This 1967 Chevrolet Corvette Sting Ray in Marina Blue with bright blue interior not only is powered by the mighty 427 V8 but is in fantastic condition winning multiple NCRS Top Flights and other awards.
This was the last year of the second generation Corvettes that had been around since 1963. Highly refined during those 5 years, Chevrolet had really got it right this year – it was the cleanest looking of the 1963-67 generation.
Gone were the three fake front louvers from the previous year and replaced with 5 functioning ones.
The interior is bright blue – code 414 and one of eight colors available for ’67. Note the parking brake was relocated this year from under the dash to the center console.
New for this year was the single backup light, mounted above the license plate.
Standard engine for the Corvette in 1967 was the 327 cubic inch Turbo-Fire V8 producing 300 horsepower. This car has the optional, high power 427 V8 equipped with 3 x 2 barrel carburetors that outputs 435 horsepower. This is paired with a four-speed manual transmission – it was a combination that cost an additional $621 when the car was ordered new.
Wheelbase is 98″ with an overall length of 175.2″ (175.3″ for the coupe) and a width of 69.6″.
