For Sale: 1967 Chevrolet Corvette in Morgantown, Pennsylvania

Vehicle Description

1967 Chevrolet Corvette Roadster

Sting Ray (two words) was first used on the 1963 Corvette and remained throughout the C2 generation. The C3 debuted in 1968 without the Sting Ray name, but it reappeared on the fenders of the 1969 model as one word, Stingray. It would remain there until 1976.

For consignment, from an ultra-passionate consignor who got plenty of enjoyment from this Corvette, even searching for it originally, was a very selective process prior to choosing this particular one. This car is sporting most of its original paint, original interior, and chrome. It has a new convertible top, and was purchased by the consignor at Klick Lewis Chevrolet out of Palmyra, PA. An interesting side note: the original top was put into storage in the owner's upstairs. Time passed, and the room was renovated, and they drywalled right around the top! It is still in the renovated room, offers were made to pay for a contractor to come in and get the top, but the original owners refused. So somewhere someone will purchase a house with an original 1967 convertible top within the walls! Add in some niceties such as a placard with some history of the car, the chassis service and overhaul manuals, original owner's manual, advertising brochures, radio and jacking instructions and last but not least the warranty booklet and ever so important Protect-o-Plate. What more could a Corvette aficionado ask for?

Exterior
Marlboro Maroon, (Red), which I can add is mostly the original paint on this car. Showing off with a black "Stinger" big block hood scoop, shark-like "gills" as side intakes on the front quarter panel, and showroom chrome. A factory optioned side piped car, they just add gleam to the rockers. The shark nosed and pointy rear are classic in this Zora Duntov influenced designed car. Chromed bumpers are split and looking great. Ultra clean wheels with deep dish trim are wrapped by thin line Goodyear bias ply tires all around. The new white canvas convertible top was also installed as the original top is still in the drywall enclosure in that renovated room! Also, this car comes with a body matching hard top with a beautifully curved rear glass. A few faults, some overspray from a previous repair where the owner lost the car and damaged the right rear bumper and splash guard.

Interior
Keeping notes, this meticulous owner even documented when he first laid eyes on the car! Along with the salesman and a few gripes he had to the fit and finish which was settled by the dealership. Pristine black leather buckets sit in front of a dual "eyebrow cowling" dash which includes perfect condition embedded gauges on the driver's side, and a curved glove box on the passenger. The odometer reads an amazing 22,838 miles which are confirmed. This speedo and the other instruments flank a center vertical pillar that houses a large clock, airflow knobs and a vertically mounted Corvette AM/FM radio. Moving downward and between the seats, the console houses a factory chromed knob topped shift lever. Fronting the dash is the original steering wheel that is covered in lacquered teak. Bomber style low back buckets have aged nicely, and float within like new black carpet which covers the floors, and the rear storage area for the top and some extras.

Drivetrain
The owners notes describe that after a few months the engine developed a knock. Back to the dealership it went where they tore down the engine and discovered the number 2 cylinder wall was grooved from a bad piston. So, this car has a 1968 427ci V8. A single 4-barrel carburetor is on top to feed it however this is also a replacement and is no longer correct for the car. The intake codes out as original and correct as does the numbers matching Muncie M20 4 speed manual transmission with a new clutch plate and throwout bearing. A 3.55 numbers matching Positraction rear is spinning the rear tires.

Undercarriage
An extremely clean, even sporting a shine in most areas, undercarriage, is seen all underneath this car. All looks like new with disc brakes all around, and independent suspension. Rockers and floor pans are very solid and barely even have road dirt on them.

Drive-Ability
This car fired right up but we were very careful not to put too much clocking on the odometer due to the low miles. Also, the tires are very old, (from the 1980's), when our owner has stored the car until very recently. All was working and it really is a wonderful car with a great back story.

The passion and pride of ownership this consigner set out to produce his perfect vision of the '67 Vette. Some minor parts were replaced or repaired over the years, then some time in climate controlled storage, a 1968 engine due to a warranty issue, a new convertible top, the additional a hardtop, a big block hood, and other small items in the attention to detail department. All original parts have been retained, but honestly the way this car shows and goes, I would not change a thing. Why mess with perfection? Also, I have a call into two more contractors to go get that top! The notes are a good read and reflect a passionate owner.
