One of the more lovely repaint limited editions, Franklin is sparing us the new images but revitalizing some of their more favorite sellers. In this case, the oft-done 60's icon of Corvette lovers, the 427 muscle car supreme, the '67 Stingray. Originally in Tuxedo Black with blue stinger stripe, the car sold immensely well. It carried the L88 engine, one of only 20 isseued in 1:1. Though listed at 430 hp, it was well over 500. The image was issued in 1994. In 1999, FM made a brave departure and issued the car model in clear cast plastic. A delight to look at, or through, it still wasn't quite ready to retire. As a "Rally Event" car, it was reissued in Elkhart Blue in an edition number of 3000. This revision, 8/2003, may very well be the best iteration, painted in deep metallic Marina Blue with white stinger. This car carries the L89 option. Still a 427/435, it featured aluminum cylinder heads. The interior is white and black. To be correct, however, the sun visors should be white but this tiny detail does not detract from the overall image. Tires are Speedway Blue Streaks. The car is very pleasing for old technology. 3 stars.

This item is available through catalog sales only. The issue price is $135.
