1967 Chevrolet Corvette -- Additional Info:

Building on the success of the first generation, these second-gen cars were dramatically restyled and the chassis was significantly redesigned making them smaller and much more of a driver's car. Five years of refinements made these '67s the best of the line, as well as the last. This one has a sweet combination of a powerful, numbers matching big block engine with side pipes, a 4-speed transmission, and a drop top. It attracts attention as it rolls down the street... and was built to be driven. Come on down and check it out. Marina Blue has got to be one of the most beautiful colors that you can paint these cars. This cars original paint code also happens to be 976 so it's an original Marina Blue piece. The peaked fenders catch the light and reflect it along their curves as it moves down the street. The big block hood announces the 427 lurking below it with lettering on the side of the hood scoop. The spear leading into it, along with the scoop itself are highlighted in white, nicely matching the white convertible roof. Of-course this was the body style that introduced hideaway headlights that rotate open and improved aerodynamics, becoming a Corvette standard item until 2005. Functional 5-louver vents exhaust engine compartment heat out of the fenders and side-pipes on a car are pretty rare, so always make quite a statement when you see them. There is a removable hard top available (not pictured) to go along with the canvas drop top on this car, so be sure to ask your salesperson about it. Kelsey Hayes style reproduction wheels look great and complete the awesome look of this car. Open the door (or just look in if the roof is down), and you will find a sharp looking interior dressed up in two shades of blue with white upholstery (also the original combination for the car). The white door panels have chrome piping outlining the upper section and cutting a line along the armrest. White bucket seats are comfortable with pleated seating surfaces surrounded by smooth vinyl. Go ahead, set yourself down in the driver's side and reach out for the three spoke, deep dish, wooden steering wheel. Behind it you will find reproduction gauges that are fresh, clean, and easy to read in the stock locations under a deep cowl. A 160 MPH Speedo on the left, tach on the right with smaller battery, fuel, water and oil gauges on each side. The center console curves down with the unique clock at the top with ventilation controls and radio knobs below it. The vertically oriented radio sits just in front of the chrome ball shifter for the manual transmission that falls easily to hand and just begs to be stirred around. Pop the hood and you will find that precious, numbers matching 427 motor nestled down inside a neat and clean engine bay. It is completely stock with a decal on the chrome air topper announcing it as the 427 Turbo-Jet 390 HP. Signs of good maintenance are evident with newer belts, hoses and ignition components as well as a fresh alternator and master cylinder for the 4-wheel disc brakes. Power flows back through a 4-speed manual transmission and the suspension as well as the steering components have been gone through and replaced in the recent past. A beefy sway bar in the front keeps the car cornering flat and the independent rear suspension that Zora Duntov designed for this car gets the power to the ground quite effectively. The rubber meets the road through 205/75R14 white wall tires mounted on those Kelsey Hayes style wheels with Chevrolet center caps. A very desirable big block car with its original drive train that is a blast to drive. It doesn't get much better than this! Come on down and check this car out.
