43 of 50: Candy: 1967 Chevrolet Corvette Sting Ray Convertible C2

Even Stevie Wonder will agree that the Chevrolet C2 generation Corvette is one of the better looking convertibles ever made.  Prices of the C2 have been high for years, but you can still pick up a 327 or 350 powered 4-speed as a mid-life crisis or retirement present without digging too deep into your 401k, probably because Chevrolet built over 100,000 Sting Rays during the 5 years of production and few have ever been scrapped.  Find this 1967 Chevrolet Corvette Sting Ray convertible for sale in San Francisco, CA for $43,000 obo via ebay.  Tip from carcrasher88 via Jalopnik oppositelock forum.

This Corvette is being sold on consignment by a small dealer, and they claim that the seller has owned the car for 35 years, put $16k into paint/body in 2001 and recently dropped a new 350 ci crate motor into it.  The non-numbers matching aspect will scare away some potential buyers, but it doesn't reduce the fact that this is a very nice looking car for the money.


Take my money, please!
