The second-generation Corvette introduced the world to a brand-new automotive experience. The design language and performance were previously unseen at the Corvette's price point. The radically designed fiberglass body sat upon a highly tuned race-inspired chassis and a new fully-independent suspension system. As a result, the handling characteristics were massively improved over the previous generation Corvette. Chevrolet also abandoned the previous inline-6 in favor of a series of powerful V8 engines. Auto-enthusiasts fell in love with the futuristic styling and performance. The C2 Corvette has become a mainstay in vintage motorsports and serious classic car collections for its fantastic performance and undeniable significance to the American sports car market.
The 1965 Chevrolet Corvette offered is an excellent example of the Sting Ray and has been treated to significant restorative work and mechanical enhancements. The Rally Red over black leather interior is a classic color combination that perfectly suits the Sting Ray coupe's aggressive styling. The exterior benefits from the addition of a side-exit exhaust and polished American Racing Torque Thrust wheels wrapped in BFGoodrich Advantage T/A Sports. The interior was reupholstered with high-quality OEM materials. The cabin retains a factory look but has been upgraded with Auto Meter Pro-Comp Ultra-Lite gauges, a Hurst short-throw shifter, and a leather-wrapped Moto-Lita steering wheel. Under the hood lies a Chevy 350 crate engine sending approximately 350 horsepower to the rear wheels through a 4-speed manual transmission. This C2 has been fully worked through to ensure reliability and performance.
