For Sale: 1967 Chevrolet Corvette in Charlotte, North Carolina


Vehicle Description

We've featured some amazing Corvette pro-tourers over the years. And this LS7-powered drop-top is the latest in a long line of metal that seems to come in, spend one week being universally admired, and disappear to a new home. By definition, pro-touring cars are virtually irresistible because they combine everything great about modern performance with everything loved in vintage style. And who doesn't enjoy cruising a classic that mixes the best attributes of old school Detroit muscle with the killer performance of modern American icons? A professionally built head turner that delivers on every level, this sweet, magazine-featured Sting Ray is the kind of car you simply CAN'T ignore. It wraps a custom chassis, a modern transmission and seven liters of Chevrolet Performance V8 in a tasteful restoration that oozes the style and class which made second-generation Corvettes the stuff of legend. If you're looking for an impressive collector car that'll fare well on the road AND at the show, check out this awesome Chevy!


The beneficiary of a $297K nut-and-bolt restoration that was completed by marque experts at Schwartz Performance, this awesome Sting Ray looked right at home on the cover of Vette Magazine. Naturally, the car's professional build is founded on a solid, well-aligned body. That sculpted fuselage reflects rich Charcoal two-stage that's highlighted by a glossy Stinger Stripe. And today, after a short stint in the RK Motors Private Collection, this top notch drop-top rolls as a spectacular piece of iconic American muscle that's detailed to better-than-new standards.

Given its dramatic lines, ornamentation could have easily ruined the C2's presence. Thankfully, Chevrolet did a great job of placing form over function and keeping brightwork to a minimum. At the front of this Vette, quality Detroit Speed doors twirl Euro-spec headlights above polished bumpers, a stainless-trimmed grille and amber parking lamps. Behind those lights, a requisite cross-flag emblem draws the eye to a stylish Stinger Hood, which plants modern "427" scripts in front of polished frames, Detroit Speed wipers and pristine glass that's capped by tight canvas. At the sides of that hood, a louvered profile centers polished handles and familiar bowtie mirrors between Schwartz-widened fenders and Schwartz-widened quarters. And those mirrors reflect two more polished bumpers, which frame factory taillights, polished tag trim, a prominent Sting Ray emblem and a color-keyed fuel filler.


Given this pro-touring Vette's aspirations of world-class performance, throwing a chrome dress-up kit on a vintage 427 simply wasn't an option. While old school big blocks are awesomely raw beasts, they tend to be more machete than scalpel. That's why Schwartz decided to dial up their friends at Chevrolet Performance and order a brand new LS7 crate engine. Twisting 505 SAE-certified horsepower into 470 lb./ft. of torque, the lightweight 427 rumbling between this classic's sinuous fenders is a 21st century testament to the bowtie division's enduring small block. Founded in GM's very successful C6 racing program, the brutal mill utilizes a forged crank, titanium rods and hypereutectic pistons to flat out whip pretty much anything with four wheels. At the front of the block, a short air tube funnels a perfect amount of oxygen between a front-mount filter element and a GM-supplied throttle body. That wind mixes with fuel in a composite intake, on its way to CNC-ported cylinder heads that are finished with lightweight titanium valves. Those valves get bumped by a GM hydraulic roller cam that, thanks to quality AC Delco plug wires, helps create stout 11 to 1 compression. Immediately following combustion, spent gases roar through factory manifolds. Charge comes courtesy of a polished alternator that, along with a polished AC compressor, spins a billet March accessory drive. A tilted Be Cool radiator fronts two SPAL electric puller fans. Friction is kept to a minimum thanks to dry-sump lubrication. And items like braided fluid lines, carbon fiber fuel rail covers and a Baer master cylinder enhance the car's serious, Satin Black engine bay.


Park this Sting Ray on a lift and you'll find a polished and powder-coated Schwartz Performance chassis that's finished with RideTech coils, RideTech shocks and both front and rear sway bars. The stout LS7 twists a stout Tremec T56 Magnum 6-speed, which spins a mirrored differential. Turns come courtesy of power rack-and-pinion steering. Smooth and solid stops are provided by 6-piston Baer calipers, which squeeze 14-inch drilled and slotted rotors. A high performance fuel pump, rated to 700 horsepower, milks a steady stream of fossils from a stainless fuel tank. An awesome soundtrack rumbles through shielded side-pipes. Power meets the pavement through your choice of: forged Schott C7 wheels and fresh Michelin Pilot Sports or Forgeline DE3P wheels with their own set of Michelin Pilot Sports.


Slip in to this roadster's monochromatic cockpit and settle on virtually new high grade leather buckets. A dual-cowl dash hangs clean Dakota Digital VHX telemetry between American Autowire wiring, Vintage Air Gen IV climate control and modern Antique Automobile audio. At the base of that dash, a leather-wrapped console frames a leather-wrapped shifter. And a tilting column spins a leather half-wrapped rim around a billet, Bowtie-branded steering wheel.

Who doesn't want a 1967 Corvette that's better than new in virtually every way? Thanks to its fresh restoration, this choice drop-top retains authentic Motor City feel while adding modern components to an already awesome ownership experience. If you're in the market for a storied classic that's fully detailed and ready to hit the road, welcome to the Chevrolet family!
