Pure Eye Candy, 1965 Corvette Pro-Tour coupe. This American Dream Machine is fresh out of our body shop with brand new House Of Kolors, Candy Brandywine paint job that took countless hours of work to produce the jaw dropping affects of this amazing color. The paint is incredible in the sun as you can see by the pictures. The stainless and chrome are also in great shape and compliment the car well. This drop dead gorgeous Stingray was owned by a meticulous mechanic and it was upgraded in many ways for performance and driving pleasure. A 6500 rpm redline tach suggests this car started life as higher horsepower car and is now even higher, upgraded to a 383 stroker motor pushing out over 400HP, cooled by an aluminum radiator, launched by a Hurst competition shifter, and stopped by 4 wheel disc brakes. This Corvette was inherited by a family member out of their dad's estate. He had enjoyed this car very much and it deserved the stunning paint job we gave it. The odometer is showing only 56100 miles and the family member felt the mileage was correct but could not verify that fact. We feel this could be a low mileage car based on the over all condition of the body and frame. Very nice black interior with great looking instrument cluster has clear crisp gauges and the original AM/FM radio is still intact as well as a crack free dash. This stunning car is completed by brand new Knock Off wheels with polished centers and new redline tires.

"The Chevrolet Corvette, known colloquially as the Vette or Chevy Corvette, is a sports car manufactured by Chevrolet. The car has been produced through seven generations. The first model, a convertible, was introduced at the GM Motorama in 1953 as a concept show car. Myron Scott is credited for naming the car after the type of small, maneuverable warship called a corvette. Originally built in Flint, Michigan and St. Louis, Missouri, since 1981, the Corvette has been manufactured in Bowling Green, Kentucky and is the official sports car of the Commonwealth of Kentucky. While always being an automobile known for speed and performance throughout its history, the Corvette has evolved throughout the generations into becoming the widely regardedalthough never officially declaredflagship model of the Chevrolet car brand."
"The second generation (C2) Corvette, which introduced Sting Ray to the model, continued with fiberglass body panels, and overall, was smaller than the first generation. The C2 was later referred to as mid-years. The car was designed by Larry Shinoda with major inspiration from a previous concept design called the "Q Corvette," which was created by Peter Brock and Chuck Pohlmann under the styling direction of Bill Mitchell. Earlier, Mitchell had sponsored a car known as the "Mitchell Sting Ray" in 1959 because Chevrolet no longer participated in factory racing. This vehicle had the largest impact on the styling of this generation, although it had no top and did not give away what the final version of the C2 would look like. The third inspiration was a Mako Shark Mitchell had caught while deep-sea fishing."
"Four-wheel disc brakes were introduced in 1965, as was a "big block" engine option: the 396 cu in (6.49L) 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."
