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

This 1980 Corvette offers the kind of bang for the buck that is getting harder to find these days. For that very reasonable price up there you get a matching-numbers car in awesome colors with a lot of recent work so its ready to enjoy. Investment? Nah, just an awesome Vette thats ready to enjoy and which will turn a lot of heads on the street. Code 47 Dark Brown is this Vettes original color, so its easy to see why it was changed to bright red when it was repainted about 20 years ago. With all the downright wacky colors GM was using during this period, this car looks like a Vette should, even 35 years later. Its fairly well finished with a decent gloss and everything matches pretty well, although the nose cone is slightly different, just like the factory would have done it. No stripes or other noteworthy modifications, just that classic shape finished to a factory-like standard. Its the right red, too, not too bright and not too tomato-like, so it really looks good, making this the kind of car thatll be welcome just about anywhere. Its been nicely maintained since it was painted, so the chin isnt all beat up, the rocker panels are protected by their own trim, and correct emblems were installed as needed to make it look like the factory intended. Tan leather is a fantastic choice with both the original brown and recent red paint and its in fantastic condition. There are probably some new pieces, including the seat covers, door panels, and carpets, and the contrast with the exterior bodywork is dramatic. Nobodys going to argue that it doesnt look fantastic. There are light signs of age here and there, including a broken turn signal lever, but overall it appears that this car has always been treated as something special. Even the steering wheel looks pretty darned good for its age. Factory equipment includes a tilt column, cold A/C, and power windows, and along with a rather lengthy list of standard features, theres no such thing as a stripped Corvette. T-tops give you that open-air motoring experience with better weather protection than a convertible and the original AM/FM/8-track stereo offers some retro entertainment for cruising. The original, numbers-matching L48 350 cubic inch V8 remains under the forward-tilting hood and unlike so many of its siblings, it remains almost entirely stock. All the factory equipment including the twin-snorkel air cleaner and even the original carburetor, which means this car hasnt been raced or abused. Its pretty original and in good working order, with R134a refrigerant in the A/C system and a custom pipe in place of the original catalytic converter. The TH350 3-speed automatic transmission shifts properly and with a large stack of maintenance receipts, you can buy this one with confidence. It also includes rather tall 3.08 gears out back, making this Vette a fantastic highway cruiser ready for a long trip. Those cool 3-piece wheels give it an updated look and carry 255/50/16 Goodyears that are probably due for an upgrade. Affordable fun with enough performance to earn respect on the street, this Corvette represents one heck of a big bang for the buck. Call today!
