Ermine White w/Black interior, 327/375hp, 4-spd. manual transmission.
Mid-Year Corvette’s tend to attract a lot of attention when they’re out on the road. The design is simply timeless and even if you’re not a “car person”, anyone would appreciate the beauty of one of these classics. But, even in the realm of second generation Corvette’s, there are stand-out’s. And one of them is the car presented here.
In a way, the introduction of the ’65 model marked the end of one era and the beginning of another. Mechanical fuel injection was introduced on Corvette in ’57 and was considered “exotic” back in the day. But, by ’65 it was not only exotic, but also very rare, as only 771 units were built that year making it the rarest year for fuel injection. As a result, it was also the last year it was available on a Corvette until the introduction of electronic F.I. in ’82. Drum brakes were also last offered in ’65, as disc brakes were standard equipment that year. And least we forget, the mighty 396ci big block engine was also introduced in ’65! A milestone year indeed!
This outstanding example came to us from a local collector/restorer who restored it around ’12. It was an extensive frame-off and very correctly done, as all of his cars were. Upon completion, the car was judged Bloomington Gold and N.C.R.S. Top Flight!
