The second generation of Chevrolet’s Corvette sports car, the iconic C2 was the first to bear the Stingray namesake and debuted a new chassis with improved steering, brakes, and suspension. This 1967 Convertible was ordered in Rally Red over black upholstery and features a highly desirable L71 427/435 HP V8 engine paired with a Muncie M-21 4-speed manual transmission. Having completed a full frame-off restoration that meticulously addressed every nut and bolt in 2006, this example received an NCRS Top-Flight Blue Ribbon award in April of that year. Most recently owned by an avid enthusiast, this highly collectible Corvette is now being offered for auction by its seller out of North Carolina.
This Stingray comes finished in a striking shade of Rally Red with a black painted hood stripe, a matching removable soft top, split chrome front & rear bumpers, smooth chrome-trimmed rocker panels, and a single reverse light over the rear license plate. Its distinctive design is further characterized by pop-up headlights, a hood scoop, a single chrome driver’s side mirror, a power antenna, optional dual side-exit exhaust outlets, and 15” Rally wheels which come mounted with Auburn Radial Redline reproduction tires from 2022. The seller notes one minor paint imperfection of the passenger-side fender which has been professionally repaired as well as a hardly noticeable stress fracture on the driver’s side of the hood. Additional images are provided in the gallery.
The cabin presents black vinyl upholstery including bucket seats with headrests and a matching dashboard, door panels, and carpeting, contrasted with stainless steel accents. Amenities include a polished ball shifter, power windows, a locking glovebox, and an analog clock. The seller adds that a mid-year Corvette vintage air conditioning system has been professionally installed. Minor creasing is noted on the driver’s seat and all gauges, electronics, and accessories are reported to be working properly.
Beneath the hood lies a coveted “Tri-Power” triple two-barrel carbureted L71 427ci V8 engine rated at 435 HP. The rear wheels are driven through a Muncie M-21 4-speed manual close-ratio transmission and GM Posi-traction limited-slip differential. A GM power steering pump was installed under prior ownership and a factory side-mounted exhaust system was recently installed as well. The seller states that a complete frame-off and nut-&-bolt restoration was completed in 2006 and documents showing matching engine and transmission numbers will accompany the sale. Noteworthy service items are said to include a complete carburetor rebuild along with the installation of a factory-correct rebuilt starter, a rebuilt clock, and a four-row aluminum radiator tune-up within the last 18 months by the specialists at Jamison Corvette in North Charleston, South Carolina. The seller notes a minor drivetrain oil leak and original parts that were removed are also said to be included in the sale.
This sale will include a clean title and a host of documentation.
