Corvettes are among the most well-documented collector cars on the planet, so there’s no excuse for not knowing exactly what you’re buying
Long considered a modern classic, the Sting Ray’s aggressive lines and sleek profile were perfectly suited to its role as GM’s image leader. In the late 1960s, the big block Corvette was the king of the road. Although expensive, with a sticker price of over $5,000 as equipped here, the Corvette was still the car one purchased to go fast, especially when optioned with one of the thundering 427-cid engines.
This particular L71 Car has benefited from a full, professional restoration by Carosserie Lecoq in Paris, France. The seller reports that this Corvette was restored to its correct 427 specifications, and includes a four-speed manual transmission, wood steering wheel, tinted glass, aluminum wheels, AM/FM radio and side-mounted exhaust.
It has been reported that a replacement block was used during the restoration. The paintwork is the correct and original Corvette color of Goodwood Green, and is highlighted with a black stinger and interior.
The 1967 model remains as perhaps the most collectible Corvette of its period. Their performance was unmatched, especially when coupled with the 435-hp option featured here.
