Default 1967 Corvette value

I have an opportunity to purchase a 1967 Corvette that is 2 owner and has been stored since 1974. The second owner traded the original owner a tractor for the car in 1974. The car has never had a wrench laid on it other than he had it repainted in 1986 due to the fact the barn roof leaked a dripped rust on the roof. The car is otherwise 100% original with all factory components in place.The original owner is still alive and is now 93.
The car is a 1967 coupe red 427/400 with 4 speed, 27,000 original miles black leather interior S ide pipes that looks like it should be on the dealers showroom floor.
The second owner is 79 years old currently. He showed me the car 2 years ago sitting in a heated barn on his property. I was absolutely amazed at its condition. It is a time capsule that has been impicably stored.
Would anyone be able to help with value. I would like to offer a reasonable amount for the car,but don't really know what the value of a1967 unrestored Corvette would be.

Thanks

To even get a rough estimate, you need to post some pictures.

any where from 40K to 100K. but like said pictures would help a lot. if you don't know that much about them I would suggest hiring help. also if its like what you describe this car is not for the novices

First, WELCOME to the CF! On the first page of the C1/C2 section (top portion) is a STICKY section with guidence for posting pics. Check it out. A good digital camera does best. Pics of the vin and data plate under the glove box door are necessary. After that, the engine stamp pad forward passenger side of the block below the head. Then all general pics of the interior gauges, seats, rear storage compartment. If you can get the car up enough, pics of all the rear suspension side to side and the same for the front. The more, the better. Dennis

Another perfect, no miles, two owner, all original 67 big block stored since low 70s in a barn. Fully documented. Amazing! Always offered to someone new to the CF with zero knowledge of mid year prices. Amazing!
What a wonderful world this is.
What is it worth? $200,000 should get it.
good luck!

Have never seen a car put into long, long term storage pulled out in mid-slumber for a repaint/spruce-up and then put right back into slumber. Rust stains from a galvanized barn roof? And fiberglass doesn't rust....rust stains would likely wipe off if the paint was as described....Red flag. Once a car becomes a shelf to put stuff on, a piece of static furniture, it stays that way until the owner dies. Consistently. If this is a genuine post, then Nowhere Man is right on the money.

Default should of seen that coming

OK



OK, I should of seen that coming. I apologize to all of you.
I googled 1967 Corvette values and found this forum. I thought what a great place to ask value. I completely understand why the negativity. First all i want you to know i am not some 16 year old having FUN. Nor am I a fraud or phony. I was just asking for Help so i can make a Fair Offer on the car.The car is everything I described and probably more. I am fortunate to have met this fellow in 2000 and had No clue until 2 years ago he even had a corvette. I was passing thru where he lives and stopped to see him and he had a few old tractors he had restored. I told him i was never into tractors but Loved Old Cars,that's when he showed me his Corvette and shared the story and history. No Reason to doubt him as I have known done business with him for 20 years. I was in Awe when he removed the cover from the car. It is everything I described. As for the barn roof he said it was leaking above a metal beam and had screwed up the paint from sitting in the original owners barn for years.

Sorry for the confusion

Assuming the car is as you described, I would value it in the $80,000 to $90,000 range. Maybe even $100,000 with a lot of documentation. Condition is everything. If you are going to spend that kind of money, it would be wise to hire someone with corvette knowledge to inspect the car for you. Sounds like a nice car. Good luck in your purchase!

You guys are forgetting that people where faking these cars back then and it was easier to do so as the pool of good parts where readily available

You mean an old farmer back then purchased this kind of car and since it could not pull a plow, he traded a tractor for it. Not saying it's not true but it sure is a crazy story.

Without seeing pictures and the car in person there is no way to put a true value on it. If it has been in a barn the frame and bird cage could be rusted, mice could have chew up the interior and wiring, bumpers rusted, barns can play an havoc on on cars.

If I were you I would do my homework and if it is what you say it is and nice history any price under a 100K is a good deal. This forum is great but has a lot of deferent personality's so don't give any information beside the car and walk softly around what people respond to, just take as entertainment

stuff is not not cheap if you have to hunt it, plus to have it correctly restored. Plus the little trinkets items.

I'm not an expert but if you read this forum, you will understand why many here are skeptical. There have been many too good to be true stories debunked. You will find good advice on this forum.
It sounds like your relationship with the owner is key. Maybe would rather see it go to a friend who is not just going to flip it. Maybe his family and local friends can't afford it and he doesn't want to deal with people he doesn't know. That might equal a good deal on a rare car.
It's definitely worth pursuing.
