800 Derita Road, Ste. A
This 1967 Chevrolet Corvette is the product of an awesome restoration. It has the kind of accurately authentic look that has been awarded at Bloomington Gold and Top Flights awards from the NCRS. So look over every inch of a coupe that is exceptionally awesome.
Before we dig into the details of the time, care, and investment in getting this coupe looking so great, we should also acknowledge how distinct this one has been from day one. After all, 1967 was the final year for the C2 Sting Ray, and Goodwood Green was a single-year offering. Bart Starr was even given a Goodwood Green Corvette for winning the 1967 Super Bowl! Now that you understand the pedigree, take a look at the quality of this example. The full restoration was completed in 2016. It has received NCRS Top Flight regional awards in 2016 and 2019. It was Gold Certified at the 2019 Bloomington Gold event. That means this was judged to be restored within 95 percent accuracy of factory standards. And Bloomington Gold judges look at everything right down to the bolts. The consignor states there was less than 200 miles on this since its restoration, and that's how it remains such a shining time capsule today. This pain-staking restoration used a donor car which had no prior fiberglass damage, but that didn't hold back the fanatical work to make the masterpiece you see today. These final-year C2s are free from some of the ornamentation of previous years, and so the crisp body panels really let you appreciate how this is the sleekest of the family. But sleeker doesn't mean it misses out on brightwork. The two-piece chrome bumpers, full window trim, and 15-inch Rally wheels have the kind of shine to complement the special paint perfectly.
The tan interior makes for a timeless color combo against the exterior green. On a car so highly awarded, of course it was born with this distinctive look inside and out. They invested nicely in here to get this feeling like day-one status, right down to details like the weave of the carpeting and bright knobs on the AM/FM stereo. When you sit in the low-back bucket seats and grab the chrome shifter, the atmosphere instantly gets nostalgic. The woodgrain 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 engine's status. For those times when the drive is spirited, one should notice this car was optioned with the shoulder belt.
The exceptional quality continues under the hood. The 327 cubic-inch V8 is the numbers-matching unit, and the whole engine bay has been restored to factory standards. It really impresses with the details - everywhere from the crisp Corvette-script valve covers, to the correct-style Holley four-barrel carburetor on top of L75-spec Corvette. More than just look terrific, we have the full list that documents how the mechanical components were correctly rebuilt and restored. It would take up too much space to list it all here, but please call for all the details on how they ensured that this award-winner is also strong-runner. The undercarriage looks as exceptionally fresh as the rest of the car, and you'll even spot nice details like the date-correct Positraction rear end. For the times when you enjoy this coupe out on the open road, the fully independent suspension, four-wheel disc brakes, and four-speed manual transmission combine to give you a level of control not found in many other '60s-style classics.
The sale comes complete with terrific documentation, including the factory buildsheet, original warranty card, reproduction window sticker, in-tact tank sticker, original spare tire mounted to a repainted wheel, owner's manual, NCRS shipping info, and build receipts. If you love the kind of distinction that can bring home car show hardware, you know you don't want to miss this awesome Sting Ray. Call now!
