This 1965 Corvette represents an amazing confluence of features and is among the rarest of all small block Sting Rays. With a matching numbers 327/365 under the hood a 4-speed and factory A/C it is one of only 227 ever built and 1964 and '65 were the only years GM permitted a high-revving solid lifter engine to carry an A/C compressor. Add in some wonderful options the beautiful Glen Green over Saddle color combination and you have one of the most desirable Corvette coupes of the 1960s. Glen Green was the second most popular color in 1965 and it's easy to see why. It is both sophisticated and aggressive being a favored color for years by racers from the British Isles. With just one repaint in its history this stunning Sting Ray still looks great today. Never hit the fiberglass is straight and clean and the workmanship is first-rate throughout. It offers a lovely gloss nicely aligned panels and none of that over-restored look that so many cars show today. Instead it looks authentic just the way your new Corvette would have looked on the showroom floor in 1965. Those slender chrome bumpers the bright rocker moldings and all the emblems are in excellent condition and it's safe to say that this is most definitely a wolf in sheep's clothing. Combined with the dark green paint the Saddle interior is ideal giving the Corvette some old world charm and a timeless look that will never go out of fashion. The seats are in beautiful condition with no splits or tears and only the most minor wear. Matching carpets were installed when the car was restored and the door panels are like new. Crisply restored gauges keep an eye on the high-revving small block under the hood and yes the factory A/C is intact and fully functional. Other cool options include a teakwood steering wheel on a telescoping column an AM/FM radio with power antenna and power brakes. The car's true calling card lies under the hood. That is the original L76 327/365 horsepower V8 fully rebuilt and cackling like Satan's own offspring. The engine bay has been detailed from Chevy Orange paint on the engine to the lovely cast aluminum valve covers. The components throughout the engine bay and chassis are correctly date-coded and factory markings have been accurately replicated. This is also a factory 4-speed car and carries its original Muncie transmission and rear end. Four-wheel disc brakes also became standard in 1965 making it one of the best driving C2 Corvettes you can own. The chassis is clean but not over-detailed so you can enjoy this car in its natural environment instead of being forced to tuck it away in a trailer every time you take it out of the garage. Beautiful reproduction knock-off wheels wear appropriate gold stripe radials that complete the vintage look and maintain this Corvette's sophisticated air. Fast rare and handsome this amazing Corvette is a blue-chip investment that you can drive and enjoy. This vehicle is located in our Charlotte showroom.
