The Most Desirable Corvette Ever?

The 1967 Corvette is considered the most-loved Corvette ever produced. The combination of classic C2 styling, along with an incredible array of powertrain and comfort options, makes it one of the most desirable Corvettes ever. Not bad for a car that was never supposed to be made!


The ZR-1's production run from 1990-95 was one of the most exciting times for Corvette enthusiasts in recent memory. In the mid-1980s, rumors of a "King of the Hill" Corvette began to leak out of Detroit and into America's speed shops and dealerships.


Classic Car Overview

This 1965 Chevrolet Corvette convertible has its numbers-matching, fuel-injected V8. And Vette fans know this is the last year FI machine for almost two decades. That makes this well-presented example significant, rare, and absolutely cool. Before we get into all of the hardware that will make you drool over this Chevrolet, take a moment to appreciate the details. The factory-correct Nassau Blue is one of our favorite colors for a convertible, and a modern clearcoat respray gives it a nice gloss in the sunshine. So the paint lives up to its tropical name, which will make you feel like cruising the beach road. And the bright white convertible top gives this whole package the appeal of a cresting ocean wave. Only 771 fuelies were made in this final year, and so you want a car that has been treated with respect. So pay attention to how the headlights open smoothly, all the trim is bright and complete, and how the doors close with authority on this example. Inside, theres a deep black on the carpets, bucket seats, and dash. The rest of the interior is also factory-correct from the AM/FM radio to the heat/defrost controls... even the clock is still ticking away. Sitting in the drivers seat is an experience with the grippy three-spoke steering wheel that is truly worthy of a vintage sports car. Beyond that is a full set of gauges, including the large tach. And did you notice the redline number? Its an indication of something special under the hood. While this is already a stellar Sting Ray, what makes this the star of every car show is its engine bay. Few people were willing to pay for the pricy L84 option that added Ram-Jet fuel injection. That means this 375 hp Sting Ray a rare member of Corvette royalty. But what makes this motor irresistible is that its the exact powerplant this convertible had when it left the St. Louis factory over a half-century years ago. It only gets better when paired with the Muncie M20 four-speed manual transmission. That way you have full control over the power and the muscular soundtrack from those attention-grabbing sidepipes. And speaking of control, this is the classic for people who love to drive. The Corvette was just beginning the big block era, but the high horsepower and lower weight of the 327ci FI cars provided an ideal balance out on the road. And when paired with a fully independent suspension and four-wheel disc brakes, this is the vintage convertible that excels on the back roads. Complete with owners manual, this is the Sting Ray for those who love driving their history. If youre a true collector, dont miss this opportunity. Call today!!!
