For sale in our St. Louis showroom is a beautifully restored 1967
Corvette Coupe. This Corvette is powered by a numbers matching L71
427 big block with 435 horsepower! The L71 gave you 11.1
compression, a high lift solid lifter camshaft and three two barrel
carburetors. This engine had the highest horsepower rating you
could order in 1967 and remained the highest available until the
Z06 debuted in 2006. There were other engines options that were
more powerful like the infamous L-88, but that was for the most
part a store bought race car and was rated at 430 horsepower to try
and deter the unaware as they were nasty machines that needed a lot
of careful attention behind the wheel. With the L-71 rated at 435
and less expensive than the L-88, that was the box to check. This
is a must have that is optioned very well! This will make for one
proud owner! This fine example is equipped with side exhaust, bolt
on cast aluminum wheels, Posi rear end, AM/FM radio and Redline
tires. During the restoration 15 years ago the car was repainted
Red with a Black Stinger to go with the black vinyl interior.
Originally the car was Marina Blue. What could be better than a
high compression, solid lifter Big Block with a 4-speed and side
pipes! This is an owner-dcoumented numbers matching vehicle. To
