1967 Chevrolet Corvette
Convertible Car for sale by THE VETTE NET in Venice, Florida 34293
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
It is almost impossible to overstate the significance of the 1967 model, as the last of the second generation of Corvettes, the "Mid-years" (1963-1967). Add to that the respectable 427 engine, then the three-deuce 435 HP and you have the most desirable and collectable Corvette.
Our offer today is a beautiful Convertible equipped with the 427/435 engine, 4-speed manual transmission, power brakes and power steering (rare combo), power windows, factory side pipes, 4.56 rear axle, all in all, a very well optioned classic. Off-frame restored in 2000, it looks and feels fresh with no reproach. The engine has the correct matching numbers (VIN and suffix) on the engine pad and the correct cast and date. It is dressed very well with the correct Chrome shielding, orange block and valve covers, breathing in through a set of triple Holley carburetors, the famous trademark of the 435 HP setup. Transmission is a year-correct M21 close-ratio four-speed manual. The rear end is the original 4.56 (!) giving you monster acceleration. Factory side pipes complete the race setup.
The interior is in excellent condition, being fitted with Leather Saddle seats, seat backs being original, though, new correct carpet, door panels, dash, etc. Pretty much everything is new and functional too. Yes, all the gauges and instruments work, including the clock, also, the original radio is functional. Note the correct Teak steering wheel. Headlights operate properly too.
Paint is stunning! The correct Marlboro Maroon paint was applied when car was off-frame restored and it is in excellent condition with no imperfections whatsoever. Chrome bumpers are new, so are the correct wheels and beauty rings. A new set of Redline tires was just installed.
Car runs and drives like it should, exhibiting plenty of raw of power, there are no shakes and rattles, no pulling, stops on a dime. Actually, the seller states there are only 65K documented miles on the car which is consistent with the overall look and feel. It comes with the original bill of sale from 1967 and owner’s manual.
What does the car need? Glad you asked! Actually nothing, just a new home and a collector to enjoy it. Needless to say, these cars have definitely great investment potential and the prestigious Hagerty Price Guide is placing an average value of $126000 on a #3 “Good” condition example. Let’s be fair and accept this is definitely a little more than average. Also, auction reports indicate a 5% appreciation for #3 cars and 10% appreciation for #1 cars, so you cannot go wrong.
