Rally Red w/Red interior, L79 327/350hp, 4-speed manual transmission.
“I wonder how it drives?” is a key question in acquiring a collectible Corvette. In this case, the answer is…you will not find a better driving C2 generation roadster. Period. This convertible drives as well or better than a new one did back in the day. Smooth over the road, tight, accurate steering, crisp turning, and handling on fresh redline radials. And it runs cool in hot weather. And of course, with side-pipes, its All-American V8 growl is enhanced to bring smiles to every car nut within range.
If asked to find the best all-around mid-year driver that offered dependability, performance, and fun. You would be hard pressed to find a more fitting candidate than the ’67 L79 327 Convertible. Only two small blocks were offered in ’67; the base 327/300hp and the (soon to be legendary) high-performance L79, which offered 350hp and because of its special camshaft, was only available with a 4-speed manual transmission. This engine had been introduced in ’65 and in added a different camshaft, bigger heads with 2.02 valves, an aluminum intake manifold topped with a Holley carb and finned cast aluminum valve covers.
Putting that engine under the hood of a ’67 Corvette, which was at the top of its game, gave you an almost unbeatable combination that has only grown in stature and popularity over the decades since its production!
Taking all of the above info into consideration, all you would need to do is pick a color combo and options. And what was one of the most popular colors in ’67 (or any other year, for that matter)? If you answered Red, you win! But, what you don’t see as often is Red with striking Red interior!
This beautiful ’67 has been fully restored and features, a matching #s L79 350hp 327 small block, power steering, AM/FM radio, side exhaust and reproduction Bolt-on wheels with Red line radial tires.
The car not only looks fantastic, it’s also a joy to drive! It starts up instantly, idles with that slight lope, tracks and stops straight and has gobs of power!
