AutoHunter Spotlight: 1967 Chevrolet Corvette convertible

427 big-block + 3x2s = dreamy

-

Among C2 Corvettes, the 1963 Split-window is the most iconic, but almost everyone wants a 427 ’67. That was the year that the 435-horsepower L71 made its debut, as well as the L89 aluminum-head option and the race-inspired L88. For those reasons, the 1967 Corvette arguably is the ultimate incarnation of Chevrolet’s sports car.

One of those 1967 Corvettes is currently featured on AutoHunter, the online auction platform driven by ClassicCars.com. This convertible has had two prior Ohio owners and is powered by a solid-lifter 427 with tri-carb induction backed by a close-ratio four-speed manual transmission. Features include transistorized ignition, F41 suspension, original exhausts with sidepipes, and AM/FM radio. Refinished in the original shade of green with white “Stinger” and a white convertible top, this C2 Corvette is available now from the selling dealer with the original accessory hardtop, factory documentation plus restoration photos, inspection report from Corvette expert Pancho Thompson and a clear Ohio title.

  1. I don’t know who is responsible for writing the script on the 67 Corvette or more importantly who edited it but they must lack a basic knowledge of Corvettes particularly C2’s. The steering wheel on this car is not a “wooden ” steering wheel it is the standard “mahogany” plastic steering wheel. It’s bad enough to write the wrong description to begin with but to have an editor miss this before it’s published doesn’t speak well.
