Classic Mastery Unleashed: The Mighty 1965 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe 396/425 4-Speed

This 1965 Chevrolet Corvette coupe was originally delivered to British Columbia, Canada. It received an NCRS Top Flight award in 1995 and obtained Bloomington Gold certification in 2020. Painted in Goldwood Yellow with white leather seats, the vehicle is driven by a 396ci L78 V8 engine coupled with a Muncie four-speed manual transmission.


It comes equipped with a PosiTraction differential, 15-inch cast aluminum wheels, four-wheel disc brakes, side-exit exhaust outlets, power windows, chrome bumpers, and an AM/FM radio. Purchased by the current dealer in 2023, this C2 Corvette is available in Florida, complete with NCRS documentation, an MCACN award, the owner’s manuals, and a clean Florida title.

The 15″ cast aluminum wheels feature knock-off hubs and are mounted with BFGoodrich Silvertown Radial narrow-whitewall tires. The C2 was the first Corvette to offer fully independent suspension, with upper and lower control arms at the front and a three-link setup with a transverse leaf spring at the rear. Braking is handled by four-wheel discs.
