DESCRIPTION

This 1965 Chevrolet Corvette has its numbers-matching, fuel-injected V8. And 'Vette fans know this is the last year FI machine for almost two decades. That makes this sharply-presented coupe significant, rare, and absolutely cool.

Before we get into all of the hardware that already makes you know you love this Chevrolet, let's also take a moment to appreciate the details. The factory-correct Milano Maroon is one of our favorite colors, and they made a big investment in a modern clearcoat respray gives it a nice gloss in the sunshine. So you get the kind of vibrancy we love in red, especially with the shine this quality application brings. But there's also a more sophisticated overall tone, which is great for such a rare and distinguished car. After all, only 771 fuelies were made in this final year, and It gets harder to find properly presented ones over a half-century later. And you can see the level of respect in this one commands, right down to the details. It's in the way the headlights open smoothly, all the trim is bright and complete, and how the doors close with authority. Of course, while you're looking at the details, we know you're taking note of all the performance pieces that tell the world this one is special. Knock-off wheel, redline tires, and side pipes are the kind of things that make enthusiasts pay attention even before they see the crisp quality of the body.

For the same reason we like the bold but sophisticated maroon on the exterior, we absolutely love the maroon interior. And yes, this is finished in its factory supple leather! Great-looking door panels, a smooth dash, and plush maroon carpeting give this the feeling of an upper-class classic. This car is all about giving you the maximum correctness, and so you see it in the interior details, too. It has the little things you don't find in some others, like a working clock, the correct Delco AM/FM radio cranking out tunes, and even the correct jack in the rear storage box. Sitting in the driver's seat is an experience with the grippy three-spoke steering wheel that is truly worthy of a vintage sports car. Beyond that is a full set of gauges, including the large tach. And did you notice the redline number? It's an indication of something special under the hood.

While this is already a stellar Sting Ray, what makes this the star of every car show is its engine bay. Few people were willing to pay for the pricy L84 option that added Ram-Jet fuel injection. That means this 375 hp Sting Ray is a rare member of Corvette royalty. But what makes this motor irresistible is that it's the numbers-matching powerplant. It only gets better when paired with the four-speed manual transmission. That way you have full control over the power and the muscular soundtrack from those attention-grabbing side pipes. And speaking of control, this is the classic for people who love to drive. The Corvette was just beginning the big block era, but the high horsepower and lower weight of the 327ci FI cars provided an ideal balance. And when paired with a fully independent suspension, power steering, and four-wheel disc brakes, this is the vintage coupe that excels on the back roads.

Complete with owner's manual and car cover, this is the Sting Ray for those who love driving and showing their history. If you're a true collector, don't miss this opportunity. Call today!!!
