Description for Chevrolet Corvette 1968

This car was on the cover of the November 1975 issue of Car Craft and was featured as a project in ten consecutive issues until August 1976. The Big Banana is also featured in a two page color spread in the December 1976 issue of Motor Trend as well as on the cover of Car Freaks 1976. This was the first street wide body Corvette. The car design was inspired by the newly released IMSA fender flare kit from Chevrolet that gave the car the Corvette GT inspired look made popular by John Greenwood. Custom painter Butch Brinza spent many hours duplicating the original graphics and then hand pinstripe them. A mechanical rebuild including a rebuilt 383 stroker small block, turbo 400 trans, 3.08 rear, A/C, PS, PB, new brakes, exhaust, etc, was completed by Corvette specialist Frank Saenz with parts supplied from Corvette Pacifica in Atascadero, CA. The "CC Vett" was a truly one-of-a-kind C3 Corvette build. Comes with all magazine articles, original 15x8 & 15x10 American vector rims, Matchbox cars, etc. Dan 858 926 six one 77
