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

Lets go backward in time to 1973 and put ourselves into this 1973 Chevrolet Corvette with a T style top, and the last year a Corvette would have chrome bumpers, (although only on the back of the car), and stainless rocker trim piece. Deep dish wheels, and that long hood, and small cockpit and rear deck, create the sports car America refers to as the Corvette. Exterior Classic White bathes this fiberglass bodied car. Hidden headlights within its shark nosed grille, the upward curved bumps for the front quarters, and the flying buttress rear B pillars that frame the vertical rear window are just a few of the highlights from this year. Other features are the exaggerated coke bottle design and that shiny rocker trim going with the flow of the side panels. On back are the quad of round taillights, and dual exhaust ports in rectangle form within the rear roll panel. A removable T top is nicely fitting with no signs of leakage and sports a bag to put each panel in when you want the open air. These panels are just a bit off color from the body so these may not have been involved in the respray. The Stingray name is back, and based on the shape it could be one gently flapping its outer wings, gracefully swimming along near the bottom of the ocean. 15-inch rally style wheels with deep dish chrome trim rings all wrapped in BFG Radial T/As are on all 4 corners. Interior Medium saddle leather, (dark tan if you will), buckets in high back form create the simple bucket seats for driver and passenger. A textured insert and smooth bolster are noted in their construction. These are bordered on the outside by sculpted design door panels that use the Saddle leather and some nifty Pumpkin accenting. A tan center console races past these buckets, and goes forward to the upsweeping dash middle. In the console, is a glovebox, and the chrome lever and knob shift lever and temp. and fan rolling wheel controls. On the upsweep is a cluster of 5 essential gauges, and the AM/FM radio. The wiper switch is on top, and AC vents are here too. This dash front sweeps upward at an angle, and in front of the driver utilizes dual circular deep inset gauges with a speedo and a tachometer. The original steering wheel is fronting these gauges. Gold carpet and carpeted floor mats flood the passenger floors and the rear storage area. This carpet is all clean and in non faded condition. As noted the T top panels are solid with interior matching covers, and exterior matching tops. Drivetrain Under the front flipping hood is a 350ci V8 L48. It has a beautiful machine steel gray look to it and is numbers matching Chevrolet block, and valve covers. All surfaces are nice and shiny, no corrosion, and nicely preserved. New heads, a new clutch, new camshaft and new brake master cylinder were recently put on. A single 4-barrel carb is a-top, and on back is a numbers matching Muncie M20 4-speed transmission. Way back is a 3.55 posi rear axle. Some yellow ignition wiring adds some contrast to this industrial looking mill environment, and headers are now on this mill. Undercarriage Much like showroom, no dirt or rust, all straight black sprayed steel looking great. C3 Corvette suspension is all around, and power disc brakes are on all wheels. Dual exhaust in very good condition snakes its way rearward and comes to this car courtesy Flowmaster. Drive-Ability This car started right up, and it was off to the test track. Here it performed very well, with good acceleration, smooth manual shifting, and nice power from the 350 cubes. All functions were working flawlessly. This neutral white as the driven snow color and paint just make this car, along with the sculptural body lines, and its nice to still see the chrome bumpers on the back. The interior is very comfy and warm to the eyes, as are the removable T top panels particularly when the sun is out! True to 1973 a powerful and visual example from this era of the C3 Corvette. 1Z37J3S408284 1-Chevrolet Z-Corvette 37-Coupe J-350ci V8 L48 190hp 3-1973 S-St. Louis, MO Assy Plant 408284-Sequential Unit Number TRIM TAG D24-November 24th 1972 Build TRIM 422-Dark Saddle Leather PAINT 910-Classic White
