In the early 1960s Harley Earl retired, and new ideas came with new leadership. Bill Mitchell, GM’s new chief of design, had an incredibly successful idea: Stingray! Tradition was broken as the totally redesigned Corvette was offered as a coupe or a convertible with 4 engine choices. Both featured a streamlined appearance and improved passenger accommodations. The American public loved 1963-1967 Stingrays because they were fast machines that looked supersonic even when parked. They remain the most collectible Corvettes today.
The Sting Rays were the automotive success story of the year. Chevrolet had to add a second shift to its St. Louis, Missouri assembly plant to keep up with demand, and dealers reported owners waiting months for their cars to be built. By the end of the model year, Corvette production would surpass the 20,000-unit milestone.
Some consider the ’67 the best looking vette of all time. It’s styling, although basically the same, was cleaner and it had five functional front fender louvers. Minor changes were made to the interior. The most noticable was the relocation of the parking brake from under the dash to the center console.
Fitted to this car; a Correct Date Code 327 cubic inch V8 engine with a Holley 4-bbl. The transmission is the factory optional Powerglide Automatic Transmission. The exterior is Marina Blue with a Bright Blue Vinyl interior in great condition, rally wheels, Power Steering, 4-wheel disc brakes, and AM-FM Radio with Cassette. This classic American Roadster is extremely solid and fun to drive. This car would be a great addition to any collection as it is one of the most collectable of all Corvettes.
