Welcome to StreetDreamsTexas as we conclude our 19th year in the classic and muscle car business. As America's longest lived sports car, every generation of the Chevrolet Corvette is collected and admired by different types of people for various reasons. When pressed, however, most of these people would place the C2 (2nd gen., 1963-1967) at the top of the Corvette hierarchy. And at the pinnacle of desirability for C2 Sting Rays are the big block cars (1965-1967) that cemented the Corvette's legendary status. This gorgeous Goldwood Yellow (XX) 1965 Corvette convertible is an excellent example of the first year of the fire-breathing big blocks. Lurking beneath the correct domed hood is the fierce 396/425 (BCN 3855962, CD C 17 5 or 3/17/65) which sends its copious power through a Muncie 4-speed manual transmission, then back to the correct (AU=1965 4-speed, 396, 3.36 Posi) rear end. The block of this engine has been decked, but the block casting date (C 17 5) and the rear end assembly date (4 12 65) both correctly precede the body build date (J13, or May 13). The car sports beautiful paint, a new top, and good trim, upholstery, carpet, and gauges. Comfort and reliability have been enhanced with tasteful upgrades including a Vintage Air A/C system with aluminum radiator, MSD ignition, and gold stripe radial tires on knock-off wheels. You haven't lived until you've run a big block Sting Ray down a country road with the top down. Be aware, however, that it's VERY addictive! Street Dreams (830-997-1950) is a full service dealership that can assist with worldwide delivery, insurance, and financing options.
