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 For consignment, a tribute to those legendary racing Corvettes with some exterior cues that immediately get your attention. This 1965 Corvette convertible will set you apart at car shows and Corvette gatherings. Whats also grand about this sports car is that it is completely street-able and usable...and provides you with some interesting choices...put it up on a rotisserie and bring it to NCRS standards or leave it as is and drive the heck out of it! Exterior Why not start on the outside where some of the visual goodies reside! Very close to the factory Milano Maroon hue, the paint presents very nicely and is not over the top glossy . This original look is trending as two- and three-stage paint processes dominate the hobby to the point where original is now a standout. To save weight and complication, the race cars often did away with the flip up headlights and replaced the door with a plexiglass cover, and thats what we have here. The exposed lights are square and give this Corvette an instantly recognizable look. But wait...theres more! The chrome front bumper is gone, exposing a gaping grille that captures as much air as possible to cool an engine during a long race. A huge chin spoiler scoops extra air from ground level and sends it northward to the grille. The hood scoop is functional feeding even more air into the visible pleated filter under the hood. Moving back, we see a soft top in excellent condition, leading to a smooth trunk lid. In back, we see three taillights on each side one more than mere mortal Corvettes...and mimicking some of the race cars including Philadelphias own GS #002. Chevrolet rally wheels , in 15-inch format, occupy each corner and provide a more aggressive stance with bigger tires. Other exterior notables include flared rear fenders, the Stingray gills, and a front clip that lifts as one piece to give full access to the engine and front suspension. That feature alone will have Vette guys clamoring around your car! Interior Pretty standard fare here...and that means classic Corvette! Comfortable bucket seats surround a 4-speed manual shifter. Its an aftermarket shifter and likely a Hurst as the boot indicates. Gauges are crisp and clear and easy to read, shaded by the emblematic dash pad that provides a massive arched hood. This eyebrow is repeated on the passenger side hovering over the glove box. All buttons and switches are in place and the black carpet is in good condition. Overall, the interior shows usage and wouldnt take much to restore to show-like conditions. Meanwhile, the door cards are show ready! Looking fresh and clean, cranks are available for the window and for the vent, (some call it the cigarette window ). Theres a cool little shift knob to open the door within the padded and tucked panel of the door card and towards the back...a turning dial to lock the door. Its likely the manual controls of this car would blow the minds of Gen Zers, but its a glorious testament to functional interiors without electronic assistance. Drivetrain Pivot the front clip forward on the hinge and there youll have a full view of the 327ci small block gleaming in Chevy orange paint that still looks wet! Even the exhaust manifolds look factory fresh. Chrome envelopes the aftermarket coil, the oil fill cap, and the air filter. Everything else is in driver condition meaning you can cruise down the road worry-free about a flake of dust landing on the engine...and without fender liners, its entirely likely...so drive it, man! And if you want to wipe it off, the access is like no other car...you can practically walk into the engine bay! A circa 1969 Muncie M21 4-speed manual transmission takes the power handoff from the engine and throws it rearward to a 3.08 Positraction rear axle. Undercarriage Original and unrestored are the buzzwords down below. All structurally sound and coated with some surface rust and patina. Exhaust manifolds lead to piping which is quickly routed away from the engine and continues the length of the car, terminating at two large mufflers and existing exquisitely from the rear panel below the bumper with chrome tips. 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 The simple systems of a mid-60s car often make for an easy drive....no mess, no fuss. Start her up and she purrs like a kitten. Put it into gear and it works like a charm. The horsepower is nothing to sneeze at...even in 2024...and this ride does not disappoint with good power, great acceleration, and more than adequate stopping power. The fat tires provide good stability and improved handling. Exterior enhancements really give this 65 presence and its user-friendly condition make it a joy to drive, (and eventually own), without the worry youd have with a concours-level car. That said, this also provides a great start to a full restoration if thats the road you want to take. Whatever road youre on, youll undoubtedly be wearing a smile. 194675S119180 1-Chevrolet 94-Corvette 67-Convertible 5-1965 S-St. Louis, MO Assy Plant 119180-Sequential Unit Number TRIM TAG K4-4th Week June STYLE 65 467-1965 Corvette Convertible BODY S6238-St. Louis Body # TRIM 414BA-Blue Vinyl PAINT 900FF-Nassau Blue
