This classic car is for sale on Catawiki. To have more information or to place a bid click on the "BID NOW" button. .Do not miss this opportunity and become the new owner of this timeless classic Corvette Targa convertible! This is a NO RESERVE AUCTION.

The third generation Corvette is based on the Mako Shark II concept car. The C3 was introduced in model year 1968 and production continued until 1982. The C3 coupé was the first Corvette with removable T-top roof panels. Terms were used which would later return such as LT-1, ZR-1, and Collector Edition.

The Corvette C3 is seen less and less often and is becoming a rarity on the streets. This car starts straight away, idles nicely at 900 rpm, stops well, accelerates powerfully and shifts smoothly through all gears. The standard carburettor was replaced by a more powerful Edelbrock carburettor which gives the Corvette just a little more power.

The car was resprayed in the past, it’s still in reasonably good condition (except for some signs of wear). The interior is original and still looks good considering it’s 40 years old.

This is a beautiful Corvette with a lot of potential. So don’t wait and seize this opportunity to become the proud new owner of this magnificent piece of American history!
