Now that the 2014 Corvettes at Carlisle show is over, we’ve been waiting to hear who won the “Keith’s Choice” award. Who’s Keith? Why, he’s a guy who writes for CorvetteBlogger.com, of course! And we’ve got to hand it to him − his choice is a neat 1967 Corvette that’s been subtly modified with nice detailing.
A group of vendors and folks in the media are granted VIP status and go around the Carlisle grounds to find which Corvette should win the Celebrity Choice Award. All of those chosen get to drive in the Celebrity Choice Parade. In Keith’s case, he generally focuses on 1953-72 Corvettes that were driven to the show and may have a good story behind them.
In this case, metro DC resident Dennis King has owned this 1967 Stingray since 1973, which he purchased for $2,000. The original 327 has been modified by him, including a neat homemade cowl induction tub surrounding the air cleaner. Other mods include driving lights in front of the grille, American Racing wheels, and the 427 hood with complementary striping that goes all the way back to the rear.
In the Corvette world, where stock is the status quo, Dennis’ C2 is a refreshing, well-done piece of fiberglass − nice choice, Keith! Watch the below video to learn more of the details of this special Corvette.
