The 1965 Chevrolet Corvette continued on the success of the mid-year String Ray with subtle changes. The hood vents were removed, the trio of fender vents now effectively reduced engine heat and the wheel covers were redesigned. It would be the final year of the expensive L84- 327ci/375hp fuel-injected motor, with heavier big block displacement engines aiming to be the cure for more horsepower. Also new for 1965 were standard 4-wheel disc brakes vastly improving the stopping power of .....
America's favorite sport car! It proved to be a successful year and Chevrolet sold 23,564 examples, of which only 8,186 were fastback coupes!

We are very excited to represent this 1965 Corvette Sting Ray Coupe! Finished in Rally Red (originally F-F - Nassau Blue) over Black Leather (originally STD – Black Vinyl). This Corvette retains its number's matching L84 327ci/375 horsepower V8 engine along with its Rochester Ram-Jet #7017380 fuel injection unit, original double-hump heads, Winters aluminum intake, 7-ribbed aluminum valve covers, ignition shielding, and correct exhaust manifolds. The Muncie transmission code indicates it is a later 1969 M-21 close-ratio unit. The rear axle is the date-code correct 3.36:1 Posi-Traction.

Standard features on this Corvette include windshield washer, faux wood steering wheel, power radio antenna, and carpeted floor mats. It now possesses an upgraded AM/FM/Cassette radio in the stock location along with cast aluminum knock-off wheels from Corvette America with Uniroyal Tigerpaw 205/75R15 whitewall tires.

Previously a California car belonging to a San Jose collector from 1990-2015, it would later travel to Sarasota, Florida for a comprehensive restoration. This included a complete detailing of the engine compartment to include correct upper & lower GM radiator hoses and tower clamps, heater hoses with pinch clamps, decals, and more. The exterior was professionally refinished in Rally Red with all new door and hood weather stripping installed as well as new interior leather seats and floor carpeting to complete the cosmetic restoration.

It shows only the most minimal signs of wear and continues to show as a very fresh restoration. Upon arrival to the St. Louis Car Museum & Sales, we had the complete fuel system drained with the lines flushed. The Rochester fuel-injection unit was removed and thoroughly cleaned, then received new pump seals, injection pump shaft kit with Viton seal, and tuned to perfection! We also replaced the distributor seals, spark plugs, fuel filter, engine oil & filter, radiator coolant, and radiator cap. Further improvements included new rear brake calipers & metallic pads, windshield wiper system, new wiper blades, battery cable, and bled the brake system for new fluid. This beautiful Fuelie now shows just 85,720 miles on the odometer. It is remarkable road car that should impress any Mid-year Corvette enthusiast with its performance! We feel confident that the next owner will have a blast driving the last of the fuel-injected Corvette Sting Rays until throttle-body injection was introduced in 1982! This special car represents one of just 771 high-performance Fuelie's built this final year making them a certain blue chip future investment! Please don't hesitate to ask any additional questions! Thanks for looking!
