“I have been collecting cars for over 30 years and have decided to sell my most prized and rare car in my garage. If you are a true and serious collector, you may want to consider looking at this car in greater detail.
I am selling my 1967 427/435 Marina Blue, 4 speed Corvette Coupe with A.I.R. (California Car with Air Injector Reactor). The car underwent a complete frame off restoration by one of the finest Corvette Restorers in the Country. Last Month, it was judged by the NCRS and won the Top Flight award with a score of 98.7! READ MORE, SEE THE PICTURES!
This is a 4 owner California car (I am the 4th owner) with just 23,754 DOCUMENTED Miles! My car has the ORIGINAL Engine, Transmission and rear end and has all numbers matching components throughout the entire car(which is fairly rare in today’s world of restamped engines and fake big block cars). I searched for over 2 years to find this car, as I have only seen 2 other cars like this in my life.
The restoration alone took almost a year and a half and was well over $100,000 (not counting the cost of the car). No expense was spared to ensure that this corvette came out correctly. Every component and part has been completely rebuilt or is NOS or new. I have owned many corvettes over the years with several Top Flight as well as Duntov Cars. None of those scored as high, were as correct or were as rare as this California 427/435 A.I.R. car.
As noted above, this is an early 1967 (Nov. 2, 1966) Marina Blue car with White Stinger hood, White and Blue two tone interior and the interesting option of Power Windows. The car has the off-road exhaust, Redlines and Rallys, exactly the way it rolled off the dealer floor.
The History of the car is fairly straight forward. The car was originally sold in Manhattan Beach, CA in 1966 and the original owner was then transferred to Evansville, Indiana. He sold the car to the second owner on 11/1/1969. The car was driven until the third owner purchased it in the Spring of 1976. The third owner drove it for a few years and then decided to store it in a Barn in Jefferson City, MO where it sat until just a few years ago. I then purchased it and decided to bring it back to it’s original glory.
I can go through the entire car, but suffice to say that everything is pristine, correct, numbers matching, accurate, original, etc….
I have over 80 current pictures available to view below as well as a complete photo library of the restroration on a CD that goes to the new owner. Additionally I have the original Owners Manual and Indiana inspection receipts documenting the mileage as well as a copy of the old title that lists Owner 2 and 3 as well as the documented miles. It now has a current GA title that again lists the documented miles. The gas tank was replaced in the summer of 1977 when the 3rd owner was on a roadtrip, so there is not a tank sticker available.
I highly encourage any seriously interested buyer to come view the car in person or send a qualified NCRS judge or Corvette expert to inspect this car. If you are looking for one of the most collectible and rare cars to add to your collection, I highly recommend you consider this car.
If you look at my feedback and the type and condition of the cars I have owned and sold on ebay over the past 10 years, you will see that I try to own only the best cars in the world. I have sold several cars at Barrett Jackson over the years and all have gone across the block during primetime on Saturday. Several Big Block Corvettes and a couple of Boss 429’s. (I still have one of those in the stable, but it is not currently for sale). I enjoy them for a few years until I get the bug to buy something else. The reason I am selling is that I have been thinking about getting something I have not had before so……
I may be interested in a partial trade, as I am looking to enjoy driving a car (both this car and the Boss 429 are far too pristine and rare to take out and drive-and Yes, they are trailer queens that most likely belong in a museum). Possible trades could be: Aston Martin, Wil Cooksey Corvette, Z06, Boss 302, Shelby GT500 KR, Parnelli Jones Saleen or Roush Mustang, Nissan GT-R or other interesting muscle car that could be a classic or current model. May even take a newer Tundra 4×4 or F150 4×4 to tow the Boss around to shows or a Cobalt boat.
NOTE: This is an opportunity to own one of the finest Corvettes in existence, as there are very few California A.I.R . 427/435 Corvettes left in existence and even fewer that have this provenance and pedigree. If you are truly a serious buyer and have any questions, please don’t hesitate to call me at 404-414-8832. Again, I encourage you to engage an expert to confirm the pedigree of this car. You will not be disappointed! “
