Ermine White w/Blue interior, L79 327/350hp, 4-spd. manual transmission.
The ’67 is widely considered one of, if not the best of the 1st 3 generation Corvettes ever to roll out of St. Louis. The story of the last of the mid-years is well known by most Corvette afficionados . . .
Anticipation was high for the new Shark bodied cars that were originally scheduled to be introduced as ’67’s. However, they weren’t quite ready for primetime, so their release was pushed back to ’68. Because of this, the mid-year body was carried over one more year. Thus making it the best it could be! So, how do you make an already great Corvette even greater? Well, at first glance, the ’67 wasn’t that much different (not that it needed to be!) than the ’66. But, there were changes. Some subtle and some very noticeable! On the outside, the side “gills” were revised with a rectangular grate. And if you ordered a big block, you got the legendary “Stinger” hood. Inside, the hand brake was relocated to its proper place between the seats. And under the hood, a dual master cylinder became standard equipment.
The beautiful ’67 represented here is a rare find! It’s got what we think is one of the best engines ever offered in a Corvette; the L79 327ci small block putting out 350hp. It’s backed up by a 4-spd. manual transmission. But, what makes this mid-year particularly rare and very desirable is its factory air conditioning! Not to mention the N14 side mounted exhaust system. The car has been extensively restored and very well cared for over the years! It’s a blast to drive year round!
