What do the numbers 24, 72 and 96 have in common? Those are the totals, IN HOURS, that our last three 1967 Chevrolet Corvette pro-touring cars sat on our RK Motors Charlotte showroom floor. And for good reason: theyre some of the meanest, most exclusive and most enjoyable muscle cars on the planet! This 1967 pro-touring roadster is a top notch, no compromises C2 that will unquestionably draw a crowd wherever it goes. Despite its exceptionally well done modifications, which include a modern 521 horsepower V8, a strip ready driveline and a massaged fiberglass body, none of the pure, basic goodness of its beloved design has been compromised. And best of all, that fresh technology provides an athleticism and performance envelope that will embarrass pretty much anything on the road. If youre one of those enthusiasts who enjoys being at the pinnacle of style, the top of the leader board and the front of the car show, this world class pro-tourer is the car youve been dreaming of!

This slick C2 Sting Rays body is a never-been-hit 67 and, as you can tell, the very talented craftsmen at Corvette Restorations AZ treated it to a lot of time and some amazing fiberglass work. Even 45 years after it was launched, Larry Shinodas brilliant design still speaks for itself. And the cars only noteworthy modifications include a couple of bolt-ons that combine both form and function to create a more aggressive front clip, and massaged fenders which perfectly frame its massive wheels and tires. Unlike most concours restored Vettes, this Sting Ray features exceptional fit and finish which, with the cars bright paint, is definitely a design statement. And speaking of bright paint, the cars sinuous form has been bathed in a vivid coat of Enzo Ferrari Yellow urethane that shines just as bright as the day it left the spray booth. It may be true that theres no such thing as a perfect car; but this killer Corvette pro-tourer is about as close as you can get!

The cool thing about a pro-touring Corvette is that youre taking an already aggressive design and adding a ton of race-bred technology which elevates the cars personality and performance to a whole new level. Its kind of like rebuilding the Incredible Hulk with components from the Terminator to create one mean, ass kicking machine; and this 67 Sting Ray definitely looks the part! At the front of the car, a body-width stainless grille sits inside of show worthy stainless trim which is bordered by two chrome trimmed parking lights, a razor blade style chrome bumper and a custom molded chin spoiler. Above that grille a 1967-exclusive stinger hood, which has been detailed with a gloss black stripe and fresh chrome trim, rides in front of like-new glass that is cleared by bright stainless wipers, framed by excellent looking stainless trim and capped by a black Al Knoch top. Below that glass flared front fenders hang correct 1967-exclusive heat extractors in front of pristine bowtie mirrors, correct chrome door handles, satin black rocker trim and custom black side pipes that are complete with stainless heat shields. Behind that glass, a full stainless roll bar is centered between super-wide flared rear fenders and a smooth rear decklid that is complete with both a body-matched fuel filler and a pristine Corvette Sting Ray emblem. And at the back of the car, two centered reverse lamps combine with four traditional Corvette tail lights to illuminate a chrome trimmed tag bracket and two more pristine, razor blade style bumpers.

While the exterior of this awesome yellow roadster provides the kind of radical good looks you might find encased in velvet ropes on the show field, its what lives underneath the cars functional stinger hood that separates the beauty queens from the road warriors. Professionally built by Arizona Speed and Marine in Phoenix, Arizona, this Sting Rays 6.0 liter LS2 Generation IV V8 utilizes an aluminum block, a Competition camshaft and high performance heads that are equipped with severe duty push rods and titanium retainers to churn out a super car killing 521 horsepower! At the top of that engine, a custom fabricated cowl induction system funnels wind from a reusable filter element to a traditional LS2 high-flow intake manifold via a custom fabricated chrome air tube. Once that air is present and accounted for, a GM electronic fuel injection system jets dino blood through stainless fuel rails to high pressure fuel injectors, and GM factory coils shoot sparks into high performance MSD plug wires. The resultant high compression combustion is cooled by a Be Cool 700 horsepower Super Street aluminum radiator which sends water past two 11 inch puller fans and a polished overflow tank to fresh hoses and a body-matched water pump. And the subsequent spent gases are evacuated through a pair of custom fabricated long tube headers which flow straight into the cars custom fabricated side pipes. In front of the engine a modern serpentine system, which has been fully outfitted with chrome pulleys and chrome brackets, spins both a chrome alternator and polished AC compressor; and behind the engine, a straight, unaltered firewall hangs a factory wiper motor next to a modern brake booster and master cylinder. The hot small block wears body-matched fuel rail covers and a thick coat of body-matched high temp engine paint which looks much better than the black on silver color combo of factory fresh LS2s. And a full array of details such as polished stainless lines, high quality braided hoses, chrome hood hardware and even a chrome oil cap provide a finished appearance that most modern engines simply cant achieve.

Throw this Corvette up on a lift and the first thing youll notice is four bright yellow brake calipers that squeeze four equally impressive slotted brake rotors. The second thing youll notice is a bright yellow scatter shield thats bolted to a Tremec TKO600 5-speed manual transmission. Those yellow calipers, which are four piston Corvette branded C5 units up front and four piston Delco Moraine branded C3 units out back, provide excellent stops and modern car cornering thanks to a heavy duty Hydroboost brake system. And that precise transmission sends all the small blocks massive power from carbon fiber clutch packs to a new Fast-Corvette differential thats equipped with pebble crushing 3.70 gears. Of course, those brakes couldnt sufficiently corner without the cars modern power rack and pinion steering and fresh Bilstein shocks. And that rear end couldnt sufficiently hook up without the cars Vette Brakes and Products fiberglass transverse rear leaf spring and suspension kit. The cars satin black floor and frame are virtually spotless; and everything from its fresh stainless steel fuel tank to its monoleaf front suspension is fully finished, superbly restored and displays very little use. And all this top notch Corvette hardware rides on a spectacular set of 18 inch Foose Nitrous Thrust wheels which follow 245/40 front Falken Azenis performance radials with 275/35 rear Falken Azenis performance radials.

Open this Corvettes lightweight fiberglass doors and youll find an OEM-quality standard vinyl interior which has been tastefully updated with both stylish trim components and modern technology. At the center of the car firm bucket seats, which were completely rebuilt during the recent restoration, ride between a six-point roll bar thats bolted to the cars frame and like-new black carpet thats sandwiched between color-keyed Sting Ray floor mats and Dynamat Dynaliner sound deadening ...For more information please call the seller.
