1967 Chevrolet Corvette 427 Big Block Convertible
- General Information
New in our showroom!
This rare and original 1967 Chevy Corvette C2 convertible 427 in the stunning and rare color combination of Lyndale Blue metallic with matching blue interior and white striped Stinger hood (427 Big block cars only) and white convertible top. Wow!
This amazing Corvette is equipped with one of the most desirable engines, the famous L36 coded 427 390hp big block, hooked up to a manual 4 speed Muncie transmission. It's also loaded with many special options and a very rare car indeed. We think the engine and trans are correct and original for the car, as the date codes and vin stamps are there and appear original and match the car's vin and the GM production info on the tank sticker. The suffix stamp on the block (IL code) is also correct for a '67 Corvette 427 with a manual 4-speed, which also states this car is as correct as can be. The interior tags and Vin tag are original ones as well, not repro's as you see them in many Corvettes.
All that combined with the fact that this amazing car also comes with its factory original Tank sticker and first owner Protecto plate card and its original manual just makes it a well documented car as well. Important, as many 427's are faked cars and originally never came with this great engine. So this car is as good as it gets and besides it's a great car to own and drive, it's also a great investment grade collector car.
The car is all original, and has nice options. The blue interior and the stinger hood with white stripes, combined with its white convertible top, just makes this car one of the more desirable color combinations around. It's a stunner stinger, so to speak,
The 67' Corvettes are the most wanted and most desirable model year around, especially the 427 big block cars with their special stinger style hoods and great engine torque and unique sound and smoothness in the way the run. A very rare and highly desirable investment grade car. It was restored to NCRS the highest standards with only original parts and correct fasteners and details. But is also not over restored and only useful for car shows, no sir, this car was also built to be driven and enjoyed, it's not just a trailer queen.
PTTM will also perform a complete inspection of the car to make sure it doesn't only look good, but runs and drives good as well. It will also receive some small detail upgrades and a full oil-servicing job so it will leave our showroom turn key. So no work needed when the new owner will receive the keys.
Of all 67' Corvette convertibles build there were only approximately Around 1400, 427/390 hp 4 speed cars build
And this, combined with its rare original factory Lyndale blue metallic and blue interior color and its other option list, makes this car probably one of a handful ever produced. And with this car being documented and numbers match makes it even more desirable and rare as not many are left today that are real original and in this condition, guaranteed! It's also one of only a hand full convertible cars ever produced with the rare 3.73 anti slip diff rear axle package. And this is all documented, original and proven!
We think the car has perfect 9,5-of 10 points in paint, Perfect and highly detailed underside and the interior is simply breathtaking and still very original and functional. The 390 HP engine is one of the fastest around and very easy to maintain against with its hydraulic lifter cam and single 4bbl carb and intake, as the 425+ Hp cars had solid lifters and 3x2 carbs that are just much harder to maintain. The correct style side exhaust just gives this car that extra appeal and amazing sound. The factory correct rally wheels are also still with the car, but the wheels you see on the car are repro's with more roadworthy tires, as the original ones are too old to be used safely.
All in all this Corvette 427 is a highly collectible car that will grow in value by the day and in the meantime it will give great pleasure and joy to its new owner. It just doesn't get any better than this! Cruising down the boulevard with its open side pipes is just great fun and will get you many thumbs up from every petrol head and classic car fan. It will also for sure win awards on any car show you might attend with it. It's one of the most original and unmolested, undamaged C2 Corvette we have ever seen.
Finding a car of this magnitude with complete restoration and documentation, factory tank sticker, Owner Protecto plate card, and its body and drivetrain codes correct is really rare, and it's an absolute rarity. As most restored Corvette's have replacement engines and have no actual proof of being truly original. And with the car being also a genuine Lyndale blue metallic car, it's a holy grail for sure, as that's one of the most desirable colors for any Corvette.
The 427 Corvette is just a great car to drive and enjoy, especially in combination with the side exhaust and manual 4 speed transmission. A 4 speed car just gives much more power to the rear axle, and you can really feel that. And with the 67 model being the first year of the 4 wheel disc brake package, it's also a car that brakes very good. For sure, the 1967 Corvette is also one of the most desirable C2 corvette's around today. And with the Performance 427 big block 4-speed, you just can't go wrong.
So if you ever dreamed of owning one of the fastest car’s in the 60s, with one of the best performance engines available and in a stunning color combo, restored, documented and ready to enjoy. Well then don't wait too long as this might be the car you are looking for. And we have a feeling, just like other high-quality Corvette’s we had in the past, that this one won't be around for long.
