 Vehicle Description
1965 Corvettes are perhaps the biggest bargain of the mid-year period. Theyre not quite the iconic and uber-expensive 63s, yet they have all the upgrades that Corvettes were always known for, most notably 4-wheel disc brakes, and with a small block and 4-speed gearbox, this one can pretty much run with the big dogs that would come a few years later. Obviously, if you like driving your Corvette, this handsome convertible represents tremendous bang for the buck.br / br / If you drive any mid-year Corvette, especially a convertible, youre going to get noticed. Subject to a cosmetic freshening several years ago, this one remains in good condition thats what most folks would consider a nice driver. The fiberglass prep was well-done, and while to the judges a flawed Corvette is a perfect Corvette, this one has no such pretensions. The surface was sanded until it was smooth and flat, the gaps were expertly aligned, and the finish is two-stage urethane that while older, still shines up quite nicely after a full professional cut and buff. Its clear that this Vette was built to be enjoyed and driven while drawing plenty of attention, which it does so exceedingly well. In addition, all the chrome is likely original but still shines up fairly well, the stainless looks like it could spend a little more time with a buffing wheel, and the shiny rocker trim finished the look.br / br / The black vinyl interior is a great combination of original and restored parts, all working together to make this Corvette a great place to spend some time. The seat covers are correct and these seats are some of the most inviting buckets weve seen in a long time; theyre just begging you to slide behind the wheel, arent they? The gauges have bright faces and the lenses are clear, and they all work like they should. Plush carpets add to the factory feeling, and the door panels may very well be original and aside from a few signs of use here and there, everything inside is in great condition. The radio is a modern retro-style AM/FM/AUX unit with that unique vertical orientation, and theres a woodgrained steering wheel that could very well be original as well. A recent black vinyl convertible top fits well and provides great contrast, although youll probably never see it again after you get this car home.br / br / Shes no slouch under the hood, either. The block is a 327 cubic inch V8 that makes plenty of power to be entertaining on the road. Painted in Chevy Orange enamel, it certainly looks right under that Kamp;N chrome air cleaner and a pair of gorgeous finned valve covers with 327 badges, and while its not necessarily detailed for show, you can see plenty of evidence of proper maintenance over the years and newer components like the modern alternator and A/C compressor. Theres nothing like a cackling small block and just listening to this one idle is a treat, never mind winding it through the all four gears. Rams horn exhaust manifolds feed a dual exhaust system with Glasspack-style mufflers, and the giant aluminum radiator up front keeps the whole show cool. The 4-speed manual transmission puts a smile on your face and bangs through gears with ease, and out back the stock-style rear end and gear set-up make it street friendly no matter what youre doing. Four-wheel discs were new in 65 and much welcome given the cars performance, and it rides on pretty turbine wheels with center spinners, all wrapped in 215/75/15 whitewall radials that finish the look.br / br / Built to drive, this 65 Corvette offers all the great looks of the C2 with strong small block power and a top that goes down, all at a very reasonable price.
