LMC is very proud to offer for sale this 1967 Chevrolet Corvette
The 1967 Corvette Sting Ray was the last Corvette of the second generation, and five years of refinements made it the best of the line. Several important changes marked the mid-years’ evolution but no change was greater than the introduction of the 427-cubic inch engine. These Big Block cars would be the high-water mark of Corvette performance and refinement for the C2 series of cars. The 427/400hp L68 came standard from the factory with the Holley triple two-barrel carburetor arrangement called Tri-Power. Only 2101 Corvettes in 1967 received this rare engine option which was a $305.50 cost.
Body changes were modest with five smaller front fender vents replacing 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 were exchanged for the new design. Interior alterations included revised upholstery and the handbrake moved from beneath the dash to between the seats.
This 1967 Corvette 427/400 Roadster was sold new at White Allen Chevrolet Inc. in Dayton, Ohio on 12/23/1966 to its original owner Anthony R. Pflum as per the original sales order. Factory ordered in the beautiful code 986 Silver Pearl paint complemented by a black stinger hood stripe that ties in with the 976 standard black vinyl interior, this is a highly attractive color combination. Most importantly, it was ordered with the rare Tri-power L68 427ci/400hp engine option with a M21 close ratio 4-speed transmission. Other equipment includes tinted windshield, AM/FM radio and posi-traction axle.
