Now for sale in our Houston Showroom is this beautiful 1965 Chevrolet Corvette. 1965 was the year 4-wheel disc brakes were introduced to the C2 Corvette. This car has a very nice Rally Red paint that is in great condition. The car is powered by a rebuilt 327 CID V8 to L79 specs. Listening to it idle is a treat, never mind winding it through all four gears. The completely rebuilt 4-speed Muncie M20 transmission sends the twist to a set of 3.36 gears with a PosiTrac differential. The 3.36 ratio provides both highway friendliness and good torque multiplication, making this Vette very street friendly and peppy to drive. Both the engine & the transmission were rebuilt a little over 8k miles ago. The four-wheel disc brakes really improve its stopping distances, too. This Corvette rides on classic period-correct "knock-off" style aluminum wheels that are wrapped in fairly new 205/70/14 black wall radials. The car has been subjected to an exhaustive cosmetic and mechanical restoration. The fiberglass prep was expertly done with the surfaces sanded to near perfection. The gaps were expertly aligned and the Rally Red paint was finished with a two-stage urethane. In addition, all the chrome was restored, the stainless spent time with a buffing wheel, and the shiny rocker trim looks new. A bright white convertible top was installed in January 2017. The interior of the car is in great condition and ready for a new owner to get behind the wheel. The black vinyl seats are in like new condition and have very little wear.
