  1967 CORVETTE STING RAY COUPE 

OUR CAR IS FINISHED IN MARINA BLUE WITH BLACK STANDARD INTERIOR. IT HAS BASIC EQUIPMENT INCLUDING SOFT RAY TINTED GLASS, AM/FM RADIO, FOUR-SPEED TRANSMISSION, POSITRACTION, POWER DISC BRAKES, N32 ('66) TEAKWOOD STEERING WHEEL, AND WHITEWALL RADIAL TIRES. THIS IS A MATCHING NUMBER CAR.  RECENTLY RE-RESTORED PAINT AND SUSPENSION. THE ENGINE STILL RETAINS THE ORIG. STICKERS AND MARKINGS. THIS CAR, IN THIS CONFIGURATION, MAKES A PERFECT DRIVER AND THE ULTIMATELY BALANCED "PERFORMANCE CAR"- THAT YOU CAN STILL DRIVE ON STANDARD PUMP GASOLINE. ANOTHER SALES POINT IS THAT SOME EVEN SAY THE FASTBACK COUPE IS BETTER LOOKING THAN THE CONVERTIBLE.

"AMERICA'S FAVORITE SPORTSCAR" IN A STUNNING VERSION OF THE FASTBACK COUPE.'
THERE ARE THOSE THAT ARGUE THAT THE 1967 IS
THE BEST OF THE LAST BECAUSE IT WAS THE LAST OF THE "MID-YEAR VETTES" AND THE STYLING WAS 'CLEANED UP BY ADDING FIVE FUNCTIONAL FENDER LOUVERS TO THE LOWER FENDERS. THOUGH STANDARD EQUIPMENT INCLUDED RALLY WHEELS, ODOMETER, CLOCK, FULL CARPETING, WHEEL TRIM RINGS, TACH, FULL VINYL INTERIOR AND BUCKET SEATS IT WAS THE SMALL CHANGES THAT GOT ALL THE ATTENTION. THE PARKING BRAKE HANDLE WAS MOVED IN-BETWEEN THE SEATS, A BACK-UP LIGHT WAS ADDED OVER THE LICENSE PLATE, DESIGNERS REMOVED ALMOST ALL THE BADGES, IT GOT A DIFFERENT UPHOLSTERY PATTERN, NEW INTERIOR KNOBS, AND THE BASE ENGINE WAS NOW BOOSTED TO 300 H.P. (10:05:01 COMPRESSION). IT IS ALSO A LITTLE KNOWN FACT THAT BASE MODELS CARRIED A THREE-SPEED TRANSMISSION (THOUGH CONSIDERED RARE -ONLY 424 CARS BUILT THAT WAY- THIS IS ONE OF THE FEW TIMES WHERE RARITY DOES NOT EQUATE TO DESIRABILITY IN ANYONE'S BOOK.)
THE 1967 CORVETTE IS KNOWN TO BE ONE OF THE GREAT IRONIES OF CHEVROLET HISTORY....
IT WAS NOT EVEN SUPPOSED TO EXIST AS IT WAS SET TO DEBUT AS A WHOLE NEW MODEL BUT, AFTER A HOST OF PRODUCTION PROBLEMS (THAT FOLLOWED THE 1968 INTO EXISTENCE)- THE 1967 WAS NOTHING MORE THAN A CLEANED UP '66 MODEL.... MASSAGED, PERFECTED AND RE-INTRODUCED FOR THE 1967 MODEL YEAR. FOR THAT REASON IS CONSIDERED BY MANY TO BE THE SINGLE MOST COLLECTIBLE OF ALL THE MODELS. THIS CAR IS A GREAT CAR ~ REDUCED.... SOLD

  THE STORY: 

By 1967 Anti-Establishment feelings were beginning to build all across America....even at the Movies. Big Budget Hollywood Productions like "The Dirty Dozen", and "Bonnie and Clyde" packed the Movie Houses. Lee Marvin led a blood thirsty group of murderers, rapists and anti-social psychopaths in an alleged true story about covert action against the Nazi's in "The Dirty Dozen" while a pair of murdering 1930 Bank Robbers were made into cinematic Super Heroes in "Bonnie and Clyde". Who could forget chain-gang prisoner Paul Newman in "Cool Hand Luke"?? (....."What we have here is a failure to communicate"). Or, Sidney Portier in "Guess Who's Coming To Dinner"?. ..Exploiting the controversy around mixed marriages. For me though.... who could ever forget gorgeous Catherine Ross, comely Anne Bancroft and super nerd-like Dustin Hoffman in "The Graduate" bedding the world's first MILF "hot mom". Muhammad Ali isn't able to say much today but, in 1967 he was spouting out poems at every interview. He was one of the First Personalities to refuse to comply to the U.S. Draft saying, "No Viet Cong ever called me a Nigger". The World Boxing Association subsequently stripped him of his title, fined him $10,000 and then the Fed's sentenced him to 5 years in prison. The U.S. Supreme Court later overturned the conviction but Ali's ball-like fame has lived on in infamy. Top albums would be " Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" (Beatles), " Greatest Hits" by Diana Ross & the Supremes,  and "Ode to Billie Joe" with Bobbie Gentry. TV closed a conservative broadcast year with Top Shows being "The Lucy Show" (Lucille Ball), "Bonanza" (Michael Landon), The Red Skeleton Hour" and "The Andy Griffith Show". The Brothers Smother got in trouble for openly criticizing the Vietnam War on the "Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour" resulting in guest; Pete Seger being bumped from the show by CBS for singing "Waist Deep In The Big Muddy" (a hardcore Anti-War song). However, you're more likely to remember Sally Field as "The Flying Nun" or "Gentle Ben" (Clint Howard) and his pet bear. But, the year would end on a sad note as we would tally over 17,000 soldiers losing their lives in Vietnam, since 1961, by the close of 1967. The Vietnam War would take its toll, ultimately erasing over 67,000 American lives. The bright spot in 1967 history was, indeed, the 1967 Corvette Sting Ray.
