Corvettes for Sale: Green 1967 Corvette Convertible on Bring A Trailer


This classy-looking 1967 Corvette convertible looks right at home in photos taken at a marina, presumably in California where this classic C2 is currently up for sale on bringatrailer.com.

With five days left in the bidding, the highest offer has reached $45,555.

The car underwent a body-off restoration 20 years into its life, with photos showing a replacement frame installed during the 1976-78 refurbishing.

More than 40 years later, however, the Goodwood Green paint and the fiberglass body are in need of another restoration, though most of the damage seems to be chips, scratches, and scrapes and actual body damage seems minor, mostly confined now to the wheel well lips and right front turn-signal housing. The white ragtop could also stand replacing, with tears, seam separations, and yellowing on the plastic window.

The car was sold new in Pennsylvania, eventually heading south to Florida before the current owner bought it in California in 2016.

Mechanically, the car retains its matching-numbers L79 327/350 horsepower V8 engine hooked to a Muncie four-speed manual transmission. The seller has rebuilt the Holley carburetor, replaced exhaust components, and sandblasted the exhaust manifold. The disc brakes have been refurbished and the master cylinder rebuilt with stainless sleeves during the past six years. Service in August included fluid changes, new coolant hoses, and repair of an oil leak.

The Saddle interior looks very nice against the Goodwood Green paint, with the leather seats having been reconditioned this summer and the door locks adjusted and repaired. There is a hole in the driver-side seatback leather.

Included with the sale will be service records back to 2014, manufacturer’s literature, Corvette manuals and brochures, the original warranty Protect-O-Plate, copies of previous voided titles, restoration photos, and a clean California title.

Overall, this ’67 Corvette isn’t far away from becoming a shining gem and appears to just need a little polishing to bring it to the next level.

    Tempting
    Had a ’67 Marlboro Maroon 327/350 4spd and wish I still did
    Beautiful, fast, reliable, fun, unbreakable

  2. I think you’re minimizing what needs to be done to this car to bring it up to “presentable show” (not pristine) condition. My experience tells me when you’re getting into wheel lip cracks, etc., you’re close to seam cracks and one thing leads to another and before you know it, you have a significant glass re-work project ahead. And from the pics, the interior looks like it’s got to be replaced, not just refreshed and/or “polished”. You haven’t given the mileage, but I’d guess this car has had significant use. Bids are already at a level where restoration costs might leave you with more invested than this specimen is worth. Personally, I wouldn’t be spending the initial and repair costs on a run-of-the-mill C2 car anyway, as it’s my least favorite model. Just can’t seem to get beyond the body surround crease and the torpedo tube front fenders. But I’m sure others wouldn’t be interested in my C-3s, C-5 and C-7 either.

  3. Love my 67 convertible glad it’s not green. With all that has been done to this one the only elephant in the room is the frame replacement. Looks ok on the outside and the 350 horse is a great option.

  4. Agreed, as per the marketplace for those “special” C2s. But there is nothing “most valuable and desirable” with THIS C2. Most collectors look for a car to have certain attributes that make it valuable therefore desirable to them, so they’re not just looking for a nice looking, sounding, running car that for some might become a daily driver. And fortunately there are LOTS of those out there, which this particular car can be with the right attention and effort. If it’s the one for you, then have at it and enjoy. Remember, cars are different so they will appeal to different people for different reasons.

  5. I have a 64 coupe that has been retroed in some ways including 69 4 bolt 350 with roller cam and rockers,the car came with no air ,so a vintage air system does the job in texas heat.the car has been converted to front disc brakes to make it a driver.the paint was done with cherry red ppg,black interrior.this stingray is one fun driver.
