For Sale: 1965 Chevrolet Corvette in Morgantown, Pennsylvania

Vehicle Description

1965 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible

It is unwise to just tinker with an American classic like the Corvette Sting Ray. Changes should be meaningful. This fine road machine was and still is America's only true sports car. So, for 1965, the Sting Ray underwent subtle refinements in styling that only enhanced its unique looks and performance, always a basic measure of Sting Ray's appeal. A new "street" engine developing 350 horsepower answers most enthusiasts' needs for traffic and highway driving.

For consignment, a 1965 Bowtie warship, (Corvette) ,with a 327ci 350hp drivetrain, blue fiberglass, nice blue interior, body matching hardtop and a white convertible top in excellent condition. Knockoff turbine style wheel covers, front quarter air vents, (shark gills), and all restored to very nice condition, and we now have a classic for your driveway and ultimate enjoyment. Turn the key and be off!

Exterior
A repaint in 2016 of Nassau Blue drapes the fiberglass showing some areas of distress mini "fractures" on the wheel arch lips can be seen if you look very closely. With the split wrap around bumpers, hidden headlights, newly designed grille and a hint of a stinger on the hood, the design for the front of this car is meant to slice through the air. A chromed trimmed windshield surround, and sleek rear of this car with more split wrap around bumpers and round taillights. These year 'Vettes really had the shark/stingray look. A nice new in 2013 white clean canvas top in convertible form is atop, and sports a clear plastic rear window, as well as moves up and down with ease. Or should you want to enjoy some cold weather seat time, a body matching hardtop is included as well. All this aero art form sits upon 15-inch knockoff style wheel covers and all wrapped up in BF Goodrich raised white letter radial T/A's completes the "look".

Interior
Near perfect original blue vinyl covers the bomber style low back buckets that have a center console racing past them and up to the dash it goes. Here it ascends skyward housing the vertically mounted radio, and temp control knobs with a large chronograph clock in the center. From here the dash spreads out using 2 eyebrow arched panels, the driver's side housing the gauge and knob cluster, and the passenger side the brushed aluminum panel glovebox. Blue padded vinyl covers the dash top and is all in excellent condition. A teak wood steering wheel fronts this clean and mean dash and adds a touch of warmth to the overall interior. Speaking of warmth, showroom condition blue carpeting is flooding the floors, and a shout out to the door panels which are also near perfection with their molded plastic and chrome trimmings with chromed cranks, actuator and pulls. Behind the passengers a flip up tonneau blue fiberglass hinged panel covers not only the top in the down position, but also a blue carpeted storage area which is also nearly perfect in condition.

Drivetrain
Under the flip forward hood is an example of machined art with a full metal jacket 327ci V8 L79 power plant. This is looking fine with cast aluminum valve covers, a single correct Holley 4-barrel carburetor underneath the chromed air cleaner cover, and mixture is sent through a Winters Foundry aluminum intake manifold. A slight patina covers this engine but does not detract at all for the beauty within, even with the slight surface rusting of the exhaust manifolds. All this is numbers matching including the Muncie M20 4-speed manual transmission with an AW stamped 3.36 posi rear axle.

Undercarriage
A fine mix of black sprayed metal surfaces with little surface rust and patina seen throughout. All structurally sound and all mixed together with some sporty Corvette suspension, independent coil spring in front and independent with transverse leaf springs in the rear and 4-wheel disc brakes. Exhaust piping is quickly routed away from the engine and runs rearward exiting through cut outs in the rear valance.

Drive-Ability
A super quick starter, smooth idle and upon the press of the accelerator, a quick response to move forward, so it was off to the test track. Here it handled like it was on rails, had bias free panic stopping, and fantastic acceleration from that all buttoned up 327ci power plant. What's better is all the functions were indeed functioning, including the often troublesome pop up headlights.

A fine example of the 1965 Convertible Corvette, the right blue, the right top (convertible) and the right engine (327ci L79 4bbl), and on the prowl for its next victim. "When the shark bites...."
