BaT Auction: 1967 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible 427/390 4-Speed

This post was originally published on this site

This 1967 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible is finished in Malboro Maroon with a black soft top and was built in March 1967. The car reportedly underwent a body-off restoration from 2002-2005 by it previous owner of 30 years that included new paint, a rebuild of its numbers-matching 427ci V8, fresh interior pieces, and more. The current owner acquired the car for his collection in 2017, and has driven it roughly 200 miles over the course of his ownership. Recent maintenance includes a rebuild of the Holley carburetor in May of this year. This C2 is offered on consignment in Neptune, New Jersey with a removable hardtop, the original order sheet, and a clean New Jersey title in the current owner’s name.

The fiberglass body was removed from the frame and repainted in its proper Malboro Maroon (988) color. Per the original order sheet, the car was optioned with the N11 offroad exhaust, incorporating less-restrictive mufflers than the standard units.
