We have a feeling the spirit of Zora resides in this 1968 Corvette that was converted to a track car in the early 2000s.
Now it’s attracted a high bid of $11,000 on bringatrailer.com, with five days to go before the auction closes.
Since its conversion, this Stingray has been used “primarily for ride-alongs by a track promoter,” taking part in an SVRA event in 2013.
Sporting red livery with racing numbers and fender decals, the car, acquired by the seller earlier this year, certainly offers a throwback to the good ol’ days with an ol’ reliable Muncie M21 four-speed manual transmission hooked to a modified 383 V8 with aluminum cylinder heads. It sure sounds sweet going around the track in the accompanying video that offers a driver’s seat view of the action.
This Corvette is loaded with racing goodies, like a roll cage, racing seats with harnesses, a Fuel Safe fuel cell, Wilwood disc brakes, aftermarket 17-inch wheels with Hoosier slicks, Ridetech coilovers and StrongArms front control arms, a window net, a fire suppression system, and tube headers feeding an exhaust that exists ahead of the right rear wheel . You don’t have to worry about those sometimes troublesome pop-up hidden headlights as block-off plates now cover them up.
In the stripped-down interior, you’ll also find an aluminum steering wheel framing a stock 160-mph speedometer and tachometer, with a custom central panel with a rotated Moroso tachometer, a shift light, and auxiliary gauges. The odometer shows 25,000 miles, but the actual mileage is a mystery.
This classic C3 sounds like a fun way to spend a weekend at the track. Does it entice you, too?
