LMC is very proud to offer for sale this ’67 Sting Ray Roadster.
The 1967 Corvette Sting Ray was the last Corvette of the second generation, and arguably after five years of refinements made it the best of the line. Changes were again modest such as five smaller front fender vents replaced the three larger ones and the flat-finish rockers conferred a lower profile. New was a single backup light mounted above the license plate and the previous models' wheel covers gave way to slotted six-inch Rally wheels with chrome beauty rings and lug nuts concealed behind chrome caps. Interior alterations included revised upholstery and the handbrake moved from beneath the dash to between the seats. Enthusiast and collectors today mistakenly believe the C2 Corvettes came with the options we all love and admire, especially looking at the prices today, however in most cases they were not ordered. The Code N89 Aluminum Bolt-on Wheels were only delivered on 720 Corvettes because of the $263.30 cost. Even the Side-Mounted Exhaust System was a very rare option as only 4,209 Corvette purchasers in ’67 paid the extra $131.05 price tag. The ultimate option was the Code L71 427/435HP engine available with a Holley triple two-barrel carburetor arrangement called Tri-Power. The rare L71 427 engine package, with only 3754 produced cost the original buyer an extra $437.10 on the GM order form that had the Roadsters retailing at $4141. This is one of only 14,436 Roadsters for the production year that put 22,940 Corvettes on the road - the rarest models had the powerful 427 package of brute strength ready to devour any road!
