Vehicle Description

1967 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible

DID YOU KNOW: Dick Guldstrand, Bob Bondurant, and Dick Yenko took a 1967 Corvette coupe with an L-88 427 ci engine to the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Dick Guldstrand set a new record speed of 171.5 mph on the Mulsanne straight. In the 13th hour, the engine failed, ending the race for the lone Corvette. While this bit of history is significant, what makes it all the more interesting is the backstory that goes with it. Because Guldstrand and Bondurant had arrived late in France and risked missing qualifying at the track, they instead decided to drive the L88 big-block Corvette racer from the airport near Paris directly to Me Lans for the 24-hour race - a drive that normally takes more than two hours to complete during normal driving conditions. This transcended the drivers - and the 1967 L88 Chevy Corvette - into "folk heroes" among the locals of La Sarthe, France.

For consignment, a car that will make the hair on a Corvette aficionado's neck stand up. A new 454ci V8 block which our consignor states has the original 427 internals, but no documentation exists to back this up so we will take his word for it. The car recently was stripped down to bare fiberglass and has a respray. This car is designed for the main showroom, and will have velvet ropes strung around it, but is definitely here for the taking, and looking but please no touching!

Exterior
The pointy shark- like lines of this beautiful body are just well aligned and bathed in Sunfire Yellow. A stinger hood with black paint to highlight it is seen in the center of said hood and rests comfortably between the front hidden headlight portion and the creased rounded front quarter tops. Another "crimp" if you will, is seen on the sides running through the tops of the flattened wheel wells, through the doors and on to the round topped rear quarters making the straight line extend through the rear wheel well. Shiny perfect split bumpers are in front and back, and a chromed bezeled round turn signal light is below. Side pipes with factory ribbed and punched guards hang from either rocker, and floating just above on the front quarter are some "gills" for venting the engine. A nicely trimmed front windshield supports a black canvas convertible top which shows some wear , but our consignor states it does not leak. There is also a fiberglass accessory hardtop for this car. You can drive it in colder weather. A shout to the rear glass on the hardtop and its wraparound style. More of the predator pointed look for the rear deck with dual round tail lighting on either side and more split bumpers below. 15-inch rally wheels are all around and shine to the fullest. Now that's a Sting ray Corvette! I just love this year's design. (Can you tell??!)

Interior
Black vinyl covers the door panels and there is plenty of chrome to go around here too with the round knob door actuator, chromed pull bar and wing and main window cranks. Inside perfectly presenting black bomber style buckets with low curved backs and covered in black vinyl frame the back of the driver's compartment. In front is the dual curved eyebrow dash, with drivers side sporting the gauge cluster containing all round gauges and some pulls and a black textured panel surrounding within the eyebrow. On the passenger's side is another eyebrow, this time housing the arched top glovebox with brushed aluminum door. In the center the dash falls gracefully downward and in this area we note the vertically mounted Delco AM/FM radio, several climate control knobs and a large chronograph clock in the center of this mid section. The console has the handbrake, a small storage glovebox and the metal chromed round knobbed gear shifter. Black carpeting floods the floors and has protective rubber ribbed cross flag embossed floor mats. In back of the buckets is another small black carpeted storage area, where the convertible top hides when in the down position.

Drivetrain
By the numbers and here we go!!! A 454ci V8, non-numbers matching, (circa 1977 according to casting date), with consignor stated 427ci factory internals and 427 heads. A trio of Holley 2-barrel carburetors sit atop of this mighty 454 and are correct for 1967. A correct aluminum intake is still on. On back is a non-original Muncie M20 that according to its numbers was made way earlier than the car was. On the back is a 3.55 Posi rear axle with an AZ62867 stamping code which is not original to this car. This is all completely restored with an orange/red GM block and valve covers, a triangular chromed air cleaner covering and supple hoses which are like new.

Undercarriage
A wonderful aging process in the form of some patina and road dirt with some slight fine surface rust. In front, independent coil springs and on back IRS with frame mounted differential unit, double universal jointed tubular axles, and transverse multi leaf springs. Disc brakes are mounted all around, and the exhaust goes to either side for the exhale.

Drive-Ability
It fired right up and ran swimmingly. We did not have it out long as it is fairly low original mileage we were reluctant to click a lot more on. When I did drive it though, it was near perfection. The clock was not keeping timeand the choke has been disconnected so I needed to give it a good warm up period, through which process it just sounded better and better. Praise to the side pipe gods! New brake hoses and calipers and the car is golden! Well it's yellow, but you get the drift!

Plenty of WOW factor here with a near perfect example of a 1967 427 Stinger hood side piped sports car. Everywhere you look is just fab including the mileage which is definitely original and title verified! All the right stuff in one package. SO what if it has a non original drivetrain? It goes like its namesake war ship!
