My 1967 Corvette coupe. It is a verified California “black plate”, installed SMOG equipment, Corvette coupe. Besides a fresh paint job, it is very original. Numbers matching 327, 300 HP, power glide. It was painted this summer by Waddell's Customs in Essex, Maryland. It is the correct rally red done in base coat/clear coat. The car was stripped down and prepped as a corvette should be painted. It was painted doors off, hood off, glass out. This Waddell's paint job is one of the best I've seen. After painting, it was clay bar'd then hand-sanded with 2000 then 3000 and then buffed to a brilliant shine. It is one of the best paint jobs I’ve seen. When the car was reassembled, all new badges, trim rings, door handles, mirror were replaced. Along with all new door seals, rubber, vent-wing seals and window fur was replaced. The bumpers have not been rechromed only because they were very nice as-is and it was 3-months wait time.
The interior of the car is about as original as it can be. Only the headliner and the front carpet have been replaced. The seats are in terrific shape with no tears, rips, scuffs or stains. The dash pads are also very nice with no breaks tor stains. The door panels show some signs of wear but after all they are 52 years old but they are still very nice and quite presentable with no breaks or tears, just some color wear.
As for the drive train, it has a number matching 327 with the matching 2-speed power glide transmission. The carburetor has been changed to an Eldebrock 600 CFM with electric choke but I still have the original Holley ready to reinstall. Everything else is original, including the California Smog equipment and accompanying “black” plates. New starter (AC Delco), new AC Delco battery and voltage regulator. Rebuilt original alternator and original air conditioning compressor changed over to R134a. The air blows ice cold. New brakes all the way around with AC Delco calipers, new front rotors and all new hoses. New U-joints for both drive shafts and new front and rear shocks. The steering under the wooden steering wheel is tight with no slop. When the gas tank was removed, drained and flushed, a new seal was installed between the filler tube and the tank. The engine compartment has been freshened up and detailed. The underside of the car is 100% rust free and in exceptional shape with no pitting or undercarriage damage. See photos. A complete new exhaust has also been installed.
This is a stand-tall car and ready to go. The headlight buckets work every time and the headlights have been properly adjusted. The car shifts correctly and idles around 1200. As for options, the car has power breaks, power steering, power windows (work smoothly) and factory air-conditioning. The dash console is clean and the gauges are clear and bright. A brand new set of red line radial tires from Coker mounted on the factory rally wheels make the ride perfect. Here is your chance to own a very nice 1967 corvette.
