What do you look for in the ultimate C2? Numbers-matching tri-power
big block? Rare features? An awesome correct color combo? An
award-worthy nut-and-bolt restoration? So when you see all of that
and more on this stunning 1967 Chevrolet Corvette, you know you're
looking at a Sting Ray for true connoisseurs.
Marina Blue is always a desirable color on a Chevrolet. It mixes a
sophisticated style with the kind of flair that reminds us of the
C2 Grand Sport racers. That's why we're pleased to see how radiant
the paint is on this coupe. It received a full professional
restoration in 2008 with an eye for both making it stunning and
keeping it as close to factory as possible. It's the kind of work
that gets you amazing body lines and mirror-like chrome to attract
the crowds, and at the same time, this retains details like the
factory bolts and date-correct glass to impress the car show
judges. Plus, this just has the best performance details that came
on these final-year C2s. We love the side pipes and redline tires.
And the stinger hood finished in white makes this tropical blue car
look like a full ocean wave.
Inside, the car flips the exterior color theme so now it's white
with blue accents. It's one of the most stylish color combos
available, and the restoration budget made sure it looks correct
and amazing. Everything from the working clock to the weave of the
carpet is impressive. When you sit behind the wood-grained steering
wheel and grab the chrome shifter, the atmosphere instantly gets
nostalgic. So while this one has been kept in collector condition,
you know you're just going to love taking this Sting Ray out and
making the needles dance on the speedo and tach.
The 427 cubic-inch motor is the one we all want in a Sting Ray.
That's why investors and drivers get truly excited to see a
numbers-matching L71 big block like this one. The big V8 is dressed
properly with Chevy Orange on the block and valve covers, and the
overall the level of tidiness is just another reminder of how much
respect this car commands. All the right details are in place,
including the iconic triangle air grabber, GM Winters intake, and
the correct triple set of Holley dual-barrel carburetors. This was
rated at 435 horsepower right from the factory, and so it's truly a
monster powerhouse. And you have complete control over this
ultimate big block and its thunderous soundtrack thanks to the
numbers-matching Muncie M21 close-ratio four-speed manual
transmission. The undercarriage photos prove how clean this coupe
is over every inch, and you'll be putting a mirror under this one
to show off the rare F41 sports suspension. Add in the Positraction
rear end and four-wheel disc brakes, and you know this one was
built to be the all-around performance star of it day.
Complete with restoration photos, Chevrolet produced less than
3,800 Corvettes with the celebrated L71 in '67. And that number has
only gone down significantly over the last half-century. So if you
want a true rare big block collector Corvette, now is the time to
act. Call today!!!
