For Sale: 1965 Chevrolet Corvette in O'Fallon, Illinois

Vehicle Description

Gateway Classic Cars of Fort Lauderdale is excited to present this stunning 1965 Corvette L75 4-speed, in Glen Green on dark green. C2 Corvettes (1963-1967) were a big improvement over the first generation cars, with a new chassis, independent suspension at all four wheels, along with discs brakes and improved interior. The earlier C1 Corvettes were beautiful, but the interiors do not afford as much space, and the solid rear axle limits handling capabilities. The 1963 chassis design was so good it ran (with very few modifications) all the way through the last C3 in 1982. This California "Black Plate" Stingray sold new on July 30th, 1965 at a total cost of cost of $4,414 to a buyer in San Clemente, California. The original Protecto-Plate and considerable documentation back to new is included with the sale of the car. It is the original factory engine per the owner, who also claims miles to be correct. The car looks black at first glance but is in fact a gorgeous dark green color that changes with the light. The body, paint, brightwork- and a gorgeous set of reproduction Kelsey-Hayes wheels all look terrific- testament to the care and cost required to bring a car to this level. Corvette gurus in the area viewed it when it came in and said "this is VERY nice car". We could not agree more! The cockpit-like interior feels great. The folks at Chevrolet really got it right, from the aircraft like dashboard, array of gauges and controls, down to the crisp-shifting 4-speed shifter. This car fires right up and drives as if it just rolled off the assembly line. Time travel anytime you want it! There is nothing like hopping in a 57 year old automobile- one where someone clearly took the time and care required to make sure it operated as it was originally designed to. This car is exactly that. Air conditioning was tastefully added, making this Stingray as cool inside as it looks outside. The L75 327 4 barrel 300 horsepower V8 is connected to a Muncie 4-speed, and the standard exhaust system exits out the back- making it more pleasant to drive than one with side pipes. Seldom do we see such a nice car in this price range, and we suspect it will sell soon. The car runs and drives as new.
