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!

Classic Car Overview

1965 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible It is unwise to just tinker with an American classic like the Corvette Sting Ray. Changes should be meaningful. This fine road machine was and still is Americas only true sports car. So, for 1965, the Sting Ray underwent subtle refinements in styling that only enhanced its unique looks and performance, always a basic measure of Sting Rays appeal. A new street engine developing 350 horsepower answers most enthusiasts needs for traffic and highway driving. For consignment, a 1965 Bowtie warship, (Corvette), with a later model V8, red fiberglass, nice black interior and a white convertible top in presentable condition. Side-pipes, knockoff turbine style wheels, front quarter air vents (shark gills) and all restored to good condition, and we now have a classic for your driveway and ultimate enjoyment. Turn the key and be off! Exterior Red painted fiberglass showing some areas of distress mini fractures throughout can be seen if you look very closely and very noticeable areas of repair on the nose and top of the drivers fender. With the split wrap around bumpers, hidden headlights, newly designed grille and a hint of a stinger on the hood, the design for the front of this car is meant to slice through the air. A chromed trimmed windshield surround, and sleek rear of this car with more split wrap around bumpers and round taillights. These year Vettes really had the shark/stingray look. A lightly soiled white canvas top in convertible form is atop, and sports a hazed plastic rear window, as well as moves up and down with ease. All this aero art form sits upon 15-inch turbine style knockoff hubs and all wrapped up in raised white letter rubber to complete the look. Interior Supple black vinyl covers the bomber style low back buckets, presenting with a split seam on the drivers lower cushion, that have a center console racing past them and up to the dash it goes. Here it ascends skyward housing the vertically mounted AM/FM/Cassette radio, and temp control knobs with a large chronograph clock in the center. From here the dash spreads out using 2 eyebrow arched panels, the drivers side housing the gauge and knob cluster, and the passenger side the brushed aluminum panel glovebox. Black padded vinyl covers the dash top eyebrows and is all in excellent condition. A teak wood steering wheel fronts this clean and mean dash and adds a touch of warmth to the overall interior. Speaking of warmth, very nice black carpeting is flooding the floors, and a shout out to the door panels which are also near perfection with their molded plastic and chrome trimmings with chromed cranks, actuator and pulls. Behind the passengers a flip up tonneau red fiberglass hinged panel covers not only the top in the down position, but also a faded black carpeted storage area with aftermarket speakers added. Drivetrain Under the flip forward hood is an example of machined art with a full metal jacket 350ci V8 circa 1969-1979. This is looking fine with polished aluminum valve covers, a single 4-barrel carburetor underneath the chromed air cleaner cover, and the mixture is sent through a dull polished intake manifold. Only a light patina is noted on this otherwise clean and functional engine bay. On back is a Muncie M20 4-speed manual transmission which carries a correct casting number for the car but is missing its production and VIN stamps. An AO 52466, (3.70 geared Positraction rear axle assembled May 24th 1966), rear axle puts the power to the pavement. Undercarriage Original and unrestored are the buzzwords down below. All structurally sound and coated with surface rust and patina. Headers snake down from the engine and the piping is quickly routed away from the engine to either side taking a sharp turn to the outside for the side pipes. We note the drivers chambered muffler and piping is hanging down below the pipe guard and should be remedied. Disc brakes are on all 4 corners and an independent coil spring front suspension is complemented by a frame anchored fully independent rear suspension with transverse leaf springs. Drive-Ability In need of a new battery and cables we were able to get this shark fired up with the help of a jump box. Once powered it was a super quick starter, settled into a smooth idle and upon the press of the accelerator, a quick response to move forward, so it was off to the test track. Here it handled like it was on rails, had bias free panic stopping, and fantastic acceleration from that all buttoned up 350ci power plant. I noticed the radio was inoperable but all else was working. A fine example of the 1965 Convertible Corvette that you dont have to be afraid to enjoy and drive. The right red, the right top (convertible) and the right engine (350/4bbl), and on the prowl for its next victim. When the shark bites....
