"I recently purchased a vehicle from Jesmond and found the whole process to be a great experience. I found Jesmond to be a very obliging and forthright person to deal with and felt quite quickly, that he is a man of integrity. He was very accommodating and allowed me all the time I required in making my purchase, never at any time did I feel pressured or unduly influenced in any way. Having said that he did take the time to find out what my needs and wants were regarding my vehicle purchase and was able to steer me on the right path with his vast knowledge of European cars until I was able to decide clearly what it was that I wanted. Once I had made my choice of vehicle he supplied me with all of the relevant history on it (where it originated from, work history etc) and familiarised me with the vehicle covering its performance and general running and how to get the best out of it. He encouraged me to get a check on the car prior to purchase and informed me of the best agents and automotive engineers that were locally available. His obvious love and passion for his vehicles and European vehicles in general came across strongly and only enhanced my faith in him and the car I was considering to purchase. When the sale was made and upon uplifting the vehicle I was delighted to find a full tank and a bottle of wine included. A nice touch. In short I found Jesmond a very professional and amiable person to deal with and would have no hesitation doing further business with him and would recommend him to anyone that could benefit from what he has to offer."David Dowell, North Canterbury, New Zealand
The fiberglass-bodied sports car has been around through several body styles over the last few decades and an interesting phenomenon occurs whenever they change the shape of the ‘Vette.
Sophisticated car buyers thinking of buying one hold off for the new body styles. Shopping for one in 1962? Hold off for the updated 1963. Why buy the C5 in 2004 when you can get the C6 in 2005? As a result, the new models often saw a bump in sales while the older models would see a drop in numbers shipped. But flash forward a few decades and which are more collectible? As we know, rarity is one factor which often pushes price and desirability north.
Such was the case with 1967.
Chevrolet sold more than 27,000 Corvettes in 1966 but the numbers slipped below 23,000 the following year. In 1968, the sales would jump back up again to more than 28,000 with the new body style. Thus, 1967 Corvettes are rarer than the ones which came immediately before and immediately after. And it was the last year of what many people consider to be the iconic shape for the Corvette.

All these cars are slowly becoming extinct and a good one is hard to find plus 1967 was a good year for Corvette.
This one is up for debate, but there is a belief out there that Chevrolet’s C2 or second generation Corvette is one of the most important American sports cars of all time.
Perhaps even the most important.
Here’s the reasoning: the C2, with a well-developed chassis that included the adoption of independent rear suspension from day one and four-wheel disc brakes as standard by 1965, broke away from the typical perception that American sports cars were essentially lead-tipped missiles. They could actually handle and be produced with something resembling mass-produced parts.
Car and Driver magazine in 1967 reckoned the years of refinement of the C2 paid off in the 1967 model. In awarding it the title of Best All-Around Car in America for 1967, it said, "The Sting Ray is the most sophisticated passenger car made in America – in terms of engine, drive train, suspension and brakes – and among the best-engineered sports cars made anywhere."
Typically for this era of American car, the mechanicals are simple, robust and rely on brute force to do the job. That means your maintenance costs should be close to non-existent.
Car will be sold with a new WOF and registration.
