For 1965, Chevrolet made small changes to the Corvette in order to
provide a cleaner, more aggressive looking sports car. The car's
hood was smoothed out, losing the scoops of the previous model-year
and the front fenders received functional vertical exhaust vents.
The interior saw minor updates to the dash and seating. Chevrolet
introduced 4-wheel disc brakes and offered more engine options in
'65 than previously available with the Corvette.
This stunning Rally Red 1965 Corvette coupe is one of only 2;157 in its model year built with a big block L78 396/425hp engine. With an M20 4-speed manual transmission and J50 power brakes; this car is a joy to drive. The interior, complete with the Z01 comfort and convenience group, outfitted in white vinyl, rounds out a truly rare build. Undergoing a recent complete restoration, OEM compenets were used everywhere possible. The exterior paint, refinished in urethane, with no clear coat used, is one of the finest presentations on the market today. This Corvette presents a tremendous opportunity to own a highly desirable rare Corvette that has undergone a first-class restoration.
