1967 Chevrolet Corvette 427

This 1967 Chevrolet Corvette Sting Ray in Marlboro Maroon with white interior has only done around 500 miles since it was restored about 10 years ago.

This was the last year of the second generation Corvettes that had been around since 1963. Highly refined during those 5 years, Chevrolet had really got it right this year - it was the cleanest looking of the 1963-67 generation.

Gone were the three fake front louvers from the previous year and replaced with 5 functioning ones.

You can clearly see the bulge of the stinger hood which was put on the 427 equipped cars so that the bigger engine could be accommodated.

The interior is black and white with vinyl seats - code 455AC. Note the manual transmission and the parking brake relocated this year from under the dash to the center console.
