Bloomington Gold: 1967 Chevrolet Corvette Sting Ray

This 1967 Corvette Sting Ray Convertible is an original, one-owner survivor. It is also a Bloomington Gold certified car that comes with enough documentation to satisfy the most fastidious of collectors. Located in Macedon, New York, you will find the Corvette listed for sale here on eBay. The BIN on this beauty is $109,995, but the option is available to make an offer.

The Ermine White Corvette is unrestored, and it is remarkably well preserved. Its list of awards that it has received via the NCRS (including Top Flight and Bloomington Gold) is a testament to the car’s originality and condition. The paint has a few very tiny chips, but certainly doesn’t look 52-years-old. The chrome holds a nice shine, while the tinted glass looks close to perfect. The Corvette is fitted with the optional hardtop, but we don’t see the condition of the soft-top. However, given the car’s award status, it would be fair to assume that this must be in pretty decent condition.

Lifting the hood on the Sting Ray reveals the L79 327ci V8, pumping out a healthy 350hp. Backing this is a 4-speed manual transmission, and all of this is numbers-matching. While the owner doesn’t specifically say so, the presentation and award status suggests that the car should be in sound mechanical health. There are plenty of enthusiasts who believe that this was the era when the Corvette was at its performance zenith, with a vehicle like this capable of a 0-60 time of 5.8 seconds and a ¼ mile ET of 14.2 seconds. The Corvette’s weight still remained comparatively low, and the 327 allowed it to be a far more nimble package than those produced with a big-block under the hood.

The interior of the Corvette presents beautifully for a car of this age, with no real issues or problems to report. The black vinyl upholstery appears to be free of any rips or tears, with only some slight stretching of the seat upholstery and fading of the carpet there to provide any real evidence of the car’s age. The dash looks superb, while the gauges show no clouding of the lenses, or corrosion on the plated components. The Corvette also comes with a pretty substantial collection of documentation. This includes bank loan documentation, a complete service history, and every registration dating back to “day 1.” The original tank sticker even remains attached to the tank.

This Corvette Sting Ray is a remarkable survivor, and its condition would seem to be good enough to satisfy even the most fastidious of enthusiasts. These have always been a fairly rock-solid financial investment over the years, so if I had a choice between a shares portfolio and this car, I know which way I would be leaning. It might not provide quite the potential return of the shares, but it would be a whole lot more fun.

    The dealer with this car will not take a penny less than the BIN and will sit on this for years until they get their price. They are one of the Top Ten Corvette dealers in the United States which I guess also makes them one of the Top Ten in the world.

    One owner, wow. Price seems more like big block territory, but I guess someone would be willing to pay for the pedigree.

    The dealer will be sitting on it for a long time then, it is a lovely Corvette though. As we all know, in terms of potential buyers, when you get over $100k, the air gets really thin, really fast. May be worth the money to the buyer that’s gotta have it, but that buyer will understand that they will not be able to sell this Corvette in the future for today’s values. The collectors that relish these 60’s cars are simply in “sunset mode” to use the politically correct term, i.e. they are getting older and older. It is not just this particular Corvette, it is most all cars from the 60’s, the sunset mode is here.

    Hope the new buyer will drive it a little bit and get some enjoyment!

      For a reference point, the dealer has been sitting on a 1988 Coupe, automatic with optional suspension and 84,000 miles. The car has been priced at $8995 for over a year. It is sitting in the corner of their warehouse/showroom. The price has recently been lowered by $1000. These folks have nothing but time and money and will wait. They have also been selling Corvettes for over 40 years. They know more than we do. I would not buy an oil filter from them, but plenty of folks buy Corvettes from them.

    All I can say is its my idea of the perfect Vette. I wish I was in a position to make it mine.

    It’s a beautiful car and the 327 was a very good engine! I really like driving new Corvettes but one like would certainly be a blast on short trips and car shows! I probably have things backwards, I should stop buying New Vettes and be investing in old ones!

      Agreed

    With the Boomers unloading their cars these prices will be unsustainable.

    We must see 8 a week.

    Mind you not as nice as this, but eventually it will sell for less

    My high school friend had a car identical to this one, he had 70 1/2 Z28 wheels on it with F60’s, surprisingly they did not rub. It ran consistent 13.60’s all day long. It was a nice car, and so is this one, I love it when someone cherishes their car.
