Post Resurrected 1968 Corvette

This ’68 Corvette was thrown to the curb, literally!

There’s a special place in heaven for those folks who have persevered, felt the sting of despair and isolation but, somehow, pressed on to see a pile of parts become their pride and joy.

John Marshall knows that all too well. While many enthusiasts have the privilege to see amazing cars dwelling among shows and featured in magazines, John is rooted in the knowledge that invariably, many didn’t start out that way. Case in point is this amazing and super-powerful ’68 Corvette.

One glimpse under the raised hood of this racy red ragtop and you’ll be smacked right between the eyes with a fistful of aluminum 510ci Donovan mountain motor. This fuel-injected powerhouse sounds great, but before it ever came to life, it went through hell.

I expected a restoration story instead of a rod build story.
I wish hubby had not sold his '68 in '83 for only $2500. GRrrrrrr!

a great article and an amazing car... I do have to say, I've never been a fan of that headlight treatment on any Corvette.
