Remember that 1967 Corvette L88 that sold for $3.85 million at Barrett-Jackson earlier this year? Well, there’s another one going up for auction if you found yourself a little short on cash to bid on that last one.
Corvettes, like all sports cars, have low centers of gravity, so when you’ve got a ‘Vette on three wheels, you’re doing some hard driving.
I always revel in sightings of major celebrities in Corvettes in California, especially when they are as big as this one. Maybe it’s the fact that after spending time in Los Angeles where so many celebrities drive Ferraris and Aston Martins, it’s always great to see one who has a little more taste.
Chimney Rock, Angels Window in the Grand Canyon, Cumberland Gap, Mount Rainier — just a sampling of some of the best sights in America … oh, and this 1965 Corvette Sting Ray 327/365 factory air-conditioned coupe. My eyeballs want to stick to this car like sap on a maple tree.
Is it me, or does it seem as though eBay is becoming the go-to spot for scouting rare collectible Corvettes? One of the latest I’ve stumbled upon is a 1967 Lynndale Blue Sting Ray equipped with an (L71) 427 Tri-Power V8 with 435 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque mated to a four-speed manual transmission. The car, being sold by Paramount Classic Cars, is now listed at $200,000 after bidders failed to meet the minimum price the seller desired.
