CORVETTE 1968 STINGRAY 427. The Chevrolet Corvette C2, also known as the Corvette Sting Ray, is a sports car that was produced by Chevrolet for the 1963 to 1967 model years. The 427 was available with a Holley triple two-barrel carburetor arrangement, which the factory called Tri-Power. The ultimate Corvette engine for 1967 was coded L88, even wilder than the L89, and was as close to a pure racing engine as Chevy had ever offered in regular production. Besides the lightweight heads and bigger ports, it came with an even hotter camshaft, stratospheric 12.5:1 compression, an aluminum radiator, small-diameter flywheel, and a single huge Holley four-barrel carburetor. Although the factory advertised L88 rating was 430 bhp at 4600 rpm, the true rating was said to be about 560 bhp at 6400 rpm. The very high compression ratio required 103-octane racing fuel, which was available only at select service stations. Clearly this was not an engine for the casual motorist. When the L88 was ordered, Chevy made several individual options mandatory, including Positraction, the transistorized ignition, heavy-duty suspension, and power brakes, as well as RPO C48, which deleted the normal radio and heater to cut down on weight and discourage the car’s use on the street. As costly as it was powerful – at an additional $1,500 over the base $4,240.75 price – the L88 engine and required options were sold to a mere 20 buyers that year. With potential buyers anticipating the car’s overdue redesign, sales for the Stingray’s final year totaled 22,940, down over 5,000 units from 1966 results. Meanwhile, Chevrolet readied its third-generation Corvette for the 1968 model year.

    CORVETTE CROSSED FLAGS

    The CORVETTE CROSSED FLAGS - when Chevrolet was preparing their new Corvette sports car in the early '50s, the task of designing the logo fell to Chevy interior designer Robert Bartholomew. Bartholomew's design featured two crossed flags: One, the checkered flag that symbolized race victory, the other, the American Stars 'n Stripes. However, using the American flag to promote commercial products was illegal at the time, and Chevy execs reportedly decided at the last minute to nix that part of the design. Bartholomew's last-minute replacement was a flag sporting both the Chevrolet logo and a fleur-de-lis, a French symbol that was reportedly part of Louis Chevrolet's family crest. New badges were whipped up based on Bartholomew's drawings, and the Corvette debuted in 1953 at New York's Waldorf-Astoria hotel. There are two types of this plate (a) with the 1960's flag logo GM Trademarks used under license to 49X95 - GM barcode 99L0971 (b) with the 2005 flag logo MC50152 GM Trademarks used under license to 49X95 - GM barcode 99L1166 See below for various flag logo years and types types.

    The impressive and collectable CHEVROLET CHEVELLE SUPER SPORT SS 1967 COLLAGE Sign shows lovely interior and exterior images of a Blue 1967 Chevelle SS with the 427 Turbojet logo at the bottom right. The Chevelle Super Sport, or SS represented Chevrolet's entry into the muscle car battle. The 1967 models received a facelift. Large wraparound tail lamps went into a new rear end with standard backup lights. "What you'll see inside," claimed the sales brochure for the 1967 Chevelle, "will probably bring on a severe compulsion to go driving." Front disc brakes were available on all models, and a new dual master cylinder brake system incorporated a warning light. Chevrolet also added 14" wheels and a three speed automatic transmission to their line of transmissions. New safety equipment became standard, including a collapsible steering column.  The SS396 continued as its own series with both sport coupe and convertible body styles. The 375-horsepower 396-cubic-inch V8 was dropped from the options list until late in the model year and returned with 612 being sold. Seven transmissions were available: two manual three-speeds, two manual four-speeds, an overdrive three-speed, and two automatics. The manual-shift feature of the Turbo Hydra-Matic transmission was featured. Options included Superlift air shock absorbers, Strato-ease headrests, and special instrumentation Novelty Tin signs are great for adding a touch of fun or nostalgia and there are heaps of them available with everything from Classic Muscle cars to Hollywood legends.
