This Corvette just exudes originality and Corvette small block performance from the minute you open the hood and see the 327-cubic-inch 300 horse V8 engine in it.
This engine gives sprightly around-town performance and cruises at highway speeds at no more than an easy loaf. Those 327’s had great cylinder heads with big inlet valves, used hydraulic valve lifters, wedge-type combustion chambers, long-life rams head cast iron exhaust manifolds flowing into the side-pipes, and an aluminum intake and four-barrel carb.
Ours has the correct chrome open air cleaner, factory finned aluminum Chevrolet script valve covers, orange painted block, shielded distributor, and backed by a 4-speed and a correctly restored chassis with all the right parts.
This restored Sting Ray offers a completely luxurious driving environment. For 1965, the interior features red individual twin bucket seats that have a factory bolster-like design for more seating comfort and better lateral support.
The red theme extends to the carpet, door panels, and dual sun visors with controls for the outside-air-type heater and defroster located on the central console along with the electrical clock and radio controls and vent controls that are located under the instrument panel on each side of the steering column.
Matched speedometer and tachometer are the primary instruments in the Sting Ray with a re-settable trip odometer, head-light switch, radio, head-lamp retractor switch, hood release, and four-position ignition switch to complete the instrument panel with the great factory wood steering wheel also.
The styling on our 1965 Sting Ray is beautiful and ours is covered with its bright red paint job flowing over the hood and louvers behind the front wheels that help increase air flow through the engine compartment, giving it both an aggressive and sophisticated look.
All the emblems, the rear bumpers and taillights, door handles, the flip-up gas cap, and the black convertible top remain in restored as-new condition as well as the knock-off wheels with tri-bar spinners and Goldline tires which recreate the original look.
More than ever previously, the 1965 restored Corvette Roadster we have here at Skyway Classics, is luxurious transportation for two, backed by the 327 cubic inch engine that will give you a sporty and pleasant driving experience.
