Award-Winner '67 Chevy Corvette 427/435 Comes as Original Red on Red L71 Wonder

Not long ago, a new specialty/collector online car auction portal opened up for business with the target of disrupting the space by infusing as much transparency and user-friendly features as possible while also delivering a full auction experience even on mobile devices. Now it seems the platform, called Collectors Xchange, is getting positive feedback from sellers, judging by the availability of high-esteemed cars such as this very red 1967 Chevrolet Corvette 427/435.

We all know that for the 2020 model year of the C8 Corvette, the most sought-after color was Torch Red, and it’s really no wonder. After all, the crimson shade has been a darling for “America’s sports car” for decades. Let’s take this unrestored sensation from 1967, for example.

It’s not only a time-capsule survivor, but it’s also a big block V8 coupe touting red just about everywhere. The Rally Red exterior is matched by a pristine red vinyl interior, even though it has seen some action during the years, taking into account the 28,000 miles (45,000 km) seen on the odometer.

Those were miles well spent, though, as over the decades, this particular Corvette has been targeted with the appreciation of the experts, as per the description’s multiple Bloomington Gold awards, NCRS Top Flight, or the CCAS – Al Grenning Certified original matching numbers motor. It also comes with the original window and tank sticker (which is still on the tank), as well as a copy of the original sales invoice, among others.

Under the hood sits the fabled 427ci (7.0L) L71 big block V8 engine that was capable of churning out no less than 435 horsepower back in the day. The power is sent to the rear wheels via an M21 close-ratio four-speed transmission, and the car has nice creature comforts such as the power steering and brakes or the K66 “transistorized ignition,” to name but a few.

With all that taken into consideration, including the original dash tag promising “satisfactory FM reception up to 25 airline miles (40 km),” it’s no wonder the owner set up an incredibly high reserve. As the bidding already stands tall at $145k, the former hasn’t even been achieved just yet.
