1967 was the year that was not meant to be, at least not for the Sting Ray as we know it. Chevrolet had hoped to launch a brand new body style for this model year but concern about the aerodynamic efficiency of the new design caused its postponement. As is so often the case, this production glitch enabled the Sting Ray to evolve and, in the process, offer one of the most awesome cars to hit the road. Some would argue it was the best Corvette ever. The bodywork was given only a few cosmetic changes since it was not expected to remain in production, but major developments took place beneath the hood. Although the two small-block engines remained, still rated at 300 and 350 horsepower, big-block 427 cubic inch engines were rated as high as 435 horsepower as seen here. Showing just 5,900 original miles from new, this 100-percent original and non-restored time capsule is among the lowest mileage examples of the 427/435 Sting Rays in existence. Purchased new by a GM engineer, it was stored in a climate controlled environment for 40 years. This exceptionally original survivor wears the original and desirable Marlboro Maroon paint, original black interior, original drivetrain and engine compartment, chrome and stainless. Also included is the original tank sticker, Protect-O-Plate and a well-documented ownership history. A true benchmark automobile, it's impossible to duplicate options include L71 427-cid, 435-hp tri-power V-8, M21 close ratio four-speed transmission, Posi-traction axle, F41 special suspension, N11 off-road exhaust system, shoulder harness, transistor ignition, AM/FM radio and 775 x 15 redline tires. Having received multiple NCRS awards and Top Flight Status, this is an ultimate Blue-Chip Corvette that is worthy of the finest collection.
