Description

That engine is an RPO-code L84, the 327 CI small-block V-8 with Ramjet fuel injection. Model year 1965 marked its final year of availability, and it was rated at 375 HP at 6,200 RPM and 350 lb-ft of torque at 4,400-4,800 RPM, according to factory literature from the period. A close-ratio 4-speed manual transmission sends the fuelie’s power to BF Goodrich Silvertown Goldline tires, which are mounted to knock-off alloy wheels. Behind those wheels are Sport Master disc brakes at all four corners, a former option made standard equipment for the model year.
That addition was one of the biggest changes for the Corvette in 1965, though there were minor styling revisions, including the addition of three vertical (non-functional) louvers behind the front wheels, a blacked-out grille and a new hood design without the indentations that had been present since the Sting Ray’s 1963 introduction. New bolsters in the bucket seats added lateral support, and new molded panels covered the seatbacks. This Corvette is painted in its correct Rally Red, while its black interior looks factory fresh, right down to the instructional tag on the Delco AM/FM radio in the center of the instrument panel. In addition to the judging sheets mentioned, the Corvette is being sold with an owner’s manual, warranty booklet and an instruction manual for the radio.
