The 1967 Corvette – A Sports Car Ahead of Its Time
1967 Corvette Specifications, Options, Costs, Colors, Facts, and Details
The 1967 Corvette Sting Ray sports car has some of the best-known options, specifications, costs, colors, facts, and details of any vehicle in history and deserves to be among the top 10 most famous vehicles in automotive history as well as one of the top collector vehicles in the world today.
Various reasons were behind General Motors’ decision to extend the production of the current model for one more year. One theory was that the release of the C3 had been intentionally delayed to work on the Chevrolet Camaro in 1967. In spite of what critics and enthusiasts predicted, the C2 1967 Corvette Sting Ray wasn’t actually the first of a new generation, but it was the most refined of the second-generation Corvettes.
Throughout this article, we will be discussing the 1967 Corvette Specifications and its pricing, colors, facts, and other details with accompanying photos of some of the best restored and original Corvettes.
