As Chevrolets first big block and only 396 powered Corvette, this awesome 1965 C2 roadster is a highly exclusive rarity which wraps a numbers matching drivetrain in one of the best color combinations in Corvette history. Originally sprayed in Milano Maroon, this slick C2 was recently restored in a glowing coat of bright red paint that looks simply stunning in person. Get up close and personal with the car and it becomes very obvious that its fiberglass body has been correctly prepped and sanded as there are no bonding seams visible from any angle and alignment is good all around. Further examination of the details reveals headlight doors that fit well, details that are crisp, a laser sharp crease that surrounds the entire body and aggressive shark fin fenders which show no signs of rounding from an overzealous sander. Tip the hood forward and youll find a 1965-exclusive L78 396 V8 which carries a 3855962 casting number and, according to its May (E) 26th (26) of 1965 (5) casting date, is original to the car. Introduced to combat higher horsepower muscle cars from competing automakers, Chevrolets High Performance 396 utilizes forged pop-top pistons, a steel crankshaft, a solid lifter cam, rectangular port closed chamber heads and 4-bolt main caps to create a stout 11 to 1 compression ratio and 425 horsepower. Behind the big block engine youll find an original Muncie 4-speed transmission which delivers the potent acceleration that Corvettes are famous for. And at the corners of the car, classic 15 inch turbine aluminum wheels wear authentic aluminum knock offs and a fresh set of 215/70 Firestone FR680 radials. The cars correct standard black vinyl interior contrasts its bright red exterior well and still looks extremely fresh.
