For the choice few that had the wherewithal to buy a new 1967 Corvette back in the day, it’s doubtful most really knew the significance of their purchase. This was to be the final year of production for the second generation, or “mid-years”, as the ’63-’67 models were known. And as was often the case, the last of the line turned out to be the best! But truth be told, the 1967 Corvette as we know it, wasn’t even supposed to exist in the first place!
Anticipation was high for the arrival of the new third-generation Corvette Stingray aka the “Shark”. This new Corvette was originally due to be released as a 1967 model, but it wasn’t quite ready for prime time. So, the powers at GM decided that the mid-year bodied Corvette would continue for one more year. And because everyone was waiting for the new girl to arrive, many 1967’s languished in Chevrolet showrooms throughout the Country unsold. Who’d have thought!! The extra year enabled the boys at GM time to refine the C2 just enough to make what is considered the best mid-year, if not the best of the first three generation Corvettes ever built! Hindsight is indeed 20/20.
From Corvette Mike Vietro . . .” I have seen many Vettes over the 42 plus years I’ve been in this business, but this is one of the rarest 1967 L71’s I have ever had the pleasure to offer for sale. Pristinely preserved with only 14411 miles, this N.C.R.S. Top Flight Award winner still sports its original interior. Spectacular attention has been given to this L71 including a detailed engine compartment and chassis. It comes with a binder full of original docs and awards, including the Tank Sticker, Order Copy and Shipper. Even a copy of the original title for ’67!
If you miss this opportunity to buy a virtually new one of a kind ’67 435 Coupe, you will go to your grave kicking yourself in the pants for not stepping up to the plate on and owning the very best money can buy. Because after all “We Sell the Best and Service the Rest”!!!
