1967 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe
1967 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe
Stingrays are commonly found in the shallow coastal waters of temperate seas. They spend the majority of their time inactive, partially buried in sand, often moving only with the sway of the tide. When they are inclined to move, most stingrays swim by undulating their bodies like a wave; others flap their sides like wings. The tail may also be used to maneuver in the water, but its primary purpose is protection. When swimming under duress, they can propel themselves incredibly fast and nimble through the water.
With the original owner ordering this car for a Christmas present to give to his wife, the car was delivered December 14, 1966. His wife did not take long to realize that it was in her words “like driving a guided missile”, the Vette went to the husband, and she obtained a Rolls Royce. At this point the husband “hot rodded” the car by having the dealer install year correct side pipes and a tri-power manifold. He drove it for a bit, but then alas it remained in heated storage for 35 years until our consigner picked it up upon the passing of his longtime family friend. Mechanicals will need to be renewed, and our experts here at Classic Auto Mall did not want to attempt to put a battery in and fire it up, due to any unknown gremlins that may have crept in after 35 years in storage and not running. We give you an original, 22,477 mile 1967 427ci time capsule.
The consigner states only a respray on the front fender on the passenger's side. The car is in excellent condition in Sunfire Yellow with a black stinger on the hood, hidden headlights, split bumpers front and rear nice and shiny, and the dealer installed side pipes. You've gotta love the top of the doors wrapping into the roof, borrowed from aircraft design. A single piece of curved rear glass frames a pointed rear deck and the duo of 2 round taillights on the sharklike back. 15 inch rally wheels are now on, however this car comes with the original bolt on wheels from the dealership that came with this car, and dating the tires we got back to 1969!
I'd have to say with the low miles on this car, you would need to call the interior concours quality, it is that pristine. All original black vinyl door panels, buckets center console with power window toggles and ball topped automatic shifter in between the buckets. Moving upward in the center of the 2 arches which make up either side of the dash, a vertically mounted radio, numerous chromed knobs and a round clock. In front of the driver are all the shiny and very clean gauges and some more knobs and controls as well as the odometer. A large wood rimmed steering wheel is fronting the dash, and nice clean like new black carpeting is covering all floors, including the back storage area under the rear curved glass. Headliner is black and a single panel under the roof. We note many options in the interior such as factory air conditioning, head rests, speed warning, full tint and a telescopic steering wheel, just to name a few.
All numbers matching 427ci L36 390hp V8 with the correct alternator, and distributor numbers with the engine being built in Tonawanda, NY on November 16th, 1966. On top is a date correct 1967 intake and trio of 2-barrel carburetors (coined tri-power), and on back is a Powerglide 2-speed automatic also numbers matching. Factory power steering and power brakes. The rear axle is also matching and is in 3.08 Posi-traction form. The original and correct single 4bbl intake, carburetor and air cleaner are included with the car.
Nice patina and slight surface rust but all structurally sound. Floorpans and toe kicks are just fab as are rockers. Independent coil sprung front suspension is on, and C2 suspension brings up the rear. Power disc brakes are on all 4 corners.
A well optioned car, all clean and fresh out of storage from the last 35 years. Comes with its original protect-o-plate and never been judged or certified, we'll leave that up to you. Some work will be required by a professional to fire this car back up, but in the end, you will have a certifiable, original, low low mileage 427ci Corvette with tri-power and side pipes. It just does not get any better for the collectible genre.
