1967 Chevrolet Corvette Sting Ray L71 427/435 HP

1967 Chevrolet Corvette 427/435 HP Roadster – sold for $83,600 This Corvette is believed to benefit from the ownership of only three custodians prior to being acquired by Steve and Patricia Mance in 1986. During their 20 years of excellent care, they drove the car sparingly and conducted some very limited restorative work, mainly refurbishing the interior with new upholstery and carpets. The current owner purchased this scintillating Stingray in 2006 and the following year retained David Cron, the manager of a large private collection, to conduct some freshening of mechanical and cosmetic features as needed. In late 2008, the car was inspected and assessed in a formal report by Everett Brewster, a Corvette expert and owner of Corvettes Unlimited of America in Ozark, Missouri. Mr. Brewster’s report judges that approximately 75% of the car’s Marina Blue paint is original and that it is a well-optioned example offering comprehensive authenticity, save for its correct period replacement motor. Auction Source: 2011 Scottsdale Auction by Gooding & Company
