1967 Chevrolet Corvette

This 1967 Corvette Convertible is one of the finest model you’re likely to come over – and it is trying to find a new home. And instantly making this ‘Vette special with the fact that it was the first Corvette built with the accessible RPO L88 alternative bundle.

Besides, the Corvette Convertible is the only 1967 L88 model painted in Tuxedo Black. The Mecum online ads stated that the car was requested by Tony DeLorenzo Jr., the child of former GM public relations officer Anthony G. DeLorenzo, with the intention of racing with it.

Zora Arkus-Duntov, aka the “Father of the Corvette”, requested Chevrolet  Engineering to update the brakes, suspension and motor some time recently DeLorenzo Jr. took conveyance of the car.

The L88 other package option includes an engine with fortified cast-iron piece, a fashioned steel wrench, manufactured poles, 12.5:1 cylinders, aluminum heads, a radical solid-lifter cam, dual-feed Holley 4-barrel carburetor and an aluminum admissions complex. GM formally cited this motor as creating 430 hp, but it may well be effortlessly tuned to 560 hp and 470 lb-ft (637 Nm) of torque.

The Corvette was entered into its first race, soon after it was delivered, which it won. After the 1968 season, it changed hands but proceeded to race all through the 1970s and 1980s, claiming a win at the 1982 Canadian Road Race Championship.
