Description

This Milano Maroon example easily shows why. Powered by the 365 HP variant of the venerable 327 CI V-8, the engine enjoys a 4-barrel carburetor atop a Winters aluminum intake manifold, finned aluminum valve covers, side-exit exhaust and a 4-speed manual transmission. It’s all kept cool courtesy of a Harrison aluminum radiator. The black interior features a heater, defroster, simulated wood-grain steering wheel, clock and a Delco radio with a power antenna, and it can be protected from the elements with a white folding convertible top or removable hardtop, giving passengers the best of both worlds. White stripe tires wrap steel wheels topped with spinner wheel covers, and the entire scene is very dignified with a sporting edge like few others. Known as the midyear Corvettes, the 1963-67 Sting Rays largely set the tone for future Corvettes to follow—the hidden headlights, sweeping hardtop roofline, arched fenders over the wheels, speared hood design and more defined character traits for which Corvettes would become known. Particularly during the 1960s, Corvette engineers and designers worked diligently to enhance and improve performance, comfort, safety and style, and 1965 was a pinnacle year for the brand with the introduction of the 396 CI V-8 engine and 4-wheel disc brakes. Interestingly, too, the chassis design would largely sustain through the 1982 model year, lending credence to exactly how well it was engineered. This Milano Maroon example with the ultra-high-performance 327/365 HP V-8 engine, side exhaust and auxiliary hardtop is a fine representative of the midyear Corvette.
