What do you look for in the ultimate C2? Numbers-matching tri-power big block? Rare features? An awesome correct color combo? An award-worthy nut-and-bolt restoration? So when you see all of that and more on this stunning 1967 Chevrolet Corvette, you know you\'re looking at a Sting Ray for true connoisseurs.
Marina Blue is always a desirable color on a Chevrolet. It mixes a sophisticated style with the kind of flair that reminds us of the C2 Grand Sport racers. That\'s why we\'re pleased to see how radiant the paint is on this coupe. It received a full professional restoration in 2008 with an eye for both making it stunning and keeping it as close to factory as possible. It\'s the kind of work that gets you amazing body lines and mirror-like chrome to attract the crowds, and at the same time, this retains details like the factory bolts and date-correct glass to impress the car show judges. Plus, this just has the best performance details that came on these final-year C2s. We love the side pipes and redline tires. And the stinger hood finished in white makes this tropical blue car look like a full ocean wave.
Inside, the car flips the exterior color theme so now it\'s white with blue accents. It\'s one of the most stylish color combos available, and the restoration budget made sure it looks correct and amazing. Everything from the working clock to the weave of the carpet is impressive. And if you\'re an enthusiast, you\'ve already picked up on some ultra-desirable and rare features, like the radio delete and the headrests. When you sit behind the wood-grained steering wheel and grab the chrome shifter, the atmosphere instantly gets nostalgic. So while this one has been kept in collector condition, you know you\'re just going to love taking this Sting Ray out and making the needles dance on the speedo and tach.
The 427 cubic-inch motor is the one we all want in a Sting Ray. 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 overall the level of tidiness is just another reminder of how much respect this car commands. All the right details are in place, including the iconic triangle air grabber, GM Winters intake, and the correct triple set of Holley dual-barrel 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 numbers-matching Muncie M21 close-ratio four-speed manual transmission. The undercarriage photos prove how clean this coupe is over every inch, and you\'ll be putting a mirror under this one to show off the rare F41 sports suspension. Add in the Positraction rear end and four-wheel disc brakes, and you know this one was built to be the all-around performance star of it day.
Complete with restoration photos, Chevrolet produced less than 3,800 Corvettes with the celebrated L71 in \'67. And that number has only gone down significantly over the last half-century. So if you want a true rare big block collector Corvette, now is the time to act. Call today!!!
