There are plenty of nice Sting Rays that are worth the money. But then there are the rare few like this that you’ll give parts of your anatomy for just because you want to want the top awards the moment you leave the showroom. This 1967 coupe is a numbers-matching big-block with factory air and in its original color scheme. Do we have your attention yet? Good, because there even more mouth-watering details.
If you’re a Corvette aficionado, then you already know that 1967 was the last year of the C2, and it’s seen in most circles as the best of the breed. The fit and finish is exactly what you want from a Sting Ray of this caliber. The trim is bright and complete, which is something you love to see because these final-year C2s had some intricate details – everything from the thin stylized bumpers to the chrome plated exhaust bezels. This is absolutely a show car with excellent panel gaps and its original shade of Sunfire Yellow now resprayed to give it the kind of gloss the factory never could. This brightness is contrasted with the aggressively dark stinger hood trimmed in black. And just for those who didn’t already know this means there’s a big-block lurking underneath, there are the correct 427 callouts on the bulge. This gorgeous Corvette was fully restored 6-7 years ago and many NOS parts were used during the restoration at a great cost to the restorer.
The interior is like a time machine back to 1967. It feels that fresh because the bucket seats, door panels, carpeting, dash, center console, and every other square inch inside this coupe either has been preserved to new condition or fitted with new components. It might be a black interior, but there are plenty of features to keep it nice and inviting. For example, when you slip inside, you’re greeted to the warm feeling only a wood steering wheel can provide. Plus, the chrome components around the dials, shifter and on the dash really brighten up the attitude. It all feels factory-correct from the AM/FM radio to power windows to the big center clock that’s still ticking away. One upgrade that you won’t see, but definitely feel, is the factory air conditioning converted to R-134a for easier servicing.
There's definitely something magical about a 427 in a Corvette. That's what legends are all about. This one is the numbers-matching L36, and it presents perfectly in the engine bay with the bold Chevy orange correctly on the block and valve covers. In fact, this one looks especially nice with the correct chrome air cleaner and distributor cover, and you can barely tell the welcomed A/C upgrade is under the hood. This motor is a remarkably docile beast when you're tooling around town, but snarls and roars through the dual exhaust when you’re gunning it. And that’s exactly how to look at this one. It’s a great all-around performance machine with four-wheel disc brakes backed up by modern Hankook tires. But on the other hand, you can also enjoy taking it easy with features such as the Powerglide automatic transmission and power steering.
