Please Note: Just for clarification purposes, his is the third time I have had to relist this car in three days. eBay originally put the car in as a 1964 Corvette so it would not come up in Advanced Search if you were searching for a 1967 Corvette. Instead of revising it eBay makes you start all over again. Then, esterday I redo the entire listing and the Title was now 1967, ut no Chevrolet Corvette. So, gain it would not pick up if your were searching for a 1967 Chevrolet Corvette. Bizarro. So, ow we are trying again for the third time. There is NOTHING WRONG with the car, his is all an eBay software nightmare. Sorry for any confusion.

I am helping a friend sell his Corvette. He bought this car less than a year ago and is selling only because he has decided he should have a convertible here in Southern CA. So, f there are any mid-year trades please send us a note or call. The previous owner had been a member of NCRS for over 20 years and had been an avid Corvette Collector since he was a young man. The owner is extremely picky about his cars and is fastidious with maintenance, etailing and care to his vehicles. He is available to discuss the car and I will be happy to pass his number on to perspective buyers.


Just as a matter of reference I have owned ten mid-years in my life. I have been a member of NCRS for over 25 years. The last ten years of my life have been based around restoring and collecting classic cars. I have been a Concour Judge at various venues around Southern CA. I strongly believe in Southern CA Classic Cars as the nicest examples on the Planet. This is one of those cars.


DESCRIPTION

The 1967 Corvette Coupe featured here is an astounding specimen of a very original survivor low mileage type car that has been through a thorough cosmetic restoration completed about five years ago. The cars paint was reconditioned and the mechanical aspects of the car have been addressed as well, ut this is mostly a completely original car that has simply been maintained to perfection its entire life.

This gorgeous Goodwood Green Corvette was originally optioned with a 327-300hp Engine, Positraction, C, Power Steering, inted Glass an AM/FM Radio and Aluminum Bolt-On Wheels. The car now rides on a set of reproduction high quality Bolt-Ons as the original wheels were sold years ago and are not with the car. The car also has a set of American Racing Wheels and Tires that are available to go with the car separately at a reasonable price (see pictures).

The production date on this car was 4 October 1966. It was delivered to Truman Baker Chevrolet in Searcy, R (See NCRS Shipping Data Report Pic). The original owner brought it to California in 1975 and has been here ever since. See picture of front windshield CA Inspection Sticker from 1975.

Body and Paint

Let’s make one thing perfectly clear, he number one thing to look for in any collector piece is the finest body possible. Factory original bodies on Corvettes are nearly impossible to find these days. I have been looking at and studying and restoring Corvettes for almost 40 years and this body has to rank near the very top of the list.

When the car was repainted it was stripped to the glass, rimered, locked judicially and painted. A lot of the original seams are still visible in the car, it was not overworked to perfection, oreover left original, clearly demonstrating just how original and untouched it is. I can see no signs of body work or damage anywhere on this car. All panels are crisp and shut-lines are nearly perfect (almost odd for a C2). Especially the notorious Coupe doors at the front that sometimes had huge gaps, ven from the factory. I took closeup pictures of every door gap, ood and tops of the doors so you can clearly see what I am talking about. I would call this body a #1, specially if you like a very original look.

Be sure to study the upper to lower panel “peaks” and note the sharpness to those lines all the way around the car.

The paint work on this car is extremely high-caliber and was done by a discriminating shop that knew what they were doing. There is easily $15K-$20K worth of high-end paint work on this automobile. There is no overspray anywhere to be found. The paint is flat and mirror-like and quite frankly is as good as it gets. All rubber and window felt appear to be like new. The original tinted window glass is intact, xcept for the front windshield that was replaced sometime prior to 1975 with high-quality PPG Safety Glass.

The Chome on the car is a 9.8 out of 10, ith very minimal scratches anywhere to be found. I believe the chrome bumpers may have been redone, ut could be original and just in outstanding (SoCal) condition. My own 64 Corvette has the original bumpers (58K mile example) and when I compare the chrome side by side they look identical.
The trim and emblems are all original and not perfect, owever they are perfectly awesome. Instead of cheap replicas they are wonderfully patina-ed and representative of a life spent in a garage and carefully handled. The original gas-cap door is the original lacquer paint and original paint in the crossed flags. Personally I love the look of the original unrestored cap because it shows how good the color match is to the rest of the body and has a really nice patina to the crossed-flags. Again, ot perfect but far better than faux reproduction parts. Having said all that there is a replacement gas-cap door that comes with the car should you want a brand new look. The painted area is flat back on that piece and would need to be painted to match the new finish on the rest of the body.
There is also a brand new set of reproduction door handles, ut personally I would never replace the originals that are likely an 8.5 - 9.0 out of 10. However, hey are nearly 50 years old and of course have some minor scratches (see closeup picture).

During the restoration, he original 300HP engine was thoroughly gone thru in terms of bringing it up to tip-top running condition. It was nicely cleaned and detailed with some painting and the addition of some 327/350 valve covers. We recently performed a compression check on the engine and found 140 -145 on all cylinders. We don’t believe this engine has ever been apart and runs out as nicely as I have ever seen on a 327-300hp Vette engine. It idles smooth and does not smoke. It is a very strong running engine and almost feels like it is brand new. The engine currently has an Edelbrock Carburator 4-barrel on it and runs impeccably. The Exhaust System is all brand new.

The front-end was partially rebuilt and drives down the road straight as an arrow with no shakes, himmy’s or rattles of any kind. $1805 was spent in Sept 2012. At that time the Lower Ball Joints were replaced, s well as Tie-Rod Ends, nstalled new Rear Shocks and Spring Link Bushings. They also adjusted the Steering Gear Backlash, djusted Power Steering Control Valve for equal pressure and a complete Four-Wheel Alignment.

There is a new steel radiator currently in the car and a correct brand new Harrison Aluminum Radiator comes with the car in a box. The brakes are completely rebuilt including brakes lines, otors, alipers and pads. It brakes with authority.

The Transmission has been serviced and may have been rebuilt in the past, ut we have no documentation to support this claim. Unfortunately most of the records from the past have been lost and do not come with the car. There are some receipts for recent work over the past six years.

In 2012 the AC Compressor was replaced with clutch, ilter drier, lushed
A/C line, dded oil, vacuated and recharged system. Hi pressure 220psi, ow 33psi, ent temp 46 degrees.

A Detroit Speed Electric Headlight Door Kit was put in the car in 2013. These make the headlights work smoothly and efficiently.

The Undercarriage is completely rust-free and in very tidy condition for an original survivor car.


Interior
The Interior is almost 100% original and absolutely stunning. The Carpets were replaced sometime in the last five years. The door panels, he dash, he headliner and all interior trim is a 9.5 out of 10 and for a survivor a 10+. The gauges I think were probably removed at some point and cleaned to perfection as I just cannot imagine them being this nice after 48 years of life.
I cannot adequately describe just how nice this original interior is, will let the pictures tell the story. At the end of 2012 the seats were rebuilt with new foam and the original leather seat skins were reinstalled. Again, his goes to show just how well this car was loved and taken care of.

All of the interior bits are exemplary in condition. Overall this interior is a strong 9+. There is a teak steering wheel on the car and it is in near perfect condition. Teak was not an option in 1967 but it sure looks gorgeous with the Saddle Leather Interior. The clear vinyl mats that are currently showing were just for display purposes and came out of my 64 Corvette, hey do not go with the car. There is a set of black carpet style mats with the Corvette Logo on them that do come with the car.

The Interior Door Sils are new and are very high quality.

A Rare Goodwood Green AC Coupe in near #1 Condition. One of 3788 factory Air Cars in 1967. The car is simply stunning.

Everything on this little gem is exceptional. It runs and drives like a dream. It feels almost brand new. There are zero issues. You will not find a nicer body & paint, ide and mechanical survivor specimen in my estimation.

This is a car that would be a great show car or just a gorgeous and unique driver for cross-country driving or rallies.
