1967 Corvette Stingray 427/435 (L71) Coupe; Goodwood Green over black, 4-Speed Manual, side pipes, transistor ignition.
This is an original 1967 Corvette Stingray in excellent condition with the 427cid V8 ‘Turbo-Jet’ (L71) producing 435 hp through the factory-optioned close-ratio 4-speed gearbox (M21). It features very clean, original ‘Goodwood Green’ (983) paint (re-sprayed) with original ‘Black Trim’ (STD) interior as well as the Special Front and Rear Suspension upgrade (F41), Soft Ray Tinted Glass (A01), and Dual Side Exhaust (N14). The PB AM/FM Radio (U69) and Positract Axle (G81) 3.55 ratio rear end round out the factory options listed on the original ‘tank tag’ (in hand). This car was sold new by Merollis Chevrolet (still in business) of East Detroit, MI and has stayed in Michigan through three owners, the latest for 17 years. Under the third owner, the car received a high quality re-spray of the as delivered color Goodwood Green and the engine was professionally updated and rebuilt. Recently, the carbs have been rebuilt and tuned and the transistor ignition has been restored. Based on the total production volume and the total RPO record information referenced through http://www.C2registry.org, this car is one of one configured with this type, color, trim, and options.
The condition of the car is excellent with bright as-new paint, straight body panels, and consistent panel gaps. The interior is complete and in excellent, original shape with minor patina on the chrome and trim pieces. The seats and carpet are excellent. The underside of the car is clean and original with a little ‘browning’ of the springs and some hardware but no other issues of note. It has been well cared for by true Corvette enthusiast owners and driven only in nice weather (more pictures available upon request).
The engine starts right up, idles well, and creates plenty of power. The car tracks straight/true, the transmission shifts positively, and there are no noises in the suspension. It is a wonderful car to drive and is ready to be enjoyed.
“In the Corvette world, three models have dominated the collector market: the 1957 with fuel injection, the 1963 Split-Window Sting Ray with fuel injection, and the 1967 Sting Ray with the top horsepower 427 engines. Other years may have offered better performance, superior features, or better styling, but this threesome tops the value list.” - Sports Car Market
