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 Vette 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 and the performance 3.73 rear end gears. It's also equipped with some special options and overall a very rare and desirable 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 tanksticker. 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 Vette's. We will be more than happy to provide and show you all these points in our showroom.
The car was sold new from Rosenthal Chevrolet in Virginia to its first owner in the same state. The first owner had the car for over 30 years before he passed it on to the second owner who also lived in Virginia. This might well be the reason why this car has survived all these years in great shape as Virginia is a dry sunny state. Later on the car was sold to the third owner who lived in Arkansas and that's where we found the car.
The second owner mildly restored the car and had it repainted for the first time in around 2003/4 but he left the door frames original as the where still in great condition and this way everybody can see how well the car was preserved over the years. He also had the complete drivetrain, steering and brake system professionally rebuild although the car only had around 90k original miles on the drivetrain and the complete frame was coated although the car only had around 90k original miles on the drivetrain. He left the interior more or less alone as that was still in superb condition and up until today all the major interior pieces are the original ones and look amazing !.
The third owner made only some minor, more driver friendly, changes such as installing a better aluminum radiator for better cooling, and he installed a new carb and some other smaller items. But all the original components are still with the car and if required the can all be installed back. He also purchased an extra set of steel rally wheels, which you see on the pictures here, with new trim rings and center caps that were equipped with better and more roadworthy redline tires for a safer drive, and great looks but the factory original wheels are also still with the car.
All that combined with the fact that this amazing car also comes with its factory original Tank sticker, first owner Protecto plate card, its original onwer manual and a list of the previous three owners. This just makes it a very well documented car. Important, as many 427's are faked cars and originally never came with this great engine. The car also comes with a copy of the NCRS Topflight award the car received some years ago, meaning this car was judged and inspected and it received the highest award for its condition and originality. So this car is as good as it gets and besides it's a great car to own and drive, it's, combined with its documentation, 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' Vette convertibles build there were only aprox. 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 truly 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 a perfect 9,5-of 10 points in paint with only a very minor chip here and there but nothing really noticeable. The underside of the car is clean and detailed but its not over restored and and can still be driven and used as it suposed to be. The factory rare blue matching interior is simply breathtaking and everything here is still very original and all the gauges and buttons are fully functional, even the clock still ticks!
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 give this car that extra appeal and amazing V8 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 to old to be used safely.
All in all this Vette 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. Its one of the most original and unmolested, undamaged C2 Corvette we have ever seen. It's in near concourse quality, but not a real trailer queen, so this car can actually be used and driven.
The small upgrades it received from its last owner really makes this Vette perfect for longer drives or comfortable Sunday cruises. All in all we think this is one of the nicest 67' 390hp 427 4 speed Vette's we have seen in a while. The car goes like an arrow, drives straight and smooth and the gearbox and clutch work sublime. The sound of this Big block 427 is just mind blowing, and for sure one of the best V8 sound any car has ever produced through its side exhausts, you just need to here this in person to really be able to apriciate it. All in all a very fun car to drive and combined with the manual 4 speed trans and its 3.73 rear-end gears makes this car FAST as well. Even modern day Porsches and other sportscars will have there hands full to keep up with this 50+ year ol' scool real Musclecar!
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 thats 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 vette is also one of the most desirable and valueable C2 corvette's around today. And with the Performance 427 big block 4 speed you just can't go wrong. Car appraizers and market value followers such as Haggerty rate this car around 150/175k and we have seen them getting sold at acutions for even more, and some of these car were not even documented !
With this car beeing all original, numbers match, restored and in great original condition, having one of the most desireable color combinations around , and comes with its factory tanksticker, Protecto plate, original owners manual and spare keys!, owners history known and its NCRS top flight award, makes this for sure a holy grail in the Corvette world today.
So if you ever dreamed of owning one of the fastest car’s in the 60's, 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.
