If you were able to buy a new '67 Corvette back in the day, few if any buyers truly knew of the significance of their purchase. This was to be the last year of the second generation or mid-years as the '63-'67 models were known. And as was the case in '67, the last of the line turned out to be the best. But truth be told, the '67 Corvette as we know it, wasn't supposed to exist in the first place! Anticipation was high for the arrival of the new third generation Stingray aka the "Shark". The car was due to be released as a '67 model. But, it wasn't quite ready. So, it was decided that the mid-year bodied Corvette would continue for one more year. And because of this, many '67's languished in Chevrolet showrooms throughout the Country because many were waiting to buy the new C3 instead! Who'd a thought!! However, the extra year enabled the boys at GM time to refine the C2 just enough to make what is considered the best mid-year, if not the best of the first three generation Corvettes ever built!

At first glance, a '67 small block Corvette doesn't look a whole lot different than a '66 or '65 for that matter. But, if you ordered a big block, it became quite clear that the '67 was indeed different. So, what set the ’67 big block apart from previous years? That beautiful and distinctive Stinger hood, of course! Today, that hood, and what’s under it, can mean huge $$ compared to just about every other year Corvette built during the “Golden Age”. And yes, there were other changes to the ’67 also. They included the re-location of the emergency brake from under the dash to the center console, making it a true handbrake for the first time. And other subtle refinements to the interior, as well. On the outside, there were new, smaller rectangular side vents and in the rear, the back-up lights were moved from the tail lights to the body, just above the bumpers. The wheels were changed too, with the introduction of the classic Rally wheel, one of the prettiest wheels to ever grace a sports car! And if you checked RPO N89, you got the gorgeous, one year only Bolt-on wheels. Oh, and let’s not forget RPO L88! But, that’s another story . . .

All '67 Corvettes are special, right? But, some are more special than others. Like this one, for instance. Besides the usual (or unusual) stuff, like an L36 427/390hp big block, M20 4-spd. manual transmission, 3.55 Posi rear end, side exhaust, power brakes, power steering, power windows, headrest seats, tinted glass, Hard Top, am/fm radio and red line radial tires, this beautifully restored and very correct mid-year has achieved an N.C.R.S. Top Flight Award and Performance Verification, a Bloomington Gold Award, a Chicago Vette Fest Gold Spinner and the coveted Triple Crown!

Documentation includes the Protect-O-Plate, Tank Sticker, Owners Kit and more! Pretty darn special, if you ask us! But, what makes this particular '67 extra special is that it was the cover car for the Corvette Black Book from '97-'00! Proof comes in the form of a "Thank You" letter dated 10-31-96 from the President and Publisher, Mike Antonick!
