Do not miss out on 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 the model year 1968 and would continue until 1982. The C3 coupe 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 is a well-maintained car which starts straight away, idles nicely, stops well and accelerates very powerfully and shifts gears smoothly. Also, the car has been well maintained in recent years, it for instance has a recently installed new ignition, new exhaust and new tyres. Also the carburettor has recently been overhauled.

The car still has excellent white paintwork with black accents which gives this Corvette a special appearance that attracts much attention. So don’t wait and seize this opportunity to become the proud new owner of this magnificent piece of American history.
