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.

Seven Hills Motorcars is glad to offer this 1968 Big Block Corvette Coupe for sale.  This Corvette is an awesome driver and we have it priced to sell.  The car looks great, runs great, and is an absolute blast to drive, especially with the extra power from the big block.  It is blisteringly fast.  This is an excellent opportunity to own a very desirable Corvette at an unbeatable value.  One could easily buy this car now and sell it for more than the purchase price with minimal work and effort.  It gets a ton of attention going down the road.  I cannot even count the number of compliments I have received while driving this Corvette.  This is one of the best values for any "chrome bumper" big block Corvette on the market right now.  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 Tuxedo Black exterior is in nice driver condition.  As one can see in the photos the finish has nice gloss, deep shine, and smooth finish.  The chrome bumpers and other bight work on the car show well.  There are no major imperfections that have been intentionally excluded from the photos.  There are some small blemishes that were too faint to show up in photos, but nothing that is really stands out from about five or ten feet away.  The paintjob has some age and blemishes, which is evident in the photos.  I have done my best to accurately and objectively photograph the car and show the flaws, but some are too small or cannot be picked up by the camera.  One should really view the car in person to get the best and most accurate idea of what the car really looks like.  For the most part however, the car looks in person as it does in the photos The car does have some rust underneath.  The fit of the hood is not perfect, which is visible in the photos.  The wheels are in good condition with a nice finish.  The tires are literally brand new with less than 100 miles on them.

Window Date Codes

Please note that all of the side glass on this car, the "Astro Ventilation" door glass and even the pop out rear window, is date coded and original as each piece predates the car's body build date of March 1, 1968 (H01). Original glass is a good indication that this car has had no major accident history and never sustained significant damage.

Driver: NX - "N" denotes January and "X" denotes 1968 meaning the driver's side window was made in January of 1968 .

Passenger: NX -
"N" denotes January and "X" denotes 1968 meaning the passenger's side window was made in January of 1968 .

Rear: IZ -
"I" denotes June and "Z" denotes 1967 meaning the rear window was made in June of 1967 .

 

Interior

 

The black interior of the Corvette is also in fantastic condition.  The seats look almost brand new with no rips, splits seams, or signs of excessive wear.  They are not worn in the typical areas such as where the driver gets in and out.  The carpet is also in great condition with no stains, rips, or holes.  This includes the rear carpet, which is often neglected.  The dash and console are in great condition with no cracks, fading, or sun damage.  The door panels are in nice condition with no wear on the arm pads.  This car has not been smoked in; there are no burn marks or aroma whatsoever.


Mechanical

This car seems to be in good mechanical condition.  It is an exceptional driver that feels great on the road.  The car starts right away every time, idles well, runs well.  There is no smoke when starting or driving the car.  The previous owner said that he had the engine completely rebuilt, along with a lot of other work, within the past year.  The engine is a 454, however in appearance it is indistinguishable from the 427, while still benefiting form a few extra cubic inches.  That is why the "427" emblem was left on the hood as it also give the car a more correct look.  The transmission shifts well throughout the power band.  The brakes do not pull to one side or the other.  Please note that like any Corvette without power brakes, the pedal takes more pressure than what most people are used to.  Also, the engine compartment is clean and nicely detailed as one can see in the photos.  This Corvette is extremely fast with a ton of power and not for the faint of heart.  The horn works as do the headlights, headlight override vacuum switch, all gauges (with the obvious exception of the clock), lights, and wipers.  The manual vent controls, blower motor, radio, and, like almost all Corvettes from 1968-71, the fiber optics are not functional plus it has a slight tick from the headers.  The tach itself works, but the tach cable is not currently connected.  When the previous owner installed the complete high end MSD ignition system it came with a new aluminum distributor.  Corvettes are different from other Chevrolet applications in that the tachometer is driven from a cable that connects to the base of the distributor.  The MSD distributor obviously does not have a tach drive so that is why the tach is not connected.  A brand new HEI distributor with a tach drive is included with car for the future owner.  Nothing sounds like a big block except the real thing and this car sounds absolutely awesome with a very aggressive and healthy tone from the exhaust.  Not enough can be said as to how much of a pleasure it is to drive this car, especially with the extra power form the big block and the t-tops out on a beautiful day.


Overall
Condition

 

Overall, this 1968 Corvette is in great driver condition.  It is an excellent value for a big block and we have priced it to sell.  This car turns heads and gets ton of attention 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.  The value of these cars has gone up exponentially in recent years.  They are all solid investments for a collector.  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.
