1967 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe
1967 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe
And now a few Corvette quick facts! Harley Earl, the designer of the Corvette, initially designed his roadster under the name “Project Opel." The original target price point was a mere $2,000. There's a bit of resemblance between early Corvettes and the Jaguar XK120 due to Harley Earl drawing some inspiration from the classic Jaguar. The Corvette has been produced in three different cities: Flint, Bowling Green, and St. Louis. The first Corvette retailed for $3,513 in 1953. Adjusted for inflation, that's an affordable $31,608! Myron Scott, who worked as a photographer for Chevrolet, named the Corvette after a small warship of the same designation. The Corvette is the only vehicle to ever offer a legitimate “wrap-around” windshield.
For consignment an immaculately restored 1967 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray… the last mid-year model, as next year will introduce us to the shark. It is also the cleanest with most of the trim removed including the badging on the hood and the flags on the fenders. New 5 slot functional vents on the side fenders and a fixed 31" radio antenna were also new. The parking brake is now located between the seats, the first time for a Corvette. Pre-1967 parking brakes were located under the dashboard. The passenger handhold above the glove compartment was removed this year. The knock-off wheel option was modified to use 5 lug nuts to hold the wheel on, a result of new safety regulations. A snap-on center cap was used to hide the lug nuts. The seats were re-designed again for more comfort and safety. Big-Block cars have a large air scoop over the center bulge replacing the "power-blister" of previous years. A blue "GM Mark of Excellence" sticker was placed over the latch on the back of each of the doors as a result of a GM quality awareness program. The '67 Stingray has dual taillights instead of the previous single light and optional back-up light. The back-up lights are now mounted above the license plate.
With a color change from Marlboro Maroon to now Tuxedo Black resprayed 20 years ago we are looking good, when viewing the fit and finish, which is outstanding, and speaks to the quality of the respray. The body appears to be damage free with no known collision repairs. Hidden headlamps rotate properly and house the original T-3 headlamps. Factory side piped exhaust has been installed and were original to the car. Chrome is excellent with no faults. Also, very clean and beautiful are the knock off less wheels with 5 lug nuts and a cap to cover them, surrounded by a deep-dish trim ring all wrapped in Coker red line new radials. All brite work, and the minimal trim is excellent plus condition. Aircraft style doors wrap up around the roofline and create a great look as well as a tight seal within the door jambs.
Courtesy Al Knoch Interiors, the buckets have been upgraded to leather, as well as the door panels. Also, recently an Al Knoch headliner was installed and looks like it just left the showroom. All gauges work properly, and the radio was repaired to blurt out tunes from the AM/ FM bands. An original wood steering wheel turns above nicely preserved black carpet on the floors. All wonderfully clean and fault free, as beautiful as the exterior.
The engine is a 1967 327ci V8 with casting number 3892657 and all the correct L79 componentry, however, is not the original block. It is unknown why the original was replaced. A single 4-barrel carburetor is atop, and a 4-speed manual transmission is on the back of the engine.
Very sound and very nicely presenting itself underneath, all black with 4-wheel independent suspension, and stainless-steel brakes installed. In a word, just gorgeous.
You can expect this awesome '67 L-79 coupe to run, drive, and perform well and it does not disappoint. Consigner states a definite high-quality driver but not fully restored to a show car. So, no garage queen here, just bold design, and awesome power, with some comfortable interior looks thrown in for giggles. Very clean and seeing in person will bring a definite smile to your face.
