goodrich Radial T/A radials, giving it that vintage muscle car look. Behind the wheels, one can see the sporty red brake calipers, which provide improved looks and stopping performance. A final note on this Little Red Corvette - while it IS an A/C car, the air conditioning is not blowing cold. This '68 Corvette is ready for its next home, so call or email our Houston showroom today to make it yours!
