This 1965 Chevrolet Corvette has a nice survivor story, and it also includes the numbers-matching L75 V8 and four-speed. And more than just a barn find style, there are also the right signs of investment for those who would like a survivor that’s also a driver.

The story we’re told on this Sting Ray is that it was parked around 1972 and resurrected in 2012. That’s why the actual miles odometer is so low. And there are even the little extras, like a fuel log book, to help document the mileage and show this was enthusiast owned. We all like a good barn find tale like this, especially when the appearance does the talking for us. The Rally Red paint appears to be the original factory application, and it has maturity throughout the finish to let you know it’s unique. So while you could respray this drop-top or add a new roof, you’ll miss out on the particularly strong survivor community amongst the Corvette clan. They even gave this paint a good polish so that originality can still have the right touch of sunshine glow you want on a convertible. You have the right stock pieces looking good with just the right amount of age to further this car’s unique story. It includes chrome bumpers, hidden headlights, ribbed rockers, and stock wheel covers. Plus, there is even the kind of cool custom details you’d see done to these C2s back in the day, like the triple tail light arrangement.

Just like the exterior, the interior looks and feels like a barn find. So it’s a detailed survivor, right down to the working interior light and power windows. But there are also the correct details to remain a true cruiser, including the good-looking seat covers. And the sports steering wheel, telescopic column, bright shifter, and full gauges – with large speedo and tach – deliver that ideal driver’s car feeling.

This was born an L75-spec car. It gave you a healthy upgrade in power over the standard 327 cubic-inch V8. It was a great option when new, so it’s great to have the numbers-matching motor under the hood today. We were also told that the engine was rebuilt around the time of the car’s resurrection in 2012. This is reaffirmed by the right newer-looking components and a fundamentally strong-running nature. And you have a proper console over this V8 with its numbers-matching four-speed manual transmission. And speaking of control, you have a fully independent suspension, and this was the year the Corvette introduced four-wheel disc brakes for road cars.

Complete with maintenance records, this is a remarkable survivor, number-matching StingRay convertible. And while you may want to make additional investments if you’re looking to drive to the far-away Corvette events, you also instantly understand the level of appeal of something that’s both preserved and distinct at first glance.
