The 1967 Corvette Sting Ray was the last Corvette of the second
generation, and five years of refinements made it the best of the
line. Although it was meant to be a redesign year, its intended
successor the C3 was found to have some undesirable aerodynamic
traits. Duntov demanded more time in the wind tunnel to devise
fixes before it went into production.
Changes for 1967 were modest: Five smaller front fender vents
replaced the three larger ones, and flat-finish rockers sans
ribbing conferred a lower, less chunky appearance. New was a single
backup light, mounted above the license plate. The previous models'
wheel covers gave way to slotted six-inch Rally wheels with chrome
beauty rings and lug nuts concealed behind chrome caps. Interior
alterations were modest and included revised upholstery, and the
handbrake moved from beneath the dash to between the seats. The
convertible's optional hardtop was offered with a black vinyl
cover, which was a fad among all cars at the time. With potential
buyers anticipating the car's overdue redesign, sales for the Sting
Ray's final year totaled 22,940, down over 5,000 units from 1966
results. That's what makes a nice '67 a rare find!
This example is a beautifully restored car in prime condition for
both weekend fun and any event you would want to go to. The
exterior is painted rally red with, of course, a black stinger
stripe on the hood. The black vinyl hard top is in great condition,
as is the black soft top. The hard top is a rare find, especially
in good condition, and is said to be original to this car. Finding
exterior defect on this Corvette is quite a challenge!
Under the hood sits a Tri-Power Chevrolet 427 V8; quite possibly
the most desirable choice of engine for these cars. When dialed in
and set up properly, a Tri-Power 427 'Vette is a force to be
reckoned with. This car runs, drives, and sounds amazing-just like
a Corvette should. We simply cannot stress what a smooth runner
this car is, and it fires right up every time! The engine bay is
clean and tidy with lots of new parts and chrome goodies. The 427
is hooked ddup to a close ration M-21 4-speed transmission and the
original Posi-Trac rear end. This car is also equipped with power
steering and power disc brakes.
The interior is nearly immaculate, and is in completely stock form
aside from the subtle addition of kick panel speakers; a necessity
for anyone wanting to cruise with some classic tunes! The original
wood steering wheel is the perfect accent against the black, and
the AM/FM radio is perfect to pair with the speakers. The black
leather is all in great condition, and all normal wear items are as
well. The condition of the interior alone speaks for the quality
restoration this car received!
