Big Banana: 1968 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible

We will never get tired of the madness of the 70s, which very often found one of its forms of expression in the extreme customization of cars.

Here it is no longer a question of “taste”, but only of observing a snapshot of those years represented by a 1968 Chevrolet Corvette roadster: it is certainly an excessive and showy car, but it gives the sensation of observing a full-size Hot Wheels: the The car was featured on the cover of Car Craft November 1975 but also featured in a two page color spread in the December 1976 issue of Motor Trend as well as on the cover of Car Freaks 1976.

The nickname of this car is “Big Banana”, and it is certainly not difficult to guess why. Other than the over the top looks, however we have to note that the car has been restored quite well: there are no very detailed photos but what you see looks perfect, including the engine compartment which looks very clean. If you want to be the protagonist at the next car show without spending a fortune, this is definitely a possible option. Find it for sale at $39,995 here in San Diego, CA.
