No, it's not a C9 Corvette

The C9 signs in this photo are simply an identifying mark used as final pre-assembly decisions were being made about the last of the C2 Corvettes...the 1967. The spinners (on the new-for-'67 rallye wheel caps), and the cone-shaped mirrors, did not make it into production. The spinners were legislated out, just like the optional knock-off spinners of previous years were, due to new U.S. safety regulations. The side mirror couldn't be used because it was too short to see over the rear fender.

The story on the 1967 C2 Corvettes is that they we intended as the first C3 models for release to a waiting audience. However, delays on the new C3 body design slowed things, so the expected-refinements crafted into the final C2 year gave us the cleanest, most-handsome Corvette ever, without looking like a Japanese drifter. Many later designs offers trendy bells and whistles, scoops and creases and exotic lights...styles that appeal to many but may fade along with disco music. 1967ChevroletCorvette-red-girl.jpg

The C2, in its final iteration, reached that stage where a slow long gaze over its incredible line, tells you this is truly something for the ages.
