The "Stinger" hood - featured only on 1967 big block (427 cubic inch motors) equipped 'vettes - is a Corvette classic. Its effect is to somehow magically cause wallets to open up very wide whenever one is offered for sale. They were usually painted in contrasting colors at the factory.

There were some changes in the 1967 Corvette interior, including the movement of the emergency brake to the center console between the passengers. Previously it was located under the dashboard and accessible only to the driver. The change moved the Corvette towards its sports car intentions.

Other safety related changes appeared, including an energy absorbing steering column, a thicker dash pad, and mushroom shaped knobs. A dual circuit brake master cylinder was standard in all Corvettes and included a warning light if one of the circuits failed.

Other changes included a shatter resistant vinyl padded rear view mirror with a break-away mount, four way emergency flashers and a "freeway lane change" function on the directional signal switch. Headrests (RPO A82, $42.15) were an option. Most of the changes would soon become law, but the Corvette jumped the gun a bit.

Above: A Corvette equipped with an automatic transmission was a bit of a rarity in 1967 and most of the other mid-year models. Only about 10% were so equipped, which says a lot about the buyers and their cars.

Above: Ad for 1967 Corvette which featured the four speed manual transmission revealed a lot about GM's Corvette intentions, it's owners and automotive philosophy. Even in 1967 many automobile designs tried to remove the driver from the function of driving as if it was a chore to be avoided. For Corvette owners, driving was an art and the tools, such as a solid manual transmission, enhanced the experience.
