In 1966, the 427 cubic inch was introduced in the Corvette and all 427 engine cars received special hoods. The high performance solid lifter 427 was initially listed at 450HP but for reasons unclear the rating, not the actual output, was reduced to 425HP shortly after introduction. It is also of note that some 390HP engines were rated at 400HP. Backup lights became standard and were incorporated into the existing rear inboard taillight housings.
The car has no signs of any accidents and is the beneficiary of an obviously recent frame off restoration and looks extremely striking in it's repainted original 'Marlboro Maroon' color paint with a Black interior and soft top. The car must be driven and seen to be truly appreciated - drives straight as an arrow with no strange road wobbles, shakes or rattles - a truly remarkable daily driver that will give any modern day sports car a run for it's money! The 4 speed manual transmission shifts smoothly through all the gears and the temperature always remains cool!
This is a rare opportunity to own a great daily driving and never abused example of a recently frame-off restored last and most collectible year of the second generation Corvette, a 1967 Chevrolet Corvette 427/390HP Big Block Roadster with air conditioning, PS, PB, PW, Dual Side Exhausts, Positract rear end, 4 speed manual transmission, Tint & aluminum bolt on wheels!
This is one highly desirable and collectible unabused example of one of the best styling efforts of the decade, a genuine grand touring car in every sense of the word, this shortest lived Corvette design (1963-67) is probably the most sought after apart from the 1953-1958 models and they are seemingly increasing in value and desirability each year!
