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

With Corvettes, you either get a car you shouldnt drive (matching numbers trailer queen) or a car that you cant resist driving. This 1965 Chevrolet Corvette roadster falls into the latter category, packing a period-correct 327, a 4-speed, side pipes, and a fantastic color combination. If want a Mid-Year Vette to drive, this 65 delivers with a more reasonable price tag. Finished in beautiful Nassau Blue paint, this Corvette roadster is one of those rare cars that can be driven and enjoyed while it appreciates as an investment. And now that Corvettes are grade-A collectables, even the driver-grade cars like this are going to be as safe as money in the bank. The fiberglass body is quite straight, with crisp body lines and doors that close with that unique Corvette sound. Two-stage urethane paint replicates the original hue, a handsome bright blue that was the most popular color in 1965. It shines up well and plays quite well on the C2s dramatic shape, with the finished product being the very definition of fun in the sun. Its not perfect and you wont want to park this one in a trailer, but for a car that begs to be driven, its exactly right. They didnt take any liberties with the car, either, so it wears a correct hood, reproduction badges, and brightly chromed bumpers that show well despite their age. Corvette stylists were hitting on all 8 cylinders when the Stingray was designed, so you get a well-detailed interior thats uniquely American with a lot of European influences. The black bucket seats wear reproduction seat covers that match the originals and they have a somewhat inviting look that isnt perfect but isnt worn out, either. Replacement carpets and door panels help add to the consistent feeling inside, and there are great-looking analog gauges in the instrument panel. Again, there are no modifications to distract you from the authentic feel of a vintage Vette, but a new radio might be a wise investment (the original radio is there but it is sadly not operational). Theres a white convertible top that fits so well we were almost afraid to put it down, and the rear window isnt cloudy or cracked. Driver grade isnt a bad thing when it looks this good and works this well. Numbers matching is critical on an investment-grade Corvette, but it isnt mandatory if you want to drive. The L75 327/300 under the hood is a date-code-correct 1965 327 rebuilt to stock specs and ready to hit the road. Correct Chevy Orange paint covers all the engine surfaces, and they resisted the urge to upgrade it along the way. A chrome air cleaner lid, beautiful finned valve covers, and a factory-style alternator add authenticity, but theres no denying the appeal is in how it runs. Rams horn exhaust manifolds lead to those cackling side pipes and the rest of the chassis is in good order, although not detailed for show. Up close youll see factory power steering and a Muncie 4-speed transmission, so it drives even better than it looks, and with 1965 being the first year for 4-wheel disc brakes, its extremely competent out on the road. Pretty knock-off wheels with spinners look awesome on any C3 Corvette and they wear 7.75-15 bias-ply whitewalls for a correct look. Still modestly priced, this 1965 Corvette roadster is a car you can still show with pride, drive with a big grin on your face, and it will always be worth at least what youve spent on it.
