LMC is very proud to offer for sale this 1967 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible 427/435HP.
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. The 427/435HP L71 Sting Ray would be the high-water mark of Corvette performance and refinement for the C2 series of cars. 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. The 427/435hp came standard from the factory with the Holley triple two-barrel carburetor arrangement called Tri-Power. The rare L71 engine package cost the original buyer an extra $437.10 on the GM order form.
As listed on the Tank Sticker, this Corvette was ordered with the optional solid lifter L71 427/435HP engine, 4-speed close ratio manual transmission, Posi-traction rear end, Black soft-top, black vinyl covered auxiliary hardtop, side exit exhaust, push button AM/FM radio, Tinted Glass and finished in its factory delivered Silver Pearl exterior. This L71 Corvette is powered by a numbers matching 427/435HP engine, and a numbers matching 4-speed close ratio transmission. The rally wheels and redline bias ply tires look classic and the striking contrast of the Black Stinger, interior and hardtop make this ‘Vette a real eye catcher. This Corvette comes complete with a Tank Sticker and Protect-O-Plate. Other documents included include photos from the frame off restoration, ’67 Corvette Owner’s Manual, AM/FM Radio Operating Instruction Booklet, Registration Paperwork and Ownership History, as well as copies of magazine it was featured in.
With the combination of the optional L71 powerhouse engine, the 4-speed close ratio transmission, side exhaust and being a convertible with a factory hardtop, and, plus documentation makes this an extremely rare and collectable example.
