In 2013, Chevy made a 427 for its 60th Anniversary. That it went ahead to become a memorable and befitting collectible is a truly good thing for hitting sixty is no mean fete for anyone.
Someone describe this Chevy as “a mix-and-match of Corvette parts.” However, in spite of borrowing heavily from the Z06 convertible, the 427 makes a lot of effort and distinguishing itself through inherent capabilities.
This car weighs all the way to 3,404 pounds, produces an incredible 505 horsepower enough to do 470 lb-ft of torque. It will smoothly hit 0-60mph in a paltry 3.8 seconds. All this power is delivered through its 7.0-liter LS7 motor V8 engine.
Virtually anyone who’s been lucky enough to slip behind the wheel in a 427 will hail praises at its easy handling, smooth gear-shifting, and quick response to just about any command given. It has a hypnotic arousing sound that urges you to stamp on the gas just a little more while promising to respond to smooth emergency braking if the need ever be.
It falls on the collectibles basket specifically because it was offered for just one year through, making a rare gem thereafter. You actually find that it was by no means a cheaply priced car as it was availed from $75 000.
Either way, Chevrolet found it befitting to be a little experimental with this car’s performance upping the speed and mating it exclusively to a six gear manual transmission unit.
