1967 Corvette Sting Ray - Near Perfect

Most Corvette aficionados agree the L71-Powered '67 is the most magnificent Corvette ever built. Milt Robson's '67 Sting Ray convertible has every important option that was available for that special year.Is there such a thing as The Perfect Corvette? For many long-time Vette lovers, the answer is an emphatic YES, as they point to the '67 Sting Ray as proof. Five years of refinement and continuous production had taken a very good car and made it the symbol not only of sports-car superiority, but also of American automotive engineering, styling, and production in general. Starting with an all-new platform that beat its three closest rivals-the Jaguar E-Type, A.C./Shelby Cobra, and Studebaker Avanti-in terms of build quality, availability, affordability, street drivability, and gotta-have-it ability, Chevrolet improved the Corvette each year by adding new features such as four-wheel disc brakes, a four-speed gearbox made by GM's own Muncie Gear Division, optional air conditioning, the Mark IV big-block engine, and side exhausts.
