'68 Corvette Bronze 396/375

Neat car claiming to have the original engine and broadcast sheet (I'd like to see that, can't say I have ever seen a broadcast sheet in a '68 built in Norwood).

I think it's priced close to market if the engine deck stamp checks out. Thoughts?

Re: '68 Corvette Bronze 396/375

Nice car. Being for by a dealer probably priced about $10k over what's it's worth.

Re: '68 Corvette Bronze 396/375

I agree, mid $50s sounds right.

Re: '68 Corvette Bronze 396/375

Was talked about in here in 2002.

Pic of the engine pad stamping is so obscure, it almost makes me wonder what they have to hide.
Geez, take a better picture.

Re: '68 Corvette Bronze 396/375

That is a really nice car - love the color. Would like it even more with a VT and RS equipment, but can't complain.

Love the mag wheel covers!

Re: '68 Corvette Bronze 396/375

Yes, ordering the console with gauge package got you the Tic-Tock Tachometer. Red lines varied by engine type and horsepower.

Re: '68 Corvette Bronze 396/375

Car looks great to me. The optional stock caps are a hoot. Love that color.

Re: '68 Corvette Bronze 396/375

Block stamped march 12th and car built 3rd week of March is dam tight, but doable I think?

Re: '68 Corvette Bronze 396/375

Doesn't seem out of line. My old '69 Z/28 was a week apart on engine assembly date vs body tag.

Damn tight is right. My 396/350hp is cast G 23 9 and stamped 0728 for an 08D build. Aug 22. That's almost a month out. Granted, that's 69, not '68.

Re: '68 Corvette Bronze 396/375

The stamping may seem tight to some, but for Norwood mid model year '68 I think it may be normal. My 350 block is 12/26 and a 01A build. Just a week apart, like this one. NCRS confirmed shipping on 1/6.

Re: '68 Corvette Bronze 396/375

I would like a better pic of the pad before..

Just a couple old Camaros.

Do you have a 68 L78 Camaro? If so, message me as I'd like to add it to my registry.
