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

For consignment, a restored 1971 Stingray Sugar Scoop version of the classic Corvette. Almost showroom looking, a not oft seen Bridgehampton Blue respray with a body matching T top and black vinyl interior. For 1971 a new resin formula for the fiberglass was instituted to improve thy body finish, and it shows nicely on this sports car. Some extra kick in the seat of the pants under the hood with a built 383ci V8 but purists fret not, as the numbers matching engine is also included with your purchase. Also this would be the second to last year for the chromed bumpers showing up on both ends of a Corvette. Exterior These early 1970s Vettes are just beautifully sculpted with their shark like front ends complete with hidden headlights a split chrome surround grille, long front quarters that curve around the wheels and tires, and a small intake grid, (previously known as the cove ), just behind the wheel well. OEM side pipes hang from the rockers and add to the luscious curves that continue for the rear quarters and raked rearward roll pan containing the 4 round tail lights. Framing this below is a split rear bumper. 17-inch polished 5 spoke Torque Thrust wheels are on all 4 corners and are wrapped by BF Goodrich G-Force T/A rubber. Interior Tall thin, nice condition vinyl black buckets are flanked by molded black door panels on either side. A black center console is in and houses the handbrake and Hurst short throw shift lever. The central dash has an aftermarket radio in AM/FM/Cassette form, and just above a quintet of inset gauges to monitor your flight status! An angled black dash front houses the deep inset round gauges in front of an original rally steering wheel. For the passenger, some vinyl pockets in lieu of the glovebox can handle thin items, (maps/purse/etc). One can remove the roof panels for some open air driving. Drivetrain Replacing the original engine, (a 350ci 270hp V8), which will come with this car but needs a rebuild, is now a 383ci V8 engine that the consignor stated puts out 435hp, however no documentation is provided to back this up. This is topped with a 4 barrel carburetor and a numbers matching to the car Muncie M20 4-speed manual transmission is strapped to the rear of the V8. The rear axle weighs in at 3.36 gear ratio, (LR stamping code), and does a nice job of spinning the rear tires. The engine has some bling added with Chevrolet badged chrome valve coverings, an open chromed air cleaner housing, and absolutely no corrosion or rust seen with many supple color coded wires which come from a 2016 installed harness. Undercarriage Just as the topside impressed this writer, so does the underside. A nice heavy coating of black paint is seen with patina covered floor pans and horizontal framing running through at equal spaces as we go through the car underneath. Independent SLA type with coil springs are on front, and for the rear, full independent suspension with a frame anchored differential unit and transverse leaf springs. Power disc brakes, and power steering helps you maneuver all the tight parking lots. Drive-Ability A quick starter, nice driver and handling to beat the band, this car is akin to driving a rolling work of art. It is a head turner, and handles nicely and accelerates with plenty of power thanks to the built 383ci mill. Bias free braking, and an easy clutch for the 4-speed make driving this artwork a pleasure. The heater blower is not working and our consignor notes that many original parts are included. (Engine, factory rally wheels and tires, and all parts to the un-hooked up AC system) A nice job overall on the restoration, clean nicely painted fiberglass, shiny bumpers and hidden headlights as well as the curvaceous fenders and lines of the sugar scooper version of the Stingray. Come on down and catch the Corvette virus as the vaccine cannot stop this baby! Ill take the jab! 194371S120389 1-Chevrolet 94-Corvette 37-Coupe 1-1971 S-St. Louis, MO Assy Plant 120389-Sequential Unit Number TRIM TAG K25-June 25th 1971 Build TRIM 400-Black Vinyl PAINT 912-Sunflower Yellow
