This unrestored corvette is so original and spectacular, that it has won both major Corvette awards possible for unrestored corvettes.    Please see the awards listed below.

      This rare 1967 Marina Blue Corvette Convertible was built in St. Louis, Missouri on January 17th, 1967.   This corvette was purchased new from Fulton & King Chevrolet., in Saint Marys, Penn.  on March 18th, 1967.    This Marina Blue 427 / 435hp Corvette is an exceptionally original corvette that was originally owned by Wilfred/Robert Yohe, of St Marys, Pa, for about  10 years ( from about March, 1967 until May, 1977 ).     A Corvette enthusiast from Louisville, Kentucky (Paul P.) purchased this corvette in February, 2002.   To the best of my knowledge, the car has had 8 to 9 owners ( mostly collectors ), including myself, during its 43+ year history.

     This corvette has a gorgeous original body and original paint, and a completely rust-free (never rusted) frame.   The engine is completely original and numbers matching with its high performance 427ci 435 hp big block V8,  Muncie 4 Speed transmission, and 4.11:1  Positraction rear end.    Over the years, this car has been nicely maintained as original. 

     This is a Corvette that is enjoyable to drive or show on any occasion.   The big block V8 with the Muncie 4 Speed is the perfect combination for someone who plans to use the car on nice weekends for shows, club events or pure driving pleasure, not to mention the investment value.   This car runs perfectly and will go anywhere.  This car also performs the way a high performance big block Corvette should perform…..straight and strong to redline, brakes perfectly, and smooth at any speed.

By The Numbers

     The original GM VIN plate and original GM Trim Plate on all 1967 Corvettes is affixed to the birdcage just below the glove box.   The VIN Tag and Trim tag on this corvette are absolutely original to this corvette.   They have been closely examined by at least a dozen different NCRS master judges, and both tags were determined to be original to this corvette.    The VIN Tag number and Body Plate are decoded as follows:

VIN Tag #194677S108328

First digit                                         1                     Chevrolet Division of General Motors

Second and third digits             94                    Corvette

Paint                                         976AA             Marina Blue exterior paint

Build Date                               F17                  Body Built January 17, 1967

Numbers Matching Original Engine

    This Corvette has the original and correct, matching numbers,  427cid/435hp high performance big block V8 as denoted by the 6 digits of the engine code.  These digits match with the last six digits on the VIN tag discussed above.  The engine pad on this Corvette is as it should be and the stamping is absolutely original and authentic.  Here are the numbers:

Engine Number # 7108328   T0106JE

First digit                                  7                      1967 Model Year

Next six digits                        108328            Production # 8,328 of 22,940

First letter                                 T                     Engine assembled in Tonawanda, NY

Next four characters              0106              January 06, 1967  Engine Assembly Date

Last two letters                       JE                   Engine suffix code  JE = 427ci/435 hp with 4 speed trans

                                                                                            (6,500 rpm redline tachometer)

Engine Block Casting  # 3904351

This casting number is correct for most 1967 big block engines.

Engine Block Casting Date # I  27  6

Engine block casting date codes begin with the letter "A" for January, "B" for February, and so on through “L” for December.  The letter "I" represents the month of September.   This first letter is followed by a digit, or digits, representing the day of the month ("1" through "31") followed by a single digit designating the last digit of the calendar year.

I 27 6  = September 27, 1966

Big block engines were assembled at Tonawanda, New York.   The engine in this car was cast on September 27th, 1966 and later assembled on  January 6th, 1967 (see Engine Number above).  Final assembly of the car was completed on or about January 17th, 1967.

Numbers Matching Original Transmission and Rear End

The transmission and rear end on this car are also original and correct for this car.   Here are the numbers:

Transmission, M-21, Muncie 4-speed

     This corvette has the original Muncie 4-speed M21 transmission.   The transmission is the original transmission that came with this corvette.   The vin derrative on the transmission matches the vin number of this corvette.. 7S108328.   The date stamp on the transmission is P7T28, which translates into December 28th , 1966, which also coresponds to the production schedule date of this corvette.

 Rear End # AP  10 10 66

     The rear end on this car is original to the corvette.  The first two letters “AP” represent an optional axle ratio of 4:11:1 with Positraction Rear Axle.   The remaining digits represent a manufacture date of  October 10th, 1966.  Corvette rear ends did not have a VIN stamping and can only be matched to the car based on the date and originality of the rear end.   In this case, the match is as good as it gets.

Contact and Payment Information

Please give me a call with questions on this car.   I enjoy the car hobby and I am more than happy to answer any questions.  I will also help arrange for an inspection and work with your shipper to get the car loaded for transport.  It’s fairly stressful buying a 40 year old car on Ebay.   I would strongly recommend coming to see the car in person, or hiring a competent inspector to examine any corvette purchase.   It is better to invest $500 than make a $ 300,000+ or more mistake, and you will feel great when the transport driver pulls up to your neighborhood and you know exactly what’s rolling off the back of his truck.   Bid with confidence….the winning bidder will be the new owner of this car.

The car will be available for inspection during the auction.   If you don’t have time to arrange for inspection prior to the end of the auction, you can inspect the car after the auction ends.  You can also travel to Louisville, Kentucky to see the car after the auction ends.   If you’re not satisfied with your purchase, you can pass on the car, and I’ll return your down payment and re-list the corvette.   Your travel expenses, however, are your own and I will not consider any reimbursement for your travel to see the car.   Also, once you have it shipped to your location, it’s yours to keep.  The car has been represented accurately in this ad and not too many people are willing to give the above terms.

Call Paul.  Cell is 502-648-4059 or 502-244-4400.  Leave a message, if necessary, and I’ll call back asap.  You can email me at kyimports@earthlink.net.   The car is located in Louisville, Kentucky and I will only accept cash at time of pickup, cashier’s check, or certified check for payment.   I have a clear title to the vehicle.  This is a  $ 300,000  to  $ 325,000 corvette.   I will need complete contact information and a $ 5,000 deposit within 4 business days of the end of the auction.   You must contact me within 24 hours of auction end by phone to confirm your deposit, payment and inspection plans.   This corvette is also advertised locally.
