Vehicle Description

1965 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible          Movie car - played a celebrity role in the 2009 "Star Trek" film Chevrolet 327 CID V-8 Four-speed manual transmission Four-wheel disc brakes Maroon exterior with a white vinyl top and black interior  If you're seeking a celebrity car with some Hollywood history, consider this car from MotoeXotica Classic Cars, a 1965 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible that was featured in the 2009 Star Trek Movie! This Corvette had a role in J.J. Abrams' reboot of the Star Trek feature films in 2009, the series starring Chris Pine as James T. Kirk. In a scene near the start of the film, a 10-year-old Kirk careens through his hometown, Riverside, Iowa, behind the wheel of a mid-1960s Corvette Convertible. His actions attract the attention of a policeman who tries to stop him. Before he can apprehend the boy, Kirk bails out of the car as it drops 600 feet into a quarry. In a deleted scene, it is shown that the car belonged to Kirk's father, George, who dies on a mission during the film's opening scenes. After his death, George's brother in-law treats the car as his own. Young James discovered the keys while washing it and decided to carjack it in an act of defiance toward his uncle. The car's maroon paint is in fair condition with several blemishes - a chip on the right door, crazing at the nose, blemished paint on the right rear fender, chipping at front edge of hood and at the rear edge of the hidden headlights, etc. The car rolls on 205/70R15 tires and there are factory wheel covers with spinner caps. The car has tow bars in front to make it a snap to put it behind a camera truck during the action scenes. The body panels are straight, the battery is in good order and the engine bay is fairly tidy. The white convertible top sports a few minor blemishes. Inside, the car's black bucket seats are in very good condition, the matching carpet is in good order. The dash is in fair shape, with some cracking evident both on top and on some of the trim pieces. The three-spoke steering wheel is in fair condition while the door skins are missing some trim pieces. The mirrors are in good condition, the center console needs some attention and the shift lever is in good condition. The car has no radio. Like all Corvettes assembled between 1954 and 1981, this car was made at GM's St. Louis factory. Under the hood is a 327 CID Chevrolet V-8 buttoned to a four-speed manual transmission. For its third season, the 1965 Corvette Sting Ray further cleaned up style-wise. Styling alterations that year were subtle, confined to a smoothed-out hood now devoid of scoop indentations, a trio of working vertical exhaust vents in the front fenders that replaced the previous nonfunctional horizontal "speedlines," restyled wheel covers and rocker-panel moldings, and minor interior trim revisions. One of the Corvette's biggest features in 1965 came as four-wheel disc brakes were introduced. The brakes had a four-piston design with two-piece calipers and cooling fins for the rotors. Per pending federal regulations, there was also a dual master cylinder with separate fluid reservoirs (only on models with power brakes for 1965) for the front and rear lines. Road testers rightly applauded the all-disc brakes. Testers found that repeated stops from 100 mph produced no deterioration in braking efficiency and even the most sudden stops were rock-stable. So if you hanker to own a piece of recent Hollywood history, this is the car for you! Not many people can claim they own a classic Corvette that James T. Kirk once drove. This car is currently located at our facility in St. Louis, Missouri. Current mileage on the odometer shows 176 miles. It is sold as is, where is, on a clean and clear not actual mileage Arizona title. GET OUT AND DRIVE!!!
