1967 Chevrolet Corvette 427/400hp Sting Ray Convertible
s/n 194677S113775 engine no. T022800 7113775
Goodwood Green with Saddle Leather Interior

Introduced for the 1963 model year, the C2 generation of Corvette was an instant hit. The car carried over the excellent engines from 1962, but the remainder of the car was new, with its now iconic styling and independent rear suspension. In 1963 and 1964, all cars were equipped with 327cid engines, and the most powerful of these was the variant equipped with Rochester fuel injection. In 1965, the Corvette received disc brakes all around for the first time, addressing a longtime area of criticism of the car, particularly considering its significant power ratings. 1965 also marked the arrival of the big block engines (initially 396cid and later 427cid for 1966), with the small block continuing on in a variety of forms. 1967 was the last year of the C2, and power ratings were increased for the big block engines, making them among the most desirable, and certainly the most refined of the cars.

This particular example has been treated to a full frame-off restoration and is a matching numbers car that remains in its original color combination of Goodwood green with white stinger hood and top, and saddle leather interior.

It comes with its original Car Shipper invoice indicating the following options: GOODWOOD GREEN
CONV 390 TO 400 HP
775X15X2 PLY WSW

It was sold new at Economy Chevrolet Company in Norwood Ohio and the car is currently equipped with the above equipment in addition to side mount exhaust and redline tires. The car is extremely well documented, with records back to 1978. A comprehensive restoration was performed in the early 1990’s, and the car was shown several times at NCRS events in 1992-1994 where the car did extremely well, scoring 97+ points twice for two Top Flight Awards. The car remains in very nice condition and is extremely complete with original and reproduction owner’s manuals, radio tags, radio manual supplement, “1967 Chevrolets” matchbook, optional accessories catalogs, wheel trim ring instruction cards, original extra keys, and two plastic Chevrolet booklet sheafs.

The car had considerable mechanical and cosmetic freshening in 2005-2006, to include a complete repaint rechromed bumpers, carburetor rebuild, new exhaust manifolds, recored radiator, engine-out engine compartment detail, and other miscellaneous engine work. The engine was dyno’d before reinstallation and made 447.6hp and 469.6 ft lbs of torque.

Cosmetically, the car is in excellent condition. The paintwork is beautiful, both in terms of execution and condition. There is one small chip in the paint on the cowl, but the paint is otherwise nearly unmarked. The fit on the panels is very good, and the chrome is also quite nice, with only the lightest of pitting. The car has the correct badges and trim, which are in excellent condition.

The interior is also very nice, and is correctly finished and equipped throughout. There is light wear to the driver’s seat, but the upholstery is in great shape, and the dashboard and carpets are also excellent. The instruments, switches, and controls are in excellent condition as well, with the only notable wear being to the paint below the key hole. Otherwise, the interior has been done to the standards required for showing the car at a high level. The original radio is still in place, as are the seatbelts. The top is in excellent condition and is very easy to operate.

The engine compartment is very clean, and is correctly detailed and finished throughout. The decal on the air cleaner is of the correct type, though it is peeling at the edges. The valve covers and block are correctly finished in red-orange, and the details are very good throughout, such as the fitment of a correct Delco battery.

The car is very enjoyable to drive. The engine starts easily, sounds terrific, and rocks the car when revved as only a big block can. The engine runs well with abundant power and no smoke, and the car is very fast. The brakes are effective and pull the car up evenly, and the transmission shifts easily. The suspension is also good, and the car has a nice taught chassis.

This is an excellent opportunity to acquire an extremely clean and correct matching numbers big-block Sting Ray from the last year of production. Finished in its original, rare, and attractive color combination, the car is well optioned and was restored to very high standards. The restoration is mellowing nicely, making this a lovely car to drive and enjoy, or show casually. It is also extremely complete with much original documentation and a thick binder of invoices back to 1978.
