1967 Chevrolet Corvette 427 For sale! Motorcar classics is proud to present this NCRS Top Flight and Duntov Award-Winning 1967 Chevrolet Corvette 427/400 Coupe finished in Sunfire Yellow with White interior and Black vinyl trim. Unlike today, when you purchased an American car during the Sixties and Seventies you could choose from a wide array of options from a huge factory menu. A buyer could configure just about any American car with a completely unique set of specifications and equipment. And in todays market many of these optionchoice, even obscure one, can add great value to a collector car, and in the Corvette world a combination of options can add up to a bump in value that is greater than the sum of the individual options.
The freedom to specify the car to the buyers whims resulted in some very unusual, and sometimes unique, combinations, especially among relatively low production models like Corvette. The 1967 Corvette offered here is a shining example.

It was ordered by Washburn Chevrolet in Santa Barbara, California with the combination of the 427/400hp L68 engine and the unusual choice of the Powerglide automatic transmission. Chevrolet built only 2,324 Corvettes with Powerglide in the entire 1967 model run of 22,940 cars. No one knows how many Big Block Powerglide Corvettes were built, much less with the high performance 400hp L68, but it has to be a number that is almost infinitesimally small. The choice of these options becomes clear from the dealerships copy of the Car Shipper and on the New Vehicle Inspection and Adjustment Schedule. Both documents have handwritten notes saying Mrs. Washburn Demo.

Further to its intended purpose, the cars very comprehensive equipment list includes 4-Season Air Conditioning, transistor ignition, 3.08:1 Positraction axle, AM-FM radio, tinted glass, power windows, power steering, power brakes, air injection smog control, telescopic steering wheel and the speed warning accessory. Upon arriving at the dealership it was further equipped with a set of Michelin tires. Painted Sunfire Yellow (1967s fifth most popular color) with White interior and Black vinyl trim, it is a handsome and highly unusual Corvette, as pleasing to the eye as its lengthy options list is to Corvette collectors.

It was restored in the early 90s and has an impressive concours history, winning its first NCRS Top Flight awards in May and August 1991, then again being judged NCRS Top Flight at the 1999 National Convention and Southern Regional. It completed its Performance Verification at Zion, Utah and put it all together for the Duntov Award at the National Convention that year. The owners at the time, Bob and Nancy Unger, went all the way back through the chain of ownership to locate and get a statement from each of the prior owners. In some cases they even sent along copies of registrations, purchase agreements and other documents they still had in their files.

It has been superbly maintained since and remains in exceptional condition today. It is nearly show ready, demonstrating the quality of its restoration by the way it is holding up. It is thoroughly documented and has an outstanding selection of options including the Big Block L68 V-8, factory air conditioning and high speed 3.08:1 Positraction rear axle ratio for relaxed driving on the highway. The Powerglide automatic is a matter of personal preference, but for any Corvette Collector who finds the heavy clutch of a Big Block four-speed to be a challenge, the Powerglide, AC, and other luxuries are a desirable combination. It also is one of the rarest of all Mid-Year Corvettes, with a combination of options that make it unique.
