Car of the Day: 1967 Corvette for Sale
Today’s car we want to share is LOT S160.1. This Star Car is scheduled to cross the block Saturday, January 14. It has had a frame off restoration, and the experts estimate its value at $190,000 – $220,000. The 1967 Corvette is the last year for the second-generation Corvette.
We learn from the Mecum’s listing that this beautiful Corvette convertible is a “four-time NCRS Top Flight award winner, has earned Performance Verification, and ultimately the coveted NCRS Duntov Mark of Excellence, arguably the most sought-after Corvette award. Achieving the Duntov Award marks the car as equal to or better than when the car came off the assembly line.”
There were 22,940 1967 Corvettes produced, and only 2,325 were painted the beautiful Sunfire Yellow. This convertible has a Black top and black interior. Sitting on Rally wheels the car has both the distinct 427 and Sting Ray badging. The competition-derived Stinger hood treatment brings out the champion look.
This beautiful 1967 L71 Convertible is powered by the 427/435 HP engine. 1967 was the first year of the 3×2 Holley intake system and the only year it appeared in the mid-year body design. Other features include transistorized ignition, 4-speed manual transmission, and AZ 3.55 Positraction differential.
