The black-on-black Sting Ray features its original, matching-numbers L76 engine, a 327/365 HP small-block combination that offered high-revving performance without the added weight of the new-for-1965 big-block engine. The L76 features an 11.0:1 compression ratio and a solid-lift camshaft combined with a factory-installed aluminum intake and Holley 4150-series 4-barrel carburetor. Horsepower is sent to the rear end efficiently through its matching-numbers 4-speed manual transmission. The independent front and rear suspension offers excellent handling capabilities and weight balance. Original wheel covers and authentic goldline bias-ply tires provide the proper look and ride quality for this American sports car. The Corvette is well-documented with its original warranty booklet, as well as ownership history and documentation from its extensive restoration HIGHLIGHTS Matching numbers 327/365 HP V-8 engine Matching numbers 4-speed manual transmission Comprehensive restoration NCRS Duntov—rare two-time winner NCRS Top Flight (national, regional and local) NCRS Performance Verification 2019 MCAN Gold Concours Protect-O-Plate Ownership history and restoration paperwork Black exterior and interior 7,000 RPM tachometer 160 MPH speedometer Goodyear Goldline tires With a long list of accolades and excellent documentation, this 1965 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe offers a rich legacy to go along with its outstanding appearance. One of only 1,191 cars produced with Tuxedo Black paint, it offers a rare combination that truly accentuates the sleek body lines, which are a trademark of the popular second-generation Corvette design. This beautifully restored example is part of the Drummond Collection, and it has spent several years on the Corvette show circuit after its intense restoration. The car has been awarded NCRS Top Flight honors at national, regional and chapter levels, and it is a two-time NCRS Duntov Mark of Excellence winner. One particular accomplishment, the NCRS Performance Verification (a requisite before earning the Duntov Mark of Excellence), speaks highly of the car’s functionality. The Performance Verification process includes a checklist of more than 150 items, confirming that all of the car’s features and functions work to factory specifications. It’s a grueling test that proves that the car isn’t just a pretty face. Most recently, the car was awarded Gold in Concours judging at the 2019 MCACN event.
