Welcome to Street Dreams in Texas as we cruise into our 18th year in the classic and muscle car business. Of all Corvettes produced over the last 64 years the mid-year Sting Rays (1963-1967) remain the most popular and collectible of the breed. It has become increasingly rare to see these beautiful cars on the road as their owners are often unwilling to risk damage to an $80,000 numbers-matching investment. This stunning Ermine White (cc) 1965 Sting Ray is the perfect solution to that problem. What we have here is a gorgeous show-quality car with a newer, more efficient, and more reliable powertrain. During a frame-off restoration when all the parts were either repaired or replaced, the powertrain was replaced with a Tuned Port Injected 305 V8 (LB9) from a 1989 Trans Am that's connected to a 700R4 automatic overdrive transmission. A 3.36:1 rear axle ratio paired with the overdrive transmission provides efficient and very relaxed highway cruising. This is an almost unbelievably effective combination in this light-weight application with plenty of thrust, good economy, and heavenly sounds from the side pipes. Other desirable features include the beautiful and correct maroon leather (436BA) upholstery, Teakwood steering wheel, power steering, air conditioning, original AM/FM radio with modern stereo in glovebox, classic instruments gauges, bolt-on knock-off wheels, and side mounted exhaust. A positively stunning Sting Ray that's as easy to drive as it is to look at! Street Dreams is a full service dealership that can assist with worldwide delivery, insurance, and financing options.
