Here’s a 1967 Corvette convertible COPO now for sale on eBay that you don’t see every day.
This particular Corvette is one of only 13 Shriner Patrol Corvettes ordered in 1967.
From 1957 to 1981, the Tangier Shrine Temple of Omaha, Neb., ordered at least 10 new Corvettes to use in parades across the country every year.
This 1967 model is white with blue interior and still has the original numbers-matching 327/300 engine coupled to an automatic transmission. The Corvette is optioned with power steering and speed warning and still has the original keys and original spare. The seller says that it’s the only Shriner Patrol Corvette ordered that year with factory side pipes.
The original owner sold the car back to the dealer to buy a new ’68 model, and the current seller says he bought it from the second owner who had bought it from that dealer in 1968.
The eBay seller claims there hasn’t been a 1967 Shriner Corvette for sale in more than 10 years and points out that his car can be documented as the real deal based on the tank sticker/build sheet and the VIN number.
Despite showing just under 77,000 miles, the seller admits that the car isn’t running and needs restoration. Still, though, he notes that the frame has only surface rust and is solid with no holes and the birdcage is likewise solid with no rust.
The starting bid on the car is $45,000, and it features a buy-it-now (as it is) price of $47,500. No one has placed a bid on this unusual Corvette yet, but 17 people are watching. The seller says he can do a full restoration for the new owner if so desired.
This is the first car in the picture of all of the Shriners picking up their Corvettes from the assembly plant in St. Louis, Mo., in November 1966, the seller says.
The eBay auction for this unique 1967 COPO Corvette ends on Sunday as 12:56 pm ET.
