Tuxedo Black w/Black interior, 427/435hp, 4-spd. manual transmission.
It’s widely acknowledged that 1967 was the year that Corvette got everything right! Some of you may know that the ’67, as we know it wasn’t supposed to exist. Back in ’66 everyone was eagerly awaiting the introduction of the new third generation, “Shark” bodied Corvette, which was due to be released as a ’67 model. However, it wasn’t quite ready for prime time. So, it was decided that C2 production would continue for one more year. And as a result, a legend was born.
The ’67 L71 427/435hp Convertible is still considered the “King of the Hill” by most Corvette aficionados. But within this category, there is still a standout. And that would be a ’67 L71 Convertible . . . in Tuxedo Black! Black was always the rarest color, but in this configuration, it’s REALY RARE!! Not to mention extremely desirable and very collectible!
