Motorcar Studio is pleased to offer this 1965 Chevrolet Corvette Sting Ray Convertible. Simply stunning in Nassau Blue over blue vinyl interior with a white soft top, this is a nicely restored example that never fails to turn heads. Attractive paint and body with excellent bumpers, trim, side pipes and glass. Knock-off wheels are very nice aftermarket replicas wearing period-correct Firestone bias-ply super sports.
Correct to the trim tag inside and out, interior shows well with good carpets, door panels, dash and seat upholstery. Gauges are clear and working with the exception of the clock. Gorgeous teakwood steering wheel. All lights and switches are working properly and the hideaway headlights have been converted from vacuum to electric motors for reliable operation.
Under the hood is the most potent small-block V8 Chevrolet offered outside of a fuelie -- a numbers-matching 327 / 365 hp L76 mated to a four-speed manual transmission. Runs well and pull strong throughout the rev range; clutch and gearbox feel great. Tidy and correct under the hood with original Holley 2818-1 four-barrel carburetor. Current collector-owner of more than five years recently undertook a full brake system overhaul and suspension refresh.
This C2 and drives exceptionally well and feels very "put together" -- we actually prefer the better feedback through the wheel of the non-power-steering cars (power steering was not available with the 365 hp engine option). And the factory four-wheel disc brakes provide excellent stopping authority even without power assist.
This Corvette is a thrill to drive -- looks great, runs great, sounds great -- and it would be a welcome addition to any collection. For more information about this 1965 Corvette for sale at Motorcar Studio in Atlanta, please call 404-692-5250.
