1967 Chevrolet Corvette Big Block
The Chevrolet Corvette is a class all by itself. As America’s premier sports car, the Corvette has a following that is one of the most dedicated to authenticity in the entire world. Judging for the Corvette is a task that requires a fine eye for detail and a documented history of each nut and bolt. That’s what makes this Corvette so special; quite simply it’s a nicely restored car that has been cared for to the ultimate degree with several awards to prove it. A close look at this fine Corvette reveals no flaws from any angle.
Offered here is one of the most powerful Corvettes ever to grace the road. While Chevrolet built 8,504 coupes in 1967, very few were fitted with Chevy’s 427 cubic-inch big-block that conservatively generated over 400 horsepower. This spectacular example is fitted with a four-speed transmission and optional side pipes. This Corvette comes with two sets of authentic wheels; a set of optional knock-offs and Chevrolet’s Rally wheels. It’s also a former Bloomington Gold winner and received a Best-in-Class at Moroso. A full restoration was undertaken 15 years ago and it has been lovingly cared for ever since. A close inspection reveals a beautifully maintained interior as well as a nicely detailed engine compartment. Many enthusiasts have called the 1967 model the best Corvette ever built and this one surely proves it with its elegant style and incredible power.
The Corvette remains an icon of the American sports car and good examples are very hard to find. This Corvette is a quality car that can serve as the standard for all others. As the last year of the C2 generation that was introduced in 1963, the 1967 Corvette is a highly refined automobile that offers power and reliability. The legendary street battles of the 1960s were ruled by the Corvette, and when lined up at the red light on a summer night no Hemi or big-block Ford was safe against it. With its powerful big block V-8 and its dedication to authenticity, this is a Corvette that is worthy of any show and will surely be the centerpiece of any collection.
