Now here is an incredible example of a C2 that we discovered listed on eBay for all of you Corvette purists out there. The Marina Blue 1967 Stingray featured in the auction boasts a paltry 23,754 original miles, and has undergone a year and a half long frame-off, nut-and-bolt restoration to bring it back to showroom quality. The car not only still has its original 435 horsepower 427 big block, original 4-speed transmission, and original rear end, but it also came with several rare options such as the off-road exhaust and power windows. Of course, the car has achieved NCRS Top Flight Status as well.
Anyone who might be interested in a car like this will definitely want to know the Corvette’s full history, and luckily the owner seems to have it fairly well documented. In the auction listing he tells us:
“The History of the car is fairly straight forward. The car was originally sold in Manhattan Beach, CA in 1966 and the original owner was then transferred to Evansville, Indiana. He sold the car to the second owner on 11/1/1969. The car was driven until the third owner purchased it in the spring of 1976. The third owner drove it for a few years and then decided to store it in a Barn in Jefferson City, MO where it sat until just a few years ago. I then purchased it and decided to bring it back to its original glory.”
So just how many green backs would it take to acquire such a fine piece of Corvette history? Well, the auction’s “But-It-Now” price has been set at a cool $177,500 with a “Best Offer” option. As of this morning though there had already been 9 offers submitted, and the auction ends this coming Friday, October 21st.
