The Chevrolet Corvette is an American icon, much like the Ford Mustang or pickup truck. It is so deeply ingrained in our culture that they are nearly impossible to love. The second generation of Corvette, dubbed the C2, is what many of us picture as the quintessential classic Corvette, but the variations between model years were far more significant than most would believe. For 1967, the final year of the C2 Corvette, Chevrolet made a final series of changes that would make it the best of the best. It had the advantage of five years of refinement, and while its differences between 1966 and 1967 were rather subtle, it is easy to pick out the differences between an early C2 and a ’67. In addition to the mass of evolutionary changes over its lifecycle, the 1967 Corvette benefitted from five smaller front fender vents, a flat-finish rocker, a single refined rear backup light, slotted Rally wheels, revised upholstery, and a relocated handbrake. These changes resulted in a sleeker, more refined look for the final production year.
This stunning 1967 Chevrolet Corvette comes from long-term ownership and has been extensively refurbished. The Milano Maroon paint is newer, high-quality respray and looks absolutely flawless. It is complemented by a completely restored black interior with a brand new matching convertible top. The combination is truly striking, yet subtler than the more common Rally Red. The engine, a 350 horsepower 327 cubic inch V8, sends power through a factory 4-speed manual transmission and sends an intoxicating exhaust note through dual side pipes. The drive drives exceptionally well, being the perfect balance of reliable and thrilling. For the Corvette enthusiast, few examples have been as well cared for as this ’67.
