Fly Low or Fly High, this legendary '67 Corvette 427 was photographed at the Dallas Love Field Frontiers of Flight Museum. Be sure to visit the historic Flight Museum if you find yourself in Dallas, Texas area. The heart of this last year C2 Vette is the optional L-68 Tri-Power 427. This was the tame hydraulic lift version of the 427, factory rated at 400 horsepower. Interestingly, this is the rarest of the two tri-power options in 1967. Only 2,101 buyers opted for this L68 option while 3,754 opted for the high-strung L71 435HP tri-power. This particular Corvette retains its original 427 "JC" suffix 400 horsepower tri-power engine, backed by the correct Muncie 4-Speed manual transmission.
The engine compartment is detailed to show. The engine stamping is still very legible and correct for this Corvette. The original VIN and trim identification plates are also intact under the dash and in excellent condition. You can still see much of the original green oxide primer under the dash. According to the trim plate, this Corvette was ordered in Tuxedo Black with leather interior. The braided or shielded plug wires & ignition shielding helped with interference from the optional AM/FM Delco radio. The triple Holley carburetors are correct atop the aluminum intake manifold. Although General Motor had put down a complete ban on tri-power carburetor during this time, the Corvette was exempt. This ingenious setup ran on the center carburetor most of the time, but over 2,000 rpms the remaining carburetors kicked in. This made for decent fuel economy at part throttle conditions.
This particular Corvette was ordered in Tuxedo Black with a Red Stinger, quite an attractive combination if you ask us. The interior ordered was the optional 402 Trim leather upholstery, quite supple and in great shape. The dash is in excellent condition. The instrumentation is fully functional, down to the clock and optional AM/FM Delco radio. The optional side exhaust system sounds exquisite behind the big block Chevrolet 427. Be sure to play our video of this Corvette in action on the street. This is a very good driving and running Corvette. The auxiliary vinyl covered hardtop is in excellent condition. The undercarriage is very clean and detailed. The suspension has been previously rebuilt front to back. The spare tire carrier is also in place.
The Tuxedo black finish was redone approximately 20 years ago. The paint is showing some flaws and imperfections, but is altogether solid. Please look closely through our photographs. We just had the finish professionally polished and detailed. Close inspection reveal bonding strips and fender lips intact throughout. It appears this is a true no-hit Corvette. The "Stinger" hood is correct, not a reproduction unit. These are the REAL Kelsey Hayes knock-off wheels, not reproduction units. You can clearly see the "KH" stamping evident on the inside of the wheels.
