Driver Survivor! 1967 Corvette Convertible 4-Speed

Sporty and muscular, the C2 Corvette bristles with power while exuding a gentlemanly air. This 1967 Chevrolet Corvette in Virginia Beach, Virginia boasts shiny and mostly-original paint, original interior, and many original parts under the hood, most importantly the factory-born 327 cid (5.4L) V8 engine. Years ago the Buy It Now price of $48,000, here on eBay, for a never-restored vehicle, would have seemed highly optimistic if not irrational. Today these survivors can bring nearly as much or even more than their immaculately restored counterparts. Best of all, the buyer can twist the key and drive this drop-top ‘Vette today! Thanks to reader Patrick S. for spotting this special Sting Ray.

Wade through the punishing ALL CAPS stream-of-consciousness description and you’ll learn that the seller knows far more about Corvettes than about how to sell them on eBay, and that’s far better than the opposite. Original items include the alternator, fan, exhaust manifolds, and valve covers.

Largely intact and functional, the original interior works as-is, but the seller graciously confesses the seats are starting to split and their padding is deteriorated. Much will be forgiven when you row through the gears of this iconic sports car on day one.

Sporting “90%” of its original paint, this Corvette is described as a fifteen footer that never lost years in a field, wasting away due to never-completed repairs, or awaiting that magical “someday” when its owner would hit the lottery and restore it. Instead this classic racked up 132,000 miles on the clock and shows the honest wear that comes from years of drive time. It would probably be worth just as much with 332,000 miles. How would you enjoy it?

    With the possible exception of cherrying out the interior I would drive this as is untill it needed new tires, buy a new set and drive it some more. My first new Corvette was a Lyndale Blue 1967 Coupe 327/300 4 speed that the bank and my 20 year old butt owned , I loved it, owned it untill the insurance company cancelled my insurance after an idiot in a 1967 Mustang ran a stop sign on his way to work and took out the lower passenger side front fender, and 6″ of the right door.

    god, i’d love to own this thing & drive it in the manner intended.
    appears to be an honest used car that just happens to be a ’67 Vette ragtop.
    the lack of excess corrosion shown in photos is enticing for a coastal car.

    Enjoy the heck out of it just the way it is, everyday, until snow comes around.

    Lot of potential there. I agree on fixing the mechanicals and interior and just drive it. Assume the seller knows something, since there’s a C3 and a trio of C4’s in the background plus one on the end I can’t figure out with everything missing from the firewall forward.
    IIRC that one was the high compression engine (meaning requires hi octane gas) plus I don’t remember if it had hardened valve seats or not.
    Whether it’s worth the asking price, only a buyer can determine that.

    if I had the cash laying around I’d hit the buy it now button!!! Really nice car I bet it’s a blast to drive!!!

    At first blush I say buy it! It is more of a survivor than I have seen lately.
    The only thing missing is the hardtop. C’mon, it had one. You better not be selling it on another site.

    I’m a sucker for an original non restored cars. I would drive this and enjoy it. I would pay the $48k if everything checks out as the seller states. C2’s have soften a little in price. But if someone buys it to enjoy and preserve it’s originality, IMO they will get their money back out of it in years to come.

    This car can be the C2 representative in my Corvettes of all Generations Dream Car Collection. I would be tempted to recover the seats and paint it eventually, but it demands to be driven.

    Nice find.

    Color should be Goodwood Green. Looks a bit dark but I know photos can be funny. I owned a 67 ragtop myself and I’d love this one. but for paint and upholstery issues, I’m thinking mid-$30s.
