C2 Prices Declining? Not True With This 1967 427 Corvette
Rarity and low mileage still keep prices elevated for some C2s.
A recent news story that ran across the front page here at Corvette Forum suggested that C2 prices are currently in a downward trend. But Mecum’s auction in Indianapolis has proof that some are still catching top dollar. Auctioned off by a family after the original owner’s unfortunate battle with cancer, this all-original big block Corvette skyrocketed to $675,000 before the hammer finally fell. But this is a very unique Corvette, and has certainly earned its value.
Meticulous maintenance and care means you’re not looking at a restored example here. Everything you see is all original, with the exception of the mufflers and the battery. Parameters like that are obvious contributors to the car’s value.

As you’d expect, the car’s documentation is incredibly thorough. Records of the days the car was started and mileage of each drive were included with the sale. Each drive must have been quite a thrill, though. After all, this car was equipped with the L71 475 cubic-inch big block and close-ratio manual transmission.
With a mere 15 additional miles accumulated over as many years, it’s doubtful the new owner would start to use it more regularly. Perhaps a restored example would be more suited to those duties, as it’s not often you come across one of the most original 1967 Corvettes currently in existence.
