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 is a fantastic example of a well-equipped restored convertible. With tremendous investment being made in restoring the beauty of this car, this Corvette is ready to win best-in-show. Powered by a 327 350hp V8 with a 4-speed transmission, and 3.55:1 posi-traction rear end, it performs like a true champion. During the restoration process, the owner was tremendously sensitive to correct components being utilized. From the correct air cleaner to the upper and lower ignition shielding and hoses and clamps, strict attention was paid to detail. With power steering, power brakes and power windows, this car is a joy to drive. For a buyer seeking a stunning Corvette that is fun to drive and even more fun to show, this is a tremendous option.
