Corvette of the Week: “Holy Grail” 1967 L71
You can always make something better, so it’s hard to believe in the concept of perfection. But our Corvette of the Week may just make you a believer.
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.
The bets are starting to roll in on two hot Corvettes up for auction in April, and the speculation is that both could fetch up to $1 million each when they cross the block. The first up is the Bunkie Knudsen Corvette, a 1963 Corvette Sting Ray built specifically for General Motors Chevrolet Division General Manager Semon “Bunkie” Knudsen.
