A true legend in the automotive world, the 1963-1967 Chevrolet Corvette Sting Ray (C2) marked a turning point for American sports cars.

Larry Shinoda’s design was a radical leap forward, drawing inspiration from a visionary concept car years earlier.

More importantly, the C2 ushered in a new era of performance with the introduction of monstrous big-block V8 engines.

While the familiar 327 cubic-inch small-block remained the base option, a 396 cubic-inch powerhouse joined the lineup in 1965.

The real muscle arrived in 1966 with the earth-shaking 427 cubic-inch V8. This legendary engine came in four distinct variations for the C2’s final year in 1967.

Forget million-dollar L88s, this 1967 Corvette convertible is a legend in its own right. Sure, it wasn’t one of the 20 ultra-exclusive L88s, but with only 3,754 Tri-Power 427/435 horsepower engines built that year, it’s still a rare gem.

The convertible body adds another layer of rarity, making it one of possibly less than 1,000 Corvettes with this specific combination. But beyond the collector’s numbers, this Corvette is a true classic, offering an exhilarating driving experience wrapped in timeless design.
