By 1965, the Corvette's engine had grown to a capacity where disc brakes were necessary. This marked the beginning of a new era for the legendary Corvette. Over the years to follow, the Corvette would continue to grow as a refined street legal sports car. This particular example is powered by a V8 overhead valve engine that displaces 427 cubic-inches and produces an astonishing 435 horsepower. There are 3 x 2 barrel carburetors and a four-speed close-ratio manual transmission. An independent suspension can be found in both the front and rear. There is a Posi-Traction rear axle, transistor ignition, side-mount exhaust system, wooden steering wheel and an AM-FM radio.
This Goodwood Green Corvette with a white stringer stripe and white interior was sold by Stocker Chevrolet of State College, Pennsylvania on June 12th of 1967 to Mike Johnson.
Under another owners care, the car was given a restoration resulting in a reward by the National Corvette Restorers Society (NCS) with several Top Flights and the Duntov Mark of Excellence Award.
In 2009, this 427/435 Coupe was offered for sale at the Gooding & Company auction held in Scottsdale, Arizona. It was expected to sell for $130,000 - $150,000. The lot was sold for $132,000 including buyer's premium.Also photographed at :
