1967 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible
Stingrays are commonly found in the shallow coastal waters of
temperate seas. They spend the majority of their time inactive,
partially buried in sand, often moving only with the sway of the
tide. When they are inclined to move, most stingrays swim by
undulating their bodies like a wave; others flap their sides like
wings. The tail may also be used to maneuver in the water, but its
primary purpose is protection. When swimming under duress, they can
propel themselves incredibly fast and nimble through the water.
Here we see a 1967 Corvette with the "stinger hood". Sporting a low
low 16,303 actual miles, an upgraded and consignor-stated 5 year
old 383ci stroker V8, and a respray in Butternut Yellow it has the
classic Sting Ray look. Nimble, very fast, and the look from 1967,
Harley Earl's team was definitely at the top of their game, and
this car is a shining example of it.
Butternut Yellow painstakingly applied shows beautifully and is
definitely the deep end of the pool as to paint quality. A black
painted accenting was applied over the hood and adds a nice
contrast on the stinger style hood and scoop and stinger stripe is
on this car. Wonderful to the ear and eyes, the factory side pipes
are present, and add a nice contrast to the split front and rear
chrome bumpers. A new black convertible top has been put on and
works flawlessly. On all 4 corners are snappy 15-inch rally wheels
wrapped by thin whitewall rubber.
Righteous and quite possibly original for this interior with
showroom looking door panels covered in stunning black and
spattered with perfect chrome, you are stepping into greatness.
Slipping inside we are now in black heaven, with the dual cowl dash
in front one side sporting the instrument cluster which is very
clean and has a black surround. Under the passenger cowl is the
glovebox which is aluminum faced and has a pristine black surround.
A crack free padded dash top frames all this from above. Sitting in
a perfect sea of black carpet, are the 2 bomber style leather
buckets covered in black. There are only minor wear folds on these
chairs. Running up the center is a console in black, housing the
chromed ball topped shift lever wrapped in a rubber boot. A black V
pillar rises vertically from this console and meets the cowls. This
pillar has the vertical on its side radio which is the factory
original AM/FM unit. Directly above the radio are some knobs and
the clock. A s[ealer box is installed in the rear storage area and
the carpeting back there shows some minor fading.
A flip of the hood and we gaze upon an orange blocked and headed
engine with a consignor stated 383ci of displacement. An Edelbrock
intake manifold and 4bbl carburetor sits atop to feed the necessary
fossils and air to this mill. Chevrolet badged valve covers, and a
chrome air cleaner assembly round out this stroker mill. A 4-speed
Muncie M20 manual transmission is on back and sends power to an AN
stamped 3.55 Positraction rear axle
A light peppering of slight surface rust is seen in various areas
on the suspension, but all are unremarkable and structurally sound
steel persists. Floor pans and rockers are all rust free and we see
independent coil springs upfront, and an independent rear with a
transverse leaf spring on back. Disc brakes are all around and of
course the exhaust piping leading to the side pipes is all
excellent with only minor surface rust.
Not only is this car a real looker it's a cooker too! It fired
right up, and those side pipes are a melodious tune for any
motor-head or Corvette aficionado. Off to the test track where it
has grand acceleration, excellent bias free stopping, and smooth
easy clutch shifting. All functions were working splendidly during
our drive, and I couldn't get enough of the top-down auditory bliss
from the side pipes.
Just a stunner with its design that in this writer's mind can only
be eclipsed by the 63 Split Window, but this is a very close
second. Just beautifully done and who cares if it's not numbers
matching, it is a newer engine, good solid transmission and has
plenty of reliability built into the drivetrain of this mid 1960
Mitchell masterpiece. Go ahead, make your day!
