Of all the Corvette generations, the second was the shortest lived. Introduced in 1963 as the Sting Ray, its radical new styling was well-received by all and its rigidity had improved dramatically with an all-new steel frame and fully independent suspension. Its signature fiberglass body was still a major part of its construction and the exciting news was that for the first time the Corvette was available as a coupe. The split window coupe of 1963 lasted for only one year and the C2 Corvette itself would carry on only to 1967. It was hard to find anyone that didn’t like the Sting Ray design and Chevrolet knew it. In the entire C2’s tenure, Chevrolet never radically redesigned its appearance, as most of the development came in the form of drivetrain options that pushed performance to unheard of heights, but the C2 generation featured some of the most exciting Corvettes ever built. Whether it was a coupe or convertible, the second-generation Corvette stood ready to deliver a great driving experience.

Offered here is an eye-catching rendition of this iconic car, a 1965 Corvette roadster that was recently painted. Finished in Chevrolet’s Rally Red, it carries all the fine styling attributes that the second-generation Corvette is known for and carries a few upgrades that make it just a bit different from the average Corvette. Styling for the 1965 Corvette featured three chevron-styled side vents, split bumpers, and flip up headlights that gave the front end a super aerodynamic shape when hidden away. Chevrolet’s 1965 Corvette rode on a wheelbase that was actually smaller than its first-generation cousin. This Corvette was recently treated to a new convertible top that’s nicely fitted. The interior is finished in a two-tone black and white with the dashboard and carpets in black and the seats and door panels in white. Seat belts have also been fitted in the interest of safety and the center console houses an optional radio. All gauges are in good order and this Corvette is also fitted with Chevrolet’s optional Teakwood steering, a $43.05 option for 1965. This Corvette’s impressive appearance is further enhanced by a hood that was available with the big-block V-8 but can be fitted on any C2 Corvette. This Corvette is powered by Chevrolet's tried and true 350 cubic-inch V-8 and is mated to a four-speed manual transmission. The engine has been recently tuned and is ready for touring of any distance. The sound that emanates from its dual exhaust is something only a Corvette has and is especially pleasing while driving with the top down. This Corvette’s appearance is also nicely enhanced by a set of GM Rally rims with wide whitewall tires for an aggressive performance look. For sheer driving pleasure, this is a Corvette that is more than ready for the open road and offers reliability while clearly displaying the wonderful lines that makes the Corvette “America’s Sweetheart.”

This is a car that has found its place both on the world stage and in the hearts of performance minded motorists everywhere. Pure power in a lightweight car that handles like a dream is the secret of the Corvette’s success and that dream comes to life every time the key is turned on in this 1965 convertible. Reliable power in a Corvette that has been tweaked both in appearance and performance offers a ride that’s pure enjoyment. For a great driving Corvette that’s both fun and reliable, this is a car that doesn’t disappoint.
