Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Chevrolet’s Corvette remains the quintessential American sports car, and collector interest in the 1968–1982 C3 “Shark” cars is at an all-time high. The surge in C3 popularity has given rise to an insatiable demand for information about these cars, and this painstakingly researched book provides all of the details you need to bring your car up to the highest show standard.
 
Everything from running production changes to interpreting component part numbers and dates codes is clearly explained. Corvette 1968–1982 Restoration Guide provides accurate information on different paint and plating finishes, fastener types, engine parts, upholstery, gauges, soft trim, chassis components, body glass, wheels and tires, and virtually every other part that enables you to restore your Shark Corvette to its exact original factory configuration.
 
More than 400 color photographs of low mileage, beautifully preserved original cars as well as perfectly restored examples complement the detailed text and help illustrate vital information. Whether you’re performing a complete restoration or basic maintenance, this book is an invaluable resource that will help you every step of the way.

Synopsis:

This book delves into all of the idiosyncrasies of the C3s engine, drivetrain, body, chassis, and interior to guide both first time and experienced restorers to a successful conclusion of their project.

Third generation Corvettes (1968–1982), commonly known as C3s, are among the most plentiful and affordable Corvettes on the road today.

Unfortunately, many have fallen into disrepair and are in need of restoration. This book will delve into all of the idiosyncrasies of the C3’s engine, drivetrain, body, chassis, and interior to guide both first time and experienced restorers to a successful conclusion of their project.
