1967 Chevrolet Corvette

1967 Chevrolet Corvette in Calabasas California

 Vehicle Description
Car was built April 14 1967 and delivered to Harry Mann Chevrolet in Los Angeles per the NCRS shipping report. It is a no hit body on the original pristine California frame no rust or damage ever. It has spent its entire life in California Texas Louisiana and now in Kentucky since 2006.The car was originally equipped with L-79 engine 4 speed close ratio transmission 3.70 posi trac rear fully tinted glass AM-FM radio power windows power steering power brakes.The car received a A?a??A"frame onA?a??i?1/2 restoration in 2003 and the color was changed from the original Marlboro Maroon to Tuxedo black. I purchased the car in July 2006 and drove it for a couple of years with the original drivetrain (327-350 hp engine and Muncie close ratio trans). In 2008 I decided to convert it to an L-88 replica. I had been collecting real L-88 parts for 10 years prior to buying the car with plans to build such a car when A?a??A"the right carA?a??i?1/2 came along.Starting at the front I bought a reproduction L-88 radiator support and a new DeWitts reproduction L-88 radiator. When it came time for the engine my original plans were to build and iron block 427 L-88 with aluminum heads just like the originals. However I found an NEW 427 aluminum ZL-1 block in the crate and a NEW set of aluminum heads still in the GM boxes so my plans changed. I purchased EVERY piece in the engine as a NEW GM part; 6323 forged steel crankshaft 8922 dimple rods with 7/16 bolts 10:1 compression pistons GM oval port intake etc. The only parts on the engine that are not new are the front timing cover and the carburetor. I wanted to drive the car and it be dependable so I had Straub Technologies custom grind a hydraulic roller cam for low end torque and power. The engine has approximately 500 miles since I completed the car in 2009.The hood is a fully functional correct L-88 hood with the correct cold air plenum and the correct cutouts at the back. The L-88 road draft tube is an original GM part not a reproduction. Headers are an exact reproduction of the ones that GM commissioned Bill Thomas to make for the 1966 competition Corvettes and the handful of 1967 L-88 Corvettes. The only difference is in the material is these are 304 stainless steel and the Bill Thomas headers were nitride carbon steel. The brakes are dual pin J-56 calipers correct J-56 master cylinder and correct original caliper stiffening brackets.The transmission is an M-22 wide ratio (2.52 first gear) built by Ed Hartnett in PA and has the complete Italian Masiero gear set. The transmission has less than 100 miles because I originally installed a Richmond 5 speed and changed it because I didnA?a??a??t like the way it shifted. The shifter is a Hurst Competition Plus with a shortened handle and a knob from the 60s.To be true to the L-88 scheme I made the car a no radio and heater delete car by using an NOS no radio dash (black fiberglass correct for 67) and heater delete plates from Long Island Corvette. Al Knoch added headrests to the seats. The 36 gallon tank option N-03 is a real functioning tank and was installed correctly by a professional who has worked on tanker cars before and has restored MANY Bloomington Gold cars.Wheels are original American Racing Torque Thrust D spoke 15x6 magnesium with reproduction Firestone 920-15 Indy racing tires. The car also comes with the original 15x6 DC code rally wheels.ALL the original matching number components (engine transmission dated radiator and alternator radiator support dash frame with AM-FM radio 20 gallon metal tank stock flat hood heater assembly and radio antenna remain with the car. The car could be converted back to a matching number L-79 car in a matter of a few days but why would anyone want to ?REAL 1967 L-88 Corvettes sell for north of $3 million. Unfortunately mine is not a real L-88. However my car CAN be driven and enjoyed without the fear of damaging a multi-million dollar car.I built this car to suit ME and I cut no corners in building it. The car is black with a silver hood stripe.A $2000 deposit via PayPal is required within 24 hours of auction end. Final payment by wire transfer or bank check.
