An outstanding restoration to an exceptionally rare color is the headline of this 1965 Chevrolet Corvette. But don't forget to check out the huge big block power, four-speed stick-shift, supple interior, and much more that make this a serious driver's classic.
This might look black in some pictures, but you're really looking at a deep, dark hue known as Glen Green. Corvette people know it was only available in '65, and so you're are instantly in exclusive company with less than 3,800 examples produced. So it's no wonder there was a big investment in properly respraying this special color. Plus, the modern clearcoat shine really highlights the crisp condition of this well-creased Sting Ray body. This dark color also makes the complete and clean chrome really standout, too – from the thin bumpers, to the cursive Corvette script on the rear. And more than just look terrific, this has a huge intimidation factor with the big block's bulging hood, genuine knock-off wheels, and competition-inspired side pipes.
It's hard to think of a more attractive interior on a deep green car than a deep black inside. It looks great thanks to complete door panels, a new headliner, and supple leather bucket seats. The atmosphere is quite authentic with all the right classic pieces like the heat/defrost controls, clock, and AM/FM radio. Your left hand grabs the three-spoke wood rim sports steering wheel, and beyond that is the full gauge set with large speedometer and very useful tachometer. But your right hand gets the real treat. The stick-shift was the correct choice for your Corvette if you love to drive. Plus, there's just something cool about grabbing the big chrome leaver housed in the original chrome console.
You're going to love showing off the engine bay. After all, there were big block Corvettes in this era, but none were as massive as this. The restoration included an upgrade to a 502 cubic-inch V8. It's ready to show off this enhancement with plenty of polished components and valve covers that announce the huge displacement. This crate motor fires up with ease, and it gives extra growl to the ferocious sound that radiates from the ultra-cool side pipes. The four-speed manual transmission gives you full control over the monster motor, and out on the road, it lets you fully experience the power that reminds you why this is America's true sports car. But the full package is more than just brute force. A fully independent suspension, four-wheel disc brakes, and modern Goodyear Assurance tires all make this classic Corvette a true pleasure to drive.
Complete with owner's manual and restoration photos, this is the distinctive Sting Ray with a greatly enhanced heart. Don't let something this special slip away, call today!
