Default Auction Results: Rare Black N Blue 1967 L71 Corvette Sells for $393,750

Mecum's High Performance Auction in St. Charles, Illinois last weekend was definitely the place to find some rare Corvettes. We already detailed the auction's top Corvette seller, a low-mileage one owner 1969 L88 Corvette which sold for $446,250. The second highest sale of the October 5-7th auction went to a very special 435 hp '67 Coupe. You know a Corvette is special when its known throughout Vettedom by a nickname.The Black 'N Blue 1967 Corvette earned the name due to its Tuxedo Black exterior with the Bright Blue Stinger hood. What? You haven't seen this color combo before? That's because only four documented '67 Sting Rays are known to share this very rare exterior color combination. This particular Corvette was restored by Houston's famous Nabers Brothers, who also restored ProTeam's Last Sting Ray. Featured options include the L71 427 ci/435 hp Tri-Power engine, factory side mounted exhaust, a close-ratio Muncie M21 4-Speed and 3:55 gears. Although not original on 1967 Corvettes, this Corvette has "Blue Line" Goodyears mounted to the factory original bolt-on wheels.The Corvette's original color was changed early in its life. Luckily, fate would lead to an inspection of the original trim tag by Corvette Hall of Fame member Dan Gale, which revealed the rare factory code 900 Tuxedo Black and Bright Blue stripe combination. Today the Corvette, with its Code 415 Bright Blue Leather interior is correct and outstanding in every detail, earning a Bloomington Gold Certification, NCRS Top Flight and the Chevy Vette Fest Triple Crown Award.A check of prices for 1967 Corvettes sold at auction against Keith Martin's Corvette Auction Results Database shows we have a top 10 Corvette based on the selling price of $393,750. Truly a beautiful and unique 1967 Corvette Coupe.
