Tim’s 1967 Corvette Stingray

For years, every time Tim visited his sister and brother in law, he saw this 1967 Corvette Stingray. Finally in 1978, he bought it from his brother in law, but it needed to be rescued.The 1967 Corvette Stingray had been sitting in their garage for 3 years, and had obvious signs of a rough life.

When Tim purchased the car, he became only the 3rd owner of the vehicle. This 1967 Corvette Stingray started life with the coveted 427 ci. big block with 435 hp, but that motor had seen better days, after years of abuse, it was replaced with a 327 ci. small block with 350 hp.

To that Tim added headers and a 750 Holley carburetor and a new camshaft. Then adding a new MSD ignition , a 6AL Brain, all of which he did himself with the assistance of his nephew.With the addition of the parts, this 4 bolt main 327 small block now had plenty of performance. Then to make sure this performance had the right sound they added a set of Flow-Master 40 Series muffler


As the years went by, and the project was near completion,
Tim did a complete interior restoration, and finally in 1983 took his 1967 Corvette Stingray to the local paint shop and had a fresh coat of Flame Red put on to the fiberglass. The car turned out beautiful with its Flame Red color and its custom padded hard top, the job was complete, except for adding a set of Cragar SS wheels and a new set of rubber on the corners.

Now Tim, for the last 15 years, enjoys showing his car, and cruising the streets of Michigan, not putting to many miles on her as it has only 56000 original miles minus the motor.


Job well done Tim, and thanks for letting us share your 1967 Corvette Stingray
