This 1967 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible 327 Is Yours To Take
There were varying reports as to why General Motors decided to keep the current model around for one more year. Some speculated that the launch of the C3 was intentionally delayed because Chevrolet had introduced the Camaro to its lineup in 1967. Although many critics and enthusiasts proclaimed that the 1967 Corvette Sting Ray would in fact be the first of an entirely new generation of Corvettes, it turned out that it would actually be the last – and most refined of the C2’s. And, that is what you are going to get if you head on to PCARMARKET as they are currently putting up a 1967 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible on auction.
The body is finished in Rally Red (974) with a white convertible top and is said to have been professionally repainted in its factory color during the restoration by the Verillo team at Prestige Motor Car that was completed in 2012. Additional exterior details include split chrome bumpers, pop-up headlights, a tinted windshield, a polished windscreen surround, a driver’s side chrome mirror, vent windows, front fender vents, and optional side-mounted exhaust pipes.
It is equipped with a 327ci L79 V8 that was also rebuilt during the restoration and was factory rated at 350 HP and 360 lb.-ft of torque. That power is then sent to the rear wheels through a 4-speed manual transmission and a Positraction rear axle.
The interior has been reupholstered in red vinyl with matching carpeting and stainless-steel trim. Amenities include manual windows, a wood-rimmed three-spoke steering wheel, a vertically mounted AC Delco AM/FM radio, a polished ball shifter, a locking Corvette-branded glovebox, and an analog clock in the center stack.
