1967 Chevrolet Corvette Tanker

One of only two built in 1967. The explanation for the rarity of this 1967 Tanker Corvette lies in the fact that a new generation of Corvette had been planned for that year. Fraught with design issues, the new Corvette was delayed until 1968.

After a frame-off restoration that earned NCRS Top Flight honors, the car was inducted into the Bloomington Gold Special Collection.
The car is powered by the L79 327/350 HP small-block backed by a Muncie M20 4-speed and G81 3.36 Positraction rear end. This example is fully optioned with factory air conditioning, power steering and brakes, power windows, Soft Ray-tinted glass, whitewall tires, an AM/FM radio and the N03 fuel tank.
The car made $418,000 this spring at Mecum.
