1967 Chevrolet Corvette Sting Ray Roadster 427 - Classic Car For Sale (Click Here)


Few cars are as iconic as a ’67 Sting Ray. Fluid lines, power and prestige have followed the cars from the time they were built, and there will be no slowing their rise in value and popularity. We have the one to buy, enjoy and keep right here: A true, numbers matching 427 convertible with a four speed and side exhaust all documented by its ORIGINAL tank sticker and Protect-O-Plate!

Simply having a tank sticker is a good sign—crusty cars are always missing theirs so you know this one was clean right from the start. The option list isn’t a mile long, but all of the right boxes were checked off:

19467 Corvette convertible
983 Goodwood Green
430 Green vinyl interior
L36 427/390HP Turbo-Jet engine
M21 Close ratio four speed transmission
K66 Transistorized ignition
G81 Positraction axle, 3.70 ratio
A01 Soft-Ray tinted glass, all windows
N14 Side mount exhaust system
N40 Power steering
C05 Convertible top, white
C07 Auxiliary hardtop
P92 7.75x15 White sidewall tires

That’s right—this is a true big block, four speed, Positraction convertible with side exhaust! Not many Corvettes can beat that combination from a rarity or a desirability standpoint.

According to the ORIGINAL warranty booklet the car was sold new at Prout Chevrolet in
Elyria, OH. The ORIGINAL Protect-O-Plate shows the owner to be local man Dennis Mileti who picked his car up on March 16. The numbers match the body, the LH code 427/390 and the M21 underneath. We also have the original owner’s manual. This paperwork is nearly important as the car itself—don’t buy a high dollar Corvette without it!

Options and paperwork are important, but so is the driving experience, and this Corvette excels at it. No odd noises come from the driveline or chassis, the steering, brakes and clutch are perfect, the seats are comfortable and the motor makes PLENTY of power. Don’t let anyone tell you the L36 is a “weak” engine! The sidepipes herald the car’s arrival with style and a very authoritative tone. The car holds the road well considering its bias ply tires and stiff suspension. Fewer than 100 miles have rolled onto the odometer since restoration, which is a shame with how well sorted this car is!

Sighting down the mint original body you’ll see the 34,200 miles on the odometer is correct—there are simply no flaws that a ton of driving can’t hide. The paint is as close to flawless as it gets on a Corvette, with excellent prep work below. Gaps and panel fits far exceed new and the white stinger stripe on the hood matches the top and the white lines on the new reproduction tires for a unified look.

Moving on to the mint interior, all you can do is gasp when you take it in—newly recovered seats and seat foams, new carpeting, new door panels, a restored dash pad, restored seat belts and a restored instrument cluster greet your eyes. Everywhere you look, you see perfect original or restored pieces. Notice the steering wheel. All instrumentation operates properly. Every piece of chrome and stainless in the interior of this Corvette like new.

On a lift you’ll see the fruits of the frame off restoration’s labors. Suspensions front and rear are refurbished and are like new in operation and appearance. The side exhaust is new, as is the fuel system. The frame and floorpans are both as clean as new. The original transmission and FA-code rear end have been gone through, and neither issues any noises nor complaints when called upon.

Open the hood to find details large and small. The largest would be the numbers matching IL-code 427 mill, rebuilt and dressed in fresh Chevrolet Orange paint. From the chrome air cleaner to the spring clamps on the reproduction battery this is a highly detailed, highly correct mill. The Holley list 3811 carb sits atop the original 3888948 intake; new reproduction radiator and heater hoses connect to the recored radiator. This 427 looks better than new, and it drives better than it looks.

Numbers matching big block C2 Corvettes were blue chip collectables twenty years ago, and they’re simply not getting any more affordable. With its ironclad paperwork, fantastic detailing and dynamite driving characteristics this ’67 is better than any bank account, hedge fund or bond you can buy.
