1967 Corvette Sting Ray Coupe
LMC is proud to offer for sale this outstanding ’67 Corvette Sting Ray Coupe
Chevrolet Corvette, C2 for 2nd Generation and also known as the Corvette Sting Ray, is an American sports car legend produced for the 1963 to 1967 model years. The radical exterior styling of this generation was very purposeful, with peaked fenders, a long nose and a short, bobbed tail that Chevrolet designers bragged about as ‘looks most stylists would be too timid to even suggest’. The 1967 Corvette Sting Ray was the last Corvette of the second generation, and five years of refinements made it the best of the mid-year era. Changes were again modest such as five smaller front fender vents replaced the three larger ones, a new single backup light mounted above the license plate, and the previous models' wheel covers gave way to slotted Rally wheels with chrome beauty rings and lug nuts concealed behind chrome caps. Interior alterations include revised upholstery and the hand brake being moved from beneath the dash to between the seats. Coupes were rare representing only 8,504 for the production year that put 22,940 Corvettes on the road with the original buyer considering a base price of $4,353.
This Corvette Coupe was built in St. Louis during the last month of production on July 5, 1967 and was shipped to Les Vogel Chevrolet in San Francisco, California as per the NCRS Shipping Data Report The black trim vinyl interior is well suited against the attractive (Code 976) Marina Blue exterior and is visually pleasing coupled with the black stinger hood.
