1967 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible
1967 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible
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.
Here we see a 1967 Corvette with the “stinger hood”. Born as a power example Corvette with a matching numbers 427ci 390hp engine, correct Holley Intake and carburetor and 4-speed Muncie transmission. It has the classic Sting Ray look. Nimble, very fast, and the look from 1967, Harley Earl's team was definitely at the top of their game, and this car is at the top of the power chain.
Deep Tuxedo Black painstakingly applied shows beautifully and is definitely the deep end of the pool as to paint quality. A red painted accenting was applied over the hood and shows a crack in the center of the red and adds a nice contrast on the stinger style hood and scoop and stinger stripe is on this car. Wonderful to the ear and eyes, the factory side pipes are present, and add a nice contrast to the split front and rear chrome bumpers. A new black convertible top has been put on and works flawlessly. On all 4 corners are snappy turbine style 15-inch wheels wrapped by redline rubber.
A RED colored interior, that shouts RED, vinyl buckets, and dash covering, as well as center console armrest and chromed shift lever are virtually spotless. The standard Corvette “2 hump dash” houses the instrument cluster on the driver's side, and the arched door glovebox on the passenger side. A vertical divider running from the console to the dash, houses the sideways AM/FM radio, and a clock are installed. Flooding the floor and back storage compartment is beautiful deep red loop pile carpeting, with no marks or fades.
Numbers matching 427 cubes grace this fully restored and beautiful looking engine bay. It is shoehorned in with its red/orange GM painted block, and matte finish valve covers. Hoses and wiring are supple and like new and all black paint is looking showroom condition throughout. Numbers work out for the good in the Holley intake (correct 1967 427 intake) and Holley 4-barrel carb (correct 1967 427 carb.). A numbers matching Muncie M20 4-speed manual transmission is on back and a 3:36 posi rear axle is original and on.
Just like the topside, all buttoned up with no rust, solid structural rust free steel and floorpans and rockers. Independent coil springs with concentric springs are in front, and for the rear are independent rear suspension with a frame mounted differential unit double universal jointed tubular axles and transverse multi leaf springs. Disc brakes on all 4 corners and of course the side pipes handled the exhale.
Careful stepping into this car when hot you can singe the hair on your legs if you get too close. It is wonderful to be in the red, and surrounded by black with a shark look, stinger hood, and 427ci awaiting my foot to tickle the throttle. And I did and then some on the test track where it performed swimmingly. I did notice the radio was not working during my test drive, but no matter I wanted to listen to the 8 cylinders working in unison.
A beautifully redone example with a gorgeous spotless exterior and interior. Sitting in this car brings you back to the showroom in 1967, and you can almost harken back to 1967 and the salesman putting the pressure on to take it home to the little lady (who is probably going to bonk you over the head with a frying pan if you did, but you gotta luv the 60's)! Cranking the 427ci V8 4 bbl over and pushing the throttle to the floor will have you smelling rubber and avoiding said pan. Put the top down and get some air in your hair.
