about our dealership
Seven Hills Motorcars is Cincinnati's premier Corvette specialist and a licensed and registered auto dealer by the State of Ohio.  With many years of focused experience I specialize in 1957 to 1982 Corvettes.  There is no other dealership that can better meet your needs if you would like to buy, sell, or just find out more information about your Corvette.  This is simply a one man operation, and this is not my full time employment.  I do it because I enjoy it.  I am a collector and enthusiast and therefore look for cars that excite me.  I do not purchase at dealer auctions; each car is hand picked by me because it is special or rare to me and because I like it.

vehicle description

 


Seven Hills Motorcars is very proud to offer this absolutely beautiful 1968 Corvette Convertible
that is priced to sell.  The car looks awesome, runs great, is a blast to drive, and comes with both hard and softtops.  This is an excellent opportunity to own a very desirable Corvette at an unbeatable value.  The custom color on this Corvette is absolutely stunning.  I cannot even count the number of complements we have received about the paint on this car.  This Corvette gets a ton of attention going down the road.  While this car is not completely numbers matching, it does feature a 3914678 engine block with is the correct casting number for a 1968 Corvette.  Please peruse all of the photos below to get a true sense of how nice this Corvette really is.

As a side note, this Corvette is not a dealer auction vehicle.  Our Corvettes come from owners who expect their cars to go to someone that will give the vehicle the same care and attention as they did.  We invite and encourage you to examine the car in person or have the car inspected.  Please take the time to scrutinize each picture.  We photograph each vehicle to the greatest extent so you can feel confident about your purchase.  If you have a question about the Corvette, just give us a call.

Exterior

The deep purple exterior is in absolutely beautiful driver condition.  As one can see in the photos the finish has fine gloss, deep shine, and smooth finish.  The chrome bumpers and other bight work on the car look awesome with great finish and no rust or pitting.  The wheels are in excellent condition with no curb rash on the beauty rings.  There are no major blemishes that have been intentionally excluded from the photos.  There are some imperfections that were too faint to show up in photos, but nothing that is really stands out from about five or ten feet away.  There is one spot on the left fender and a few on the convertible deck lid with specific photos below.  The tires are in nice shape with about 80% tread left.  The convertible top like brand new with no rips or holes.  The top itself fits ok, but as with many of the C3 convertibles there are some fitment issue around the windows.  The rear window is perfectly clear and not yellowed or foggy at all.  The hardtop also fits okay, but could also probably benefit from some adjustments.  Please note that this car still retains its original and correct "Astro Ventilation" door glass.  This Corvette has absolutely NO rust issues.  The frame is totally solid with no rust in front of the rear tire and I have seen no evidence of corrosion around the windshield, which are the most notorious areas for rust on a C3 Corvette. 

The Corvette looks just as good in person as it does in the photos.

 

Interior

 

The black interior in the Corvette looks marvelous.  The seats look like new with no rips, splits seams, or virtually any signs of wear.  They are not worn in the typical areas such as where the driver gets in and out.  The carpet throughout the car is also in "like new" condition with no stains, rips, or holes.  This includes the rear carpet, which is often neglected.  The dash is in great condition with no cracks, fading, or sun damage.  The door panels look new with no cracks, splits, or wear on the arm pads.  This car has no aroma of cigarette smoke whatsoever.  The aftermarket stereo radio works well.  Most importantly, the radio is a Corvette specific unit designed to fit into the stock location so the original dash has not been cut or modified. 

 

The interior looks just as good in person as it does in the photos.


Mechanical

This car seems to be in good mechanical condition.  It starts right away every time, idles well, runs well.  The Corvette drives great; it is smooth on the road and at highway speeds.  The brakes are responsive and do not pull to one side or the other.  The car shifts well, does not pop out of gear, and the clutch feels good.  There is no notable smoke when driving the car.  There are no issues that I am aware of that immediately affect the drivability of the car.  Also, the engine compartment is beautifully clean, detailed, and nicely dress up as one can see in the photos.  All of the lights work as does the horn and blower for the heater on all speeds.  All of the gauges work, with the obvious exception of the clock.  The speedometer works, but the odometer does not turn.  The headlights pop up with no binding in the mechanism.  The vacuum operated wiper door works and so do the windshield wipers themselves.  As with most 1968-71 Corvettes the fiber optic light monitoring system is not totally functional.   The car is not obnoxiously loud, but has a very healthy sounding exhaust note from the sidepipes.  This car is a pleasure to drive, especially with the 4-speed transmission and top down on a nice day.

A note on the fiber optic light monitoring system.  We consistently receive questions about the purpose of this system, exactly what it is, and what it does.  The sole and main idea behind the fiber optic light monitoring system is to simply confirm that all of the exterior lights, headlights, indicators, tail lights, etc., are working and to make the driver aware of a a burned out bulb.  Each lamp on the outside of the car has an actual fiber optic cable the runs to an indicator on the center console.  There are nine small indicators on the console and each has its own finer optic cable.  When the bulb goes on the light travels through the fiber optic cable and illuminates the corresponding indicator on the console.  If someone does not remember to plug the cable end into the lamp housing, does any work to the center console, or if there is a break in a connection or anywhere along the cable, that indicator no longer works.  As one can image, over time this is very common.  

The system is very fragile and almost every driver quality Corvette we receive from 1968 through  1971 has at least some of the fiber optics that are no longer functional.  The system was so temperamental and unnecessary that it was only used on Corvettes from 1968-1971 and was deleted by Chevrolet for the Corvette in 1972


Overall
Condition

 

Overall, this 1968 Corvette Convertible with both tops is in excellent driver condition.  It is a great value and we have priced it to sell; the previous owner who did all the work to the car had much more into it than we are asking.  This car turns heads and gets ton of attentions wherever it goes.  In my opinion and based on our experience the "Chrome Bumper" cars from 1968-1972 are the most collectible in the entire Corvette market right now.  Unfortunately, we did not receive a working door key for this Corvette.  If the buyer would like a key we can source one for an additional $250.  The value of these cars has gone up exponentially in recent years.  They are all solid investments for a collector.  Cars like this are the Barrett Jackson stars of the future.  One could easily enjoy this vehicle for several years and sell it for more than the purchase price with minimal effort.

 

Thank you for looking and please email or call with any questions.
