NASSAU BLUE, STRONG 454 V8, 4 SPD, NEW INTERIOR, SUPER NICE, GREAT UPGRADES!
You know the 1965 Chevrolet Corvette was the first year for the big block V8, and this one carries an even bigger surprise under the hood. But more than just a motor, this blue-on-blue convertible is a beautifully restored 'Vette with all the right features you love for both showing off and taking on the backroads.
This one has been give a profession respray in Corvette's Nassau Blue. The high gloss of the more modern paint adds an interesting high profile twist on this traditionally conservatively fashionable color. Of course this shine is only amplified on fiberglass that has been properly taken care of, and that's why the all-important creases in the C2 design are sharp enough to give you a paper cut. While this is one of the most iconic American car designs ever, it's that singer hood is what let everyone know you were the top dog in '65. But there's also plenty of brightwork in this deep blue sea. Everyone loves to see the two-piece front and rear chrome bumpers in this pristine of a condition. Plus, the staggered sizes on the modern ARE Special Edition shiny wheels give this Sting Ray a unique and aggressive stance.
Inside it feels like 1965 all over again because everything in new. That's right, this car has a totally brand new, show quality interior right down to a new gauge cluster and even a brand new clock! The blue theme continues with great leather bucket seats, fresh door panels, and thick carpet with no wear marks. In fact, the only time blue is not used is on the pristinely white folding roof! Corvettes are about being performance machines that keep the driver comfortable and in control. That's why your left hand rests on the three-spoke woodgrained steering wheel, and your right one falls perfectly onto the gearshift. Because the interior was completely overhauled you don't have to worry about the instruments. Everything works as it should, even the little items like the AM/FM radio and the clock.
Open the clamshell hood and the chrome air cleaner tells you exactly what you're looking at. This is one Bad Bow Tie! We all know the 454 cubic-inch V8 wasn't available in 1965, but this one had the biggest of the big blocks installed to make it the ultimate intimidator. It's also been upgraded with performance components so it can inhale deeply through a four-barrel carburetor and Edelbrock intake. Then the V8 exhales with serious authority through long tube headers on its way to the Flowmaster dual exhaust. You can keep this monster motor in the powerband as long as you want thanks to the four-speed manual transmission, and power take-offs are easy thanks to the 4.11 rear end. But more than just getting power to the ground, this one keep you in control with power steering, four-wheel disc brakes, and grippy modern Nitto performance tires.
Astoundingly well built, easy to drive, and insanely fast, this 1965 Corvette updates just about everything without losing any of the elements that make mid-year Corvettes so wonderful. Call today!!!
