For Sale: 1965 Chevrolet Corvette in St. Louis, Missouri

Vehicle Description

The Corvette continued to charge ahead year after year with new improvements and added horsepower! The faux hood vents were removed, replaced by a trio of fender vents that more effectively reduced engine heat. The wheel covers were redesigned. New for 1965 was a 396ci/425hp big block that essentially replaced the more expensive 327ci/375hp Fuel-Injected option, which was phased out the following year. Also new were standard 4-wheel disc brakes for added stopping power along with optional side-mounted exhaust systems. These enhancements made for a successful production year in Chevrolet showrooms with 23,564 Corvettes produced, of which only 8,186 were in coupe form!

Offered here is a 1965 Chevrolet Corvette L76 Coupe! It is refinished in Rally Red (originally FF- Nassau Blue) with a STD- Black Vinyl interior. It retains its original, number's matching L76 327ci V8 small block factory rated at 365 horsepower, 4-speed manual transmission, and AP-coded 4.11 Posi-Traction rear axle ratio! It went through a comprehensive body-on restoration in approximately 2015! Options include power-assisted disc brakes, power steering, power windows, rear window ventilator, upgraded AM/FM/Cassette radio with rear compartment speakers, power antenna, heater/defrost, and day/night rearview mirror, brand new 15" aluminum knock-off wheels wearing fresh 1" radial whitewall tires measuring 215/70R15.

More recently in 2021, the engine received a complete disassembly, cleaning, and full rebuild. The "double hump" heads were machined and treated to a full valve job, all new valve guides, springs, roller rockers, and hydraulic lifters. The block retains the stock pistons with new rings, upgraded hydraulic camshaft & cam bearings, all new main and rod bearings, stock crank, new oil pump, new Quick Fuel Technologies Brawler 650cfm carburetor with mechanical secondaries & electric choke, rebuilt water pump, new thermostat, chrome alternator, all new hoses & clamps, and gaskets throughout! A new Old Air Products air conditioning system was added during the engine-out process, adding to a more comfortable driving experience in the summer months. It operates extremely well!

The transmission was fully rebuilt with new synchros, resurfaced flywheel, scatter shield, Hurst short-throw shifter, and Centerforce clutch. It was also fitted with a full chambered exhaust system for a terrific sound! Today it has less than 100 miles driven since completion! The rubber suspension components, all brakes hoses and brake pads were all replaced within the last 5 years. Please feel free to call with questions, special requests, or to schedule a physical inspection! Thanks for looking!
