Ironically, the second-generation 1967 Corvette Sting Ray was never intended to be, scheduled for replacement that year by a new body design inspired by the wild GM Mako Shark show car. However, engine-cooling issues and quality concerns caused Chief Corvette Engineer Zora Arkus-Duntov to advocate the new model’s postponement to 1968. While a potential disaster for Chevrolet, this last-minute decision yielded the final—and what many enthusiasts believe to be the best—second-generation Corvette Sting Rays, showcasing exceptionally clean and virtually impeccable styling with minimal embellishment.
A total of 22,940 Corvettes were produced for 1967, of which the majority, numbering 14,436, were convertibles. Not including the competition-only 427 CI L88 engine, three Mark IV big-block engines were available for the Corvette, ranging from the 390 HP L36 and the triple-carb L68 developing 400 HP, to the wicked, solid-lifter, triple-carbureted L71 mill factory-rated at 435 HP. Priced at a heady $437.10 option cost, the L71 mill was selected by 3,754 speed-hungry Corvette buyers for 1967.
Finished in Sunfire Yellow with a black hood stinger, this highly optioned 1967 Corvette convertible includes both hard and soft tops. A two-time NCRS Top Flight award winner, this Corvette is exceedingly rare with its array of 15 factory options, including no radio. Powered by a matching-numbers L71 427/435 HP V-8 engine paired with a matching-numbers M21 close-ratio 4-speed manual transmission, the Corvette is equipped with a 3.36 Positraction rear end, power steering, power brakes, F41 suspension, side exhaust, shoulder harnesses, headrests, a tinted windshield, K66 transistorized ignition, a Speed Minder and five 15-inch bolt-on wheels. Documents include the NCRS Shipping Data Report, car shipper form and NCRS-validated tank sticker.
