1968 Chevrolet Corvette: A Symphony of Power with 450 HP and a Livery that Defines Iconic Muscle

He confesses that he’s happy that Zack got it because Zack enjoys driving a lot and is utilizing the car right now for fast autocross competitions.

Zack explains that he chose this car because of its appearance and because it was already a race car when he bought it in 2019. He enjoys racing this car and is proud to be the only person his age with a vintage 1968 Corvette. The car’s original yellow paint pairs perfectly with the black hardtop and paint scheme added by Craig.

Host Lou believes it gives the car a RacerX look. Zack’s livery and stickers help to amplify the vintage racer look even further.

When asked if he could remember any special thrills or chills in the 1968 Corvette, Craig reveals that he once blew up the engine on a straightway at Elkhart Lake. With that in mind, the host suggests a test drive of this high-powered classic.

Zack’s Corvette is powered by a 350 CI V8 engine with a 4-speed manual transmission that offers a 450 HP maximum output. Zack says that during road races, he typically travels at a pace of about 140 mph. Before they take the sports vehicle for a journey, host Lou asks Zack to start the engine and listens to the thunderous roar of the side pipes.
