This description is taken from the NTSC version of Gran Turismo 2:
1967 was the last year for the classic knife-edged styling used on the Corvette since 1963. But Chevrolet didn't leave it alone. As previously, the '67 'Vette was available in coupe or convertible body styles, and the suspension was independent all around. Engine choices ran from a 300 hp version of the 327 cubic inch (5.4-liter) "small block" V8 through the L88 version of the 427 cubic inch (7.0-liter) V8 with 500-plus horsepower. Only twenty L88s were sold, at a high premium, and only to racers. The "regular" L88 427 wasn't exactly underpowered, with 435 hp at 5800 rpm and 460 stump pulling lb-ft of torque at 4000 rpm. As an added benefit, the 1967 engine was considerably lighter than previous big-block V8s for much improved weight distribution for better roadholding. The 427's sub-5-second 0-to-60 time is excellent even by today's standards. The 327 version was no slouch, either. The hot version of the small block made 350 hp at 5500 rpm, with 360 lb-ft of torque at 3600 rpm. Sixty mph came up in just over 6 seconds. The '67 Corvette had good cornering abilities by the standards of its day, and considering the size and quality of tires available at the time. Four-wheel disc brakes, a rarity at the time, enabled it to stop well. The 1967 Corvette combined style, performance, and refinement in a way rare for its day.
