1967 Corvette Stingray Packs 561-HP of Modern V8 Muscle – Retro Resale
The C2 Stingray features an accident-free fiberglass body crafted by Corvette Restorations AZ. Along with the immaculate body, a couple of bolt-ons were added to make it more aggressive and functional, while the fenders were shaped to perfectly frame the 18-inch Foose Nitrous Thrust wheels.
Powering the Stingray is a modern 6.0-liter LS2 Generation IV V8 powerplant built by Arizona Speed and Marine in Phoenix. All said and done, the ’67 Vette now sports an impressive 521 hp to back up its good looks. The motor is mated to a Tremec TKO600 five-speed manual transmission.
But a real sports car can’t just look good and boast a lot of horsepower; it has to stop well and handle like a modern machine. This Stingray accomplishes both thanks to a a hydroboost four-wheel disc brake system sporting four-piston C5 calipers in the front and four-piston C3 calipers in the rear. Suspension upgrades include Bilstein shocks and Vette Brakes and Products’ fiberglass transverse rear leaf springs and suspension kit.
Dropping the top to reveal the interior, the Stingray features OEM-quality vinyl with restored bucket seats and a six-point roll bar. Included with the purchase of a vehicle is a CD full of restoration photos, build receipts, and a stack of component manuals.
