1967 Chevrolet Corvette 427/435HP- All #s match!
One of the icons of the American road: this incredibly original and beautifully restored 1967 427 Corvette coupe is equipped with the wonderful 435 horsepower, Tri-Power "Turbojet" engine and close-ratio 4 speed. It's finished in Elkhart Blue with a black hood stinger. It is a REAL numbers matching car. And that old line, "You could write a book about it" won't be necessary; the massive amount of documentation that comes with this spectacular car is quite impressive. If you're really into Vett...es, this is the '67 you're looking for as it would hold its own in ANY Corvette collection. This beauty scored 95% (Top Flight) at its first National Corvette Restorers Society (NCRS) judging, was taken home, massaged a little more and will most likely score higher if you'd like to take it out for another round of judging. In the 49 years since it came off the line in St. Louis, this beauty has only been driven an average of 926 miles per year. Let's first talk about the car, then we'll cover what we know about it, which is a lot. The basics: Elkhart Blue (rare, it's estimated that approximately 65 1967 427/435HP coupes were produced in this color), with black interior. It came with (and it still has the original) close ratio 4-speed, AM/FM Radio, transistor ignition, "offroad service exhaust", a 3.70 Positaction rear-end, and, of course, that famous 435HP, Tri-Power 427 that's been professionally rebuilt to factory specs. All that information comes off the ORIGINAL tank sticker that's mounted on the ORIGINAL gas tank. No secrets, no mystery. ALL of the numbers on all of the major components have been verified as matching. The current owner (a real serious car guy and collector) took his time (about ten years), and with the help of an NCRS judge, got the car into the awesome condition it's in. Another really cool thing about this car is that most of the interior is also original! The detailed history of the car's four previous owners (back to the '70s) provides not only who they were and when they owned the car but also notes on each of them! Yes, you'll find numbers matching 1967 427/435HP Corvettes out there for less money, but how many of them have the ownership history and documentation that this car has? The car comes with an extra set of wheels (reproduction bolt ons with white letter tires - pictured). As Corvette technical experts will notice when looking at the build sheet, the car came from the factory with RPO P92 whitewall tires. The QB1 redlines that are on it now look great and were offered as a Corvette option in '67. It also comes with a set of side exhaust pipes that are not in show condition. When the acknowledged experts on Corvette excellence, the judges of the NCRS were given their chance to examine this car from stem to stern, bolt by bolt, they came away impressed and we'll be shocked if you don't. Corvette fans can't help but grin when they meet a great Vette. This is one of those special cars. Once seen, you can't wait to tell your friends about it. PLEASE be sure to make an appointment to view the vehicle in person as we have multiple indoor storage locations.
