1967 was to be the unveiling of the third generation “MAKO” styling. However design problems showed the “new” Vette wasn’t ready, so it was decided there would be one final Stingray for 1967. With very few modifications from 1966 the 1967 was born. The two biggest changes were the addition of a 435 HP 427 cubic inch engine that featured a tri-power [3x2 barrel carbs] intake and a special new big block hood featuring a unique hood scoop. With looks and performance [0-60 in 5.5 seconds and a 13.8 second 1/4 mile] the 67 Corvette really stood out. It also remained a favorite at race tracks, drag strips and stop lights. This Revell kit features all those options and more!
For the Modeler: This is the Revell 1967 Corvette Convertible 2n1 kit #85-4087. It is a 1:25 scale, Skill Level 3 kit with 156 parts molded in White, Chrome, Clear, and transparent red with soft vinyl tires. This is a modified reissue of Revell/Monogram #85-2968 tooling and finally [and best of all] the modification was making it a 2n1 kit. The kit now features a racing version to go along with the stock version and at 156 pieces it is very detailed. I decided to do the race version of the kit for my build, but it should be noted that it also builds as a great stock replica. This kit features a choice of two hoods and two different wheel styles, plus a separate plated windshield frame. The finished dimensions are; Length 6.75”, Width 2.875”, Height 2.0”.
