Description for Chevrolet Corvette 1965

There's something special about a big block 1965 Chevrolet Corvette. This is the first year for the now legendary upgrade that turns these light fiberglass sports cars into competition monsters. But despite the beastly sounds from the 396 V8 and four-speed, this Sting Ray can still be quite tame thanks to its subtle factory-correct blue on white combo.Nassau Blue is this car's original color, and it looks great on a Sting Ray. Like the hue's namesake, it's bright and sunny with a hint of paradise. On the C2 Corvette's instantly recognizable curves, it looks fabulous. Of course it only helps that the original color has been reapplied to fiberglass that surpasses the factory standards. There was an investment here in getting this coupe to look great, and it's apparent the moment you take it out in the sunshine. The light will perfectly accent everything from the big block's bulging hood, to the more understated touches like the creased lines that run down the rear design. And of course, the sunlight will make the complete and clean chrome sparkle, too from the thin bumpers, to the cursive Corvette script on the rear. Finishing off the iconic C2's premium appearance is the iconic knock-off wheels.Inside, a white vinyl interior is exactly what you want to see. After all the pristine color is a lot of fun to show off, but you also want it easy to keep clean, too. The C2 interior is always a favorite with the now-iconic dual cowl design that's as much a part of the motoring experience as the hum of the engine or rumble of the exhaust. Your left hand will love the woodgrained steering wheel, and your right one may never want to leave the chrome gearshift. All the gauges show crisp markings that let you keep an eye on the engine's status. A factory AM/FM radio lives in the center stack, but there's also an auxiliary/iPod hookup if you want the most modern music in this classic. Speaking of a modern/vintage combo, the air conditioning is now running R-134a for easy servicing.It's hard not to get excited when you open the clamshell hood and see a big block. The 396 cubic-inch V8 is what made '65 a legendary year in Corvette history. But what you really care about is how this big motor fires up with ease, and the sound of the ferocious growl that radiates from the ultra-cool side pipes. The four-speed manual transmission gives you full control over the monster motor, and out on the road, it has the kind of experience that reminds you why this is America's true sports car. But the full package is more than just brute force. Power steering, a fully independent suspension, four-wheel disc brakes, and modern BF Goodrich Touring T/A tires all make this classic Corvette a true pleasure to drive.Complete with owner's manual and memorabilia, this coupe celebrates the birth of the big block Corvette in all the best ways. Don't let this complete and well-sorted Sting Ray slip away. Call today!!!
