Seven Hills Motorcars is very proud to offer this absolutely stunning and completely frame-off restored 1967 Corvette Sting Ray Convertible with the high performance L71 427ci/435hp big block engine, 4-Speed transmission, side pipes, power steering, power brakes, and redline tires. The car is finished in the gorgeous and highly desirable color combination of Rally Red (974) over Red Leather (408). Red/Red is an iconic on this body style Corvette and for many years has been considered to be the most sought-after color. This is the correct color combination according to the codes on the trim tag pictured in this ad.

There are close-up photos in this ad of the VIN stamp on the engine block, engine assembly date, engine block casting date, VIN tag, trim tag, VIN stamp on the transmission main case, transmission assembly date, transmission main case casting number, transmission tail housing casting number, transmission side cover casting number, intake casting number, and the carburetor part numbers and date codes for all three carburetors for any potential buyer or professional to analyze.

According to previous owner this car was treated to a complete "nut and bolt" restoration from D & A Corvette Restorations in Illinois. D & A Corvette is highly respected in the Corvette community and is one of the most knowledgeable and best in the industry for Corvette restoration. This 1967 has been used sparingly since the restoration and the odometer shows just 5,298 miles. The previous owner said that the odometer was reset to zero when the car was restored. The previous owner is a very close friend of the dealership. He is a hardcore car enthusiast with many other Corvettes, Ferraris, and other classics in his collection.

This Corvette looks utterly stunning, runs terrifically, and is an absolutely thrilling driver with the 427 cubic inch engine and 435 horsepower that is ready to be enjoyed. There is no way a similar Corvette could be built or restored for anything near our asking price. 1967 is considered to be the best year for the Corvette and this 427ci435hp in Red/Red is the ultimate example of that model year. The market on C2 Corvettes is hot right now and on the rise, especially for premium and rare cars like this one; one could easily buy this car now and sell it for more than the purchase price in years to come. Please peruse all of the photos, video, numbers, and other information below to get a true sense of how exceptional this Corvette really is.

As a side note, this Sting Ray is not a dealer auction vehicle. Our Corvettes come from owners who expect their car to go to someone that will give the vehicle the same care and attention as they did. We invite and encourage you to examine the car in person or have the car inspected. Please take the time to scrutinize each picture. We photograph each vehicle to the greatest extent so you can feel confident about your purchase. If you have a question about the Corvette, just give us a call.

Exterior

The Rally Red exterior is in beautiful condition. As one can see in the photos the finish has dazzling gloss, deep shine, and smooth finish. The rally wheels are in excellent condition with a brilliant finish and no curb rash. The tires are Coker Classic redline radials with plenty of tread left. These tires offer the best of both worlds with the vintage look of the redlines, but the modern performance and handling of a radial. The chrome is in excellent condition with a bright finish and no cloudiness, scratches, or pitting. The convertible top looks in person as it does in the photos with no rips or frayed edges; there is a spot of wear on the lower section right behind the right window. The rear window is not yellowed or foggy. There is very light checking in the paint in certain spots, which was hard to even capture in the photos. As one can see in the many photos of the underside of the car, this Corvette is totally solid and looks great. The bottom of the car is exceptionally clean and correct with appropriate markings; the car looks nearly as good underneath as it is on top.

Interior

The Red Leather interior in this Sting Ray is in absolutely outstanding condition. The seats are in excellent shape with no split seams, rips, or excessive wear, only a small amount of wear in the typical spot on the driver's bolster. The seats are not worn in the typical area where the driver gets in and out. The carpet is also in good condition with no tears, rips, or holes. This includes the rear carpet, which is often neglected. The gauge faces are crisp and clean and the lenses are clear. The door panels are in terrific shape; there are no cracks in the typical spot where the driver's elbow sits. The door pulls are solid and intact. The dash and console look great with no cracks or sun fading. The original radio works and gets good reception. Most importantly the dash has never been cut or modified for an aftermarket installation. This Corvette has never been smoked in; there are no burns marks and no aroma of cigarettes at all.

Mechanical

This Corvette seems to be in great mechanical condition. This car is pure excitement out on the road. Please view the video to hear one of the best exhaust notes in the classic car industry, a big block Corvette engine with sidepipes. The car starts right away every time, runs well, and idles well. The car drives terrifically on the road and highway. In the video one can observe the car accelerating on the highway up to about 70mph, braking to stoplight, and going through some curves. Please note that there are no strange noises or vibrations and the car performs quite well overall. There is no blue smoke when starting or driving the car. The clutch feels good, the transmission is very tight, and does not pop out of gear. The brakes are responsive and do not pull to one side or the other. The engine runs cool and does not overheat. The gauge shows the engine makes great oil pressure. This Corvette has plenty of power and is exceptionally fast with the L71 427ci engine. Also, the engine compartment is beautifully clean, detailed, and correct as one can see in the photos.
The horn works as do all the exterior lights, interior lights, and wipers. The headlights go up and down properly, which is a very common problem on second generation Corvette. The complete headlight operation can be viewed in the video. The blower for heater does not always work. Not enough can be said as to how much of a pleasure it is to drive this car, especially with the 4-Speed, the extra power from the L71, the sound of the sidepipes, and the top down out on a beautiful day.

Overall Condition

Overall, this 1967 427c 435hp big block Corvette convertible is in marvelous condition. As stated above, there are photos in this ad of the VIN tag, trim tag, VIN stamp on the engine block, engine assembly date, engine block casting date, VIN stamp on the transmission main case, transmission assembly date, transmission main case casting number, transmission tail housing casting number, transmission side cover casting number, intake casting number, and the carburetor part numbers and date codes for all three carburetors for any potential buyer or professional to analyze. We cannot verify the authenticity or originally of these numbers or stampings, we are simply relaying what is on the car. This is truly an investment grade classic car. The value and market on second generation or "mid-year" Corvettes has always been solid, ...for more information please contact the seller.
