1967 Chevrolet Corvette 427 C2
Original matching numbers 427/390 HP big-block V-8 engine
3-Speed Manual Transmission
1963 was a watershed year for the Corvette. Production hit 21,513 – split quite evenly between the new “roadster” and stunning coupe design from Larry Shinoda under the direction of Bill Mitchell, with the now infamous (and valuable) split rear window design. Subsequent model year Vettes added the new knock off wheels (1964), the 396 “big block” V8 (1965), and then in 1966, the 427, 430 HP L-88 model, ultimately one of the most collectible Corvettes ever. The C2 series ended in 1967 with the addition of five-slot fender vents and the famous ’67-only hood scoop and contrasting color “stinger” stripe on the big block cars. In all, the cleaned up ’67 model was a fitting end to the C2 series which can lay claim to being the most loved Corvettes of all.
Brief information about this car:
Until 1983, it was owned by one owner, who was a member of the Royal Club and participated in races in Michigan. His last name was Jacobs, if not mistaken. She was brought to Finland in 1983 and from that moment on she actually had only 2 owners. Interholding Company and the family of the current owner. Although the documents are more, as it is sometimes re-registered to the companies owned by the family for tax reasons only. In 1995/1996, she was professionally (Corvette specialist) completely restored to originality and passed a test to be registered as a historical in Finland. In addition to the typical C2 Corvettes 1967, the 427 / 6.9 L V8 engine, she has the Rochester 3X2-barrel carburettors, which the factory called Tri-Power. Colour Marlboro Maroon.
