LMC is very proud to offer for sale this 1967 Chevrolet Corvette L79 Roadster
The 1967 Chevrolet Corvette is one of the most iconic American cars of the 1960’s. America’s Sports Car had developed a reputation of great performance and unmistakable styling. Of course, it was the big block 427 cars which garnered a lot of the attention but, the high horsepower 327 cars were among the best-balanced sports car for the time. Similar to the 289 vs 427 Cobra, the 327 Corvettes are often looked upon as being the better of the two engines for those looking for a balance of drivability, performance and comfort.
Unlike the first generation, the Sting Ray could be had in both coupe and convertible body styles, and this proved to be a big hit with the public. Over the course of the Sting Ray’s production from 1963 to 1967, styling remained largely the same albeit for some subtle changes. Four-wheel disc brakes and a big-block engine became available in 1965, and with a long list of options and colors, enthusiasts could mix and match to their hearts’ desires.
