The 1965 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Convertible that Sotheby’s has up for auction is something special. Its candy red paint job and acerbic lines turn heads wherever it goes. Corvette’s have aged well in the eyes of drivers and critiques alike, but there was nothing like them in the ’60s. That was their heyday.
This specific ’65 has been restored to perfection. From the three mesmerizing ridges on the hood, to the tines on the undersized wheels, to the chrome spoiler framing the rear of the vehicle, nothing was left out in this cars rebirth.
Just as impressive as the exterior, stepping inside the Stingray brings about feelings of grandeur and excellence. Toned leather seats, a pristine matte black dash, and a woodgrain steering wheel highlight an impressive array of instruments and features set in chrome.
As cool as all of that is, maybe the best angle to admire this baby from, is the rear. The dual exhaust pipes hanging under chrome guards and twin brake lamps on either side create an imposing view for any and all drivers who might be behind the Corvette on the freeway.
