1965 was a historic year for mid-years and Corvettes as a whole.
The most significant refinement was the addition of standard 4
wheel disc brakes. This was a drastic improvement over braking
systems in all years before beloved by magazine testers and racers
alike. This truly brought Corvettes into the realm of the world
class sports car with such makes as Jaguar Shelby. Other changes to
the 1965 model year included a restyling of the front side louvers
to three vertical slots, functional for brake cooling. Also, the
hood was redesigned to a more sleek design with no cut outs or
The Rally Red exterior is in nice driver condition. As one can see
in the photos the finish has a terrific gloss, deep shine, and
smooth finish. The chrome and other bright work looks fantastic
with a brilliant finish and no pitting. The hubcaps have a great
finish and no curb rash. The Pirelli White Wall tires have about
95% tread left. The soft top looks like new and the rear window is
crystal clean and not yellow or cloudy at all. There are no major
blemishes that have been excluded from the photos. There are some
imperfections in the paint visible in the photos above the left
headlight and blemishes visible in the photos very low down behind
the rear wheels as well as some imperfections that were too faint
to show up in the photos, but nothing else really noticeable from
about five or ten feet away. There has been some welding and
repairs to the frame over the years. We have included many photos
of the underside of the car to show how it looks with specific
photos of the areas most prone to rust on a C2 Corvette.
The Black interior in this Sting Ray is in outstanding condition.
The seats are in excellent shape with no split seams, rips, or
excessive wear. The carpet is also in good condition with no holes
or rips. This includes the rear carpet, which is often neglected.
The gauge faces are crisp and clean and the lenses are clear. The
door panels are in terrific shape; there are no cracks in the
typical spot where the driver's elbow sits. The door pulls are
solid and intact. The dash and console look great with no cracks or
sun fading. The original radio works and most importantly the dash
has never been cut or modified for an aftermarket installation.
This Corvette has never been smoked in; there are no burns marks
and no aroma of cigarettes.
This Corvette seems to be in good mechanical condition. It starts
right away every time, runs well, and idles smooth. It drives great
and feels nice on the road and at highway speeds. In the video
below one can observe the car accelerating on the highway up to
about 70mph, shifting through all the gears, braking to stoplight,
and going through some curves. Please note that there are no
strange noises and the car performs quite well overall. The disc
brakes are responsive and do not pull to one side or the other. The
Hurst shifter is tight, the transmission does not pop out of gear,
and the clutch feels good. There is no blue smoke when starting or
driving the car. Also, the engine compartment is beautifully clean
The car sounds absolutely awesome with the sidepipes, which give
this Corvette a very health and aggressive tone. The wipers work as
do all the exterior lights, indicators, and the radio has been
finicky, but also works and gets decent reception as one can see
and hear in the video. The headlights work and go up and down
properly, which is a very common problem on Mid Year Corvettes. The
entire operation of the headlights can be viewed in the video. The
horn, blower, and p-brake do not work. The speedometer works fine,
but the odometer does not. Not enough can be said as to how much of
a pleasure it is to drive this car, especially with the top down
and the 4-speed transmission on a beautiful day.
Overall, this 1965 Corvette Sting Ray Convertible is in great
driver condition. Convertible examples in this year range are
drawing a nice premium over a standard Corvette Coupe. This Sting
Ray is a great value and we have it priced to sell. Mid-year (C2)
Corvettes are, and will continue to be, the most collectable and
desirable Corvette generation. The value of these cars has gone up
exponentially in recent years. They are all solid investments for a
collector. While this is not an NCRS Top Flight or Bloomington Gold
car, it is a very nice driver quality Corvette and a great car for
the money. One could easily enjoy this vehicle for several years
and sell it for more than the purchase price with minimal
