1965 Corvette Stingray Convertible
This car was built on March 31, 1965
(Happy 55th birthday)
It is showing 48275 miles on the gauge, which we believe to be accurate.
This is a really nice drivers car. Excellent example of a mid year vette. It runs and drives great. I am sure it needs a little adjustment after winter storage.
I have owned this vehicle since 2008. My priorities in life have changed and I want to move on to my next project.
I am not in a hurry to sell it so please no low ball offers.
Everything except engine is year correct and numbers matching to my understanding.

This car is just stunning.

Chrome is in great condition.
