Firstly, it's almost a given that any Corvette enthusiast will name
the '67 Sting Ray as THE most desirable Corvette to own. Why? Big
block C2 Corvettes are the blue chip material investors want. They
are, and will likely remain, highly desirable. This astonishing
Silver Pearl C2 coupe has the ultimate Tri-Power 427 and a Muncie
4-speed transmission combo. And speaking of body color, well,
anyone can own a red Corvette. Step away from the pack. This IS the
centerpiece for a serious collector.
Approaching this car you'll immediately recognize this "shark fin"
Vette as a collectors dream. The fiberglass panels are finished by
craftsmen who made sure the Silver Pearl lacquer complimented their
skilled workmanship. Each panel gap is exactly as you'd expect.
Each chromed piece brilliantly shines. A glance down reveals the
correct stainless side pipes which are equipped with traditional
finned heat shields. And not far away in each corner resides the
classic 15 inch 'turbine' aluminum wheels which still have the
original Firestone Super Sports!
Lifting the stinger hood up reveals all the glory of that wonderful
General Motors power plant. You'll notice the bright and familiar
Chevy orange which coats the valve covers, block and oil pan. But
the real excitement comes from a fully rebuilt and detailed 427
cubic inch Tri-Power V8 with the correct casting number 3904351
which is indicative for 1967 model year. This high performance L71
takes air in through the chromed and correctly detailed cleaner
where three Holley 2-barrel carburetors are nestled atop of an
aluminum Winter intake. Further back is the correct transistor
ignition where sleeved wires curve over the exhaust manifold. A
sharp eye will notice the correctly shrouded fan and tower clamps
The star of the show under this Vette is a correct, tried and true
Muncie 4-speed manual transmission. Everything looks factory fresh
including the fiberglass floor tubs. But look around, everything is
fully restored from the double A-arm front and independent rear
sports suspension, to the transverse rear spring and factory paint
markings. Of course, all correctly finished classics include a new
gasoline tank and this is no different. But as a bonus, we have the
original gas tank which includes the ORIGINAL TANK STICKER! Very
Inside the cockpit is as fresh as the rest. The seat fabric, dash,
door panels, head liner, and carpet are all in factory new
condition. Have a seat inside. Grip the fully restored Corvette
Rally wheel and notice the wooden framed wheel around the brilliant
C2 Corvette cross flag horn button. Then glance down the waterfall
designed center column to the AM/FM radio which welcomes you to the
beautifully chromed shifter that awaits your next move. And this
highly optioned unit includes power windows and air conditioning!
Lastly, this Corvette was expertly restored by Mike Mancini and his
crew of American Muscle Car Restorations. Virtually all OE parts
were used in restoration. No expense was spared, including $35k on
the 5 RPO N89 Starburst Aluminum wheels and red line tires. The
results of Mancini's meticulous attention to detail and impeccable
workmanship speaks for itself. In 2016, at Muscle Car And Corvette
Nationals (MCACN), it was judged by some of the most highly
respected Corvette judges in the world as awarded Concours Gold,
scoring 996 out of 1000 points and Celebrity Pick Award. And why
not? This is believed to be the highest optioned '67 427/435 coupe
ever built. If it is a blue-chip investment quality Corvette you
are after, this is a worthy centerpiece of any collection.
At the Motor Car Group, we're enthusiasts first. We want you to
enjoy your new car from the minute it's delivered and the trailer
door drops. Before a car leaves our shop, it's gone through
comprehensively, both visually and mechanically. We do more than
just kick the tires, though: We road test (if the weather permits
us here in Cleveland!) and polish it inside and out.
We're proud of our inventory and do our best in describing each
example as accurately as possible. As with all classic cars, it can
be difficult to know the true miles and history. Further, what one
person sees is a gem, another person might not. So before making an
investment, we encourage you to hire the services of a private
inspector for a third party opinion. After all, we want you to be
happy with your car for years to come!
No matter where you'd like your car shipped to, let us make the
arrangements. We've shipped cars all over the world. Delivering
your new ride in an enclosed carrier is nothing new for us. We'd be
honored to arrange all the logistics for you! Every car we sell,
from Sunday drivers through the rarest exotics, is meant to be
driven-get out there!
If you have any questions before, during or after the sale, do not
hesitate to contact us. It's what we're here for! Call us at (440)
914-0000, write to us at [email protected]
