The 1967 Corvette Sting Ray was the last Corvette of the second generation, and five years of refinements made it the best of the line. Although it was meant to be a redesign year, its intended successor the C3 was found to have some undesirable aerodynamic traits. Duntov demanded more time in the wind tunnel to devise fixes before it went into production.
Changes for 1967 were modest: Five smaller front fender vents replaced the three larger ones, and flat-finish rockers sans ribbing conferred a lower, less chunky appearance. New was a single backup light, mounted above the license plate. The previous models' wheel covers gave way to slotted six-inch Rally wheels with chrome beauty rings and lug nuts concealed behind chrome caps. Interior alterations were modest and included revised upholstery, and the handbrake moved from beneath the dash to between the seats. The convertible's optional hardtop was offered with a black vinyl cover, which was a fad among all cars at the time. With potential buyers anticipating the car's overdue redesign, sales for the Sting Ray's final year totaled 22,940, down over 5,000 units from 1966 results. That's what makes a nice '67 a rare find!
This example is a beautifully restored car in prime condition for both weekend fun and any event you would want to go to. The exterior is painted rally red with, of course, a black stinger stripe on the hood. The black vinyl hard top is in great condition, as is the black soft top. The hard top is a rare find, especially in good condition, and is said to be original to this car. Finding exterior defect on this Corvette is quite a challenge!
Under the hood sits a Tri-Power Chevrolet 427 V8; quite possibly the most desirable choice of engine for these cars. When dialed in and set up properly, a Tri-Power 427 'Vette is a force to be reckoned with. This car runs, drives, and sounds amazing—just like a Corvette should. We simply cannot stress what a smooth runner this car is, and it fires right up every time! The engine bay is clean and tidy with lots of new parts and chrome goodies. The 427 is hooked ddup to a close ration M-21 4-speed transmission and the original Posi-Trac rear end. This car is also equipped with power steering and power disc brakes.
The interior is nearly immaculate, and is in completely stock form aside from the subtle addition of kick panel speakers; a necessity for anyone wanting to cruise with some classic tunes! The original wood steering wheel is the perfect accent against the black, and the AM/FM radio is perfect to pair with the speakers. The black leather is all in great condition, and all normal wear items are as well. The condition of the interior alone speaks for the quality restoration this car received!
