- For 1965, the big news was the arrival of standard disc brakes and optional big block engine (initially 396 cubic inches with 400hp), which grew to two 427cid options for 1966 (390hp and 425hp), each of which gained an additional 10hp for the definitive 1967 model year. Thus, the 1967 427cid/435hp L-71 motor was the ultimate development of one of the most iconic American cars ever made.
- Ticking the L-71 option box gave a reported 435 hp triple carbureted engine with wild cam, high compression, and performance. Automotive press raved about the power and usability of the Corvette, particularly in the roadster configuration, which made top-down driving exhilarating especially when ordered with the 4-speed manual transmission and 4.11:1 axle ratio.
- Legendary torque and acceleration captured under a race-bred body made the last of these iconic Corvettes among the most sought after by collectors and performance enthusiasts.

- The body displays great fit and finish with nice gapping at the doors and hood line.
- The retractable headlight doors are smooth and fit well, opening and closing per factory specifications.
- The chrome plated bumpers are correctly fitted and aligned to the front and rear body contours, while the finish is in excellent condition.

The instruments are colorful and detailed, as are the switches, bezels, and radio.
- The carpeting, various trim, rear interior pieces, pedals, and shifter boot are nice. The white convertible top is easily raised and lowered, and taut when latched in place, particularly given that the impressed NCRS experts who recently inspected the car believe this is the factory original top based on the markings on the rear window and various other details which are rarely replicated in restorations.
- The minor yellowing in the bead edging and in a few other areas of the white material are all indicative of original tops of this vintage. There are no tears or major flaws of significance in the soft top and the headliner is also in good condition.
- Under the hood, the engine and engine compartment has been properly finished to near original standards. While some of the components and hardware have seasoned since the restoration, this does not detract from an otherwise nice presentation.

- A recent inspection by NCRS Corvette experts confirm that this car is equipped with 1967 42 amp (heavy duty) alternator. Underneath the car, the suspension, driveline components, performance equipment, and factory brakes all appear correctly restored, displaying moderately used finishes but still very tidy overall. A copy of the Corvette Order Copy, assorted restoration receipts, and previous invoices dating back to the early 1990s accompany.
- As a 1967 427/435 Convertible, this Corvette is among the most desirable Sting Ray configurations. Beautifully restored and ready for driving enjoyment, local shows, or Corvette gatherings - it captures the zenith of the American high-horsepower high-displacement era like few cars can.
