For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/q7jq524 Pairing a professional restoration and numbers-matching, big block drivetrain with top honors from Bloomington, NCRS and Chevy/Vettefest, this Triple Crown Corvette is a correct, blue chip showstopper that'll hold its own next to the finest metal on the planet! BODYWORK/TRIM Unlike other sports cars, which shall remain nameless, all Corvettes are NOT red. And that's a very good thing because if they were, we'd be missing out on sublime colors like this slick Sting Ray's correct Lynndale Blue 2-stage. That glossy hue is especially smooth thanks to a first-rate restoration, which teased the car's appearance to something very close to what it originally presented at Syracuse, New York's Salina Motors. Naturally, there's a full round of factory bolt-ons, like Soft Ray glass and a requisite Stinger Hood, which have been either fully restored or accurately reproduced. And today, this coupe rolls as one top-notch C2 that's perfectly worthy of exceptional design, world beating performance and a distinguished spot in the coveted Triple Crown Registry. ENGINE What's better than a correctly restored Corvette that's won multiple national awards? A correctly restored, numbers-matching Corvette that's won multiple national awards! Tilt the car's hood and you'll find an original L36 big block that frames a correct PҦILPҦ suffix stamp and matching partial VIN in a '67-exclusive 3904351 casting number and January (A) 23rd (23), 1967 (7) casting date. At the top of the Chevy Orange 427, a familiar Holley carburetor rides between a chrome, correctly decaled air cleaner and bright stainless fluid lines. Below that carburetor, a stock Chevrolet intake funnels a perfect air/fuel mixture in to tough, cast iron heads, which wear traditional steel valve covers. When the juice hits the cylinders, reliable, chrome-capped ignition sparks fresh, stainless-sleeved wires while a stock cam and rotating assembly push spent gases through factory Exhaust manifolds. Cooling for that fire is provided by a beefy radiator, which hangs in front of pliable GM hoses and reproduction tower clamps. And, aesthetically, this Chevy's tidy engine compartment is exceptionally well done, framing a correct alternator, rebuilt master cylinder and reproduction Delco battery in bright decals, bright inspection marks and clean, Satin Black fenders. DRIVETRAIN/SUSPENSION Behind that awesome big block, a familiar Muncie 4-speed sports a correct 3885010 casting number, a Muncie (P) assembled on February (B) 28th (28), 1967 (7) build stamp and a matching partial VIN. That tough transmission twists a stout, posi-traction rear end that's fitted with highway-friendly gears. Turns come courtesy of an old school manual steering rack. Four disc brakes provide solid, confident stops. Factory replacement Exhaust funnels spent gases through baritone turbo mufflers. And all that reliable hardware rolls on conservative Rally Wheels that spin 7.75-15 Firestone Deluxe Champion redlines around stainless trim rings and polished center caps. INTERIOR Crack this C2's cockpit and you'll find a correct Dark Blue interior that appears to have been completely replaced during the car's extensive rebirth. Seating comes courtesy of correct leather thrones, which are anchored between fresh seatbelts, bright stainless trim and a small console that's centered on a fully functional shifter. From the driver's perch, a traditional clock and Delco AM/FM radio ride between rebuilt gauges and an aluminum-trimmed glove box. And in front of the driver, a satin-spoke steering wheel laps a brilliant cross-flag emblem. When you show up at an event with a Triple Crown Vette, you are well and truly the man. And when the time comes to make a little profit, there will always be more buyers than sellers. Looking for a storied classic that you can show with pride or keep for a while and make a nice return on?
