Chevrolet Corvette 327/375 Coupe
1965 marked a number of significant refinements for the Corvette. Most apparent were the trio of vents resembling shark gills in the front fenders, a cleaner hood void of styling indentations and crisper, more legible instrumentation. Small-block power remained the same as 1964, but four-wheel disc brakes became standard equipment, giving the Corvette the stopping power to match its get-up-and-go.
Chevrolet built 8,186 coupes compared to 15,376 convertibles for the model year. The division cleverly advertised that American sports cars look all alike; the ad featuring eight photographs of the identical Corvette alluded to the fact that Corvette remained America’s only true sports car.
This car was auctioned off by RM Auctions in June of 2010 at the Town and Country Resort & Convention Center, San Diego, California.
375 bhp, 327 cu. in. V8 engine, Rochester Ramjet Fuel Injection, four-speed manual transmission, four-wheel fully independent suspension, four-wheel disc brakes. Wheelbase: 98"
