Award-Winning Mid-Year Muscle
Rated at 435 hp at 5,800 rpm and 460 lb-ft of torque at just 4,000 rpm, the 67 L71 was both admired and feared in its day. And those numbers were what GM would admit to at the time. This stellar Marina Blue example belonged to Frank Stech of Pitman, New Jersey, when we shared it with you in our May 96 issue. Hes got a non-published number, so we were unable to find out what hes accomplished with this very special Corvette since then.
We can tell you, though, that this powerhouse had already captured Bloomington Gold certification and had amassed eight Top Flight Awards at the time we published it. Frank had plans then to go back to Bloomington (we can only assume in search of Benchmark status), and to continue the East Coast NCRS circuit.
Frank, if youre out there and still own this tiger, give us an update!
