It’s one thing to have a mint, fully restored 1967 C2 Corvette, but it’s a different scenario if a pristine example of the legendary sportscar is completely unrestored, unrepaired and unmodified in any way. It’s hard to find a classic car with those attributes, but this 1967 Sting Ray convertible for sale by Mecum fits those requirements to a tee, earning it the Bloomington Gold Certified Survivor designation.
Due to its unrestored state, Mecum says this C2 is “almost without peer in every sense of the word.” The car is painted Rally Red with a Black Stinger stripe and has a Black convertible top, a Black interior and the special Red Stripe tires. Under the hood is the 435 horsepower L71 427 V8 linked up to a Muncie 4-speed close ratio transmission. It has low mileage, just 18,688 miles, and has won the Bloomington Gold, NCRS Top Flight, Vette Fest Triple Crown and Spinner Concours awards.
Most importantly is the car’s Bloomgton Gold Certified Survivor designation. It is one of only 200 Corvettes to earn the title, which is considered to be the most difficult to obtain for unrestored vehicles. Mecum says “a very select few Corvettes of any vintage have been so well conserved”, or attained this car’s credentials and high status. Interested? It will go under the gavel at Mecum’s Dallas auction starting on September 3.
