The Most Desirable Corvette Ever?

The 1967 Corvette is considered the most-loved Corvette ever produced. The combination of classic C2 styling, along with an incredible array of powertrain and comfort options, makes it one of the most desirable Corvettes ever. Not bad for a car that was never supposed to be made!


The ZR-1's production run from 1990-95 was one of the most exciting times for Corvette enthusiasts in recent memory. In the mid-1980s, rumors of a "King of the Hill" Corvette began to leak out of Detroit and into America's speed shops and dealerships.


Classic Car Overview

- 1 of 2,045! - Date Code Correct 283C.I. 245hp 2x4bbl V8 Engine - 3-Speed Manual Transmission - Desirable Wonderbar Radio! - Finished in Cascade Green w/ Beige Coves - Beige Interior Theres just something about a first-generation Corvette that makes us all smile. The Corvette was the answer to veterans coming home from Europe having experienced British roadsters in large numbers and looking for a similar experience back home. Of course, we had to outdo them. So, we took a lightweight fiberglass body and stuffed a super potent V8 under the hood starting with the 1955 model year which would soon grow to 283C.I. in 1957. This stunning 1957 examples engine is fitted with the highly desirable dual four-barrel carburetor option making 245hp, a massive amount more power than the foreign roadsters it was competing against. The engine is date code correct in line with the cars production date and is 1 of only 2,045 built with that powertrain option. The transmission backing it up is a fun 3-speed manual so you can enjoy rowing through the gears yourself as you blast down your favorite curvy roads. The exterior is finished in unique Cascade Green with beige coves and is nicely accented by glimmering chromework and white-wall tires. The interior sports beige vinyl bucket seats in the classic Corvette waffle pattern, as well as the desirable Wonderbar radio, and a reduced diameter steering wheel for added comfort and driving ease that retains the original classic look. This vintage Vette is ready to hit the boulevard and winding beachside roads, all it needs is someone to take it there.
