1967 Chevrolet Corvette

This 1967 Chevrolet Corvette Sting Ray in Goodwood Green with Saddle interior not only is powered by the mighty 427 V8 but is in fantastic condition, scoring 99.8 in a regional NCRS show.

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 saddle – code 421. Note the parking brake was relocated this year from under the dash to the center console.
