To Be OFFERED AT AUCTION WITHOUT RESERVE at RM Sothebys' Amelia Island event, 22 May 2021. Estimate:$130,000 - $170,000 USD Beautiful factory-correct restoration; NCRS Top Flight award-winnerMatching-numbers 435 hp, 427 cu. in. V-8; four-speed close-ratio manual transmissionGoodwood Green over a Black interiorDesirable options include off-road exhaust, Positraction 4.11 rear end, transistor ignition, and starburst bolt-on alloy wheels 1967 marked the last year for the iconic second-generation Chevrolet Corvette, and this 427/435 Coupe, finished in factory-correct Goodwood Green over Black, demonstrates why these final-year cars are among the most refined and desirable of all C2 Sting Rays. Powered by the L71 engine package, the numbers-matching, 427-cubic-inch Tri-Power V-8 found here produced a conservatively rated 435 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque. The most desirable street engine, its output was surpassed only by the competition-oriented L88. It is mated to an M21 close-ratio four-speed manual transmission backed by a G81 Positraction 4.11 rear end. Further options include the U69 AM/FM radio, K66 transistorized ignition, A02 tinted windshield, and, notably, what appears to be a factory-original N11 off-road exhaust system, complete with correct GM-embossed mufflers. The car currently rides on reproduction N89 wheels with striking starburst caps. With an official production date of 17 January 1967, this Sting Rays earliest history remains unknown despite GM records and research conducted by the National Corvette Restorers Society. In 1990, upon completion of its total restoration and under the ownership of Francis Flynn of Pennsylvania, the car earned an NCRS Top Flight Award by achieving an impressive judged score of 98.6. By 1994 it had joined another well-known Pennsylvania collection.The Corvette was acquired circa 2010 by the consignor, also of the Keystone State, who has maintained the car since 1994. Well acquainted with its quality restoration, he proceeded to correct minor details, along with having brake calipers and master cylinder restored by Lonestar Caliper Co. Approximately four years ago, he prepared it for road use, which involved a full chassis service and carburetor restorations by Holley. It has subsequently seen only limited, careful use. Accompanied by its Top Flight certificate, judging documentation, and research, and equipped with desirable features, this beautifully restored, factory-correct, NCRS Top Flight-awarded 1967 Corvette 427/435 represents the Sting Ray at its very best.To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/am21.
