1967 Chevrolet Corvette

This 1967 Chevrolet Corvette Sting Ray in Rally Red with red interior has only done very few miles since it had a complete frame-off restoration about 9 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.

The interior is red vinyl - code 407. Note the parking brake was relocated this year from under the dash to the center console.
