Preview: Unveiling an icon of American automotive excellence, the 1965 Chevrolet Corvette Red Roadster—a true embodiment of power, style, and heritage. With its vibrant red exterior, black interior, and white convertible top, this Corvette exudes timeless allure. Beneath its sleek exterior lies a Numbers Matching 327-300 horse engine, paired with a 4-speed transmission, ensuring an exhilarating driving experience. Adorned with correct Hub Caps, white wall tires, and distinctive side pipes, this Corvette commands attention on any road. Restored a decade ago, every detail has been well preserved, from the chrome accents to the luxurious interior. 

 

 

Exterior: The styling changes on our 1965 Sting Ray are beautiful and ours is restored and re-painted with its bright red paint job flowing over the hood and louvers behind the front wheels that help increase air flow through the engine compartment, giving it both an aggressive and sophisticated look. All the emblems, the bumpers and taillights, door handles, the flip-up gas cap, and the white convertible top remain in great condition as well as the correct Hub Caps with white wall tires which give it a great ride with superior handling.

 

 

Interior: This Sting Ray offers a completely luxurious driving environment. For 1965, the interior features new trim of durable expanded vinyl with a more subtle texture of black and has individual twin bucket-type seats that have a factory bolster-like design for more seating comfort and better lateral support. The black theme extends to the black carpet and matching door panels, dual sun visors, controls for the heater and defroster located on the central console along with chrome 4-speed shifter and the electrical clock and radio controls and vent controls that are located under the instrument panel on each side of the steering column. In the dash is a matched speedometer and tachometer are the primary instruments in the Sting Ray with a re-settable trip odometer, head-light switch, radio, head-lamp retractor switch, hood release, and four-position ignition switch to complete the instrument panel with the great wood steering wheel also.

 

 

Mechanical: This Corvette just exudes originality and Corvette small block performance from the minute you open the hood and see the very original and Numbers Matching 327-300 horse engine with a 4-speed transmission. This engine gives quick around-town performance and cruises at highway speeds at no more than an easy loaf. Those 327’s back then had new cylinder heads with bigger inlet valves, used hydraulic valve lifters, wedge-type combustion chambers, long-life rams head cast iron exhaust manifolds, dual exhaust system, and a 4-barrel carb. This has the chrome open air cleaner, orange painted factory valve covers, orange painted block, chrome distributor shielding, H.D. radiator, and backed by a Muncie 4-speed and a nice chassis with all the great parts while riding on steel wheels with the correct Hub Caps and white wall tires, Side pipes, and was completely Restored 10 years ago.
