Take flight in this classic Corvette.

A meticulously restored 1967 Chevrolet Corvette 427 L36 Convertible is heading to auction with no reserve this Monday on Bring A Trailer. Originally delivered to Lou Bachrodt Chevrolet in Rockford, Illinois, this iconic American muscle car showcases a striking Goodwood Green exterior paired with black vinyl upholstery. A true testament to automotive heritage, the Corvette comes equipped with a powerful 427ci L36 V8 engine and a four-speed manual transmission, promising a thrilling driving experience.

This Corvette has undergone an extensive refurbishment before the current owner's 2018 acquisition. Recent work in 2023 included a full disassembly for the refinishing of the engine block, along with replacements of the engine mounts, body mounts, wheels, tires, brakes, rear main seal, and more. The body was removed from the frame to repair and refinish the nose and front fenders, ensuring the car remains as pristine as its early days.

Adding to its allure, this '67 Corvette features a removable hardtop, a soft top for convertible cruising, and iconic side-exit exhaust pipes that contribute to its aggressive aesthetic and sound. The car rides on newly mounted reproduction turbine-style 15" wheels wrapped in BFGoodrich Silvertown tires. Inside, the cabin maintains its classic appeal with reupholstered black vinyl seats, a restored push-button AM/FM radio, and an array of functional gauges.

Highlighting its competitive edge, this Corvette not only comes with a copy of the NCRS Shipping Data report but also a 1996 NCRS Top Flight Award, underscoring its authenticity and high-quality restoration. With just over 72k miles on the odometer and about 1k miles since the latest extensive servicing, this car is ready to continue its legacy on the road or as a centerpiece in a discerning collector's portfolio.

Collectors and enthusiasts interested in owning a piece of American automotive history will find this 1967 Chevrolet Corvette an extraordinary opportunity to acquire a well-documented and beautifully restored vehicle that captures the spirit and performance of its era.
