AutoHunter Spotlight: 1967 Chevrolet Corvette L79

The top small-block for ‘67


Featured on AutoHunter, the online auction platform driven by ClassicCars.com, is this restored 1967 Chevrolet Corvette convertible. Powered by a numbers-matching L79 327 backed by a rebuilt four-speed manual, this Corvette is one of 336 convertibles produced with the L79 and air conditioning. Notable options include power steering and disc brakes, AM/FM radio and Positraction rear axle. Finished in green with a tan leather interior, this C2 Corvette will include build documentation, the NCRS record and a clear Florida title.

This Goodwood Green Corvette was originally sold by Curtis Chevrolet in Washington, D.C. and more recently restored by Gerry Yursis to National Corvette Restorers Society (NCRS) standards. The exterior is complemented by a tan convertible top. Options include driver-side mirror and rear-mounted antenna. The selling dealer notes the presence of a few small rock chips.

The turbine-style 15-inch wheels are wrapped in 205/75 Winston whitewall tires.

The cockpit is fitted with Saddle leather bucket seats with matching dashboard, door panels and carpeting. Features include Soft-Ray tinted glass (A01), shoulder harness (A85), factory air conditioning (C60), clock, fire extinguisher and embroidered floor mats.

Instrumentation includes a 160-mph speedometer, 7,000-rpm tachometer and auxiliary gauges for the fuel level, coolant temperature, oil pressure and voltage. The five-digit mechanical odometer reads 11,506 miles, but the true mileage on the chassis is unknown. Approximately 2,000 miles have been put on the car since its restoration.

The numbers-matching 350-horsepower Turbo-Fire small-block is paired with a rebuilt Muncie M21 close-ratio four-speed manual and Positraction rear axle. The clutch and bell housing have been replaced with units featuring a “403” stamping, plus the master cylinder and carburetor also have been replaced. Along with videos that show start-up and a drive-by, a series of photos in the gallery of the auction page show the stampings for various parts for the vehicle.

The auction for this 1967 Chevrolet Corvette convertible equipped with the L79 327 ends on Friday, April 14, 2023, at 2:45 p.m. (PDT) If you wish to see this car in the flesh, you can view it at the AutoHunter booth at the 2023 Barrett-Jackson Palm Beach Auction at the South Florida Fairgrounds.

Though his first love is Citroen, he fell for muscle cars after being seduced by 1950s finned flyers—in fact, he’s written two books on American muscle. But please don’t think there is a strong American bias because foreign weirdness is never far from his heart. With a penchant for underground music from the 1960-70s, Diego and his family reside in the Southwest.
