The ’60’s era sports and muscle cars were all about the freedom of choice! And Corvette was no exception!
Going into its last year of production in ’67, the second generation Corvette offered an amazing amount of options. Both in drivetrain and comfort and convenience items. From engines to air conditioning, you could almost “custom build” a new Corvette to your exact specifications!
The ’67 is widely recognized as the high-water mark in Corvette production up to that point. The irony is that this last mid-year wasn’t even supposed to exist! Production for the second generation Corvettes was due to end with the ’66 model. The new third generation cars, were supposed to be introduced as a ’67. However, the Sharks, as they became known were not quite ready for prime time that year, so production of the C2’s were carried over for one more year! They were also tweaked and refined even more than the previous year. And the results were . . . Magic! The ’67’s have become one of the most coveted Corvettes to ever come out of St. Louis. Especially the big block cars!
In ’67 you had no less than six engines and four transmissions to choose from. Starting with the base 327 small block with 300hp all the way up to the legendary and fire breathing L88 427! But within those extremes were a few real gems. One was the L68 427 with 400hp. This big block was essentially a 390hp with the Tri-Power carb setup. Thus giving it an additional 10hp. Only 2,101 L68’s were built in ’67, making it third only to the L88 (20 built) and L89 (16 built). Of course, adding certain unusual options could contribute to the rarity of your new Corvette, as well. Like air conditioning, for example.
The ’67 presented here is truly stunning! From its Ermine White exterior with Red Stinger to its Red interior with leather seats. Not only is the car beautiful, it’s also loaded with great options! Like the aforementioned L68 427/400hp big block engine, M21 close ratio transmission, air conditioning, AM/FM radio, power brakes, power steering, power windows, telescoping steering column, shoulder harnesses, side exhaust, and (reproduction) bolt-on wheels with Red line tires. The car has been beautifully frame off restored and is as great a driver as it is a looker! This is the dream ’67 you would build back in ’67! Comes with a file full of restoration receipts and other various paperwork.
