Chevrolet’s Corvette can be considered one of the cornerstones of American automobilia. Introduced in 1953, it’s seen over sixty years of production, eight generations and is widely considered as Chevrolet’s halo car. The Corvette is named after a class of warship that is small and highly maneuverable. The first seven generations followed the front-engined formula, whilst the current eighth generation shook things up with a mid-engined configuration and catapulted the Corvette into the next level of performance and handling. This is a second-generation (C2) 1967 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe from Pennsylvania that underwent a complete restoration seven years ago. It’s got only 700 miles since then and is reported to have a numbers-matching motor and transmission. The seller says, “It’s a dream car to drive, it’s fast, really fast”, so if you want a Corvette that has history, heritage and the go-factor rolled into one package, this one is worth considering.
The second-generation Corvette was designed by Larry Shinoda and brought several design changes over the first, including hidden pop-up quad headlamps, the fastback body style, the iconic split screen rear window, and a more aerodynamic shape that was tuned through wind tunnel testing. This 1967 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe has all those features, except the split-screen rear window which was dropped in 1964. It proudly sports a Marlboro Maroon paint job and rolls on alloy wheels with radial tires. The iconic side exhausts of this generation are present and correct, with their factory covers. The black interior saw a refresh during the restoration and seats two, who face a twin-cowled dash. The driver is presented with a set of black with white lettering gauges communicating all important info such as speed, revs, fuel, and temperature, and faces a three-spoke steering wheel with the Chevrolet flags in the center. An analog clock is present on the center console, along with an in-dash AM/FM radio.
The C2 Corvette was offered with a variety of small block and big block V8 engines, and this 1967 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe has its original 327ci (5.4L) small block V8 that sends 350hp to the rear wheels via a Powerglide two-speed automatic transmission. A 20-gallon fuel tanks ensures ample range for road trips. The seller reports that the engine and transmission were rebuilt during the restoration. Drum brakes constitute the stopping power on offer.
