454 CID V8 NOM - 4BBL - 4 Speed Manual - 4 Wheel Disc Brakes - Southern History

This 1965 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible is a fun to drive, mild custom with southern history. The third iteration of the second generation, "C2" Corvette debuted in 1965. Chevrolet made only minor stylistic changes including three new functional vertical louvers located behind the front wheels on the front fenders, a new blacked out horizontal bar grille, and updated bright aluminum rocker panel moldings. Keeping up with their "True American Sports Car" theme for the Corvette, the most significant changes to the '65 Corvette were new performance-oriented options. Most significantly, Chevrolet's big block was introduced in mid-March 1965 to the Corvette in the form of a 396 V8 and 4 wheel "Sport-Master" disc brakes became standard equipment across every Corvette model. The new side louvers were also performance focused because they improved air flow (and thus cooling) in the engine compartment. The plush interiors for the '65 Corvettes were also updated in 1965 including newly redesigned seats and door panels and the instrument cluster was now painted flat black. This particular Corvette Convertible comes to us from a southern-based collector who clearly enjoyed taking this baby out for some muscle car exercise. Powering this '65 Corvette is an upgraded 454 Cubic Inch V8 paired with a single 4 barrel carburetor that together provide plenty of power. The NOM 454 Big Block V8 is hooked up to a 4 speed manual transmission that makes this Convertible an absolute blast to drive. Dual exhaust gives this Chevy a nice throaty sound. Riding on 4 whitewall radial tires with standard spinner wheel covers, this 65 'Vette has a fantastic look and an even better ride. Like nearly all Corvettes back in 1965, this particular car features 4 wheel disc brakes which provide improved stopping power given all that extra muscle under the hood. The white vinyl convertible soft top is manually operated and is in fantastic condition. The fiberglass body on this classic Corvette has been beautifully refinished in Glen Green which gives this car an elevated exterior look. The interior of this '65 Corvette is absolutely beautiful! The bucket seats have been reupholstered in a beautiful Saddle Leather further adding to the luxurious look and feel of the car. The dash, door panels, and woodgrain steering wheel are all in fantastic condition and appear to be in their stock configuration. The instrument cluster has a cockpit look and is equipped with a 160 MPH speedometer, 7,000 RPM tachometer, temperature gauge, oil pressure gauge, amp gauge, and fuel gauge. Also incorporated into the dash of this Corvette is an AM radio and clock. Whether you're looking for your very first classic car or you'll be parking this 'Vette in your existing fleet of Sting Rays, this 1965 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible would be an excellent addition.
