This 1967 Stingray Defines The Term ‘Show Quality’

Check out one of the finest examples of one of the most desirable Corvettes ever!

This 1967 Corvette Stingray is a rocket-powered time machine, for when you want to visit a period in American history where combining good looks with serious power and performance took off.

It was created during a time when GM was the king of the streets, and Corvette was practically a car god. The breathtaking second-generation Stingray body style was one of the best parts of the automotive world in the 1960s, and it still remains to be one of the most impactful designs of all time. 

Corvettes were thriving in the 60s, and it was no accident. Although this example represents the last year of the C2, the 1967 year model happens to be one of the favorite Corvette year models of all time, and certainly one that comes to mind first when discussing the original run of the Sting Ray. 

Offered by Classic Cars of Sarasota, this black and red coupe is loaded with attractive options, like factory air conditioning, power steering, power disc brakes, shoulder belts, headrests, side pipes, and tinted glass - so this car is pretty well-optioned for coming out of the era it did.

It is carried by the power of a 427-cubic inch engine that puts out 400-horsepower, and is backed by a four-speed transmission. It has the correct rally wheels and the interior is every bit as striking as the out. 

It underwent a frame off restoration five years ago, so it’s got more than a lifetime’s worth of road time left in it, or would make a great addition to a garage kept collection. As any enthusiast knows, second-generation Corvettes in this condition don’t stay on the market for very long, and it would undoubtably cause a total bidding frenzy if it ever ended up at a classic car auction.
