This is one of the few surviving 450-horsepower-rated 427 CID big block Corvette from this year, as the production numbers for this specific model range from 83 to 166, making it the lowest production of all mid-year big block cars (excluding the L88 and L89 vehicles, which are in a league of their own). The exact reason for Chevrolet dropping the rating down to 425 hp is shrouded in some mystery, but most historians agree that the decision was a political one, as the 450’s were a headache to insure.

Making this even more of a rarity, this is the lowest production number of the 1966 450 hp Corvettes ever documented and it comes with a plethora of additional options, including: tinted glass, power windows, special suspension, posi-traction rear axle, power brakes, transistor ignition system, side-mounted and off road exhaust system, power steering, cast aluminum knock-off wheels, goldwall tires, and AM-FM radio. While it is impossible to say exactly how many of this exact vehicle rolled off the line, over the last fifty years, as the sands of time have eroded the footprint Chevrolet made with its 450hp V8, it is safe to say that this is one of the few left with these options, color, and engine, possibly the last.

This Corvette is a unicorn of the car industry as even the biggest Corvette fans may never see one and some even question its existence. Search for this vehicle on the internet and you’ll find countless debates on Corvette websites and forums where half of those involved claim it to be nothing more than a myth. It’s not. This unicorn is real, and there is more than enough paperwork provided with the vehicle to prove it, including the Protect-O Plate and much more.

To verify the existence of this beast and experience its rarity and majesty, you can find HD pictures and an HD video of it running and driving at Gateway ClassicCars.com. If you are interested in purchasing this 1966 Chevrolet Corvette, or have questions regarding it, please call us at (262) 891-4253 or email us at Milwaukee@GatewayClassicCars.com.

Now for sale in our Houston showroom is this one-of-a-kind Jeff Hayes' built 1967 Chevrolet Corvette. Here are just a few of the custom-build's goodies: Custom Jeff Hayes build completed in 2017 by American Speed Shop in Bloomington Indiana New GMPP 376/525 Crate LS3 V-8 engine Electronic fuel injection Stainless shorty headers Side exit exhaust 5-speed automatic transmission Polished serpentine system including air conditioning, power steering and alternator Professionally fabricated chassis with C5 front and C6 rear suspension C6 Z06 Dana 44 3rd member Z06 power disc brakes with 6-piston front and 4-piston rear calipers Drilled and slotted rotors Vintage Air Power windows and hood lift Retro-look AM/FM stereo with Bluetooth New Auto Meter gauges Silver Pearl paint with Graphite Metallic stinger Custom Red distressed leather interior with Red carpet Billet grille Carbon fiber graphics 18 and 19 inch Spider alloy wheels Toyo Performance red-line tires American Speed Shop of Bloomington, Indiana, has executed a number of top-quality Corvette restorations and custom builds, and this 1967 Chevrolet Corvette Resto Mod is no exception to that tradition. The ultimate development of Bill Mitchell and Zora Arkus-Duntov’s Sting Ray concept, the 1967 Corvette is a great choice for upgrading to modern powertrain, mechanicals and passenger accommodations. The final year of mid-year body styling was the least cluttered and arguably most attractive of all, one that seems to encourage builders to preserve its beauty and keep most, if not all, modifications under wraps. In this case the Sting Ray’s stock features are preserved, even to the point of using 1967 Silver Pearl paint and decorating the big-block hood with a contrasting black-Stinger accent. All the correct chrome and stainless trim has been preserved, including the classic Bowtie chromed driver’s mirror and factory-style side exhaust outlets. There is modern Corvette power under the power-actuated hood in the form of an all-aluminum GM Performance Parts LS3 V-8 engine. Rated at 430 HP in the 2008 to 2013 Corvette, this electronically fuel-injected powerplant has been tuned to crank a mighty 525 HP through a 5-speed automatic transmission to the C6 differential. A completely powder-coated, professionally fabricated custom steel-tube chassis enables the use of proven C6 front and C5 rear independent suspension with aluminum double wishbones (also powder-coated). This allows a wide choice of rolling stock; here it comprises chromed 18-inch front and 19-inch rear Aluminum wheels, shod with Toyo red-stripe tires, 275/35-19 rear and 235/40-18 front. Visible through the wheels are the red powder-coated 6-piston C6 Z06 calipers up front, and 4-piston rear Z06 binders out back, which clamp down on drilled and slotted rotors, guaranteeing rapid deceleration from hyperspeed. Inside, you'll see its spectacular distressed red leather interior, which features power windows, Vintage Air, custom red carpeting, Auto Meter gauges, bolstered seats, polished billet controls and a retro-look AM/FM radio with Bluetooth. Don’t let this Jeff Hayes-built '67 'Vette be the one that got away! Options include: Retro-style AM/FM Stereo Radio with Bluetooth, Chromed Aluminum Wheels, Custom Red Distressed Leather, Power Brakes, Power Steering, Radial Tires, Seat Belts, and Tilt Steering Wheel. For more information on this 1967 Chevrolet Corvette, please call the Houston showroom at (832) 243-6220; or email us at "Houston@GatewayClassicCars.com".

Equipment is plentiful and includes Power four wheel disc brakes, side exhaust, Aluminum wheels, Power steering, A/C, Shoulder belts, Leather seats, AM/FM radio, Headrest and Power windows. There's no question that this is a very well equipped Corvette and is also quite rare painted in Tuxedo Black as Tuxedo Black was the least produced color for 1967. Mileage on the odometer is showing 65,764. We have marked the mileage as unknown due to lack of documentation but shows as if it is original to the car. This is an older restoration that still shows well and would be a great cruiser as is or an easy one to take to the next level and attend some NCRS meets for some judging. The 1967 Corvette is one of the greats as it is the last year of the mid year Corvettes and the last of the original Sting Ray. The mid year Corvettes went through a lot of transformations from 1963 to 1967 including a multitude of engines, the introduction of disc brakes and the big block in 1965, mild aesthetic changes with hoods and louvers and some colors specific to certain years. Some say that 1967 was the best and usually is when considered the last year of any generation as all tweaks for improvement have been made and refined.
