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!

Classic Car Overview

With all the hype surrounding big block Corvettes and their skyrocketing values, its easy to overlook cars like this gorgeous 1966 Chevrolet Corvette roadster, which delivers the same thrilling driving experience and heart-stopping good looks, but without the worries of putting a six-figure hole in your bank account. In addition, this particular example features an eye-popping presentation, powerful 327/300 V8, quick-shifting 4-speed manual, and a remarkably low 64,442 actual miles on the clock, making it very special indeed. Trophy Blue was this cars original color, and we love that the owner has left the original recipe alone during this roadsters life. Unlike Nassau or Laguna Blue, Trophy Blue is somehow a bit more elegant and subtle when this car makes its grand entrance, and on the Corvettes instantly recognizable curves, light colors always looks awesome. The repaint is a tad bit older but in great condition and really lights up under the sun, and if you want to take it to a local car show itll fit right in, although you wont have to load it on a trailer to truly enjoy it. Gaps are even, the fiberglass substrate is solid and devoid of cracks, and the way the light moves over the cars Coke-bottle shape reminds us why these are some of the most popular cars ever built. There are a few minor imperfections and even a touchup here and there that suggest its been used and loved, and it would be a crime to not put a car like this on the road, so thats exactly what he did. Add in bright chrome bumpers, correct badges, and shiny rocker trim, and this Corvette looks ready to hit the road immediately. Inside, fresh black seat covers have been fitted, and the color combination is timeless, elegant, and the archetypal Corvette look. Perhaps its a link to our motoring past, but the way the twin cockpit Corvette interior invites you to drive is as much a part of the motoring experience as the hum of the engine or rumble of the exhaust. A woodgrained steering wheel feels great, transmitting the front tires activities directly to your fingertips, and all the gauges show crisp markings that let you keep an eye on the engines status. A Delco AM/FM radio lives in the center stack, showing off its unique vertical orientation, although the chrome 4-speed shifter arguably provides better entertainment. And although this Corvette comes equipped with very rare factory air conditioning, it will need a service before it cools the car again. If the weather turns, youll have a black convertible top, but like most Corvette convertibles designed to play in the sun, well go out on a limb and guess it will stay neatly tucked away underneath the fiberglass boot. The engine is a 327/300 V8, a factory replacement GM block that was swapped-in back when the car had 28K original miles (it now has 64,442 actual miles). Lots of guys learned to fear the mighty 327 in the lightweight Nova, and in the Corvette, it becomes a scalpel compared to the 396s sledgehammer. Linked to a 4-speed manual transmission, its ideal for both laid-back motoring and quick canyon carving where your right foot does all the work and you can dance with the clutch and shifter. Rebuilt to stock specifications, it looks the way you want your Corvette to look when you tilt the hood forward, complete with Chevy Orange valve covers and a big chrome air cleaner and matching chrome distributor cover. The chassis is quite clean, with a correct dual exhaust system, original floors, and power steering, and front disc brakes. It rolls on a set of factory original steel wheels adorned with stock hubcaps and spinners, all of which are wrapped in grippy 205/70/15 front and 205/75/15 rear Hankook rubber. Many big block owners will secretly admit that theyd prefer a smooth-running small block if they were going to drive it every day. With a gorgeous color combination, its a very attractive, low-mileage roadster thats going to be hard to resist every time the sun is shining. Call today!
