Rally Red w/Black interior, 327 (N.O.M.), 4-spd. manual transmission.
When the second generation Corvette came into production as a ’63 model, it was a real game-changer for America’s first (and only, at the time) sports car. The advances in design were evident at first glance. And the introduction of a Coupe for the first time in the line-up gave the buying public even more choices . . . and a degree of practicality, as well! But even with the addition of the Coupe, the Convertible was still king! At least in terms of sales. We guess there really isn’t any substitute for top down, wind in the face motoring down the coast . . . or anywhere else for that matter! The thing is, when it comes to vintage Corvettes, and mid years in particular, you seldom see them on the road anymore. The reasons may be they’re too valuable to take out on anything but the nicest of days. And when you do, you worry about leaving them unattended in some parking lot that’s out of your sight! And that’s really a shame! Because these classics were designed and built to be driven! Yeah, we know. Some of you would prefer to take your N.C.R.S. winning ’63-’67 on a short jaunt to your local “Cars and Coffee” event on a nice Sunday morning. Then carefully drive home wipe ‘er down and put a car cover over her in the garage until the next reason comes up to take her out again. And you know what? There’s absolutely nothing wrong with that. We all enjoy out cars in different ways. But for those of us who feel the only way to truly enjoy our Corvette is behind the wheel on a long road trip, the “trailer queen” just won’t work for them. so what’s the solution? A driver-quality Corvette! Like this one, perhaps . . .
We got this ’65 from a local, So. CA. client who had owned it for 30 years! It’s a real Rally Red car with Black leather interior that was added later. It runs very strong with a 327/300hp small block as its motorvation and a 4-spd. that shifts quite nicely. The White soft top in in excellent shape without any tears and the interior is stock, but features a hidden audio system tucked away in the glove box. Is it an N.C.R.S. contender? Nope. A show car? Nah. But, you can get behind the wheel without hesitation and go anywhere you want! Even if there’s the possibility of light showers in the forecast. Who cares? A little rain never hurt anyone. Want to go to dinner with your significant other in the ’65? Go for it! Just tell the valet you’re keeping an eye on him! This is vintage Corvette enjoyment in its purest form. Just turn up the tunes and rock down the highway!
