1967 was the pinnacle year of the C2 and is one of the most sought after examples of a Corvette. It was supposed to be the first year for the C3, but Chevrolet prolonged the C2 by a year. The C2 Corvette design was awarded number 1 out of the top 100 car designs by “Automobile Magazine.” They said, “Like James Dean, JFK, and Jimmy Clark, midyear Corvettes left the scene at the peak of their game.”

This car was discovered in a barn at the original owners house. We pulled the car out. We have the original CT title. The car was parked since the early 1980's. Once we pulled the car out and brought it to our facility we removed the original fuel tank and carefully dusted off the tank sticker and carefully removed it. The Tank Sticker was scanned and sent to NCRS where they, “Validated,” it. The engine pad was cleaned and sent to Al Grenning where it was validated to be the, “born with,” engine as well.

A restoration was commenced on the car, we pulled the body of the frame, we stripped everything off of the car. The frame was sent out for powder coating, all of the driveline was rebuilt, the trailing arms were rebuilt. All of the original hardware was sent out to be replated. The body was completely stripped and the car was painted with single stage urethane and done to replicate the original type of finish. Every item on the car was carefully restored to be as close to factory production. The engine was all rebuilt with a roller cam, roller lifters and roller rockers. It was balanced, blueprinted and dyno'd. It's putting out about 475hp. This car was restored to drive and not just show. All of the natural components were coated with a matte clear to preserve them, the half shafts were shot peened as the original ones were done on the Big Blocks. A Centerforce lightweight flywheel was used as well as a Centerforce clutch.

The car was debuted at the NCRS Metro Long Island event in May of 2022 where it earned a Top Flight right out of the gate. Post show, we went through the judging sheets and changed some of the items to help the car score higher the next time out.

This is a true investment grade Corvette that is documented and awarded. It doesn't get much better than this example with a fresh frame-off restoration.
