1967 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible
What do you look for in the ultimate C2? Numbers-matching big block? Rare? A great and correct color combo? Low mileage? So when you see all of this and more on this restored 1967 Chevrolet Corvette convertible with the triple-deuce L71 under the hood, you know you're looking at a droptop for true connoisseurs.
A red Corvette always makes us happy because that's the iconic color, and this Sting Ray is one of the most iconic shapes in the Corvette's 65-year history. Plus, the factory-correct Marlboro Maroon always has an extra hint of sophistication it radiates in its first impression. And speaking of radiates, you'll immediately recognize the quality of this paint when you let the daylight hit this sunshine-friendly droptop. Plus, complete and pristine chrome bumpers and all the correct badging only add to this car's award-worthy shine. But the true value comes from the way all the panels line up with precision it's the perfect way to showcase how much was invested in the restoration. But the presentation is more than just premium. It never forgets that the Corvette is America's sports car, and those side pipes will always announce your power superiority. Plus, the big block stinger hood is not only a timeless sign of serious power underneath, but also the cool black streak is a great match for the tight-fitting black folding roof. So this Sting Ray striking even when the top is in place.
As much as we like the look with the roof in place, the top-down presentation is even nicer. That's because you rarely get to see a C2 with its correct saddle vinyl interior anymore. And the look of the rich tan against the deep maroon is a European level of attractiveness. And because all of these are the factory correct colors, you know whoever ordered this convertible had good taste. In fact, they liked it so much that they preserved this vehicle to average less than 1,300 miles annually. Between this conservation mixed with the right investment is why the bucket seats, dash, center console, and carpeting are all a high-quality experience. And this one all the right features, like power windows and the correct AM/FM radio. The wood-rimmed three-spoke steering wheel, steel stick shift, and large speedo and tach are all part of a package designed to excite your senses the moment you get into the driver's seat.
The 427 cubic-inch motor is the one we all want in a Sting Ray, and if you're not looking to spend a $1 million, then the L71 is exactly what you want for power. 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 level of tidiness is just another reminder of how much respect this car has received from day one. Plus, there's a nice bit of flash with the correct ignition shield and chrome air cleaner with 427 decals. And best of all, we all know that underneath that triangle topper lives the ultra-desirable triple set of dual Holley 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 year-correct Muncie M21 close-ratio four-speed manual transmission. And while the low mileage and great features make this a fine collectable, we know you won't be able to resist the open road thanks to features like power steering, four-wheel disc brakes, and the fully-independent sports suspension.
Complete with owner's manual, Chevrolet only produced 3,754 Corvettes with the L71 in '67, and that number has only gone down significantly over the last half-century. So if you love special vintage machines, now is the time to act. Call today!!!
