Whichever way you look at it the '67 Corvette is widely considered
not only the most popular of the 5 year run of 2nd generation
Corvettes. But also the best example of the breed.The irony is that
the production of the C2 Corvette was supposed to end with the '66
model. Anticipation was very high for the next-generation C3 which
was due to be introduced in the Fall of '66 as a '67. However the
car wasn't quite ready for prime time. So it was decided that the
run of C2's would extend one more year and the C3's would be
brought out as a '68 instead.At first glance a '67 small-block
Corvette doesn't look all that much different than a '65 or '66.
But as they say; "the devil is in the details". The most noticeable
difference is the revised side vents which were now more
rectangular. Moving to the back you'll notice the backup lights
(light) have been relocated into the body between the taillights.
The legendary Rally wheel was introduced as in '67 as standard
equipment with Bolt-on wheels being optional. And of course if you
decided you had to have a big block you got what many consider one
of the most beautiful "lids" ever placed on a Corvette (or any
other sports car); the Stinger hood!On the inside the seats were
slightly redesigned and offered headrests as an option for the
second year in a row. But the biggest and most practical change was
the relocation of the handbrake to the center console between the
seats. Under the hood the small block choices remained pretty much
a carryover from the previous year. But the big news was the new
L71 & L68 Tri-Power engines!There were no less than three different
Blue's to choose from in '67. All were very nicely paired to the
mid-years body design but to us Elkhart was one of the prettiest
shades of Blue ever offered on a Corvette! And the Teal Blue
interior was the perfect complement!This beautiful example has been
completely frame-off restored and features a matching #'s L79
327/350hp engine M20 4-spd transmission and a 3.55 Posi rear end.
Other options include; Tinted windshield Telescopic steering column
Vinyl covered hardtop Black soft top AM/FM radio Power steering and
Off-road exhaust. It's also an N.C.R.S. Top Flight Award winner!
