1965 Chevrolet Corvette ConvertibleThis 1965 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible has been restored to look both crisp and speedy. So you'll love everything from the excellent chrome to the five-speed upgrade. In fact, you'll want to dig into all the details because this one is the right mix of sophistication and intimidation.
Goldwood Yellow is a great factory-correct color to have. Not only was it only offered for a couple of years, but also it was one of the rarest applied to the '65 Corvette. This one has a fantastic look that radiates in the sunshine - exactly what you want on a convertible. It's the product of a well-done restoration. Plus, you get to choose two distinct ways to motor with this C2. The newer black folding roof has a timeless look against the yellow, and the well-fitting color-matched hardtop gives you a coupe-like profile. But the investments here were not just about getting the paint and the chrome to better than factory standards. This one is also about looking speedy. Your eyes are immediately drawn to the upgraded alloys wheels, and the rear fender got a Grand Sport style flaring to accommodate the extra meaty rear rubber. And of course, side pipes are always a powerful way to announce you've arrived.
The black interior looks great against the yellow paint, and so you can really enjoy open-top motoring. The full restoration meant a solid investment here to get the dash, carpeting, door panels, and seats all looking and feeling nice. Plus, it has some nice comfort features, like an AM/FM radio, telescopic steering column, power steering, and added cup holders. The wood-rimmed steering wheel feels grippy in your hands, the full gauge package is working correctly (including the clock), and have you counted the gears on the stick shift yet?
The engine bay has a nice classic look with the Corvette script valve covers, pie dish air topper, and even correct details, like the AC fuel filter. So it's great to have what's believed to be the original 327 cubic-inch block still under the hood. This motor was rebuilt during the restoration, and that included some nice upgrades like Dart aluminum heads. The V8 inhales deeply through the correct Holley four-barrel carburetor, and it exhales with authority out of the side pipes. And you control this power and rumbling soundtrack better than the factory car ever could thanks to the upgrade to a Tremec five-speed manual transmission. Plus, the fully independent suspension and four-wheel disc brakes really let you enjoy this enhanced powertrain package to the fullest.
The sale comes complete with build receipts, service manuals, and a car cover. Stick-shift droptop C2s are always in demand, but one that's been upgraded like this is an all-around irresistible winner. Don't miss out, call today!!!
