Marlboro Maroon Metallic Corvette convertible. 427 big block, tri-power, 4-speed, side exhaust and bolt on wheels. Based on all of the original big block options, we believe this was a 427/435 hp car from the factory. It retains the original 6500 redline tachometer, 80psi oil pressure gauge 427/435 hp option, original big block sway bar and heavy duty suspension with correct big block half shaft bolts. The engine is a 1968 Corvette high performance replacement big block that is not original to the car, but definitely looks right at home with original Winters intake and tri-power three deuces on top. Gorgeous 1967 mid-year body covered in correct Marlboro Maroon Metallic paint over a gorgeous stingray roadster body that shimmers a little more than the original paint. Nice black real leather interior that is in very good condition with newer door panels. Some wear on the drivers seat from enjoying the car. Nice dash with original gauges and nice black soft top with no major wear. This American Dream Machine is incredible to drive, launched by a Muncie 4-speed on the floor, backed by a big block heavy duty suspension, new 335 gears and throaty side exhaust, rolling on, one year only, 1967 turbine style bolt on wheels with major curb appeal. These wheels can be exchanged for stock Corvette rally rims to save some $.

"The Chevrolet Corvette (C2)
(also known as the Chevrolet Corvette Sting Ray
) is the second generation of the Chevrolet Corvette, produced by the Chevrolet division of General Motors for the 1963 to 1967 model years."
"The 1967 Corvette Sting Ray was the last Corvette of the second generation, and five years of refinements made it the best of the line. Although it was meant to be a redesign year, its intended successor the C3 was found to have some undesirable aerodynamic traits. Duntov demanded more time in the wind tunnel to devise fixes before it went into production.
Changes were again modest: Five smaller front fender vents replaced the three larger ones, and flat-finish rockers sans ribbing conferred a lower, less chunky appearance. New was a single backup light, mounted above the license plate. The previous models' wheel covers gave way to slotted six-inch Rally wheels with chrome beauty rings and lug nuts concealed behind chrome caps. Interior alterations were modest and included revised upholstery, and the handbrake moved from beneath the dash to between the seats. The convertible's optional hardtop was offered with a black vinyl cover, which was a fad among all cars at the time. The 427 was available with a 1282 ft/min (605 L/s) Holley triple two-barrel carburetor arrangement, which the factory called Tri-power. The ultimate Corvette engine for 1967 was coded L88, even wilder than the L89, and was as close to a pure racing engine as Chevy had ever offered in regular production. Besides the lightweight heads and bigger ports, it came with an even hotter camshaft, stratospheric 12.5:1 compression, an aluminum radiator, small-diameter flywheel, and a single huge Holley four-barrel carburetor. Although the factory advertised L88 rating was 430 bhp at 4600 rpm, the true rating was said to be about 560 bhp at 6400 rpm. The very high compression ratio required 103-octane racing fuel, which was available only at select service stations. Clearly this was not an engine for the casual motorist. When the L88 was ordered, Chevy made several individual options mandatory, including Positraction, the transistorized ignition, heavy-duty suspension, and power brakes, as well as RPO C48, which deleted the normal radio and heater to cut down on weight and discourage the car's use on the street. As costly as it was powerful at an additional $1,500 over the base $4,240.75 price the L88 engine and required options were sold to a mere 20 buyers that year. With potential buyers anticipating the car's overdue redesign, sales for the Sting Ray's final year totaled 22,940, down over 5,000 units from 1966 results. Meanwhile, Chevrolet readied its third-generation Corvette for the 1968 model year."American Dream MachinesAt American Dream Machines, we typically have over 100 quailty classic cars and trucks in stock and for sale.
