The Gateway Classic Cars Showroom of Saint Louis is thrilled to offer this second-generation candy cane colored 1965 Chevrolet Corvette, which enjoyed a "frame-off" restoration back in 2000, which included a new interior upholstery and a new exterior paint job. BACKGROUND: The Four-wheel disc brakes were introduced in 1965, as was a "big block" engine option: the 396 cu in (6.49 L) V8. Side exhaust pipes were also optionally available in 1965 and continued to be offered through 1967. The introduction of the 425 bhp (317 kW) 396 cu in (6.49 L) big block in 1965 spelled the beginning of the end for the Rochester fuel injection system. (source: Wikipedia) This 1965 Corvette was built initially on December 4, 1964, restored thirty-six years later, and today the exterior still shines exceptionally well, and the interior does not look like anyone ever sat in them for extended periods of time. With its interior and exterior color combination, this second-generation Corvette is a head-turner, and one of the reasons you would strongly consider buying it. The quality of its condition is good enough to win car shows, but not so pristine that you would hesitate to drive it more frequently. There is no investment needed here. This classic beauty is plug & go and to drive from day one! We'll help you with shipping, but you may want to go ahead and drive this one home and down Old Route 66. Underneath the hood is a well-maintained, strong accelerating and smooth idling 327 that is backed by a four-speed manual transmission that won't disappoint. In short, you have every reason to inquire further about this 1965 Chevrolet Corvette by viewing it in greater detail, including HD pictures and an HD video of the car running and driving at our website - http://www.gatewayclassiccars.com.
