General Motors designer Harley Earl is credited with convincing GM to build a two-seat sports car for the American market.
Launched in 1953, the resulting Chevrolet Corvette quickly earned the mantle of “America’s Sport’s Car” and the model is still produced today.
1967 was the final year of the C2 Corvette “Stingray” and these are coveted among Corvette collectors as they were the most refined of the C2s.
The 1967 had the cleanest lines of the model run, much of the trim including script emblems and fender flags were removed. The front fenders had five smaller air vents in place of the three larger ones that appeared in 1965.
The handbrake was moved from under the dash to the center console and the passenger hand hold was removed from above the glove box – something that had been in the Corvette since 1958.
This is an immaculate 100 point restoration car that retains its original 327ci (350HP) engine - the highest HP rating for 1967.
The car comes with its original build sheet.
It has its original 4 speed gearbox, positraction rear end, beautiful black leather seats, correct factory markings and tags and both hard (original condition) and soft tops.
Restored to a standard such that all nuts, bolts, washers and screws are correct. All gauges and electrics work and the AM/FM radio is functional.
Cherished by its first owner for over 45 years, the car presents a tight ride, awesome exhaust note and sublime handling.
The restoration has been fully documented.
Outstanding opportunity to own a concourse standard, high horsepower Corvette.
