For 1965, the big news was the arrival of standard disc brakes and optional big block engine (initially 396 cubic inches with 400hp), which grew to two 427cid options for 1966 (390hp and 425hp), each of which gained an additional 10hp for the definitive 1967 model year. Thus, the 1967 427cid/435hp L-71 motor was the ultimate development of one of the most iconic American cars ever made. Ticking the L-71 option box gave a reported 435 hp triple carbureted engine with wild cam, high compression, and performance. Automotive press raved about the power and usability of the Corvette, particularly in the roadster configuration, which made top-down driving exhilarating especially when ordered with the 4-speed manual transmission and 4.11:1 axle ratio. Legendary torque and acceleration captured under a race-bred body made the last of these iconic Corvettes among the most sought after by collectors and performance enthusiasts.

According to the build sheet accompanying this Corvette, #118089 was equipped from the factory with an L-71 427/435 Turbojet, 4 speed close ratio transmission, and a Positraction 4.11:1 axle. Other features included an optional hardtop, white soft top, AM/FM Radio, and transistor ignition. The car was finished in Goodwood Green metallic (coded 02983AA) with black interior. The authentic body/trim tag indicates May 8, 1967 for assembly and May 9, 1967 for completion. The engine currently in the car is a correct 427/435 with casting numbers that are within two months of the build. The deck surface contains the stamped number 7118089, which corresponds to the original engine designated for the car however, the stamping has not been verified as original. All three carburetors are correct type “service replacements” of later vintage.

The earliest known record of mileage and service accompanying the car is a 1992 receipt containing the correct VIN and recorded mileage of 51,097. This receipt describes a “Complete engine rebuild on original 427 ci”. In 1995 a newly issued Virginia title indicating 54,032 miles was recorded, with subsequent transfer of sale mileage of 54,200 recorded in August 2002. Further mileage recorded in November 2002 shows 54,270, also on a service invoice. In 2011, the car was professionally restored including a high quality two-stage repaint in the original Goodwood Green. The car currently wears Western Wheel “Bolt On” reproduction wheels, and a pair of owner-added side pipes. The restoration work was performed with attention to detail in all areas including a new replacement wire harness, original type steering wheel, factory correctly presented radiator, and other miscellaneous high-quality reproduction components. Restoration receipts accompanying the car show careful detail with body and paint preparation including correct epoxy sealing, high quality plating for all chrome, and other detailed items. A 2015 receipt showing 56,508 miles on the car (57,255 miles currently showing) outlines a professional compression test performed with the following numbers recorded: 185, 185, 194, 185, 190, 185, 185, 185psi. our compression numbers showed

Today, this 427/435 Corvette Roadster presents beautifully with a strong presence, great stance, and striking colors. The two-stage paint has been expertly applied with proper factory metal flake, with excellent coverage and preparation resulting in a high gloss finish, especially against the contrasting white stinger hood stripe. The body displays great fit and finish with nice gapping at the doors and hood line. The retractable headlight doors are smooth and fit well, opening and closing per factory specifications. The chrome plated bumpers are correctly fitted and aligned to the front and rear body contours, while the finish is in excellent condition. The chrome trim, badges, and various exterior elements are well kept with proper fit to the body. The optional hardtop is finished in matching Goodwood Green metallic with excellent fit and tight latching at the header. The wheels are reported to be reproductions by the highly regarded company Western Wheels, and in excellent condition. Period correct white line tires and side pipes complement. The glass, lights, and lenses are in excellent condition with alphanumeric codes.

Inside, the Corvette continues to deliver with a faithfully restored interior using quality materials matching closely to the original specifications. The seats and door panels are correctly finished as is the twin binnacle dashboard, pebbled black accents, and brushed aluminum features. The instruments are colorful and detailed, as are the switches, bezels, and radio. The carpeting, various trim, rear interior pieces, pedals, and shifter boot are nice. The white convertible top is easily raised and lowered, and taut when latched in place, particularly given that the impressed NCRS experts who recently inspected the car believe this is the factory original top based on the markings on the rear window and various other details which are rarely replicated in restorations. The minor yellowing in the bead edging and in a few other areas of the white material are all indicative of original tops of this vintage. There are no tears or major flaws of significance in the soft top and the headliner is also in good condition.

Under the hood, the engine and engine compartment has been properly finished to near original standards. While some of the components and hardware have seasoned since the restoration, this does not detract from an otherwise nice presentation. The dominant chrome Turbo-Jet 3-2 air cleaner announces the power lurking beneath. A recent inspection by NCRS Corvette experts confirm that this car is equipped with 1967 42 amp (heavy duty) alternator. Underneath the car, the suspension, driveline components, performance equipment, and factory brakes all appear correctly restored, displaying moderately used finishes but still very tidy overall. A copy of the Corvette Order Copy, assorted restoration receipts, and previous invoices dating back to the early 1990s accompany.

As a 1967 427/435 Convertible, this Corvette is among the most desirable Sting Ray configurations. Beautifully restored and ready for driving enjoyment, local shows, or Corvette gatherings - it captures the zenith of the American high-horsepower high-displacement era like few cars can. Now available for worldwide purchase and delivery from our Houston, Texas showroom.
