Back in May we revealed the Corvette Dream Giveaway raffle to benefit the Kids Wish Network was pairing a unique 1 of 1 Hero Edition Corvette ZR1 with a classic 1967 Corvette Convertible that will be given away to one lucky winner on Christmas day. While the focus on that blog post was the special edition Corvette ZR1, we thought it appropriate to take a closer look at the big block Sting Ray that will also be given away to help make a child’s dream come true.
Six different engines ranging from the base 327/300 hp to the ground shaking 427/430 hp L88 were offered by Chevrolet in 1967. This 1967 Corvette features the 427/390 hp L36 big block, an option that was chosen by just 16.7% of buyers for an additional $200.15. Factor in the 4-speed transmission, side exhaust and bolt-on wheels, and you’ve got a very nice cruiser with power to spare.
Black Corvettes today are everywhere with the single color being chosen above all others at Bowling Green’s assembly plant. But back in the sixties that wasn’t the case. Of the 10 exterior colors offered in 1967, only 3.5% or 815 of the 22,940 Corvettes that rolled off the St. Louis production line were painted Tuxedo Black.
We believe that in today’s current market, this beautiful 1967 Corvette is valued around $70,000.
The 2009 Corvette ZR1 will be joining the 1967 Corvette this week for public display at Summit Racingâ€™s Georgia retail store in McDonough, just south of Atlanta off of I75.
Tickets for the Corvette Dream Giveaway start at $3 and there is no cap on how many will be sold. Purchasing more tickets will actually decrease your price per ticket and proceeds will go to the Kids Wish Network to fund their Hero Program. One winner will be chosen on Christmas day so make sure you get your tickets by visiting WinTheVettes.com or calling 866-WIN-Both to order by telephone.
